    I said the same thing at the last craft fair I attended. The event coordinators shouldn’t rent booth space to MLMs.

    Our local one at least sequesters them all to a dark corner of the event space so you can avoid them. Its actually amazing seeing a booming Christmas show and then this little back aisle no one is going down filled with mlm crap.

    Yeah the city my work is in does a yearly street fair where local businesses get booths. This year there was maybe 8 MLM booths set up.

    I guess the city doesn't care though, as long as people are willing to pay their booth fee

    That was the biggest surprise when we started doing shows, I didn't realize there were so many kinds of MLMs. We were across from an MLM spice lady once, that's something she could easily do herself.
    We do handmade only events now and most are juried, we have to submit product photos and be accepted in order to participate.

    I do the same now. When I first started doing shows it was so disappointing to get to a crsft show and see that there were like 3 crafters and 10 mlms. People sometimes still ask me if my business is mine at it annoys me.
