Artist Sale Tax Information

To simplify the process of applying for a Pennsylvania Sales Tax License (Temporary Vendor Certificate) and paying your taxes after the event, the necessary forms and instructions are provided on this website. There is an “Artist Sales Tax License” button on the home page. You will find answers to many of your questions regarding how to apply for a Pennsylvania sales tax license, how to avoid receiving repeated reminders from the State after the event about sales tax payments, how to pay sales taxes, and how to calculate sales taxes. You can download and print copies of the required forms. Click here to access the PA-100 form required to obtain a sales tax license (temporary vendor certificate).

Dress Code

Attendees are requested to dress casually in order to promote an informal and relaxed atmosphere. This is true for attending the dinners too. This will leave more room in your luggage for your new purchases. On “Social Friday” we suggest that you wear your funkiest, silliest or most outrageous doll or teddy bear top (e.g., blouse/shirt/jacket) in order to create a fun and casual atmosphere among the artists and collectors. On “Shopper’s Saturday” we suggest you wear your favorite doll or teddy bear top and accessories (e.g., blouse/shirt/ jacket/jewelry/pins) in order to create a fun atmosphere for the public at the Saturday Artist Doll & Teddy Bear Sale.

Money Back Guarantee

This is the only event in 2018 that offers you a money back guarantee by returning your registration fee if you can find another doll or teddy bear event that offers you all of the features and activities for the same reasonable fee.
