This show is open to the public--FREE ADMISSION!

Please note that while this show is open to the public, many if not all, exhibitors will conduct wholesale transactions with you but the following conditions must be met: (a) the exhibitor is willing to make a wholesale transaction- some (few) vendors, mostly artisans, do not carry inventory for such transactions, (b) you have proper credentials with you (listed above), and (b) your purchase meets their minimum requirement for such a transaction (each exhibitor sets their own minimum). If you are a wholesale buyer, please bring proper credentials with you (i.e. tax resale license and business cards). If ALL conditions are NOT met, THE EXHIBITOR MAY NOT process the sale as a wholesale transaction as it will violate show policy and/or state/federal laws. Please be respectful of this and do not ask the exhibitor to risk expulsion or heavy fines for the purpose of a sale, as this may be considered criminal solicitation.

Class times vary.
