You may sell approved handcrafted arts and crafts, repurposed and up cycled items as well as food products that are not consumable on site. We are not allowed to sell any food items that compete with the Bell County Expo snack bar. 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.
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.
All vendors must have a Texas sales tax permit number in order to participate in the show. Food vendors are exempt.

Yes. Please provide at least two pictures each of your merchandise and your display. You may provide your social media accounts if you would like us to view your photos there or you may email your photos to email@example.com.
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/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. However, 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 local TV, streaming TV, in the local newspapers, direct mail, email blasts, digital billboards and on social media outlets. 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.
