Aiden by Best Western @ South Reno
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!
Is there electricity available in the booth?
Yes there is electricity available. There is a $55 charge per booth using electricity. If you use extension cords they will need to be 3 prong ext. cords. You will need to fill out a form and turn it in to Paula by Friday evening.
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 10:00. Saturday we open the doors for vendors at 7:00 for those that want to set up Sat. morning. Sunday we open an hour early at 8:00. The show hours for customers are Sat. 9 to 5 and Sun. 10 to 3.
Approximately how many people attend this show?
We usually have between 800 and 1000 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
How can I help advertise the show?
If you would like to help advertise the show we have created a flier with tear off tabs that you can print out and post on local bulletin boards. Most grocery stores etc. have places to post local events and every little bit helps get the word out. There is also a flier that can be printed and placed on the counter.
The more people that come the better everyone's sales will be!
Post on CraigsList and Facebook, too!
We have some advertising signs that are 18" x 24" that can be placed near a busy road the week before the show. Let me know if you have a place where one can be put that will show well and not be illegal and I can see about getting it to you. They will have to be picked back up right after the show so they don't disappear.
what can be sold at the show?
This is primarily an antique show, our customers come looking for antiques. We do have some craft vendors and retro vendors that modify antique items. In the spirit of helping small business - a booth promoting your business may be allowed, talk to me.
Modern buy/sell items are not welcome without prior approval.
How many tables fit in a space?
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).

Sales Tax Number
THIS PART IS ON HOLD FOR NOW - STAY TUNED
It is still a good idea to get a Sales Tax permit. It allows you to purchase inventory tax free.
If you do more than 2 shows a year the State requires you to have a sales tax number. open the application (link below) and you may be able to fill many of the fields on your computer before you print it. The instructions are there too. I pre-filled a few spots on the form.
If you don't have a Federal Tax Id number, enter your SS number in space 6. Leave space 7 blank. Put a description of what you sell in space 15, IE Antiques, Leave NIACS code blank. Leave space 20 blank. You can leave line 30 blank.
Fill it out as best you can and take it to the tax office. Try to go in the morning to make it easier on you. You may mail it to the address below. There is a $15 fee for the registration.
