Casino seeking Marketplace vendors
By Dean Rhodes
Spirit Mountain Casino is seeking vendors for the upcoming Spirit Mountain Marketplace, which will celebrate Native American heritage, craftsmanship and community.
The one-time event, set for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 13-14, is an opportunity to showcase handmade creations and network with like-minded individuals.
The Marketplace is seeking Native American and community members who create handmade products that are at least 80 percent crafted by hand or produced locally. To secure a place, vendors should contact Jeffrey Sittisuphachoke at 503-879-3893 to obtain details and confirm a spot as a vendor.
Fees, rules and guidelines will be available to sign, along with a table assignment, at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 13. Marketplace spots will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Vendor fee will be $30 and provides access to one table, one Flex linen, two chairs and a black linen to cover the table overnight. A second table will be available for an additional $10 fee.
The Marketplace will be located in the Events Center hallway with space for 36 vendor tables. Table placement will be determined through a lottery process on Friday, Oct. 13. Additional space up to 5 feet beside and in front of tables will be available for clothing racks.
In addition, vendors can temporarily park vehicles in the roundabout behind the hotel for unloading and loading between 9 and 10 a.m. and from 6 to 7 p.m., respectively.
