*The legalities of running a Business:


We understand that many people are hobbyist with their crafts. However, we also understand that there are Rules and Regulations to everything that we do as soon as we decide to sell a product to someone outside our circle of family and friends. Once you have made that first sale to the General Public via Facebook, Etsy, Craft show, etc. your hobby is now considered a business by the State of Texas. Depending on the product that you sell, it may have other regulatory agencies that govern the manner in which it can be sold, packaged, labeled, advertised, and the conditions in which it can be produced in for sale to the General Public, such as our Marketplace. We have watched many friends lose their remaining livelihood, and life savings, because of this.


To help alleviate this problem, we have created a Vendor Apprenticeship Program to assist you with the process of going from Hobbyist to Small Business Owner! While vending at our location, only,  we have several options to assist you with achieving small business goals or just being able to sell your crafts. The Vendor Apprenticeship Program is just one of the ways we help our Vendors Succeed. 

"I have so many challenges to be able to go somewhere to sell my crafts. There has to be another way?"

There is!  Stop by, bring a few samples of what you are selling with you, and we can talk about it in greater detail. If what you make, bake, grow, create, or procure from a unique source fits in the Guilds of Requiem Branding, we may be able to offer you Consignment Space under the big orange tent.

"So what is the Guilds of Requiem Brand?"

Guilds of Requiem is based on sustainability and preservation of nature. The products currently found in our tent are made with as close to natural ingredients as possible, items found in nature - without disrupting the natural balance, made from re-purposed, recycled, or up-cycled materials, are hand-crafted in exquisite detail, and/or were purchased directly from International Crafters who have this as their only form of livelihood as a part of our Requiem Kenya, Requiem Ghana Direct Sister Organizations, or from World Of Love Imports.
