I would never even think about vending at my first event. I just had my first comp last week and it was waaaaay more work than I thought it would be and I just competed. There was on way on earth I could have vended too. By the time we had packed up and got back home I had been up for over 36 hrs straight. I was completely exhausted. I can't imagine how I would have felt if I vended too.......Don't get me wrong, I had a blast and will be doing several more comps this year but it really is a lot of work too..
