In 2012, the Bazaar drew an audited 33,000 in paid attendance. This is not the number of people who went through the turnstiles, these are paid admissions. Our extensive advertising budget, spent by an agency that has worked on this show from the very first day, maintains this level with creativity and by making the best deals out there. And, as an elder statesman, the Christmas Bazaar also has in incredible mailing list, which we spend a lot of time and energy keeping clean and current.
While retaining a large number of exhibitors from year to year, America’s Largest Christmas Bazaar is always looking for exhibitors that offer interesting and unique products not typically offered at shopping malls and fairs. Our audience enjoys both commercial and juried handcrafted products, which co-exist very well and round out the shopping experience. Of the 900 booths at the show, 400 handcrafted booths are located in Artisan’s Alley, two centrally located areas in Halls D & E. Both of these areas have black pipe & drape rather than the red and green that we use in the rest of the show. Crafters are offered reduced booth fees provided they qualify. Qualifications are simple: everything in the booth must be handcrafted by you with a photo of your finished product and one of you creating it. Thanks to the digital age, this can be as simple as sending a photo via email.
For commercial products, we structure the show so as not to have too many of any one item. As an example, by six weeks before the show, we are typically filled up on such things as jewelry and skin care products. For identical commercial products, we allow one per hall, so please check to be sure that yours is not already present at the show.
Because last years exhibitors have until September 7th, 2013 to sign up, we won’t know for sure if your company/category is already covered until after that date. We also won’t know about location availability until after September 7th, but we advise that you send a note with your contract if you have any preferences and we’ll do our best. The cover letter explaining those things and more is available by clicking below.
One unique feature of our show is that we accept post-dated checks for booth rent payment. This is something we have done since the beginning and it works well. If that is your method of payment, you can date your check for October 1st, 2013. We also accept credit cards and checks with a current date.
