My brother usually attends too, so enjoys seeing my stuff if he's not gone (like this year)
I have friends and family that also enjoy to see them , but I also have many people who think I'm mad for paying what I do and that it's terrible that "celeb a.b.c ",
would charge their fans so much for a photo / auto.
My reply is made up of...
1....Most (not all) of these Celebs would pretty much be ok giving you an auto and / or a photo if you met them in the street . But then , how likely are you to meet Martin or Charlie Sheen etc in the street ?
2...I'm not paying just for the auto / photo , I'm paying a premium to SM for the fact that they've arranged for all these people to travel over to one place, and all I have to do to meet them, is go there too.
3...some of our money doesn't just go to the Celebs, but ( I expect) it also covers things like air fares , hotels etc , as well as the staff costs and rental of the Halls etc.
