Criteria | Rules | Policies & Venues | Applications
Due to some vendors' allergies and vulnerability to migraines, we ask that vendors refrain from wearing scented fragrances and that you apply hair spray (if necessary) before arrival or in your automobile.
If you want the reasons for any of the rules, please feel free to ask us.
Do NOT start packing up before the show ends.
Items you or your immediate family member(s) did not create or creatively alter significantly by hand are not allowed. They must have involved a certain level of handiwork, which varies depending on the item. Photography and prints must be of YOUR or your children's original photos or artwork.
Do not bring anything that you have not been approved to sell. We do this to ensure a wide variety, no duplication, and fair competition for all. If you would like to bring something that is different from what you've shown us, please ask first (and submit a photo of the item using the additional photos form. Please do NOT email it). Approved items in different colours and sizes are OK. Even if the item is approved, if it is similar to what will already be in the show, it won't be allowed, in order to prevent duplication.
If you are to omit anything from your selling list, please tell the coordinator immediately. This will enable her to provide the best booth placements for everyone, including you. It will also enable another vendor to sell in that category.
The ability to order items or services outside your selling list is not permitted without approval. You could be interfering with another vendor's sales by doing this. However, you are encouraged to be ready take orders for items that are within your selling list. You might run out of a certain product, or if you fill custom orders, customers might be interested in ordering from you at the show. It's a great opportunity to take a deposit on future orders. We suggest that you bring photos of items (within your selling list) that customers can order.
If you're in 30 Craft Market, 1/2 of your displayed items may be over $30. The rest of the items must be $30 or less, including tax. $30.01 is NOT acceptable. There are no price restrictions for Artisan Dreams.
