Artist Alley Offerings

Cost: $150
Badges: 1
Table size: 6ft by 2ft
Applying to these tables does not limit you from having a standard table. However, it allowed for a space to have new Artists interested in selling at conventions for the first time. If this is not your first selling convention, please look into the Standard Tables.
