SWEPTA (South Whidbey Elementary PTA) is still currently looking for a few more vendors for our December 3rd Holiday Market!
This is a community event to get Whidbey Island area crafters and artisans in one place for locals and visitors to shop. There are no commercial or direct sales booths/products at this event. It is all handmade/handcrafted/embellished or services in our area.
The market will be in the gym, this is our 4th year holding this event and it is a fundraiser for the PTA. The last 3 years we raised money for the school, and while the event was small, it also put money back into other homes and small businesses in our community and all the vendors wanted to return. We are already expecting more vendors this year then in years past.
* 2 booth sizes available 10×10 for $25 (limited) and 8×4 for $15, no additional commissions!!!
* You must provide your own table(s) and chair.
* Contact us ASAP, we are taking late applications until 11/30 or spots are full (could be sooner or later). This is not a juried event but we do limit duplicate booths so don’t wait.
* Due to safety we can not have pets or small children in vendor booths unless they are infants please.
Some of the types of booths we are looking for, but are NOT limited too: Pottery, jewelry, clothing, toys, fiber wears, art, holiday decor, home decor items, small gifts and lots, lots more!
If interested contact Kymy Johnson the event coordinator.
