Spring Youth Craft Fair Events

This is an opportunity for kids and teens (19 and younger) to display and sell their artistic creations. The stores will set up 6’ banquet tables in our classrooms and allow participants to reserve a 3’ area (half of a table) for set up. This space will accomodate three people (siblings or a single vendor and a parent). Item prices are set by each vendor. The store will advertise this event through our store database, and friends on  Facebook & Instagram.

Participants are encouraged to share the event on social media as well. 

How To Reserve A Vendor Space:
In order to reserve a table in the craft fair please call or visit the particular store location you are wanting to be a vendor after reading this complete registration. Vendors may participate in both events but will require a registration at each location.
