TRADE RULES

 This is a pre-1840 rendezvous and everyone should know what that  means. Please keep the spirit of that in mind and police yourself so no  one else has to. Thank you for your attention to details and your help  in keeping our camp as authentic as possible. We are happy to help and  answer any questions you may have.
 

Here are a few guidelines and reminders.
 

All trade goods must be Pre-1840!
 

The Booshway or the appointed Trade Chief has final authority over all disputes involving trade goods.
 

All furs and animal parts for sale must comply with local, State and  Federal laws. The individual trader is responsible for the legality of  his trade goods.
 

No plastic in sight. This includes blister packs, Styrofoam, blanket wraps, candy containers, etc.
 

No sticky tags.
 

Books, magazines, patterns, original works of art and limited edition prints must pertain to the pre-1840 fur trade era.
 

All guns for sale must be pre-1840. No in-line or plastic stocked rifles.
 

All trading must be done in camp. No tailgate set-ups will be allowed in the parking area.
 

All trading must be done from pre-1840 structures or blankets and authorized by the rendezvous.
 

Please remember that many buck skinners look to traders as informed  sources of knowledge on the fur trade era. Help them and credit yourself  by setting a proper example with correct trade goods and their  presentation. Good Traders are an important asset and essential to any  period event. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
