Our show is held at the Middleburg Heights Jr High. 7000 Paula Dr. Middleburg Heights OH. 44130. We use the Cafeteria, Gym and hallways for vendors.
What makes your show unique?
We have something for everyone! We offer to our vendors:
-Assistance with loading/unloading (offered by our Performing Arts students). -We offer change to vendors throughout the weekend. -Your lunch order and all your requests will be taken from you right at your table. No need to leave your table unattended. -Our famous Craft Show Cafe offers hot meals from breakfast to lunch, at reasonable prices. Beginning in September, we advertise heavily in SW Cuyahoga County, and on Social Media.
What is your attendance?
Over the last few years, our attendance has been approximately 2000 customers for the weekend. Admission is 1.00 per person.
What are your fees? What is your table/Space Setup?
Our $50.00 fee is now for SPACE ONLY. If you would like to rent a table for your space(s), the rental fee will be $5.00 per table. You may contract as many spaces as you would like, with or without as many tables as you would like. These options are all detailed on the contract. Tables are 8 foot wooden rental tables. All tables are to be covered with a clean tablecloth and must be skirted to the floor on three sides. The tablecloth and skirt are to be provided by the CRAFTER. We evenly space our vendor locations throughout the building (Each space-8 ft. wide X approx. 5 ft. deep with 2 ft. between each crafter). Hallway/Cafeteria/Gym spaces are all set in a similar fashion, with similar spacing. Spaces are the same size with or without table rental. Under no circumstances are we able to approve any one day spaces.
Do you have sites with electric?
Electrical is limited and is assigned on a first come first serve basis. If requesting electric, Please bring extra lighting in case overhead lighting is not sufficient. We are in a public school building and are in no way able to adjust the lighting. For all electric space requests: Please bring extension cords, as your access to electric may not be directly behind you.
Can I request a specific type of spot?
We make every attempt to fulfil all requests. Priority for any particular location always goes to vendor from previous year. You may request such things as.. corner, in/not in a hallway, in/not in the gym, etc.
Do you allow more than one vendor of the same item?
Because we are a large show (285 spaces), we do end up with multiple tables selling popular items, such as jewelry, soaps, fragrances and decorative items. We make every effort to evenly space these tables throughout the show, and will limit tables of some items. While we do encourage handmade items, we also permit unique commercially made items, collectibles and similar items. Direct Marketing types of vendors, including but not limited to Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple, Avon, etc., will be initially offered to a previous year’s representative, then offered first come first served to new representatives. Only one vendor per brand will be permitted. Also, please note-we are NOT a juried show.
Is there access to wifi?
Unfortunately at this time do NOT have access to the school district Wi-Fi.
