Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.  Private parties and non-profits will be charged a nominal fee of $15 for a space, and commercial sellers will be charged $25.  After payment of sale expenses, the remaining money will be used to continue serving the medical needs of Vashon.  Any money taken in by booth holders is theirs to keep.
