NOTES FOR DEALERS 


Load in can start at 2 PM Friday afternoon.  Set up must wait until tables are laid out.  Dealers can help.  All dealers should consult the table layout map and note 6' and 8' tables are indicated.  Set-up can continue until midnight and occur between 7:30 AM and 10 AM Saturday.  Breakdown should be complete by 6:00 PM.  


The will be a uniformed Security guard near the front door and then patrolling throughout the show.

Traffic flow with adequately wide aisles is very important.  No creative placement of tables by the dealers is allowed. Only the table plan indicated by the organizer and shown below is allowed.   Fire code requires better traffic flow than we had last year. Therefore fewer table will be offered.


Dealers must not leave ANY trash at the show.  Trash barrels are for visitor use and food waste only.


Table coverings must be black CERTIFIED "fire RESISTANT fabric".  Fabric that has added fire RETARDANT causes toxic fumes when ignited, and is a threat to fire fighter's health.   There is a limited supply of table covering supplied for $8.00 yard x 60".  Last year's covering was thin and easily torn.  Use what you bought last year if you like.   Seattle Fabrics has certified table coated nylon covering for $8.50 per yard.  They also have a black coated acrylic table covering at $5.00 per yard.   It is not certified but it doesn't flame when exposed to a propane torch.  It melts.   Seattle Fabrics is a nice store at 87th and Aurora Avenue North.


There is a refrigerator available in the center South alcove.  Athena's food truck will be available in the late morning and early afternoon each day. 

Final confirmation must have been made by payment in full to Bart Cannon, 1041 NE 100th Street, Seattle, WA 98125 between January 21 and arrive at the address shown below by April 30, 2016.   Dealers who have complied are shown in red in the roster.  Those dealers that are late will lose their seniority, and likely their tables.

Contract will be sent by email and the last page of which must be signed and returned with payment by regular U.S. mail by April 31 to:       Bart Cannon / 1041 NE 100th Street,  Seattle, WA 98125


All dealer spaces will have electric power limited to 800 watts.  Dealers will need their own multi-strips for power distribution to lighting.


WiFi is available at the Lake City Community Center.  Password will be provided to dealers.

Tables and chairs must be clean and placed on loading carts following the end of the show. 

Alcoholic beverages are not permitted in the Lake City Community Center. 

The center has a wooden dance floor and any spills must be carefully cleaned. AVOID spills !

After setup dealers should park at a distance from the center in order to allow easier visitor parking. 

Provide links to your mineral business websites and they will be included in the website. 


Last year and the year before some serious thefts occurred.  Dealers might contemplate video recording of their table activity.   There are some simple methods to do this for around $100.  Use of a smart phone might result in theft of the smart phone.  Deer-Cams can be obtained for as little as $49.00.


I've notified the blind community about the show.  You might want to bring a box of finger friendly minerals.  Half the fun of native copper is its density and sculpture.  Never mind that it is the only red metal.
