In the event of a disagreement at any level the management of GCGS has the right to refuse or cancel any and all agreements made between vendor and GCGS whether made verbally, written, electronically, or otherwise. Deposits will not be returned in the event of a Vendor misleading, hiding facts, or outright lying about being a company or a regular flea market Vendor. The GCGS spends a tremendous amount of time and money to make the event successful. The GCGS attracts thousands or people to their events, not hundreds. The GCGS Event and the Free booths are a “privilege” and not a right owed to any company or individual. GCGS is about supporting the community, local Charities, and the less privileged in our area. That is one of the reason such effort is put forth to make the booth “Free” for personal Garage Sale individuals. If you’re a business or professional flea market Vendor you will most likely still be able to take advantage of the GCGS Marketing strategy to bring in customers because we offer a tremendous value to the people that come to the show, but you need to contact management to come to an agreement about booth fees. (Which will be very fair and reasonable). Please keep in mind the only thing of value GCGS asks from the “free” Vendors is that they donate what they feel comfortable leaving behind for The Salvation Army and all their Volunteer work. The attitude expected by the people (Vendors) that represent the Great Canadian Garage Sale is of a kind, pleasant, and calm demeanour. The GCGS will not tolerate rude and offensive behaviour towards other Vendors, customers, or management. GCGS Management will however be reasonable and listen fully to both sides of a complaint before rendering any decisions. In kind GCGS will also not tolerate unacceptable behaviour towards a Vendor. Please remember you are not just representing yourself, you’re also representing our sponsors that made it possible for Vendors to have free booths, all the volunteers and Charities, the facility, and GCGS.
We want everyone to have fun, sell lots, and have a positive experience!
