Vendor Categories

Artists and Crafters that sell predominantly one medium should choose ONE category that best represents the dominant category of their goods. Crafters that personally handcraft a variety of goods should select “Various” and explain in the notes exactly what that entails. Preference will be given to applicants that present a theme in a creative display. For placement purposes, photos must represent all the type goods sold. Vendors that include resell items in this category will be reclassified as “Commercial.” Commercial vendors, food vendors, and non-profits should check the appropriate box for their business.
