This seems like an easy question, but the right answer is alluding me(probably because I hate declining people, honestly.)

Generally, my applications for my AA at the con I coordinate are pretty straight forward, but today I received an applicant who wants to sell home made nail polish and beauty items. I have already gone over the FDA requirements for selling such items, but in the event that she has all the correct labeling I still feel this should be a dealer table instead of an AA table. Has anyone else approved these items in their AA before?

There's sometimes a fine line to walk between dealer table and artist table. One rule of thumb I've heard some cons use is "Can it be made in person at the table?" Obviously hand-drawn art can. Buttons could be. Prints or laminations might not be...but since the original can be made at the table and prints are just additional copies of that, it's allowed. T-shirts do not qualify and should go in dealers' room.

Could she make her own nail polish at the table? I don't know. Not sure how that's done...but if it involves boiling on a stove, then it's out. If she could make a custom color for a commission right there, then it fits.

...and I know you already looked up the regulations, but for anyone else that needs them:
