Vendor/Booth Space Guidelines

Set up times: Friday, 6 PM – 8 PM and Saturday, 8 AM – 9:30 AM the day of the show.

Please have booth ready 30 minutes before doors open (by 9:30 AM).

 

Event will be in the gym, so please be mindful of the floor. There will be a plastic canvas covering the floor, so keep that in mind as you choose your displays. Tables are available (while supplies last) for a $5 non-refundable fee. Booth space is approximately 10’x10’.  Your booth space will be assigned. 

All homebased businesses are welcome, but only one representative per business will be accepted (ie., Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Norwex, etc.). The first to sign up will have the space. A waiting list will be established if more than one representative is interested.  Should there be a cancellation the first person on the list will be called. 

 

A $25 deposit is required for all vendors at registration and will be refunded after show. If you are unable to fulfill your commitment, notification to Laura Cook (515-480-5122) or Bonita Trim (515-480-1642) is needed by Sunday, March 31 for deposit refund. Otherwise your deposit will go toward the missions project. Thank you for your contribution.

 

As a fundraiser, a percentage of your sales (of any amount) will need to be set aside for the missions project (This year: African Water Wells. For more information see www.africaoasisproject.org.). Please do not display the percentage of your giving at your booth.  Giving envelopes will be provided for your convenience on the day of the sale. A basket will be onsite for giving as you leave.
