We must be able to remove labels easily to tally your sales. If a label falls off during the sale, the item will be removed from the floor until re-labeled by the artist. SCAA commission for all work in this sale is 30% of the selling price.

Pottery: Twenty (20) pieces of pottery for each artist will be displayed during initial set-up, as space allows, which is dependent on the number of participants and total pottery inventory. This total does not include mugs, basket items, or cards (see below.) For sets, label 1 of 2, 2 of 2 “set” with price on one piece only. No “2 for” pricing, ie: “$4 each or 2 for $6”.
