Thank you for your interest in being a vendor at the South Tulsa Baptist Church 13th Annual Arts & Crafts Expo benefiting the South Tulsa Student Ministries for their Spring Break 2021 Mission Trip to Belize. The students take an annual Spring Break trip to Belize to minister to the people in that area. The teens bring the gospel to the children at various schools across Belize through Vacation Bible School and a drama. Funds raised from this event will help teens that may not otherwise be able to attend.
The Expo will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. These hours are advertised to the public. Our goal is to increase our visitor’s numbers this year by adding additional vendors, vendor highlights on our Facebook page, and bringing back our Basket Auction. Advertising for this event will include The Tulsa World, Tulsa People Magazine and website, all Community Calendars, as well as several other local advertising and online websites. A complete list will be provided in vendor packet upon check-in.
Please come with enough inventory to sell throughout the entire day. If a vendor closes a booth early, that vendor may not be asked to participate in our next event.

Merchandise or packing boxes may be under tables but must not create an unsightly view or be exposed in any way. Partition walls are allowed, but please inform us if you plan to use them so that we can place your booth in an area that will best accommodate all of our vendors. If you fail to notify us of the use of partitions, you may not be able to use them in the show.

Electricity will be available for certain booths at a charge of $10. Please be sure to mark your application if you would like electricity as it is limited. Vendors that have paid for electricity will need to provide their own power strips and heavy-duty extension cords.
A vendor MAY NOT share or sell any of their space without the approval of the committee including the display or any items (business cards, publications, etc.) from any other businesses not participating in the Arts & Crafts Expo. Vendors will not be allowed to occupy any space except the one they have purchased. This includes any unoccupied or unfilled spaces. We realize space is limited but each vendor MUST stay within their own 10x10 marked off space; this includes the booth area and any needed walking area. A vendor must NOT touch or move another vendor’s booth/products without their permission. If problems arise the vendor may be asked to leave the Expo and/or not be allowed to participate in next year’s event.
South Tulsa Arts & Crafts Expo will be responsible for submitting the sales tax to the State of Oklahoma for each vendor that does not have a Tax ID number (FEIN). We will provide the form you need to fill out in your packet at the show. This must be turned in to the staff immediately following the show. Someone will be available to help you fill out the form, if needed. If you file your own taxes, please just make sure we have your FEIN on file.
The selling or displaying of products with any drug or alcohol related themes of any kind are not acceptable. Our Committee reserves the right to accept all or part of your products. The Committee reserves the right to enforce and/or interpret the guidelines and procedures. Once accepted, by signing the contract, each vendor agrees to follow the rules and regulations stated here and in the contract.
Food vendor(s) will be a part of the show and some concessions will be offered the day of the show, so we ask that you not sell food items at your booth, unless previously approved by the Committee.
Please complete and return your application as soon as possible. To insure a successful event we request 2-3 photos of your work along with your application if you are a new vendor. Your application will not be processed without your photos (only new vendors). If photos need to be returned, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your application. Be sure to include a brief description of your products so we can separate like vendors. Please do not send your booth rental payment until you have been notified of your acceptance into our show. To provide a wide variety of products, the Committee will only allow one vendor representing national franchise companies (i.e. Scentsy, Mary Kay, Thirty One, etc.).
The person and/or company being represented by the person signing this application agrees that they will indemnify and hold harmless South Tulsa Baptist Church and all persons connected of any kind, or from any third party actions arising from the action of South Tulsa connected with the operation of the Arts & Crafts Expo.
We look forward to a wonderful event!
