Vendor Space Choices:

We are offering 2 different types of vendor space this swap, a 14 foot linear space or an 8 foot table.

We request that there are no more than 2 sellers at each vendor space/table.

If you want to exceed 20 gallon of aquariums use Vendor Space Choice 1, the 14 foot space using your own stands. 

Vendor Space Choice 1:  14 foot of linear space (no table) with or without electricity

Each 14 foot space is only $20, payable at the door.   We will provide 2 chairs but you bring the rest.  You bring your own vending setup, table, stands, or display.  Only concern is that you bring floor protection (coasters) for displays and stands that concentrate weight on a small area of the floor. 

Vendor Space Choice 2:   8 foot table with or without electricity

Each 8 foot table is only $20, payable at the door.  Please let us know if you need electricity.  There may be no more than a 20 gallon total of filled aquariums on each table, and any filled aquarium larger than 20 gallons must be provided with its own stand by the vendor.

Additional details to the 20 Gallons of filled tanks total on each table.

    If you exceed 10 Gallons on a table you must support the table from below.

    If you are going to exceed 20 gallons on a table, you may not.
