Booths are currently one per vendor as space is still limited. Spaces are 8′ across x 7.5′ deep with limited side access. Vendors are free to bring their own set-up equipment and/or arrange with our staff a number of 6′ tables and chairs. Arrangement requests must be made in advance and all set-ups must fit within the confines of each booth. Electricity will be available to all vendors at no extra cost.
Vending spaces are $175 each and include two convention badges. Additional convention badges will be available to purchase at a discounted rate for vendors once their application has been accepted. There will be set-up time available on both the Friday night and Saturday morning before the Vendors’ Room opens to the public. Vending Room hours run 11am-6pm Saturday and 10am-4pm Sunday.
Merchants must be 18 years or older to apply and a Massachusetts Sales Tax ID is required. Current Massachusetts state sales tax is 6.25% and should be collected on all items with the exception of clothing or shoes less than $175. For more info go to mass.gov.
