​​The Lake City Community Center is now managed by Seattle Parks and Recreation.  There are major changes they require which complicate running the Seattle Mineral Market this year.  .Set up time is not yet firmly established other than the 7 AM to 10 AM Saturday morning.   There will probably be an opportunity to set up some on Friday evening as early as 8 to 9 PM Friday night, but only after the tables are laid out.  It could be earlier, but any time exceeding  the   7 AM to 10 AM Saturday morning  set up must be paid for in addition to what I've already paid for.  This year the rental rates have more than doubled, and I was not given my reserved third weekend in May traditional show date.  That means some foot traffic will be lost due to the show date of Memorial Day weekend.   The weather forecast looks like it will be somewhat cool, and that is a plus because when the outdoor temp gets hotter than 80F the Community Center becomes an almost insufferable oven like container.

The cost this year will be $ 140 per 6' table and $160 for 8 foot tables.   Those who set up outside may not be required to pack up by 6 PM Sunday. . We are supposed to be out of the center by 6 PM, but there is no rental planned for after 6 PM by another group, and therefore we may be able to buy more time..

Final confirmation will follow receipt of full payment on or before May 5, 2018.   Contracts will be sent shortly.

There are no alcoholic beverages allowed.  All water spills must be cleaned up immediately. 

Only confined, well behaved small dogs are allowed at the show.

Black table coverings are encouraged.  They must be "fire resistant" not "fire retardant.   If unsure, use the match test on a scrap of the material you hope to buy.  Unlike other years, I will not be furnishing table coverings.

Tabled and chairs must be clean and placed in their storage area.

After set-up dealers should not park in the LCCCs parking area so that parking is available for visitors.

All boxes and packing materials must be taken home by the dealer.  The trash cans are for visitors only.
