2nd Annual SWEPTA Holiday Market & Winter Festival!

We are officially looking for local area vendors for this years event on 12/13!  Booths are $15 for 10′ x 4′ and $25 for 10′ x 10′, no additional fees, but vendors must provide their own tables/display.  We are looking to crafters and artisans from Whidbey Island and the north Seattle area who sell locally made and hand crafted items.  Unfortunately we are not taking commercial product booths, including but not limited to, direct sales like Mary Kay, Scentsy, Avon etc.  This event is a fundraiser for SWEPTA.  All booth fees and other donations from this event will go towards supporting our programs for the school like Art Docents, Teacher Grants, Field Trips, Free Family Fun Nights and more.

The goal of this event is to provide a place for local vendors to sell their handcrafted goods, as well as for community members to be able to shop locally putting their dollars right back into our community.  We will also be having a family friendly winter festival to provide free and warm activities and a Whidbey winter weekend ;).
