General Information
Each vendor will have one (8-ft long x 2-ft wide) table. There is limited space so booths will be sold on a first-come first-served basis. You will need to provide your own table skirting. Signs and banners may be hung on the front of the table, but large stands or obtrusive fixtures will not be allowed.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the Abilene Public Library. There is no guarantee electrical outlets will be available.
Fees
Each Exhibitor will be charged $10.00 and 5% of the vendor's proceeds. All money from vendor fees will be given to the Friends of the Abilene Public Library. $10.00 is due at the time of registration and 5% of proceeds is due before leaving the vendor area for the day.  Non-profit vendors will not have to pay the 5% fee.
