The main factor taken into consideration for acceptance is quality and uniqueness of craft.
The Chamber has the right to limit the amount of similar crafts/commercial exhibited at the event. We strive for balance and variety of product throughout our shows, making sure those vendors selling the same are spread throughout and not next to one another. This applies to multiple applicants from the same company, as well. To assure that there be only one representative per company is an internal issue of a given corporation. The Clovis Chamber of Commerce is not responsible to ‘police’ these company’s policies.
