Show Information

Great news! Along with our Show information and guidelines you will now have two ways to apply for shows. The first is the way you have always done it by mailing in the forms.

The second is by filling out an online form and sending it electronically using PayPal or your Credit Card to pay for your shows. You will be able to apply for as many shows & spaces as you want and enter the full amount and submit. You will get an email with a link to PayPal. There is no cost to you to use this service, it's just another way to help you make it easier. You no longer have to join PayPal to use this service.

Read the rules carefully, there have been some changes.

ENTRIES: Shows are open to all artists, craftsmen, and sculptors from all states. All merchandise is to be inside the building 1 HOUR BEFORE THE DOORS OPEN to the public and leaves you time to setup..

ADVERTISING: Our shows are extensively advertised in local media also with signs, posters, TV and some radio, online media, and more!

FEE: Amount of fee is listed with each show. No commission is charged on sales. After you have paid for two shows in full you may put deposits on future shows of at least $50. The last shows are paid first if you use this option.

SPACES: A space example: 8X6 is 8 ft wide by 6 ft deep. The first number is always the width. Anyone sharing a space with someone else is required to rent a 12 foot space.  We give you a 2 foot walk space between you and the next person on one side. This 2 foot walk space is not to be used by customers in any way. If you want to corner your tables you will need to purchase a corner space. 
 
SET UP TIME: Check each show. Merchandise must be inside the building 1 hour before the doors open and vehicles moved to their proper place.

CHILDREN: Children must stay at the booth with the parents at all times not creating a disturbance. Due to insurance issues children are not to leave the space without a parent.

REQUIREMENTS: You may bring your own tables, chairs, or rent from us if available, check with the show listing. You must supply your own clean covers, that cover the table to the floor on at least 3 sides. You will need 20-50 ft heavy duty electrical cords & power strips are highly recommended if you are using electricity. No small extension cords for long distances.
Augusta Civic Center, Electric you can only use 1 plug into their recepticle for the $35 elec, charge, you must bring your own electrical strip to use addional plugs. 
All stock boxes must be kept out of sight (under table) until the show is over unless you are restocking, absolutely no dollies will be brought in from vehicles during the show until the show is over. If a customer should get hit by a dolly or boxes brought in before the show is completely over, the crafter is liable for any injury and will have to give their insurance info to the customer.  End of show is not even 5 minutes before.
All our shows are two days, you may do one day but the price is the same and we have to know in advance as we only take a few spaces per show.

PARKING: Unload cars, vans, trucks, etc., & move immediately to the designated area before you set up. Designated areas are always the furthest spots from the door off the tar, etc., ask at the show. Do not move your vehicles to the door until the show closes and you have finished packing.

CHECKS & REFUNDS: Make checks payable to Lois Taylor. If a show is canceled by us due to no interest from crafters or if you are not accepted into a show refunds will be made-otherwise no refunds. Any show canceled by you holding only a deposit will require full payment or no other deposits will be accepted from you. You will be required to send full payments for each show applied for at this point. You may apply for as many shows as you wish & send one (1) check. No spaces may be re-rented or given to another crafter by you if canceled. If you miss a show and don't call you will not have a spot saved for the next show you applied for until we hear from you and no refunds. 

ALL DECEMBER SHOWS: Must be paid in full before you are accepted into the show. 

RETURNED CHECKS: THE FEE FOR A RETURNED CHECK IS $35.00

APPLICATIONS: Fill in ALL information for each show & return with payment. Applications will not be accepted without vehicle information and the application signed & dated.

CREDIT CARDS: We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover & Paypal for show payments.

NOTIFICATION: Notification of acceptance to shows will not be sent unless you enclose a SASPC (self addressed stamped, post card.) or ask for an email. make sure I can read it.

SHOW POSTERS: Crafters are asked to put up posters for the shows they are attending to help get the information out. They will be under the show you apply for as a PDF file. Click on it and print them out.  Add your business card to the poster to maximize your exposure.

Add your show info to Facebook, Twitter, snapchat, or any of the other online features you use.
