Magic of Santa
Is there electricity available in the booth?
Yes there is electricity available. There are some outlets along the walls. They will connect power to inside booths. There is a $45 charge per booth using electricity. Please let us know in advance if you need power. (It can still be connected if you decide you want it when you get set up.) You will need 3 prong ext. cords.
Can we bring our own tables and chairs?
You are welcome to bring your own tables and chairs. Pop-Up's can be used but we suggest not putting the tops on since that makes it darker. The Events Center provides 8'x30" tables and chairs for free.
Is there any separation between booths (I.E. Drapery)?
There aren't any separators or walls between booths, we prefer a more open look for the show. We mark the spaces out on the floor.
Is special parking available for vendors?
The show has free parking. If the attendant asks for a parking fee tell them you are coming to Tanners. You are welcome to leave vehicles/trailers overnight we will have to check on where to park them. You can load in and out through the closest door to your booth.
How early can we come each day to set up?
Friday setup usually starts at about 10 since we need time to decorate the building. Saturday we open the doors for vendors at 7am for those that want to set up Saturday morning. Sunday we open an hour early at 8am. The show hours for customers are Saturday 9 to 5 and Sunday 10 to 4.
Approximately how many people attend this show?
We usually have between 900 and 1500 customers attend.
Do our helpers/family get in free?
Yes they do. They just need to tell the person at the door that they are there to help you
What items can be sold at the show?
This is a Handcrafts show. With only a few approved exceptions everything must be hand made or substantially modified by the crafter. There will be a couple of vendors selling Vintage/Antique Christmas items.

How many tables fit in a booth
3 tables fit in a 10x10 inside booth. Only 2 fit in a 10x10 wall space (you can bring your own 6' table to fill in).
1 table fits in a 5x10 or 6x10 space (again you can bring your own smaller table to put on one end).
If you would like to help promote the show we have created fliers that you can print out and post on local bulletin boards and share.
Many grocery stores have places to post local events and every little bit helps get the word out. The more people that come the better everyone's sales will be!
The postcards print 4 to a page. You can run the paper back through upside down and print the back of the card if you want to mail them
These also make great fliers to hand out!
Thank you for sharing on Craigslist and social media too!
