If you would like to have a space located next to an electrical outlet, be sure to make that known when returning the registration form or please call one of the Bazaar contacts listed at the end of these guidelines, and state what type of plug-in item you have. These tables are limited and will be assigned first come-first served, and your plug-in item is subject to approval.
