BOOTH INFORMATION

Artists are responsible for all booth décor. The museum will provide each booth with a basic 8.5” x 11” printed sign with their business name. Any additional signage is the responsibility of the vendor. Hanging signs on museum walls is prohibited. The museum will provide:

  • (1) 6′ x 2.5′ table for Half Booths 
  • (2) 6′ x 2.5′ tables for Full Booths (NOTE: use of tables is optional)
  • (2) white chairs for all booths

Full booths are 8′ x 8′ with two tables. Half booths consist of one 6’ x 2.5’ table. We will have a communal dressing room area on the MakeArt meeting room (filled with five standing mirrors) at the entrance of the event. Textile artists are encouraged to bring a free-standing mirror. Jewelers are encouraged to bring a table mirror. 

Vendors are responsible for bringing their own garment racks, mirrors, tablecloths, additional lighting, wrapping supplies, boxes, bags, and decor. The Museum will only provide the above mentioned bare banquet table and chairs. Electrical outlets are limited in the gallery, if you require an outlet please bring your own extension cord.

CHECKOUT PROCEDURES (abbreviated)

*We will provide you with a hard copy of the Checkout Procedures (in-depth) at your booth during setup on Friday for reference throughout the event. Also available for download below.

Triplicate receipt books will be provided. Print the customer’s name at the top of the receipt. Please record an email address for each client. When writing up a sale, include a brief description of the item sold, price, and your individual checkout code (the museum will provide you with a four-digit code). PLEASE TOTAL YOUR SALES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RECEIPT. The cashiers will compute and collect the sales tax themselves. If a piece is special-ordered, it must be paid in full. No private transactions/sales can be made.

There will be central cashiers for all purchases. Style accepts cash and all major debit cards and credit cards (no checks). We will have up to three “roaming” cashiers who can provide expedited credit card checkout on iPads for customers, as well as two permanent checkout stations at the back of the gallery. Artists are responsible for wrapping all purchases and should provide tissue and bags or boxes. 

 

POST EVENT PROCEDURES

Within a week after the show, we will send you an accounting of your sales. Please check it carefully and let us know right away if there are any discrepancies with your own records. If we don’t hear back within a week after sending the report, we will assume you agree with the amount of sales. You will be paid approximately (3) three weeks after the close of the event and will receive a full accounting of your transactions.

Parking in the Dogpatch neighborhood mainly consists of free 4-hour and metered parking (Mon–Fri, 9 AM–6 PM). Please do NOT leave any items visible in your car–it will be broken into. We encourage you to rideshare or take Muni on Saturday to avoid parking hassles.
