This is a wonderful new location for us, and is a little larger and much nicer than our old location. In past years we have always sold out of dealer tables, and had a waiting list for cancellations.
Note: For our 2014 show we sold more tables than will put us at ”sold out” in this new 2015 venue.
· 8′ Dealer tables are $35.00 each. Limit 3.
· This new location will allow us to arrange the show layout as will best accommodate the number of tables needed.
· Tables will still be assigned on a first-paid basis.
· Dealer contracts will be available in May 2015.
· We will pass them out at the Mansfield Bottle Show on Saturday May 9, 2015.
· Contracts will then be available here online on Monday May 11, 2015. New: You can pay online with Paypal.
· Sunday October 18, 2015
· The show is held at the Sterling Center Reception Hall
4570 Fostoria Avenue, Findlay, Ohio 45840

· Show is in a heated building, w/tons of restrooms, and a food concession inside with lots of comfy seating.
· Early Bird Hours: 7-9am – Tickets are only $10 and include complimentary Coffee and Donuts until 9am.
· Early Bird Session is Sunday only, not Saturday.
Early Bird Buyers Admission on Sunday morning, from 7-9am, is just $10. You’ll get first pick when the dealers are still setting up, and free donuts and coffee while they last!
There are several SUNDAY ONLY dealers inside who do NOT set up on Saturday, PLUS the outside dealers only set up on Sunday morning, so there’s plenty of fresh merch to choose from for Sunday’s Early Bird buyers!
Saturday Oct. 17 is for dealers only, with our famous dinner. Sorry, no public early bird admission on Saturday. You must have a dealer contract.
There are always plenty of outside spaces available (weather permitting). Most years the day is nice enough, and we have several outside dealers. Even if it’s cold, there are always a few hardy souls who set up out there. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for sunshine this year.
