In the interest of transparency – multiple vendors withdrew at the last minute from FFF #50 in February 2018 leaving empty spaces in the grand ballroom that could have been filled by vendors on the waiting list had they communicated that they weren’t able to attend. This was a disappointment for attendees and a frustration for the Vending Team which worked for months to put together a great selection of vendors. This fee will indicate to the Vending Team that a vendor is serious and will make every attempt to be at the Winter Flea. If your company is selected for FFF #52 the application fee will be applied to your vending space fees. NELA will refund the application fee to a vendor who is not chosen for FFF5 #2. This is fee is a placeholder and *NOT* an increase in your bill.
