Can I share a booth?
You may split booths, however all products to be sold must be listed on the application. In addition, photographs must be included for each artisan.
Do I need a backdrop?
Backdrops are not required, but they are strongly recommended. Backdrops help define your space, and can increase sales by keeping the customer's focus on your products instead of the booth behind you.
Is there space available for.....?
If you would like to check if your category is filled you can call (815) 878-2728 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before sending your application. Include your name, company, type of craft, phone number and the show you are interested in. Please note that spaces can fill quickly, applications must be sent immediately to hold your space.
Can I sell my home party/direct sales/consultant/buy-sell/or other non handmade product?
No. Our shows are handcrafted only, all items must be made by you.
Do I need a canopy for outdoor shows?
You must bring a canopy with proper weights for all outdoor shows. Staking is not allowed at any of our current shows.
I am interested in a show but the jury date has passed, are you still accepting applications?
We accept applications until the show is filled. While some categories fill on jury date, others may still have space available.
Will I have the same space as last year?
If you'd like to be in the same space as a previous show you must list your space number on your application. Space requests are not guaranteed.
Do I need to enclose payment with my application?
All applications must include a check for the total booth fee, however checks should be postdated for 2 months before the event. Returning exhibitors can make arrangements to exchange their check for cash the day of the show.
