Weekly Craft and Vendor Extravaganza - Belleville MI Photos from our event with links !!
A lot of work has gone into the planning and scheduling of this event and I'd like to take a moment here to thank some folks that really made this happen, aside from Eddie at the Bellevlle Coney Island, I'd like to thank our Tupperware and Watkins Representative; Ruth McPherson for creating our gorgeous and informative flyer, Our local new publications that have thus far agreed to post our event in their community events sections; the Belleville Independent, and The Belleville View. Also, Once Upon A Party for our donating sign that will be out near Sumpter Road in front of the Sumpter Road Plaza where the event will be taking place. Please make sure to remember these folks when you are in need of their services!
Now, with all those formalities out of the way, we would like to extend the invitation to others to join us.... Our main goal is to invite local Artisans and Crafters to provide an outlet for them to sell their merchandise that they have worked so hard to create. This would be anyone that has created things by hand... be they fabric, yarn, wood, paper or metal...painted, potted, or photographed... We know how hard it is to find a reasonably priced venue for your work and that the table fees generally outweigh the income you could produce from your hard work. That is why there is NO TABLE FEE for this WEEKLY event. We do welcome the in-home party sales representatives as well, but first option is open to the Artists and Crafters that apply. We also welcome the 501-3C Charitable organizations such as Animal Rescues and groups raising money for Cancer or Diabetes walks to help raise money for your venues. Of course, we won't be able to have any animals (unless they are assistance animals) in the facility, but you are certainly welcome to provide information about your services. Our goal is to help our community learn more about the services available within our community and the local area near us as well.
I have posted some photos of some of the "vendors" that we have scheduled thus far, if you'd like to see YOUR product listed and have your business tagged, then join us on TUESDAYS by sending me an email with your contact information, product description, website, email, and phone number. We prefer that our participants be from Belleville, MI or within 30 miles of our community so that our residents won't have to travel far to reach you when you are not participating, and to allow our local folks the opportunity to participate. Therefore, spaces will be given priority to those that are local first.
And of course... we want to meet our FANS and have you come out to shop our event : ) We will be there every Tuesday (well, some will alternate weeks) to allow you the opportunity to come down, grab a bite to eat or a cup of coffee, and do some shopping from your hard working local artists, crafters, and independent sales representatives. Tell your friends and share our blog with others... the more the merrier!
