2018 Summer Season Invitation

Apply for Summer Shows

Dear Artisans,

New for 2018, we are advertising the Vineyard Artisans Web sight on Facebook and Google in a way we have never done before, I welcome all comments and suggestions at the end of the year and let me know what you all think.  I’m hoping that this added advertising will connect all those who are on the Artisans web sight to more customers and more sales.

Welcome to all new artisans, we have an open enrollment feature, you may join us at any time through out the year. To all returning artisans, thanks to all of you for making the last show the success it was! You are the greatest representatives of hand made art on the island. Thank you all for showing your best work this year, I received so many compliments on how professional the show looked and I look forward to having another wonderful year.  please read and save this sheet, it is filled with important information.

Jurying: This jury process was the basis for your acceptance in to the show. All work was judged on the basis of design, technical skills, originality and creativity.
Space Placement: While every effort will be made to accommodate your preference the aesthetics and balance of the show have priority. The show manager also reserves the right to limit the vendors in categories in order to balance the shows.
Please read the separate Rules & Guidelines sheet for more information on booths, trash, refunds, space restrictions, etc.

Please read this information it is important!
Show “set-up” hours: All shows begin at 10:00 am. Set-up is very important and begins at 8:00 am for anyone who has a booth inside the hall, and 8:30 for outdoor artisans. If you can’t come on time or can’t come at all call me after 6:00 am the morning of the show at 508-221-5406. You can also tell someone in the show and they can give me the message when they show up. This helps to avoid holes in the show. IF I don’t hear from you and you are not in your booth by 8:30, I will move someone else over into your assigned spot.

Break down: As with all the Artisans shows you may not break down until the show has officially ended at 2:00 pm. If you are sick or have any other problems please find me so I can help.

Trash: The Preservation Trust is allowing us to use the trash barrels at the back of the hall, so please clean your area before you leave. You may not leave any boxes, display units, or trash in or outside the hall, we must leavet the hall and the grounds the way we find it after every show. The Preservation Trust rents the hall to other groups and events. Remember it is a privilege to be at the Grange Hall!

Sales tax: Sales tax is the exhibitors responsibility to collect and pay to the state.

Help: If anyone is interested in helping with the shows, please indicate it on your return application. I can always use help distributing brochures, and would be extremely grateful.

Show times: Are the same as least year 10:00 am to 2:00 pm all days.
