THE BIG No Nos
(a list of things that is unacceptable and will have you removed from future shows and all monies lost)
1. Leaving Early
Tearing down early seems to be a trend at many other locations but not Schererville. This is extremely disrespectful to all parties involved and flat out rude. I understand things happen and you may need to leave but communication is required WITH Recreation Director (Josh) to accommodate that.
2. Arriving Late
Each event starts at a specific time, your booth space should be ready for business by 4:30pm on each event date. Ready for Business means that someone should be at the booth/truck and it should be opened for business.
3. Parking Incorrectly
This is HUGE! Parking is a premium with our events and some think they are exempt from this. If you have a request in regards to parking then you must speak with me (DON’T ASSUME). Every parking spot taken up by a crafter/vendor in customer parking is one less customer for you to see.
Every person and THING deserves this. BE KIND, please.
The No Nos above are the specific policies that seem to always have to be reiterated every year. These things WE WILL NOT TOLERATE. We must have structure or you won’t succeed. Keep in mind we are very accommodating but you MUST communicate.
The Vendor shall hold harmless and indemnify the Town of Schererville and the Schererville Parks and Recreation Board, and all authorized agents and employees from any and all liability and or claims due to use or consumption of the Vendor’s products or due to damage and or theft of Vendor’s vehicles, equipment, merchandise, goods, and ware kept upon premises in conjunction with the event.
The Vendor understands that exclusivity on products for sale and location of set up is not guaranteed.
I agree that I have read and accepted the terms of this application.
