Chappaqua Craft Fair

The P.T.A. of the Robert E. Bell School in Chappaqua announces its

31st Annual Chappaqua Craft and Gift Fair

at Bell Middle School  

Saturday, November 7, 2015, 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

We will be accepting a limited number of vendors per category.  This will ensure that we maintain a balanced selection of products, which will ultimately aid each vendor in being successful.  Priority will be given to those selling hand-made crafts and food items.  We are always looking for new vendors, so please tell a friend.

Vendors will be selected shortly after October 4th.  Applications received after October 4th will be wait-listed.  Once your application is accepted, you will receive a confirmation email.  Some vendors will receive their confirmation within a few weeks of submission.  Final decisions for the remainder of spots will be made after October 4th.  All communications will be made via email.  If your application is denied, your check will be returned to you.

Booths:  We offer free admission to the community and do not charge a commission to vendors.  We are charging $130 per booth, regardless of the size.  (We have spaces that are 10’x10’, 8’x10’, 9’ x 9’ or 5’ x12’).  All special requests must be indicated on the application form and will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.

10x10 Booth Guarantee:  A 10x10 booth, in the Gymnasium or Auditorium, can be guaranteed at an additional cost of $20 per booth.  Payment of a guarantee is required for those bringing tents, as these spots are limited and in high demand.

Tents and Vertical Displays:  You must inform us if you intend to use tents or vertical displays higher than 5 feet.  The use of tents requires payment of a 10x10’ booth guarantee.  Tents and high displays will be assigned booths along the perimeter in one of the two main rooms.  This is because we want to ensure that each vendor is visible and not hidden behind another vendor’s setup.

Tables:  Tables are available to rent for $22 each.  You are welcome to bring your own tables if you choose.

Chairs:  Please bring your own chair.  We do not provide or rent chairs.

Electricity:  Please indicate if you require electricity.  If you do require electricity, your booth location will be limited to those booths within a safe distance of an outlet.

Photos:  Please send us photos of your items (or a link to your web site) to assist us in approving your application.  By submitting your application to us, you give us permission to use any photos you send us in our promotional materials, including our website and Facebook page.

Payment:  Please mail your confirmation and check made out to: “The Robert E. Bell P.T.A.” to the address below:

Confirmation of receipt of check will be sent via e-mail.  Space assignments will be emailed in October. Your checks will be returned if your application is denied. 

Any photos that could not be emailed may be included as well.  Only emailed photos will appear in our promotional materials.

Raffle:  Our raffle, which benefits the Robert E. Bell PTA, has become a huge success.  If you would like to contribute an item of your choice to the raffle, we encourage you to do so, but you are of course not required to.  Vendors who have participated in the raffle in the past have told us that they found it to be helpful in increasing traffic to their booths. 

If you have any questions, please contact:  Jennifer Belew at ChappaquaCraftFair@yahoo.com, or refer to the FAQ’s at www.chappaquacraftfair.com.

 

We look forward to your participation in our Craft and Gift Fair.
