Before filling out the application, please carefully read the Terms & Conditions. By filling out this application and submitting payment you are agreeing to the following:
All items presented and sold at the TR Town & Art Crawl must be handcrafted by the artist applying or classified as vintage (20+ years old). We will not allow craft kit creations, imports or re-sale items that are not vintage. This is a juried event and the application deadline for all events is April 28th at midnight. Any late applications will only be accepted if space is available and booth space will be marked up to $30 per event. Any late applications are due by the 15th of the month prior to the event you are applying for and notifications of acceptance will be given by 20th. If you are not accepted a refund of your payment minus the $5 jury fee will be initiated on the 20th. We will not consider your application if it is not complete with payment.
This event will be held from 5p to 9p. Please do not breakdown any earlier than 8:30p. Doing so will hurt your chances of participating in future events. If you must leave early due to special circumstances, please make prior arrangements with the TR Town & Art Crawl organizers before breaking down your booth. We appreciate your cooperation.
***Booth Set-Ups and Fee: Vendor booths are allocated at 10’x10’ outdoor space along the main art crawl route. Vendors are responsible for their entire display: tents, tables, chairs, table cloths, racks, etc. This includes hauling and setting up your display. We have an extremely small staff, and it is your responsibility to haul your belongings as well as setting up and breaking down your display. The vendor fee is $20 per event or $96 if applying for all 6 events before the deadline of April 28th. After April 28th vendor fees are $30 per event. This fee is due before you application is considered complete. Booths may be shared, but each vendor must apply separately and submit their full vendor fee.
***Host Set-Ups and Fee: There is a limited number of hosted spaces available and will these will be filled based on jury acceptance and the order with which applications are completed. Vendors host space is allocated at 4'x6' with in a business or under cover outside. Vendors are still responsible for their display: table, chair, table cloth, easels/stands, etc. The vendor fee is $20 per event or $96 if applying for all 6 events before the deadline of April 28th. After April 28th vendor fees are $30 per event. This fee is due before you application is considered complete. Host space may not be shared.
***Locally Sold Artists and Fee: Artists already being sold in a participating business may apply to be included in our promotional material online. Businesses selling local artists work may also submit these artists for promotion. Promotional fee is $30 per event and is due with your application. (Note: This fee may be waived if your business has purchased an event sponsorship with the TR Town & Art Crawl.)
Taxes: All artists are required by the city of Travelers Rest to get a peddlers license for the events they attend. You do not need to get this license until you hear acceptance on your application. If you are planning on attending 3 or more events during the series it would be more budget friendly to get a Travelers Rest Business License for the year, which would allow you to attend any event during the 2017 series.
South Carolina law requires that all vendors pay sales tax on their revenue from events. It is each individual’s responsibility to make sure that they claim their income and collect sales tax. This means having a tax ID number and submitting the appropriate forms. You can find more information on the SC DOR website: https://dor.sc.gov/tax/arts-and-crafts
