There were a total of 85 vendors at the LDSBA Convention this year; less than 20% were publishers or distributors of books. The rest were what we call sidelines—art, candy, food storage, t-shirts, ties, games, rings, scripture totes, and all that other stuff you can find at your local LDS bookstore.
So let’s start with Art. These are just a few of the art vendors who were there.
Golden Street Artworks features the work of Scott T. Peterson. He has a really cute calendar (both a 2010 and a generic 2 year calendar), posters, greeting cards, stickers and a bank.
I didn’t get a photo of their booth, but I was very impressed with them last year and was happy to see them back again.
A new art company (new to me) is Sculpture Grove. They have a 12″x10″ solid cast bust of Joseph Smith. It was really attractive and detailed.
If anyone has pictures of these booths, send them to me.
