Due to high demand for stalls at the craft fairs, makers will be selected using the following criteria:
- Crafts that are actually made by the stallholder.
- Crafts are of good quality
- the stallholder lives or has their workshop:
1) within NG5
2) within Nottingham
3) within Nottinghamshire
- We then choose stalls to balance the variety of types of craft.
- If the stall holder does not submit payment by the due date the offer will be forfeited and stall will be re-allocted to another artist/maker.
- All work must be original and made by the person entering the event.
- Anything hazardous and a risk to safety will not be accepted - the organisers reserve the right to make the final decision in the event of a dispute.
- You will be expected to provide your own table, not more than 6' wide, and if possible your own gazebo.
- Your work should be clearly priced.
- You are responsible for setting up your own stall and helping others to set up their stalls where possible.
- On the Friday before the Fair, the framework of the garden stalls will be erected and Gazebos can be erected and left overnight in the garden – weather permitting.
Your help would be very much appreciated.
- There is no parking on-site.
- At the Secret Garden Craft Fair, on the Saturday, there will be two distinct 'setting-up' times - the earlier time will be allocated to those on stands further into the premises.
These times must be adhered to in order to ease flow through the grounds and allow access at all times to the bungalows behind.
- You must take down the stall at the end of the day (whether it is your own gazebo or a SAW market Stall) by the time to be specified and take away all rubbish from your stand.
- Insurance for your work will be your responsibility.

Toys or items that look like they may be toys: must either clearly state that it is NOT a toy, or be CE tested.
Candles and home fragrancing: safety notifications should be present on all products (e.g., do not leave a burning candle unattended, etc.)
Cosmetics (including soap and bath products): must be assessed for human safety by a qualified pharmacist, correctly labelled with a full ingredients list, and registered on the EU Portal for cosmetics (which is accessible by all health professionals across Europe, in case of adverse reaction). Please could you provide us a copy of the front sheet of the safety assessment. Your labelling will be checked on the day.
