Who are we?
Hand Crafted Section
One of our advertising messages for the 2015 show will be to buy local and that you can buy a lot for your money, two of the reasons people come to the Christmas Bazaar. The other attraction is unique and unusual products. The show welcomes commercial products as well as handcrafted, however we do offer reduced booth rent to handcrafted exhibitors because of the many hours of labor that crafters put into their art compared with the typical commercial vendor.
Our definition of handcrafted is: a product that you make by yourself. The vendors work must be predominant and the starting materials must be significantly altered and/or enhanced by the vendor. This can include embellished items such as sweatshirts that your own design has been hand applied to. It can include high quality reproductions of their own original work. Some things that are not in that category are computerized printouts of, as an example, a family crest. Imported items do not qualify.
In order to qualify for the handcrafted rate, you must submit photos of your items and photos of you making your product along with your contract. In lieu of photos, you can qualify yourself if you provide us with a list of juried shows that you’ve been a part of, such as Saturday Market. We will contact the promoters of those shows to confirm your eligibility. If you sell a handcrafted product, your booth rent is reduced to $380.00 per 10 x 10, which works out to $63.33 per day.
