Acquisition & Use of Dealer's Den Space-----

  • When Dealer's Den tables are filled, additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Dealers do not owe any payment until a table becomes available to them.

  • Full tables are approximately 8' by 24"

  • If you have special physical needs, such as handicapped access, Service Animals, large display(s), or preference to sit near/away from another dealer, please let us know as soon as possible. We will try to fill as many requests as we can, however it is not guaranteed a request can be honored; being denied a special request is not grounds for a table refund. The earlier you tell us, the more likely we are to be able to fill a request.

  • No Dealers Den space may be shared or resold without permission from the Dealer's Den Coordinator or a Board member.


----- Electric power-----

  • Electrical outlets will not be available in the Artist Alley. If you want power, consider buying a Dealer's Table.
