If you have special requests, let us know what they are and we will do our best to accommodate you. We generally try to give exhibitors their same location each show. Please let us know what type of merchandise you will be selling.
Our shows are table top shows and tables are in islands shaped like rectangles. They are not skirted or draped. They are placed end to end with a three table end cap shaped like a horse shoe on the end of rows. Dealers are inside the rectangle and public walks around the outside. We have wall tables around the perimeter of the show. The wall tables have about 2 1/2 feet behind the table.
We have booth space available at many of our shows. Call for specific shows. Outside booths are available at Ventura and Phoenix shows. The booths are not draped or skirted and are a 10’x 10′ space on the floor. Please bring your own table coverings.
