Optional information is not required at this time, but may expedite our evaluation of your application and may become required at a later date.

  • Only one application per dealer business/entity please!

  • We may need to contact you in order to obtain additional information, so please make sure to check your email you have provided as your contact regularly.

  • NOTE: If your application is found to be lacking any critical information for us to make a decision, we will reach out to the above email. If you do not provide the requested information before February 24th, your application will be discarded and you will not be notified of approval or denial.

  • The Dealer Application will be open until 11:59 PM on February 24th, 2023.

Application FAQ


What if I see a Google Sign In page when I first open the application Link?

  • This is expected! We are using Google Forms with a file submission option. Due to this a valid Google account is required. If you do not have a Google account to use with this form, please contact us at

  • NOTE: This email/account does not need to be associated with your business. A question on the form itself will ask for your “Contact Email” where you should supply the email in which you will receive all notifications and communication regarding the application and your status as a potential Dealer.


Does the “Preferred Name” need to match my Discord username?

  • No. This is simply for what we will address you as in our communications with you regarding this application and regarding your status as a potential dealer.


What is a “Public Business Name” or “Doing Business As”?

  • Related to the Legal Business Name above, a registered "DBA" or “Doing Business As” registration, also called an “assumed name,” is a name that your business may operate by or advertise as that differs from your legal business name.

  • For our purposes, this field is used to specify what name you would want listed on our site, media posts, and convention literature to refer to your business.


What is the Public Listing?

  • This is your description of your business that will be used to publicly list your business on our website, media posts, and convention literature.

  • Due to limitations on these mediums we have limited the entry to a maximum of 280 characters and reserve the right to edit it as needed to best fit those needs.

  • Imagine this was a single twitter post you’re allowed to make to advertise your business. Similar to that, carriage returns (or a new line) do count against this limit.


How does that differ from the “Detailed Product Offering”?

  • The “Detailed Product Offering” is your typed description of what your business will be displaying and selling at our convention if approved. Please be as detailed as possible!

  • Yes you can provide links to your products online, or photos of them here. Please note that if you have a full photo of your table, use the following questions to submit that.

  • If you have any After Dark (AD), Adult, or “Adult Novelty” items you plan to sell, please include details on them here.

  • NOTE: This question is marked as Required as we do need a written description of what your business is going to be offering for sale.


What else can I ask for in the “Other Requests” section?

  • Anything! If you have a special need or a cool idea, please let us know!

  • This section is particularly important if you have a specific need or needs for your dealer space that will prevent you from being successful if not met. We’d rather be able to apologize early if we can’t meet your needs this year than have them come up during setup! If we cannot meet your needs this year, we’ll also be taking notes for improving our Dealer Den for next year.

  • As stated on the question, we cannot guarantee any requests in this section.


So I’ve submitted my application, what now?

  • Thank you for applying! We’ll reach out to you via the contact email you’ve provided with any additional questions or notices as needed.

  • NOTE: If your application is found to be lacking any critical information for us to make a decision, we will reach out to the above email. If you do not provide the requested information before February 24th, your application will be discarded and you will not be notified of approval or denial.

  • You will receive notification of your approval or denial on or before March 3rd.

Dealer Registration Information

Dealers registration and table fees are separated, but can be purchased and arranged in the same step, along with adding Dealer Assistant registrations and upgrading any registration being made. Dealer registrations are the same price, tier options, and early discount structure as regular registrations. They also follow the same cancellation and refund policies. (For details please refer to the Registration page.) In the event that a Dealer has already registered via the regular Registration page, we only need their legal name to attribute them as a Dealer before pre-registration has closed.


Dealers are subject to the NCAS Member Code of Conduct as a requirement of holding this membership as well as the NCAS Vendor Code of Conduct Addendum. Violations of these Codes of Conduct will result in sanctions as defined in those documents/pages. The actions of a Dealer Assistant can and will result in sanctions against the Dealer they are associated with.


Dealer Registration FAQ

What If I’ve already registered to attend Blue Ridge Furfare 2023 before my Dealer Application was approved?

  • No worries! We can attribute your "Dealer" status to the existing registration and there will be an “I’ve already registered” option on the registration page we send to you that you should select when completing the payment for your dealer table.


Dealer Den Schedule

The Dealer Den schedule will be:

  • Setup: 1 week before the convention. This will begin March 10th and end March 17th

  • Opening: March 17th, 6 PM-7 PM

  • Closing: March 19th, 5 PM 



The “Setup” period of the dealer den schedule will be the period 1 week before the convention in which dealers can set up their Discord forums (areas where business will be conducted).



The “Opening” period will be the portion right after opening ceremonies where attendees will be permitted to explore the server, attend panels, and go to your forum! You are allowed to conduct business whenever you want until the end of the convention, be it 3 PM, or 3 AM. 



The “Closing” period is when closing ceremonies will take place. At this point we will start winding down. We will leave a few things running Sunday however, so feel free to stick around for a bit after.



Dealer Den Rules

Dealers are required to know and follow the rules below in order to maintain their status as an Approved Dealer for the Blue Ridge Furfare 2023 convention. It is the responsibility of the dealer to check this page regularly for updates and changes.


Displays, Merchandise, and Services

  1. Items offered for sale in the Dealer Den should be related to the theme of the convention or should have a broad appeal to furries and others in attendance at Blue Ridge Furfare.

  2. Items that are illegal to possess or sell in the United States, State of North Carolina, or City of Durham (Firearms or restricted weapons, pornography involving minors, etc.) are prohibited in the Dealer Den. Items that require a specific permit or license to display or sell shall require the Dealer to present the license and are subject to approval by Dealer Den staff.

  3. Depiction of real or fictional minors in adult situations is prohibited.

  4. Any item that is prohibited for direct sale is also not permitted for display, giveaway, or delivery during or after the convention unless otherwise specified.

  5. The dealer that has been approved is the only dealer allowed to sell items from the forum post assigned. Do not sell goods on behalf of another in our forum post unless those goods were described in your Dealer Application and you are collecting and remitting sales tax for these items under your own business for tax purposes.

  6. Merchandise and products (including commissioned works) of an adult or sexual nature, or containing such content are regulated by the following rules within the Dealer Den.

    1. Such items whose primary purpose is functional rather than artistic (such as novelty items, personal care items, and toys) are prohibited at this time. As we encourage public health and safety for its attendees, an exception is made for sale or giveaway of condoms and similar prophylactics.

    2. Artwork, clothing, or other items of an appropriate but adult nature may be sold only if they are kept from public view. Such items must be covered or similarly shielded according to the details below.

      1. Artwork containing adult material should not be posted in Dealer’s Den forums. However, linked portfolio sites with adult material and appropriate warning are allowed.

    3. Dealers are directly and fully responsible for ensuring that minors are not permitted to view, handle, or be otherwise exposed to adult materials. Dealers who are found to be displaying adult-oriented items in such a fashion that they can be viewed by underage members will be afforded a single warning; further incidents may result in that dealer being removed from the Dealers Room without refund and possible loss of Dealers Room privileges for future conventions. Dealer Den staff have final say as to the suitability of wares for display or sale by dealers.

    4. Dealers should be aware that children, parents, venue employees, members of the press, and other members of the public may be present in the Dealer Den during open hours. All signs, banners, standing displays, etc. must, therefore, abide by a "PG" or better rating. Any display that may be damaging to our community or NCAS’ public image is strictly forbidden.

  7. Any artwork, merchandise, or paraphernalia, whether for sale or free, that would violate any terms of our Member Code of Conduct if worn or displayed is strictly prohibited.

    1. In specific any of the above that features hate speech, hate group iconography, or espouses violence, discrimination, or similar objectionable content is strictly prohibited.

    2. Determining what qualifies as any of these restricted items is the sole discretion of Dealer Den staff or convention leadership.

  8. No items may be produced or sold that bear the name “Blue Ridge Furfare,” the Blue Ridge Furfare logo, or any other intellectual property that Blue Ridge Furfare or NCAS have created without due licensure from North Carolina Anthropomorphic Society, Inc. (NCAS).

    1. Such a licensing agreement requires a licensing fee and pre-approval of the use of the intellectual property on such items before they are produced. If you would like to obtain such a license agreement, please contact us at before designing or producing such items.



  1. In any dispute regarding these rules, the operations of the dealer den, a dealer’s status and ability to sell at the convention, or related matters regarding dealers, Dealer Den staff and convention leadership have final say.

  2. You may appeal a decision to a higher staff member if you feel it is necessary. As fair warning, the higher the position an appeal goes for decision the busier the staff member usually is. The staff member may not have time to review your issue until well after its immediacy has passed.
