Welcome! We are pleased that you are interested in the 48th Annual See ‘N’ Sell Arts & Craft Show. Our goal is to provide each exhibitor with a show that is abundant in shoppers and sales. We strive to instill the holiday spirit in exhibitors and shoppers alike. We hope exhibitors will enjoy a show that is well-organized, and that shoppers will be inspired by the fun, music and wonderful merchandise.
Arts and Crafts Booths> All products must be handmade, handcrafted goods. No buy/sell will be allowed in the Arts and Crafts Booths. If your merchandise is prefabricated, we will be happy to assign you to our commercial area.
Commercial Booths> Prefabricated items and nationally recognized products such as Bijou Bags, Pampered Chef, Watkins, Sentsy and more are categorized as “commercial.”
*It will be at the discretion of the event coordinators as to whether a booth will qualify for the event.

No straw bales, hay bales, or live trees may be used in any display. Also, the Americans with Disabilities Act will be followed, which states that ALL display merchandise must be within the designated taped booth space. In addition, because of the Brady Bill, no craft items that resemble weapons will be allowed. Smoking is prohibited in The Bicentennial Center at all times. For everyone’s safety, these laws will be enforced.
PRIOR TO THE SHOW
Advertising: Our marketing committee promotes the show throughout the region via radio, television, newspaper, flyers, websites, and crafters’ publications.
Check-In and Set-Up: All Exhibitors must check in at the Registration Table prior to unloading. Check-in and set-up will begin the day before the event. See your final registration confirmations for full details. All booths not accounted for by 7 a.m. on the day of the event will forfeit their space and fee. All booths must be set up and ready by 7:30 a.m.
Tables reserved in advance will be placed in exhibitor’s booth prior to set-up time. Chairs are available at no charge. Electricity will be provided only to those who have requested it on the Registration Form. Exhibitors will need to provide their own extension cords.
DURING THE SHOW
Nametags. Exhibitors will be provided with three nametags as part of their Registration Fee. Nametags will allow exit and entry into the event throughout the day. Additional nametags may be purchased for $4 each.
Lunch: For the convenience of exhibitors, a box lunch will be available for purchase. Lunches will be delivered to each exhibitors’ booth but must be pre-ordered on your registration form.
Parking: There is adequate parking around The Bicentennial Center. After unloading, vehicles and trailers should be parked in the back of the east parking lot.
Sales Tax: All exhibitors are required to collect and pay sales tax on all merchandise sold. A Temporary Sales Tax Packet with a tax chart and tax form with instructions will be provided to all exhibitors. Exhibitors are required to meet all state registry and licensing requirements.
Leaving Your Booth: Volunteers will be available to provide exhibitors with short breaks, if needed (bathroom, etc.).
Security & Insurance: Neither Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland nor The Bicentennial Center is financially liable for any losses, damages, or “mysterious disappearances” of any kind. We recommend all exhibitors contact their insurance agents to confirm proper coverage of exhibit materials. Exhibitors should not leave cash or merchandise unattended during the event.
AFTER THE SHOW
Take-Down: All doors to The Bicentennial Center will be accessible for take-down on Saturday afternoon after 4 p.m. After booths have been dismantled and merchandise is ready to be moved, vehicles will be allowed to drive up to the doors for loading. Exhibitors should be patient and courteous as there are many booths needing to be moved out in a short period of time. All booths must be cleared out by 7 p.m. on Saturday of the event. The building will be closed and locked after this time. All debris should be cleared from the booth space prior to leaving.
The above guidelines are intended to assist all of us. Therefore, the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, Inc. reserves the right to refuse any booth or items that do not meet our guidelines or exceed space limitations. Violators will be asked to leave the show.
Confirmation of registration will be sent to registered vendors via USPS mail and are processed monthly until October, when processing is done bi-monthly.
