FAR Hunt Group Merchant Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in this hunt. We hope that once you have read the guidelines that you will join us. We work hard to ensure a smooth and fun hunt for our merchants and ourselves. Some of the items below will seem like common sense AND it is! However, they do need to be listed to ensure all merchants are aware of what is expected when participating in any FAR Hunt Group hunt.
The Secret Santa Hunt
Hunt Dates: December 10, 2012 thru December 31, 2012
Deadline for Applications: November 20, 2012
**As the secret santa of all our lovely hunters it’s your job to provide a gift that will knock their socks off! It does NOT have to be christmas related, this is not a themed hunt. Create as if you were giving the gift to yourself. Design the most fabulous, fun, wacky, practical or even glamorous present you can think of! Surprise the hunters with a gift that will have them ooo’ing and ahhh’ing for weeks after the hunt is over. The best guide for your creation is “If you wouldn’t want it for yourself, don’t give it as a gift!”
Of utmost importance is that all stores will be checked out prior to acceptance into the hunt. This is to ensure that hunters will be getting the best quality gifts. We do encourage All stores to apply, whether newly opened or seasoned veteran. However, please know that if your store contains affiliate vendors, or if your store contains images or products that are NOT made by you, your store will be denied. Please have at least 18-20 items for sale before you apply.
