Fees (must be paid with the application): $100 for 2-day sites and $50 for 1-day sites. There is a limit of 1 inside site per vendor. Vendor spaces may be shared by 2 people (max).
All items must be handcrafted/homemade and attributable to the participating vendor. No direct sales, resales, flea market items etc. are allowed. No vendor baked goods are allowed due to the UMW bake sale.
