Artist Trading Post

Do you like trading? Have unused or overstocked art supplies? Bring your items and you'll be able to swap or barter your offerings to MAEA members on Friday night. No money is to be exchanged per campground rules. What to bring: new or used tradable art supplies and a bag or box to take stuff home in. The goal is to get rid of items you can't use or no longer want and to gain items you can use and want! Limit what you bring to what you can fit in a lap-sized box. Be prepared to take back home with you whatever you don't end up bartering or give away. For more information contact Andrea Aeschliman at andrea.aeschliman@sjsd.k12.mo.us
