FINE ARTISTS & CRAFT VENDORS:  Please read the Rules/Regulations section below.  We are especially seeking arts and crafts with a nautical theme.  This does not preclude other arts and crafts from applying.  Other types of vendors such as culinary items (e.g., sauces and dips) or products (e.g., soaps, lotions) are welcome to apply as these items do not need to be handmade.
