Unitarian Universalist Womenspirit is a volunteer organization whose purpose is to enhance the religious and spiritual development of women by creating, conducting, and supporting activities that encourage and enable women to explore their religious beliefs. One of our goals is to pursue, nurture, and affirm creativity. We believe that one way that goal can be achieved is by providing the space and opportunity for those in attendance to sell their handmade items or bring women-focused merchandise which the participant sells in her shop or on-line web site. Our UUWomenspirit Sales Area has been a treasured launching pad for many artists. The intimacy and appreciation for our sisters’ talents is invaluable. For this reason, we ask that if you did not make it yourself, or if you are not the owner of a business which features woman-focused products, please do not submit a sales agreement.

All sellers must sign this agreement prior to any sales during UUWomenspirit events. Any woman’s failure to comply with this agreement will result in the revocation of that woman’s privilege to offer sales during UUWomenspirit events. Established sales times will be a part of the schedule. No sales may occur during scheduled worship times. No sales are allowed in any track or workshop.

Each woman must handle her own display and sales. UUWomenspirit will not be responsible for any sales. Merchandise sales must occur in the designated area only. Neither UUWomenspirit nor The Mountain assumes liability for loss, theft, injury or damage. Collecting and remitting North Carolina sales tax is the responsibility of the seller.

Space in the Sales Area will be assigned to you prior to your arrival. We ask you to provide your own tables, table cloths, display racks, etc. However, The Mountain often has some tables available, so don’t hesitate to email the Event Sales and Activities Coordinator at least one week before the event. She will try her best to meet your needs.

Also, you will need to supply your own change for each transaction. Checks will be made directly to you, the seller. You are responsible for the signage concerning this information.

The Participant Directories for UUWomenspirit events may not be sold to outsiders or used for marketing. Feel free to provide brochures, cards, and a sign-up sheet for your own mailing list, etc., in your display area. Please send out business solicitations and notices only to those who have signed up on your mailing list and not the entire UUWomenspirit group.

Ten percent (10%) of your total sales amount must be paid to UUWomenspirit as commission. This commission must be paid at the close of the last scheduled sales time or before departing the site, whichever occurs first. UUWomenspirit also appreciates donations of items as door prizes for the UUWomenspirit Membership meeting. Please provide any donations to the Sales and Activities Coordinator before Friday at 5pm.

You may begin setting up your sales area after you have registered on Wednesday or Friday. You will be advised of your reserved location at that time.

Scheduled sales times will be listed in the daily schedule included in your welcome packet. (Sales breakdown Sunday 1:00 – 2:00 pm with commissions to be given to the Sales and Activities Coordinator by 1:00 pm).

Licensed massage therapists may offer their services, provided they meet the above criteria as well as the additional criteria listed below.

Massage Therapist Standards
When offering massage therapy for events, the following additional standards must be met:

  • Massage therapist must be currently practicing and submit a copy of her license or other credible certification accepted by the location of her practice to the Event Sales and Activities Coordinator before arrival.
  • Massage therapist needs to provide a form to be signed by herself and the guest receiving the massage which will release The Mountain and UUWomenspirit from liability for any injuries sustained by the guest as a result of the therapy and should submit a copy of that form to the Event Sales and Activities Coordinator before arrival.
