Items in this category must meet stringent prerequisite standards before being allowed to be exhibited. We are looking for exhibitors, who either own or represent a Tennessee Valley company or business, or who have a home based business that conducts commerce in homes or from door to door.
Examples of the type of exhibitors we are seeking: soaps, blankets, scarfs, jewelry, etc.… We are also looking for home based companies that are owner operated from the home such as Pampered Chief, Watkins, Mia Bella, Avon and the like.
Specific items prohibited: Flea market type booths selling imported goods and wares. No booths selling baseball card, comic books etc… unless those exhibitors actually have a legitimate business establishment within the retail community. No booths selling imported items that would directly conflict with the juried craft show of the festival. If you have any questions concerning our standards please feel free to contact us or submit an application for review.
If you sign an agreement/contract for this event you are expected to remain for the entire two days. EARLY PACKING, WITHOUT PERMISSION IS CONSIDERED A BREACH OF CONTRACT.
We can accept cash, check, cashiers check, or money order for booth space.
