Most of our venues will carry insurance for damage or theft that occurs at their expense. We will confirm this with each host venue. If artist merchandise is not covered via the venue, BSA will purchase an insurance rider to provide coverage. Although we will make every effort to secure artist’s inventory, BSA cannot be held responsible for theft via shoplifting during events. We ask our artists to take precautions:

  • Get to know your neighbors and help each other keep an eye on the environment
  • Get coverage for your booth if you want to take a break
  • If you see something, say something to Lauri or Lynn
  • Keep a detailed inventory and sales record for each day of event
  • For two-day events:
    • consider taking your valuable items home overnight
    • Take photos (or video) of your booth after set-up and again before you leave the site
