As a result of discussions in Committee following our successful Open Day we have decided to remind all traders and members who sell items at Guild functions, including general meeting days and market days, that they are obliged to pay either a commission on sales or a table fee to the Guild as per the Policies and Procedures 2001.
Commissions on sales are:
Absent Vendors 50%
All traders at Market Days will be charged a flat rate per table / equivalent space of $10 for Guild members and $15 for non-members.
At the end of a Market Day, all unsold items must be removed by the vendor from the Church grounds unless the Committee decides otherwise. Absentee Vendors will still pay a commission of 50%. These fees are subject to the space offered and the cost of the venue, and may be altered by the Committee at any time.
The Committee can decide forgo the commission/table fee for specific occasions (like the Open Day) or individuals (like charitable groups who give a talk to the Guild meeting). These exceptions will be decided at a committee meeting prior to the occasion on application by the member/trader.
When we hold a Market Day members who have only a few items can add them to the Guild table. The Guild will charge a 10% commission.
