A vendor application for the 2017 Fall Shopping Frenzy is enclosed for your consideration. Please be advised that returning an application does not guarantee a spot in our 2017 event. Please do not send payment with the application since your amount due is dependent upon availability of your requested booth location. Once you have returned the application, if you are selected as a 2016 vendor, you will then receive a contract by mail/email. Your spot will be locked in once JATC has received a signed contract and payment from you. This is not the contract. This is only the application. Once your spot is locked, you will receive a confirmation letter or email.
Returning vendor’s applications will be given first priority for booth space, however, please keep in mind that JATC will be choosing vendors for the event based on a specific selection process that will allow JATC to provide the best variety of merchandise available to the shoppers while ensuring the maximum sales potential for our vendors. This vendor selection process allows JATC to make sure that there are not multiple vendors selling identical merchandise. If you are a returning vendor from last year, you will be considered for first placement priority if your application is received or postmarked by September 1st, 2017.
After September 1st, 2017, we will no longer be able to hold spots and will begin filling spots to new vendors on a first come, first serve basis. If a returning vendor turns in a completed application after September 1st, 2017, he/she will be placed as spacing allows. No applications will be accepted after September 22, 2017 due to printing deadlines and finalizing booth layout. Once the layout is in place, no changes will be made.
All information regarding booth size and prices can be found on the attached application. Please note that vendors will be asked to make a donation of item/items from your merchandise to the Fall Shopping Frenzy’s silent auction. The value of your silent auction item needed is listed on the charts on the application.
We will be offering a potato bar for our vendors again this year. The potato bar will be available for lunch on Saturday and the cost is $8 per person. This will include a baked potato with a variety of toppings, a drink and a dessert. The potato bar is being catered by the famous Well’s Kitchen in Brighton, TN. If you choose to purchase one or more potato bar meals, you will need to choose this option on your application and send in your potato bar money with your booth fee and signed contract.
We can also offer table rentals for $10 per table if needed. The tables are 12 foot long and may ONLY be rented if you are requesting a 10’X20’ booth or larger. The table rentals are not available for hallway booths. The tables will be placed in your booth after 3 pm on FRIDAY and they are to remain in your booth space when you check out.
Please be sure to provide us with a very detailed description of all merchandise you will be selling on the application. You are welcome to include photographs or brochures with your application, but please note they will not be returned. If you have any items that will be sold in your booth that are associated with a Direct Sales Company, the company name and items MUST be listed on your application. If you do not specify these items on your application, FF staff may ask you to remove them from your booth.
