Crafts

  • £5 per small table (approx 90cm/35”) £10 for a large table.
  • You will be allocated the amount of space you book, so please be realistic about the space you need.
  • Each item must have a label securely attached which clearly states, item description, your name, USN and price, as this is the information stewards will record on the Daily Sales Sheets. Any item without an individual label, will not be sold, but placed under the sellers table. Cards of the same cost, will not be recorded individually on the Daily Sales Sheets, instead it will show the number purchased and cost per card.
  • You may arrange your items during the handing in times and when restocking your table. You are welcome to leave additional items under your table which stewards will use to restock.

Wall mounted Paintings

  • All paintings should be framed and have secure and taut hanging string or wire attached to the back.
  • The hanging fee is £1.00 for each painting up to 60cm square. Larger paintings will be charged at £1.50 each.
  • A completed tie on label must be securely attached to each painting so it is visible from the front which clearly states, painting description, your name, USN and price, as this is the information stewards will record on the Daily Sales Sheets.
  • We can only hang a maximum of 5 paintings per seller, an additional 4 paintings can be left with the committee and we will endeavour to display them when space becomes available.
  • Unframed painting/prints can be displayed in containers provided by the seller on the same basis as Crafts. If you intend to do this you will have to book a small or large table.
  • Paintings will be hung by committee members.
