“Hello Crafters! Please mark your calendar‘s for our spring craft fair on Saturday, April 4, 2020, 10 AM to 3 PM. As some of you may know, Salem Community College is reinstating their athletic program this next school year. In order to accommodate their programs, and still reserve use of their facility, there will be no Friday night set up. Set up will begin at 6 AM on Saturday morning April 3rd, and we are pushing the start of the craft fair to 10 AM. This will give crafters four hours to set up and create their displays. Thank you for being flexible with this change, as we felt that switching venues would hurt our foot traffic that we’ve worked hard to establish over the years.
Please register and reserve the date!
5th ANNUAL SPRING CRAFT FAIR
Saturday, APRIL 4, 2020 from 10 am to 3 pm
Benefiting the athletics department at SCC Academy
Thank you for your interest in participating in our Spring Craft Fair! We are delighted that you have chosen to sell your beautifully handmade treasures with us! We are looking forward to an amazing event this April.
Our focus is to bring more foot traffic past your booth than ever before! We have a committee of 6 individuals, who will be working as a team, marketing and promoting the event through the use of radio station event listings, roadside billboards, local community boards, online events listings, Facebook events, various flyer distributions and lawn signs for the 2 weeks preceding the event. Our Craft Fair will be advertised at local events and on social media. Although we cannot guarantee the shoppers, we can guarantee that our marketing efforts this year will be extensive! We ask that you, also, will share in this advertising responsibility by posting our event flyer to your social media outlets, having paper flyers available and by inviting friends and family. We have digital versions of the flyer we can email you for you to use to get the word out also!
Set-Up / Clean-up: Our set-up and clean-up process has been updated. On the application, you have a choice to indicate when you plan to come to set up. We will have more student athletes available to assist with carrying your items to and from your car. (Set-up beings at 6am the day of the event) Please arrive in time to be set up and ready for business by 9:30 am. We ask that you do not break down until event ends at 3:00 pm. If you are unable to commit to this time schedule, please refrain from submitting an application.
Food Court: We will have concessions available. You will be able to order ahead the week prior to the event via email. Watch your inbox for that!
Please keep in mind, this is a family-friendly event, and we reserve the right to ask you to remove items that would not be appropriate for such an environment.
We recognize that an abundance of exhibitors offering the same categories of merchandise (i.e. ceramics, jewelry, folk art, leather, floral arrangements, paper, fabrics, stained glass, candles, furniture, etc.) reduces the exhibitors profit through excessive competition. If a category is filled at the time of receipt of your application and photographs are received, or if merchandise is not suitable to the character of the event, photographs and payment will be returned promptly.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
