Examples of the type of exhibitors we are seeking: Doctors, book sellers, community promotion booths, clubs such as 4H and civic activities 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.
