Market Guidelines - Please read, links at bottom.
Two Crows Market (herein TCM) is a juried, handmade goods event. Two Crows is Renmeleon and RockPaperFox (herein Two Crows). Visual & Craft Artists (herein Artists).
Communication is paramount to the event running smoothly. Artists are required to follow-up when contacted so that they do not miss any opportunities provided for them.
We will not accept artists who sell mass-manufactured merchandise imported from outside Kentucky. It is accepted that using findings or supplies from outside Kentucky is often unavoidable. i.e. T-shirts must be designer-crafted or hand-printed. Absolutely no mass-manufactured/printed t-shirts from outside the United States will be accepted. 
Products that are wholly made outside the United States are not accepted.
If you are selling "scented" goods such as incense or perfumes, please make sure your products are sealed properly. Scented goods can be reactive for people with allergies. We would like both our other Artists and visitors to enjoy the event.
For compliance to these rules, please include photos or your website and/or social media as a representation of your work. 
Any Artists whose merchandise is inconsistent with what was described in their application and depicted in the photographs or website/social will be removed from the show. No refund will be given. There will be no exceptions unless written permission has been given by Two Crows.

Displays & Electrical
Displays must look neat and professional. All items must be placed on a table, easel, grid, or display stand. For safety, grids and displays may not exceed 6 feet in height and well anchored. There are no exceptions. Artists must provide their own display panels, grids, easels, etc. Works cannot be propped up against railings, walls or planters. You must provide protection for the floor if you are demonstrating in your booth indoors.

There are limited electrical outlets and wattage. Not all spaces have access to electricity. If your display requires electricity, please make sure to indicate it on your application. Wall spaces that have access to electricity are first come-first serve. You may use no more than two 200-watts of electricity at your booth. Because of fire hazard, absolutely no halogen lighting may be used. Violating Artists and their staff will be removed without refund. Artists must have their own heavy-duty grounded electrical cords with floor cover.

Set-up & Staffing
Artists may be given specific locations for parking, loading and unloading. Dollies will not be provided.
Artists can set up between 7am and 9am next morning. Absolutely no setups will be allowed past 9:30am on the day of the show. 
All booths must be staffed at all times during business hours. You must provide your own assistants. Volunteers may be available for short-term (5-15 minutes) relief only. TCM and the venue take no responsibility for loss, damage or theft.
