Tables are selling out quick! If you are even considering a spot I would not hesitate to secure your table now! I didn?t expect this to take off so well, and I am humbled with the amount of participation from hobbyist and vendors! Couldn?t do this without them!

Tables have been sold out for a while now, but I figured I would post an update and a flyer with all the vendors that will be set up at the event.

I have a few people who say they will be there at 5 or just after to help with setup. I will be heading over there at 1pm to begin running power to tables and getting things in order. I am getting things loaded up now. Lots of extension cords, cord covers, power strips, 6? tables. Plus all the raffle prizes to go still,

Had a good time at the Swap today, appreciate everyone who gave their time to make it happen. It was weird not having a table set up to sell corals. Really like the venue and good to see some faces I hadn't seen in a while.

It was good to see you for a moment! There?s a high chance we may be doing it again next year! Learned a few things from this event that I can easily adjust!

Thank you so much for coming out to vend! It was an experience for sure. Seeing it all come together made it completely worth it in the end.
