Cancellation & Refund Policy UPDATED
Cancellation Fee: $25
This fee covers banking / PayPal fees; administrative costs and online marketing.
More than 7 days before the fair: We'll refund your payment less the $25 cancellation fee, providing we can fill your booth. Less than 7 days before the fair: No refund will be issued.
Due to limited space, we turn away a lot of applicants. Of those who ask to be put on the waiting list, very few are still available the week of the fair. We've had empty booths due to late cancellations. That's not fair to the visitors, nor to us. We've kept our prices low in order to better serve you, but that means we need the revenue from all booths to cover our expenses and time.
Circumstances Beyond Our Control (i.e. Stormy Weather): We are not responsible / liable for acts of God / Mother Nature.
At the Fair Set-Up Times, What to Bring, What to Avoid, Security, Dismantling
Friday: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm (to be confirmed) Saturday: 8:00 am - 9:45 am Sunday: 8:00 am - 9:45 am
What to Bring
Table Cloth(es): You need to supply a table cover (8' x 4' per table). Power Cords: If you paid for power, please bring extension cord(s). Non-Damaging Adhesive (or alternative):
Center Aisle Booths: You can hang a banner providing you bring your own loop hooks.
Outside Wall Booths: Coverdale Center doesn't want us hanging things on the walls, but we found that you can put things up with a good quality tape, one that will not pull off paint. Alternatively, we used four small bungee cords to put up our banner.
Gifts for Volunteers: Please join us in giving gifts to our wonderful volunteers.
Why give gifts to the volunteers? Gifting is a lovely way to show gratitude. Besides, the volunteers’ generosity helps keep the fair costs down, a savings which we pass on to you.
Are the gift mandatory? No. Please give as you see fit.
What kinds of gifts are suitable? Anything! Gifts do not need to be elaborate or expensive. We are giving each of the volunteers a gift certificate for free healing. Other ideas include sample products, free services offered at the fair.
Amount: We have 8 volunteers but only have 5 or 6 gift bags. That's because several of our volunteers are married, so they share a gift bag.
When / where to drop them off? Please give to them to Steve first thing in the morning. That way, he can package them and present the gifts to the volunteers. Thank you!
What to Avoid
NEWNo-Scent Policy: We ask you to refrain from the following:
Smudging / burning sage
wearing any kind of scent (natural or manmade) including: essential oils, perfume, perfumed products, cologne, smoke, etc.
Space Encroachment: We take care not to crowd booths together. We ask that you do the same.
There should be adequate space on either side of your booth for people to walk through. DO NOT CROWD DOORWAYS OR AISLES - AS PER THE OFFICE OF THE FIRE MARSHAL.
Disruptive Sound: Please be respectful of your fellow exhibitors by keeping your noise level down. Even healing accoutrements can be overwhelming in a small, shared space. This includes:
drums, gongs, singing bowls and recorded music
Cheap Tape: No cheap tape allowed on floors or walls. Open Flames: i.e. Lit candles
Although there has never been a problem in all our past fairs, and the building is locked at night, please note that we are unable to guarantee the safety of your personal items.
NEITHER WE, STEVE CLAYTON AND KIM HUTCHINSON, NOR THE COVERDALE CENTRE/TOWN OF RIVERVIEW ARE LIABLE FOR DAMAGE OR LOSS OF YOUR BELONGINGS.
