The show, formally “A Holiday Affair,” has been renamed “The Pop Up Artisan Shop.” You are more than welcome to bring holiday items for sale! After a short hiatus due to COVID restrictions, we are happy to bring back this popular two-day event. It opens Friday night with a party featuring light hors d’oeuvres and wine for purchase. The fair continues Saturday and will also include food concessions.
You’ll be able to set up Friday around noon. The room will be secure so you may leave your items overnight at your display. The fee will be $45, which includes a six-foot table and two chairs for both days. Each artist will be responsible for his/her sales and taxes.
We will not be taking a commission on sales. Please note that all items for sale must be handcrafted and made by the participating artist. Artists must be present for the majority of the event.
The deadline to submit an application is Sept. 30. Any applications received after Sept. 30 will be reviewed at the discretion of the program director with regards to availability. Applications will be judged on originality, skill level, and price point- items at the $100 and under price point are the best sellers. Additional consideration will be given to returning artisans.
Please refer to our What’s New page, under Activities, to download our registration form, or come by the front desk in the Village Center. We’re receptive to your suggestions about other possible participants. If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Program Director, Anne Hughes O’Neil, at 301-656-2797 or via email at [email protected] Selected artisans will be notified by Oct. 6.
