Last year we SOLD OUT several weeks before the show, so get your spot while they last!
1.        We will provide 2 large tents which will accommodate 6 craftsmen each.  You must provide your own table and chairs.  We also have available 1 double tent and several single tents.  Once these tents are filled, there will be no more, so reserve EARLY!
2.       You may provide your own 10’x10’ canopy with stakes and your own table and chairs. (Encouraged)
3.       A small number of tables will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and will cost $5.00.  Also, reserve these early!
4.       After long, hard thought it has been decided to raise our space fee.  Since our inception in 2012 our following has grown considerably.  Our attendance in 2012 was 350, and last year we have had 1450 customers in spite of being in competition with 3-4 additional craft fairs on that same day.  
5.       Spaces are $60.00 under our tent or $45.00 if you provide your own tent (or choose to not be under a tent).  If you are a Friends Member, you may deduct $5.00 from the space charge.
