·         Only one artist/artisan or one business entity may occupy a booth. In addition, all artists must be present, including those represented by a business entity.

·         All items for sale must be hand crafted by the artist exhibiting them.  Items sold must be similar to the work submitted for jury with the application

·         In our location at the Patriot Center, we have 64 vendor spaces.  We want to keep the show fresh and interesting to the public, striving for a diversity of art                forms. Therefore , we will be limiting the number of artists in any given category.  Acceptance in the past does not guarantee acceptance in this show                         however, returning vendors may be preferred in the jury process. 


·         When planning your booth, please consider arranging it so that visitors can come into your space, rather than stand in the aisle to view your products.

·         Prices for all items should be clearly stated.

·         To create attractive and neat displays, we expect all tables to be covered with fabric or tablecloths, with the exception of finished furniture items.  All set up              items, such as storage containers, should be kept out of sight. Remember, presentation is important!


·         All exhibits must be show-ready by 9:45 Saturday morning and must remain in place until 4:00 PM. Early tear-down will result in your exclusion from                  future shows.
