Booths initially will be assigned by Lottery. By completing and returning your Booth Reservation Form (two pages) to MESA by April 9, 2017, your reservation will automatically be entered into the Booth Lottery; thereby increasing your chances of getting your desired booth space. The Booth Lottery does not guarantee you one of your choices, but it does give everyone an equal chance. Booth reservations received after this date will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Following the Booth Lottery, please check the floorplan for booth availability. MESA reserves the right to make changes to the floor plan if necessary.

Please send completed reservation forms to:

As an added measure, please consider covering your booth with cloths and removing rare or expensive items from your booth when the Book Bazaar is closed.
