Artist Alley area is $50 - ARTISTS ONLY - if you are a vendor set up in the artist
area you will be asked to leave.
the amount of space will be 10 feet.  Artist will get  8 foot table and chair, with about
7.5 feet of space behind the table.  Artists can purchase 2 spots, but only side to side
- no back to back artist spots are allowed.
You can build a wall behind you if you want - but please keep in mind that there will be
another artist behind you facing the opposite way - so if you wish to "team up" with
another artist and make a wall you both can share - that is fine.
Backing wall can not be more than 8 feet tall.
Please be kind to your fellow artist that is in back of you.
If we get complaints - we will not have you back in the future.  We are all in this
together and we all wanna get some exposure and make a bit of $$$.
But if you are being a pain to fellow vendors/artists........
you will not be asked to come back to other events.
