I just got notice that my entry for the enamelists society exhibition (this one) was not accepted. I am ok with that, what kind of itches me is that there was a participation fee, of 30€, and this money they keep to… keep. I was wondering if they just took everyone’s money or only the money from the accepted entries. They charged my card almost immediately, so, well, they take everyone’s money.
I am just used to how things work in Europe, I guess, where almost everything is subsidized, including agriculture, and you already pay enough money for other people’s endeavors through your taxes.
As Pim said, it is the US… there you have to pay for everything. I guess so.
Well… to Etsy it goes ;P
