FALL 2020 SHOW CANCELLED

COVID-19

The state of Kentucky has enacted safety mandates to control the spread of COVID-19. The current mandate limits the number of buyers we can have in the facility at any given time. Everyone’s safety is the top priority.

To ensure everyone’s safety and to be sure we follow the mandate, we have a couple of changes for registration.

  • Two buyers per store. 
  • You will need to select an arrival time.
  • No Children.
  • No on-site registration 

If the mandate changes and we are allowed to have more buyers we will let you know.

As an attendee you will need to:

  • Wear a cloth face covering or mask over your nose and mouth if you will be closer than six(6) feet someone outside your own household/group.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands frequently.
  • Not share food, drink, containers, plates, napkins, or utensils.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, mouth or merchandise that you do not plan to purchase.
  • No handshakes, “high-fives” or hugs this time. Sorry!

If you are a member of a group particularly vulnarable to COVID-19 ( individuals with conditions identified by the CDC as higher risk or those over 65 years old), public health experts recommend that you continue to avoid any in-person gatherings and remain at home.

Why you should attend:

  • Cash and carry – Make on-the-spot purchases to stock your shelves.
  • Order Writing – Have merch delivered when you need it.
  • Be the first to discover up-and-coming products/companies.
  • Develop and maintain resources to maximize your profit.
  • Learn about the latest trends and styles.
