2011 BEAR CREEK UNITED METHODIST WOMEN
23RD ANNUAL CRAFT BAZAAR
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15TH
VENDOR GUIDELINES

1.     We are pleased to announce our Craft Show event which will be held on Saturday, October 16th from 9:00 am-4:00 pm. (Vendors will not be allowed to begin taking down booths on Saturday prior to 4 p.m., to allow for late shoppers.) Set-up and registration will begin at 2:00 pm on Friday and must be completed by 8:00 pm. Outdoor vendors, who prefer not to leave merchandise out all night, will be allowed to set up Saturday morning at 6:00 am (NO EARLIER). We will provide Security through the night until 6 a.m. Saturday morning. Although a Private Security Officer will be walking the grounds, all valuables left will be your responsibility.

2.     We accept “Handcrafted” and “High Quality Merchant” Gift Items. “Handcrafted” being items made by the person selling the items or by a representative thereof. “High Quality Merchant” items being represented directly through the manufacturer. Any “Designer Knockoffs”, such as those found on Harwin, will NOT BE ACCEPTED. Please provide pictures of ALL TYPES of items you intend to provide for sale in your booth. We will select vendors on the basis of these items and if they do not meet our criteria we will be unable to extend you a booth for this event. We will LIMIT the number of booths sold in each category (i.e. jewelry, woodworking, candles, etc.) to ensure a fair market potential for all. Handcrafted items will receive priority. Booth spaces are approved by the UMW Executive Council and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis as registration forms & fees are received in our church office.

3.     Each Vendor has the option to provide a $20 cash donation in lieu of a Silent Auction item, with a minimum retail value of $25, that would be representative of your booth. Please keep in mind that profits from the Bazaar go to Women and Children's missions. A tax deductible donation receipt will be included with your registration packet.

4.     Bear Creek UMW will host a Hospitality Room for our paid vendors! In order to provide the utmost care and service, we are pleased to offer coffee, water, and a continental breakfast on Saturday, AND a box lunch on Saturday! We will provide free parking in our vendor/volunteer designated back lot on Saturday. If you wish to have “preferred parking”, which is closer to the FLC Building, there will be an additional fee of $10 which you can sign up for on your vendor application.

5.     As is traditional, our Church Fall Festival will be held the same day of the Bazaar which will increase show attendance and hopefully your revenue! We do an extensive amount of advertising through newspapers, neighborhood newsletters, flyers to local businesses, internet promotions and postings, radio & television ads, schools, preschools, churches, and signage placed throughout the Greater Houston Area. If you provide us with your email address, we will email a copy of our Bazaar Flyer to you. Please promote this to your family, friends and customers to ensure your success! We will also send you craft show communications via email!

PLEASE NOTE:
•     Registration forms and/or payments must be received by October 1, 2011. Checks presented with insufficient funds will be charged a fee as set forth by our bank.
•     The responsibility for booth set-up, including loading/unloading, is yours. However, there is a possibility we may have Boy Scouts and youth available to assist.
•     If needed, we have a limited number of tables (includes 2 chairs) available to rent for $10. There is a maximum of one table per booth.
•     No tape or adhesive of any kind is allowed on the floors or walls. Extension cords are not provided.
•     The areas in and around the church grounds are non-smoking areas, signs will be posted.
•     In the event of inclement weather, we will attempt to reschedule. However if the event should be canceled for any reason, please consider your fees a donation to our charity and we will provide a tax deductible receipt for you.

Our Bazaar Committee is already praying and working hard to plan and prepare for this event on your behalf, as well as for the proceeds that will benefit our women’s and children’s mission projects. We look forward to having you participate as a vendor with us this year. We appreciate your feedback from last year and have implemented some constructive changes.
