Vallejo Crafts on the Water, Sunday, July 19, 2009

The first ever Vallejo Crafts on the Water fair is set for Sunday, July 19, 2009 from 9 AM to 4 PM. The point of this event is to feature local artists and crafters with an emphasis on those who use recycled, up-cycled, repurposed and eco-friendly items in their crafts and to promote the sales of these items. All items must be hand-crafted by the vendor. Any vendor with mass produced items or  “designer knockoffs” will be asked to leave with no refund and will not be invited back for future Crafts on the Water events. Because of our 5 acre location, we are able to offer both 10 x 10 and 10 x 15 foot spaces. 10 x 10’s are $50 and 10 x 15’s are $60. All fees are due no later than July 5th and can be paid via Paypal or check. Other than the booth fee, there are no commission costs and no percentage of your sales kept by us, so you get to keep everything you make! Vendors are allowed to split booths however, all artists/crafters must be mentioned on the application for approval. Vendors are responsible for their own set up (tents, tables, chairs, signs, etc.) and are encouraged to decorate their booths in effort to attract more foot traffic. There are no electrical outlets available. Vendors can begin arriving at 7 AM to set up. Vendors must arrive and check in no later than 8:30 AM or they will forfeit their spot with no refund. No booth tear down is to happen prior to 4 PM without permission. Because of our insurance policy, we are not able to allow food or beverage vendors however based on the success of this event, we hope we will be able to include such vendors in future events.

To apply for this event, please submit the following:

Your Name

Location

Type of product you’ll be selling

Price range of products

3 photo’s of your work (or a link to a website)

And a short bio or artists statement

Once you are notified about approval, you may submit your booth fee on Paypal.com to In Good Company account jendoubleyou@yahoo.com or send your check payment to Jenny Whisler at 223 Florida St, Vallejo CA 94590. Once payment is received, your spot is held. Refunds will be allowed if requested if something comes up and you are not able to make it up to July 5th.

We look forward to meeting all of you and having a successful Arts and Craft Festival!!

Note, if this is a hit, we are planning on making it a reoccurring event!

    I did have one question, why is it so expensive to sell at your event? When you consider you can just as easily sell at one of the many flea markets around the bay area for $15.00 TO $20.00.

    It seems you are eliminating many qualified and struggling artist.

    I think you would have to agree, many vendors would need to sell quite a bit to match the entry fee.

    Absolutely! I hate that I had to charge such a fee however, it all went to cover the insurance the city required for the event!
