Calling All Vendors & Crafters!!! (Updated Application)

Dear Vendor,

You may be wondering why the vendor application for Rainier.  I sent out applications in May or so but since then, for various reasons we have turned over sponsorship to the City of Rainier, which this application reflects.  If you have already sent in your application - would you mind filling this one out and bringing it when you come?  If you haven't yet filled it out we still have plenty of room to get you in.  Things will still be handled pretty much the same.  I will still be in the trailer to oversee so you are looking at the same setting and still the fourth weekend at the Round Up.  Hope to see you there.

Thank you,
Karen Creamer

Rainier Roundup Days Vendor Applications Being Accepted

Dear Vendor,

Rainier Roundup is just around the corner from August 26th to 28th  with the main parade day being on the 27th.  We will again have vendors  row.  Setup on the evening of the 25th or morning of the 26th.  

 Application attached.  (Below)

I have attempted to set a fill in application that you can fill in, print off, sign, add check drop in the mail.

City permit is only if you don't have a business permit with the city of Rainier.  You will need a temporary business permit with the city but just add it to the vendor permit and we take care of it for you.

Hope this application works.  For now it is only in Microsoft word.  Hope to have it in Adobe in the next couple of days.  Let me know if you have  trouble with it.

Thank You,
Karen Creamer

Hi George, don't know if you know Rainier's "Tractor Bob"
but his tractor was vandalized and he can't afford to get it up
and going again, so Tim Brogan set up this GoFundMe account.
I thought you might be able to pass it around to help him out.


Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!

Deni & Chris Hansen Wedding April 6, 2016

By:  George Johnson

This week a couple of very special people got married. Chris Hansen and Deni Gieger, owners of Storage Auction Liquidators, took their vows at the public gazebo in downtown Rainier. 

Tom Cook lead them with their vows in front of a group of family and friends in a colorfully decorated gazebo. It you missed being a part of the day, do stop in the store and wish them what they truly deserve, nothing but the best.

Deni & Chris have become fixtures in our community, since bringing their store to downtown Rainier. They carry a wide variety of items and their inventory changes daily, which includes hand crafted items created by fourteen local artists.  

If you’ve ever stopped in their store in downtown Rainier, you know what wonderful people they are, not to mention the great deals they offer. They both put you instantly at ease and seem like old friends, when you meet them.


Before the wedding, George & I helped Jem (from Signature Realty), decorate the gazebo in Rainier before the bride & groom arrived.  We decorated in Seahawk colors - in honor of their favorite team.
