** What is a hashtag?

A hashtag is a type of label or metadata tag used on social network and microblogging services which makes it easier for users to find messages with a specific theme or content. Users create and use hashtags by placing the hash character (or number sign) # in front of a word or unspaced phrase, either in the main text of a message or at the end. Searching for that hashtag will then present each message that has been tagged with it.

For example, on the photo-sharing service Instagram the hashtag #bluesky allows users to find images that have been tagged as containing the sky, and #cannes2014 is a popular tag for images from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Hashtags can be used to collect public opinion on events and ideas at the local, corporate, or world level. For example, searching Twitter for #worldcup2014 returns many tweets from individuals around the globe about the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Can I bring my child to the show?

Children are welcome at Baltimore Fine Craft Show when accompanied by an adult. Children under the age of 12 are not required to purchase tickets.
Strollers are also permitted inside the show.

I have an item that I would like to have appraised by an exhibitor? May I bring it to the show?

Due to security reasons, attendees’ items will not be allowed in to the Baltimore Fine Craft Show. It is the duty of the security officers at the entrances to check all bags coming in to the show – if you have items in your bag, you will not be allowed to bring them inside. The reasoning behind this is simple: all exhibitors are required to present customers with a “Pass Out Form” when any purchase is made. This form is required by security for anyone to bring merchandise out of show.
