       Vendor's website, preferably by Thursday so Vendor has time to prepare

       customer package Friday.

       at the curbside pick-up. NO CASH TRANSACTIONS. Curbside attendant

       will wear a fanny pack for checks.

     4. When Vendor is preparing the customer's package, they will attach an

       invoice, indicating if customer owes $ or has already paid + customer's name.

       table by 8:00 a.m., and wait until the customer arrives.
