You may sell approved handcrafted arts and crafts. Selected imports and commercial items are permitted on a limited and juried basis. Photos of your work and your booth are required.

Items not allowed in our events are commercial cosmetics, household cleaning products, weight loss products, health products and products or services which are totally unrelated to arts and crafts. We do not allow windows, siding, building materials, remodeling services, etc.  Booths that give prizes in order to get prospective clients are not allowed.

At this time, we are only accepting handcrafted jewelry.

If you have questions about what you can and cannot sell at our shows, please submit photos for our consideration. Limits are placed on categories to insure the balance of the show and to insure the financial success of every exhibitor.

Yes. Please provide two pictures each of your merchandise and your display. You may email your photos to sales@samishow.com or send them by mail to P.O. Box 40999, Austin, TX 78704.
You are renting floor space only.  The space is marked on the floor with chalk.  Each exhibitor is to provide any display that they might need for the appropriate presentation of their work.  When you arrive at the show, you will have a bare space marked off with chalk to outline your booth. It is like a blank canvas waiting for you to turn it into a boutique-like setting in which you'll sell your merchandise.

Backdrops are required.  We have a limited amount of pipe and drape available at a cost of $20 per 10 foot section and $30 per 15 foot section.  Please contact us if you are interested in renting our pipe and drape.

Large plastic or vinyl signs and banners are not permitted.  If you have a sign for your booth, it must be approved.  Please send us a picture or show it to us at the show before displaying it.  Sale signs and discount signs are prohibited except at our December sale shows.  We will provide the signs to be used at the sale shows.  Signs that are permissable include those made from fabric, wood, canvas, etc.
Tables and chairs are available for rent at most of our facilities with the exception of the Dell Diamond in Round Rock.  You are welcome to bring your own tables and chairs.

The standard table size is 8 feet in length by 2 1/2 feet wide by 30 inches high.  Each exhibitor is responsible for table covers.  They must cover the tables on all sides and they must reach the floor. 

If you order tables and chairs they will be in your booth when you arrive, provided that you reserve them at least 48 hours prior to the show.  Otherwise, you may order them at our customer service desk at the show.
We advertise on the three major TV networks: ABC, CBS and NBC.  More importantly, we advertise during prime time when the majority of people are watching.  We also run newspaper ads, radio commercials, direct mail, email blasts, press releases and portable signs.  We are highly motivated to do everything in our power to see that we get a good crowd of qualified shoppers.  We are known for great advertising.

Once your application is reviewed and accepted, your credit card will be charged immediately.  Our system does not automatically charge your card; therefore, if you are not accepted, you will not be charged.  If you are paying for three or more shows at the same time, the $10 per show discount will be deducted before your card is charged.  This discount is not reflected on the online form total.  We are unable to apply the $10 discount to any Anniversary show.

Please do not assume that you have a booth reservation until you receive a confirmation from us.  Once you submit an online application, our system will automatically send you an acknowledgement of your order.  This is an acknowledgement only, not a confirmation.  If you are approved and accepted, you will receive a confirmation either by mail or email.
There are no refunds once the contract is signed and payment is made.  This includes applications submitted online.  Please be sure of your work schedule and family obligations before submitting a contract for any show.  If you are unable to attend the show for any reason, or if you do not claim your space 1 and 1/2 hours prior to the show opening, all fees will be forfeited.

If there is an emergency and you are forced to cancel a show, please notify us as soon as possible. 

Please be aware that you cannot give, sell, lend, share or otherwise sublet your space to anyone else if you decide not to do a show you have paid for.  You may share a booth only if both you and your associate read and sign our application upon initial submission.  Contracts may not be modified and additional associates may not be added after they have been executed.
