We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. We also accept checks or money orders, or cash (please don’t mail cash).  Each contract has a place on it to fill out credit card information for the individual show. No space is held without payment. Contracts are subject to approval and if rejected all monies will be returned.

All forms need to be accompanied by a 30% deposit at the time of signing and a credit card* for payments. The balance will be broken into two or more payments and charged to the merchant’s credit card. All shows need to be paid off no later than 60 days before the first day of that show. All payments are non-refundable at any time.

*If your credit card payment is declined for any reason you will be allowed a 10 day grace period. If payment is not received during the grace period any payment plans will be terminated and the full unpaid balance will be due immediately.

We begin assigning spaces for the next year’s show the last day of the current year’s show, unless otherwise noted. All remaining spaces are assigned on a first come basis. New shows or new venues are assigned on a first come basis.

The Whole Bead Show Inc/Bead Renaissance Shows dates and locations may change without notice (due to unforeseen circumstances). We are not responsible for any expenses incurred due to change of schedule.
