Rules & Regulations

Thank you for your interest in being a vendor at the South Tulsa Baptist Church Arts & Crafts Expo benefiting the South Tulsa Baptist Youth for their yearly Spring Break Mission Trip to Belize. The youth of South Tulsa 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 the school at Monkey River through Vacation Bible School and taking the Gospel into the public schools through the Freedom 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 11, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. These hours are advertised to the public. Advertising for this event will include KXOJ, 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 your 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. Set-up will be Friday, November 10 from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. or Saturday, November 11 from 7:00 - 8:50 a.m. It is imperative that your booth be set up and ready for guests by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.

Vendors MUST provide table covering to reach the floor for each table.  Merchandise or packing boxes may be under the table 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.

Each vendor must also contribute 10% of their TOTAL GROSS SALES from the show to South Tulsa (STBC) to be donated to the Youth Missions Scholarship Fund (YMSF).  This check will be tax-deductible and can be made out to STBC and note YMSF on the memo line. This will be collected from each vendor at the end of the show - NO EXCEPTIONS.

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 permissions. 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 any vendor that does not have their own Tax ID number. 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. If you have your own Tax ID number please make sure we have that 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.

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 may not be processed without your photos). If your photos need to be returned, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your application. You may also email your photos to us here. 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.).
