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 Exhibitors).
Communication is paramount to the event running smoothly. Exhibitors are required to follow-up when contacted so that they do not miss any opportunities provided for them.
We will not accept Exhibitors 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 Exhibitors and visitors to enjoy the event.
Weapons of any kind are not allowed, this includes real, prop, or toy guns, blades, or anything with designated use as a weapon.
For compliance to these rules, please include photos or your website and/or social media as a representation of your work. 
Any Exhibitors 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 be well anchored. There are no exceptions. Exhibitors 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.

Set-up & Staffing
Exhibitors may be given specific locations for parking, loading and unloading. Dollies will not be provided.
Exhibitors can set up between 7am and 9am day of show. Absolutely no setups will be allowed past 9:30am on the day of the show. This is to hold space for wellness and a relaxed transition from setup to fine tuning for our Exhibitors.
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. 
There will be a signup sheet available the morning of the event for any exhibitor who would like a volunteer to give them a 10-15 minute break. During that time, volunteers will not handle money.
Marketing & Promotion
Event press releases, announcements and promotions will be sent to news media, the social media accounts of Two Crows as well as Renmeleon as appropriate, and the community. 
Exhibitors are encouraged to create and email personal announcements to their patrons. Media kits, posters, and resources will be provided on the website.
Exhibitors are included in the digital Lookbook on acceptance and will need to provide an Artist Statement, one-paragraph bio, and 3-5 images with a range of products spanning their typical year. This is provided at no charge to the Exhibitor. TCM reserves the right to select images and remove Exhibitors at their discretion.
