We are asking that everyone try and get the word out about the event. It's coming up pretty quickly... less than a month a way.

It's coming!

Hey all.

Tracey here. Just wanted to put it out there... the dead line to register for the local yokel is quickly approaching! November 15th is the date. Please have your submission forms sent in and your booth fees paid for no later than this date. That's in just 2 weeks people!

We are all getting really excited for this event! The wonderful Elle has come up with a beautimous flier for posting and advertising. We have quite a few vendors all ready signed up for the event and we are all working our little butts off getting merchandise ready for our individual booths.

We are hoping for a fantastic turn out! Can't wait to see you there!!!

New Swapping Requirement

Hi friends,

There's a new addition to the Local Yokel Craft Fair and Swap. To ensure that everyone gets to participate in the swapping element of the event, we are requiring all vendors to submit two (2) handmade items, worth about $10 each, in order to participate in the event.

What are we doing with all these donated items? One of the items goes to another vendor. That means you automatically get a handcrafted item from another vendor just for showing up and donating one of your own. The second item goes to the organizers of the event. Many people work hard to make this event happen (Kate donates the space, Jackie designs the posters, etc.) and we want to be able to compensate them somehow.

We've never charged a booth fee for the event (and don't want to) so we thought this was a fun and fair option.
Looking forward to swapping with you!
