Event/Application Rules & Regulations
The Cecil Floyd Elementary School PTO organizes this event as a fundraiser to benefit the children of our school. Your booth fee is a donation to the PTO and is greatly appreciated by our students. Your sales during the show are totally yours.
Every year the PTO receives more applications than can be accommodated. Therefore, to ensure a quality show, the selection of exhibitors will again be made by a panel of jurors. The jury will make selections on the basis of quality, originality, and display and to provide an overall variety in the show.
TO APPLY: Fill out the application form and return it along with three photographs and booth fee by Oct. 15, 2006. Submit to: Dorothy Alsenz, 2201 W. 24th St., Joplin, MO 64804.
3 PHOTOS: Two should be close-up photographs, revealing the quality of your art or craft, and one photo should be of your display. Photos or any other materials too large to fit in a business-size envelope will not be returned unless a postage paid envelope is provided. ALL PHOTOS SHOULD BE LABELED WITH YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.
ACCEPTANCE: Acceptance to the 2006 show is not guaranteed by participation in prior years. You will be notified of acceptance status by November 15, 2006. If accepted, NO REFUNDS will be made for any reason.
ADVERTISING: As always, the show will be highly publicized with banner signs, TV, newspapers, flyers, etc.
ELECTRICITY: Electricity is VERY limited. Please notify us if you require electricity and we will do our best. Even with notification we cannot guarantee you electricity. Extension cords are your responsibility. Cords must be secured with duct tape.
STORAGE: Storage of merchandise and space to sit will be confined to the area you have reserved. PLEASE DO NOT BLOCK THE AISLES.
SET-UP: Set-up on Friday evening, December 8, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE BEFORE FIVE ON FRIDAY! No exceptions will be made for earlier set-ups; we must have time to prepare the building for the craft show. Set-up on Saturday morning, December 9, is from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Vendors who have not checked in by 7am on Sat. will forfeit their booth space.
OUTDOOR SPACE: Outdoor space is available, but only for the tough-skinned, hardiest, die-hard crafters. Call for details.
FOOD ITEMS: The Concession Stand is a fund-raising operation for the school. Therefore, we cannot allow applicants to vend food items that would compete with items in the concession sales. If you have a FOOD ITEM that you believe does not compete, send a photo and description of the item and a copy of your current HEALTH INSPECTION CERTIFICATE along with your application for consideration. If you attempt to sell food at the Craft Show that has not been approved by the Craft Show Committee, you will be asked to put it away.
