All items that are for sale will be identified with a sticker on the bottom of the entry tag. Interested buyers will contact that exhibitor using the name and phone number as listed on the entry tag. Exhibits shall be claimed upon presentation of exhibitor identification at the close of the fair. All sales are the sole responsibility of the exhibitor and must take place after check out on Sunday.
