Booth prices @ King Richard's?

(1/2) > >>

groomporter:
Elsewhere someone was saying that a booth at King Richard's was for sale for $500,000. I replied that I could see maybe $50K based on what I know of the prices for large booths at MNRF. But he swears is sources are good. I find it pretty hard to believe, anyone familiar with the booth costs there?

I asked what the size of the booth was and what had been sold out of it, but haven't seen a reply since I just posted it this morning.

Sounds almost like what a whole faire would cost, if it's on leased land.  If they're selling property too, then a Ren Faire could be in the $Millions.

That was part of the person's question. He couldn't believe a crafter would pay that much for a booth on land the fair doesn't own. But I explained that is the way most of the large fairs work, the crafters build or buy the permanent booths and pay for the upkeep.

-But $500K?? That's pretty unbelievable. The median average home price in MD is only $346K

I guess if it's a multi-unit Food Court "Booth", with the restaurant-grade appliances included, it could be $500K.

I'm pretty sure there is know way that can be right.  When the company i worked for there last year was looking to buy a booth it was a pretty good sized live in booth for 16K.
