What To Bring & How To Play

Sign up for your booth using our form. You'll see our agreements with each other and then choose which events you want to attend, which size booth you want (dimensions, pricing), for Portland and Eugene also where you want your booth to be, how you want us to describe what you'll offer, if you want to give a talk, special requests for lights/scents/electricity, etc., and all of your contact information. The next steps are: 

As you get ready for an event:

Now that our Fairs are 11am-7pm, arrive in time to be set up just before 11am: between 9:30-10am. Product vendors who need more time are welcome to make special arrangements. See the addresses on the Home page.

Bring your furniture unless you purchased use of ours – chairs are included in some venues. Check the price list.

Also bring

  • an ~8×11 sign for our front table describing who you are and what work you share (flyers and cards are fine too – simply share the space with everyone)

  • a sign-up sheet for your station (optional)

  • cards, flyers and other marketing materials

  • ways to take money and make change

  • everything else you need to share your work

After you unload, move your car to the street, or if it is large, the far end of the parking lot - we want the up close spots, many of them, to be for your future clients!

Every venue has different rules. Common procedures include:

  • No open flame

  • No animals

  • No food except in tile area (in Portland)

  • Put nothing on the walls

Prepare to optionally participate in the Intuitive Panel which begins at 11am. All willing practitioners and vendors introduce themselves, we share logistics, and then we answer questions.

  • Everything you share ought to be a gift and of service, not explicitly marketing (don't say, "come to my table...")

  • We'll ask for questions, choose someone, and then 3-4 of us will share our answers

  • Share very briefly, ideally only ~45 seconds, so others may also have a chance to respond

  • After you've shared once or twice, take a pause and let others share

  • Feel free to leave for a while and come back, or simply go back to your station

  • We continue for about 1 hour, until about 12:15pm

  • Afterwards we'll rearrange the space for stations, talks or whatever is to be in that space

Plan to stay the entire Fair. We have been and aim to be busy the entire time! 

Please do clean up promptly at 7pm or as soon as you finish your last session/sale.

We hope you have a GREAT DAY at the Fair!!!
