BAY AREA DIVERS is completing plans for their 31th Annual Scuba Divers Flea Market. This is the LARGEST Divers Flea Market in Texas with divers shopping for NEW and USED equipment and other diving accessories at YOUR table. Date for the Flea Market is set for October 14th, 2006.

The Flea Market will again be held at CD "CAP" Landolt Pavilion (see flyer and map).

** Set up time for exhibitors is from 7 AM to 10 AM **

 

BAD appreciates your interest and we will do everything possible to make your day fun and profitable. A group of our members will be available at 7 AM to help you unload your vehicle and another group will help you reload at 5 PM. Our members will furnish: tables with table covers, two-wheel hand trucks, ladders for signs, some extension cords, and electricity. If you have any special needs, please contact our Chairperson. As vendors reserve their space at the Flea Market, they will be listed on our website www.bayareadivers.org.  If you would like to have a link from our website to yours, please include it on your application. The Bay Area Divers website is very active and has a lot of divers checking it regularly for new information. This is a good marketing opportunity for your company or organization..

As in the past, we will hold door prize drawings every hour. You may make your contributions to the speaker's table (located on the stage) and your organization will be recognized over the PA. In addition, we will be giving special recognition to those companies or organizations that contribute to door prizes on our website at www.bayareadivers.org. 

Also, any coupons provided by you for specials at your table will be handed out at the gate. These coupons can be any size, shape or color with or without time restrictions good for specific items at your table on that day only. Or if you don't have time to create your own coupons, but would like to run specials, we will be announcing "dive flag specials" throughout the day. These announced specials were especially effective last year to stimulate sales. You can make a list of your specials and the times you are offering them and turn the list in to the announcer in the morning or you can turn each special in to the announcer at any time during the day.

A deposit (see application enclosed) will hold your table selection until 10 AM, October 14th. In the past, we have had vendors ask us to hold a table and then not show or call. This year we will release your table at 10 AM if you are a "no show". Also, there will be no "sub-let" of tables or space to other vendors. One of our BAD officers will collect the balance of your table rental about noon.

Table rental fees will be the same as last year. The entry fee for the public will be $4. To aid in control of access to exhibitors' tables, we will allow two free salespersons per table. These individuals will have their hands stamped prior to 10 AM. After the initial stamping, all other salespersons will pay the entry fee. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. We will also offer a consignment table set up and run by BAD for those individuals that have items to sell and cannot be available to man an individual table all day.

A list of commonly asked questions (FAQs with answers)  is found at this link. Please contact us for clarification of these questions or additional questions you may have. Also, we welcome any suggestions or ideas you have to make this market better.  

As in years past, this application is being mailed to everyone on the same day - FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE! Your canceled check will be your receipt. If you have any additional questions, call our Chairperson at the phone number listed below (when not at home, this phone is answered by an answering machine). We look forward to seeing all of you at the Fleamarket!.
