​​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.  .Set up must be between 7 AM and 10 AM.  The rental rates have doubled.  There will be a Friday evening table layout for which I will gladly accept help.  Participating in that will most likely allow the start of individual set-up Friday night.

The cost this year will be $ 80 per 6' table and $90 for 8 foot tables.  The same as last year, but for one day only.

Those who set up outside may not be required to pack up by 6 PM.  If the two day show happens we will suffer the doubling of rental rates.  Here are the rates for a two day show:  6 ft table = $ 140, 8 ft table = $160.  The latter prices are lower than a doubling of hall rental.  My attempt to keep more of the dealers at least somewhat happy.

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.

DEALERS who have shown interest in the 2018 Show.  Confirmed but not paid, in blue.  Paid in red.

Dealers who have more than 50% mineral specimens in their show stock will be given priority over gemstone and jewelry dealers.  This was the original format for the Seattle Mineral Market.
