VENDOR INFORMATION:
There will be plenty of space for vendors. Check in time is 7:30am on

for more info http://www.tripsforkids.org

A Swappers’ area will also be available for smaller sellers (no advanced
reservations taken). If you wish to sell up to 15 items plus up to 4
bikes, you may tend your items for sale in a common area with other
“swappers”. Every swapper must register upon arrival. The daily
registration fee for the swappers area is $25 (plus an additional $10
per bike; up to 4 bikes max; total registration for 4 bikes and 15 items
would be $65). We will also collect 15% of sales (10% of bike sales) at

Kids representative. No advance contract necessary for this category of
"seller". Check in time for this area is 8:30am

If you wish to consign bikes to Trips For Kids to sell for you the fee
is $10 per bike and 20% of the selling price. This fee covers both days
at the swap but you must pick up your bike(s) at the end of each day.
Bring your bike(s) in early on swap day (8:30am). No advance call or
contract is necessary.

The space rental fee DOES NOT include any other supplies or parking. You
must supply your own tables, chairs and display fixtures.


WE CAN USE VOLUNTEERS & DONATIONS!
Trips for Kids welcomes your volunteer help and donations. During the
Swap, we need many volunteers to keep the Swap rolling. Year round we
need volunteers to help on our rides, or in our after school programs
teaching bike repair, environmental education, computer skills and
homework tutoring. Other ways to contribute are through financial
donations or donations of your used bikes, bike equipment and clothing,
which we sell in our Re-Cyclery BikeThrift Shop at 610 Fourth Street.
