Montrose School Craft Fair Is Looking For Crafters For Christmas Sale

Hello crafters & artisans!

Lee Graham is the Fundraising Coordinator for the Montrose School Parent Council. They are having a holiday craft sale this year and are looking for talented artisans to help make this sale a success.

This event will take place in the heart of River Heights at Montrose School, located between Elm St. and Montrose St. on Grant Ave. The date will be Saturday, December 11th, 2010 from 9am-4pm. They have decided to do the sale later than most craft so as not to compete with the large number of sales throughout the city. They think that a sale in December is a great way to capture the sales & interest of people in the midst of the busiest shopping time of the year! In addition, they plan to advertise city wide, using print ads, internet and of course, word of mouth.

They are looking for a wide variety of crafts/talent, and hope to book 20-30 vendors for this event. Table rental is $30, and includes an 8ft banquet table. (They are currently mapping out the space and seeing how many spaces might include electrical.) On top of the table rental, they would like each vendor to donate something to our silent auction/prize draw.

If you are interested in being a part of this event, please email Lee Graham at Applications for table rental are due by November 12th, on a 1st come, 1st served basis. Please state what you are selling and include pictures if possible. (To keep the sale interesting, they must limit the number of same crafts for sale.) You will then receive an info package including payment details, set up/take down rules, advertising, etc.

All money raised from this sale (table rentals, silent auction, etc) goes to improving the technology within the classroom, to the students of Montrose School. Thanks for your interest!
Happy crafting!

Details to remember:

Name, email address, phone number
What you are selling (w/ photos if possible)
Any special requirements (they will do their best, but cannot promise that they can fulfill them)
