SHREWSBURY – Applications to be a vendor at the Shrewsbury Council on Aging’s Artisan Exposition are due on Sept. 30.

The expo, which will be an opportunity for local artisans to sell their products, will be Dec. 4 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The maximum space available for a vendor’s booth is 10 feet by 10 feet. Vendors must bring their own tables, though the COA has six foot round tables that can be used for a $10 fee.

Space can be rented for a nonrefundable fee of $25. The fee is waived for MySeniorCenter users with 25 scans into the kiosk within the last six months. Proceeds from the reservations will fund an account used for the COA’s vans and drivers.
