QUALIFIED SCREENING CATEGORIES
 
HANDMADE IN HAWAI'I
  • Should the event be limited to "Made in Hawai'i", all products must meet all legal requirements of all applicable laws and rules relating "Made in Hawai'i", including §486-119 Hawai'i made products, which states that: "No person all keep, offer, display, or expose for sale, or solicit for the sale of any item, product, souvenir, or any other merchandise which labeled "Made in Hawai'i" or which by any other means misrepresents the origin of the item as being from any place within the State, which as not been manufactured, assembled, fabricated, or produced within the State of Hawai'i and which has not had at least fifty-one percent (51%) of its wholesale value added by manufacture, assembly, fabrication, or production within the State".
  • Unlike the State of Hawai'i §486-119 applicable laws and rulings above, CREATIONS OF HAWAI'I, requires that the percentage is sixty-five percent (65%) of its wholesale value added by manufacture, assembly, fabrication, or production within the State of Hawai'i and the balance of thirty-five percent (35%) is for supplies and materials that are purchased within and/or outside of the State of Hawai'i.
 
COMBINED - WHOLESALE & RESALE
  • We will only accept items that are of quality and is required to be screened.  For example we will not accept items that are purchased from a 99¢ store and then glue another item on it and then resell it.
  • We have our integrity of quality events to maintain and we absolutely will decline any applicant's items that we feel will jeopardize the event with simply swap meet type items that is not considered as "Quality Wholesale and Resale".
