Welcome to the Tanners Marketplace Newsletter.
We are in negotiations with the Legends at Sparks Marina Outlet Mall to do at least one and maybe several Antiques and Collectibles only shows at the mall.
The first one will be in May. We are deciding on the exact weekend now so please let me know right away if you would like to participate and if there are any other shows that I need to be aware of so we don't have a schedule conflict. We are trying to keep the booth costs the same as at the Events Center. It is a beautiful inside location with 28000 square feet of space in the Reno/Sparks area's newest mall. More details coming soon.
There are still a few spaces available for the April show.
It's easy to sign up and easy to sell your things at the show. To sign up just click the Vendor Signup Form link to the right and follow the prompts. A $30 deposit is required to hold your space which is refundable up to 48 hours before the show or applied to a future show. You can pay it via a check mailed to us, Paypal or by calling with a credit card number. You can see the available spaces by clicking here:
Floor Plan with spaces detail
Setup starts at 12:00 noon on Friday. When you arrive you just check in at the front table and we'll show you where your space is if you don't know. If you ordered tables and chairs they will already be in your space. You just arrange the tables like you want and display your items. Don't forget to bring table coverings to spruce up your booth.
Many vendors like to shop at the other vendors booths on Friday and in the morning before the public arrives. Then you get first pick and it can be hard to get out and shop when we are busy. We open the doors to the public at 9:00 but the vendors can get in at 8:00.
You are responsible for collecting sales tax and will get a form to fill out with your name, address and the total of your taxable sales. To make it easier, most of our vendors price things with the sales tax included and just put down their total sales on the form. You do need to remit the sales tax amount when you turn in the form at the end of the show.
Burning Man is coming! The annual pilgrimage to the Black Rock Desert is a great opportunity for all of our vendors. Besides the obvious clothing vendors many Playa Goers will be looking for accessories to complete their look. Also think about how something can be re-purposed - i.e. a cup and saucer can become a flower if they are mounted on a stick. Think of that when you plan what to bring to the show.
The TV show "The Old House Antique Showcase" will be back filming at the April show. They will be sponsoring Free appraisals /evaluations again on Saturday from 9:00 to 1:00.
The show airs Sunday mornings at 7:00 on either channel 6 or 46 depending on your carrier. If you have any comments or questions for the TV staff please contact Terri.
