VENDOR APPLICATION CRITERIA
ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA – ELIGIBILITY – SELECTION
SELECTION - Our shows are juried. Our primary basis for acceptance is the quality, originality and craftsmanship of the work to be sold. Acceptance is also based on booth display, product packaging and product categories within each show so that no one category is over-weighted.
Applicants with a focus in one main product category will receive preference over applicants having multiple product lines. Applications whose main product category is not jewellery, may not sell jewellery products unless specifically juried and accepted. Reproduction aids such as moulds used in jewellery or ceramics must be created by the applying artisan.
ELIGIBILITY - You must be the designer and the creator of the work to be sold. Only work produced in Canada by you or under your direct supervision will be considered. Commercially manufactured products, work assembled from commercial kits or materials or work represented by dealers or agents will not be allowed.
PRESENTATION - The professionalism of the booth display is a major consideration in our applicant selection and is also a determination in booth placement within the show. Your booth design should enhance the quality of your work, not detract from it. Your boot display setup matters greatly to us. It is a top priority when evaluating applicants. We seek clear, professional signage, multi-level displays that are fully stocked but not overly messy, and well-lit presentations.
SPECIALTY FOODS + BODY CARE PRODUCTS - Specialty Foods And Body Care Products - We make available a limited number of booths for gourmet packaged foods and health and body care products. Food vendors will be responsible for obtaining and submitting the appropriate permits/reports to comply with permission for food sales to the public
