  • Friday, October 28th Preliminary Boutique and Study Group set-ups.

In addition to display equipment, we are asking member-sellers to bring their items (tagged and inventoried), hoping we can get some areas ready early. Come any time between 11:30AM and 4:00PM.

  • Saturday, October 29th Final set-up of Boutique and Study Groups. Member-sellers MUST have their inventory to the Boutique between 8:00AM and 10:00AM. Please ….no stragglers as it creates display chaos at the last minute!

Thank you all for the patience and support you have shown as we have sailed our “ship” into new and exciting seas. It is not always easy to do things differently, but change can be a good thing … and our upcoming event is going to be a huge success!
