    Good Afternoon,
    This sounds like a fair that I would like to participate in.

    I design and handcraft jewelry out of semi-precious materials and Swarovski crystals. My jewelry runs the gamut from office-appropriate to quite fancy. My style is delicate and feminine, with a particular love of combining pearls, pink stones and black. All my earrings have sterling silver ear wire and findings.

    I can be reached on my mobile, 917-847-9455, at any time, and my mailing address is: Anna Paesler, 145 Lincoln Avenue, Apt. 7P, Staten Island, New York 10306.

    Also, what is the cost of being a seller at the fair, and what does that cost include (e.g., table? tent? amount of space? location in setting?).

    Thank you for your attention to the above.
