for hanging items is not provided, but exhibitors may display goods or
signs on their own tables or canopies; (4) The Market provides electricity
for lighting, but no electric space heaters are permitted; (5) The Market
also provides propane heaters for visitor and exhibitor comfort; ((6)
Exhibitors must furnish their own tables and chairs.

You must also plan to have your booth open the ENTIRE Market. You should not
close down early. Those doing so will not be invited back. If you sell out
