Brandon Craft and art sales to perk up chilly days
BRANDON — For the third year, the Compass Music and Arts Center is holding a series of sales during the winter months, giving crafters, artists and music enthusiasts an opportunity to sell their goods make some extra cash, free up some storage space and give someone else the chance to make use of and enjoy their items.
The cost is the same at all three sales: $20 per space ($5 additional charge per table, if renting) for each 6-by-6-foot selling space, with a maximum of three spaces per seller. Spaces are limited. No commission is taken so items should be priced to sell. Registration forms are available online at www.cmacvt.org, by phone at 802-247-4295 or by email at [email protected].
Crafters will be able to sell their unwanted crafting supplies, materials and handmade crafted items at the Craft Sale on Saturday, Jan. 30, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Crafters may sell supplies and materials like used equipment, unopened kits, surplus yarns or fabrics, or handmade goods such as “seconds” or other reduced-priced crafts.
Organizers request that the ratio of supplies to completed crafts be at least 50/50, and higher if possible. Send completed registration form and payment by check by Thursday, Jan. 28.
Artists can sell their unwanted art supplies, materials or artwork at the Art Sale on Saturday, Feb. 27, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Artists may sell unused art supplies as well as finished artwork if it is at a reduced price such as a “second” or older work. This is not a sale in which to offer full-priced, gallery-ready pieces.
Organizers request that the ratio of supplies to completed artwork should be at least 50/50, and higher if possible. Send completed registration form and payment by check by Thursday, Feb. 25.
