We wish we could fit everyone in, unfortunately space is always limited. Vendors are selected in effort to provide a variety of categories for our shoppers, and we do our best to curate a show that will connect to the market location, venue, and overall vibe.

Is my booth fee refundable if I'm unable to make it the day of the event?
All booth fees are nonrefundable. Weather you can make it or not, we still have to pay for all the expenses of the event. Additionally, making changes or adjustments to fill your spot actually adds administrative work.
Does APPP provide the tables? What about the chairs? Tents?
APPP does not provide tables or chairs. When you specify your table size, we simply reserve your spot. You will have space for seating behind your table or to work up a display. Bring your own comfy chairs. If you choose to bring tents or umbrellas for outside set-ups they must be grounded with weights to stand against the wind. Here are some ideas to weight down your tent if you can't use stakes. (If you have no table options, please let us know. We might be able to provide first come with extra resources we may have in collaboration with our venue.)
What is the space of the venue like?
Check out Space24Twenty's blog for various photos. This is an outdoor venue that has great vibes designed to host events just like this one. You will get a map of the floor plan once we receive all of our applicants. Some booths will not have a back wall. But you can arrange your booth space with tables, build vertical displays, bring racks, or anything else that works within your space. We encourage you to get as creative as you like. If you have ideas in mind for a unique set-up please don't hesitate to inquire. One of the things we LOVE about our craft fairs is how we get to work closely with our vendors to customize each event to meet everyone's needs in the best possible way.

Do I need a sales tax number?
To sell anything anywhere in the state of Texas you must obtain a seller’s permit from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts Office and collect sales tax for all sales. It can easily be obtained by visiting their office at 209 S Danville Dr, Abilene, TX 79605. If you have any questions give them a call at (325) 695-4323. They are very helpful! APPP is not responsible for collecting or making sure you collect and report sales tax revenues.
What is the best way to do transactions the day of the event?
We have found the Square device works great for processing card payments. Change and cash is always a part of transactions for markets and fairs. The venue is not available to break change for you.
How much inventory should I come with?
It depends on you and your product. Some vendors have a business that sells products year round so they bring a little bit of everything. Some vendors do custom orders so they will have their table stocked with their signature items, and have a sign-up sheet for custom orders. We've consistently had over 2K people come and go throughout a six hour duration.
Will I have access to an outlet?
It depends on the venue and your booth location. Please let us know if you have interest in an outlet and we will do our best to accommodate you.
