We will be part of Mistletoe Madness, December 4 & 5!
This year is different in many ways, including the annual Christmas Bazaar. We have partnered with the Twisp Chamber and the Town of Twisp to partner a two-day event in downtown Twisp on December 4 & 5th, 2020.
This set-up will not be for everybody. It may be cold, there may be weather, and no one will be able to change that! However, we have access to 10×10 tents, plus propane heaters for the tents. As this is a two-day event, we want to have people occupying the tents for both days.
Here are issues for vendors to consider:
1. Will you be physically able to be outside from 9-4 each day helping to set up your booth display and taking it down?
2. Are your arts or crafts items able to be outside for the same duration?
3. Would you be willing to share a booth with 1-2 others?
4. Will you be able to store your arts or crafts items or do you need a place to leave them overnight?
We have a limited number of tents, so if you own your own, please bring it. They will need to be weighted down with sandbags, which we are trying to get from a local group. During the event, there will be volunteers to help with all aspects of pulling this off nicely, help with booth set-up and take-down, and making sure groups of people are moving along a directional route to comply with social distancing guidelines. And shoveling, too, if needed!
If you have other questions, I can try to answer them, or find out who knows the answer. Due to many factors the booth fee this year will be $60.00; the community center will provide 3 tables per booth, which is why I mentioned sharing your booth with a friend or two.
For this event we will not encourage vendors that have a storefront until we have satisfied our regular Christmas Bazaar vendors. The TwispWorks campus will be alive with shoppers and on a vendor map to encourage shoppers to go there. Also, we are not featuring food vendors at this event. Next year, after Covid, it may be a different story.
Please call at 509-997-2926 or email at email@example.com and we will sign you up. Remember there is limited space, so if you can share a booth, talk to your friend(s) first, then call ASAP.
Thank you, and let’s see how we can think outside of the box.
