This event is organized to support artists with an opportunity to sell, trade, or give away any supplies you don’t need or wish to purchase. With no charge and no commission, it is open to any anyone who has supplies to sell or acquire.
Each person is responsible for his or her own sales. Just Bring a table and whatever necessary to display your work. Set up will be Friday afternoon, or anytime after 7:30 AM.
