You can get the flannel backed vinyl ones for about $6 at Walmart and they are reusable. Otherwise, Dollar Tree, Party City, just about anywhere. You can also purchase fabric, including flannel backed vinyl, at Joann’s and other area fabric stores.
Since you need to cover the front of your table to the floor, consider bringing tape or tablecloth clips to attach your tablecloth to the table and keep it from sliding away.
Each exhibitor will have one 8′ table similar to that pictured here. You may not bring your own tables into the event, unless you previously made arrangements with me.
All tables must be covered with a table cloth, or cloth & skirt, to the floor. Empty cartons must be stored under your table and not be visible to guests. We will not have table cloths with us that day, so make sure you come prepared.
There will be FREE WiFi access in Conference Room A & B, the reception area and the rotunda. WiFi access does not stretch beyond those areas.
Be aware, like with all WiFi service, once there are a lot of people on it, it slows down or could crash (hasn’t happened in the past, but lets be prepared for the worst). If you need WiFi for running credit cards, bring a backup so that you can still take a person’s payment information and process it again after the event if necessary.
We will be collecting non-perishable food items and toiletries during Shop4Charity.
To make it easier for people to donate, we have three donation drop off locations for you to drop off items now through Friday, November 1st.

Whether you need business cards, a banner for you booth, product labels, or promotional items, Vistaprint is a great small business resource. Most printing companies have set up and screen fees, or minimum requirements that would take a small business owner a year or more to get through, but at Vistaprint, you can get the small runs of the items that you need, when you need them.
Today’s Vistaprint Groupon will get you $70 worth of custom printing for just $17. You have until 10/13 to use your Groupon. There is a limit of 1 Groupon per person, but you may buy an additional voucher as a gift.

I am pleased to announce that this fall we will be supporting The Crisis Ministry of Mercer County.
Partnering with our community to achieve food, housing, and employment stability for our neighbors in need.
From immediate basic needs, to long-term self-sufficiency, the Crisis Ministry’s integrated services form a trusted community presence and stabilizing force for low-income families and individuals across Mercer County. Whether experiencing food insecurity, facing eviction or another housing crisis, or working toward sustainable employment, neighbors turn to the Crisis Ministry during a time of need. Operations in downtown Princeton, downtown Trenton, and south Trenton put the organization within reach from any corner of Mercer County.
