2016 Athens Art Guild Holiday Shoppe Application

The Holiday Shoppe will be at the Athens Community Center at 701 East State State St. in Athens. Show hours: Saturday, Dec. 10 (10 am – 5 pm) & Sunday, Dec. 11 (12 pm – 5 pm), 2016. BOOTHS MUST BE ATTENDED DURING ALL OPERATING HOURS.

Spaces are $75 for a 10' x 10' space for members and $100 for non members. Each additional 10’ x 10’ space will cost another $75 or $100 depending on if you are a member or not. Please check if you want electricity. Electricity is ONLY on a first come, first served basis. The gym at the community center is very bright though - most do fine without lights.

All Athens Art Guild members will be accepted as vendors before non-members. There are a limited number of spaces available in the venue - vendors will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Each vendor will be asked to donate a piece to our raffle - it will be a "dollar social" type of raffle like they have at The Dairy Barn. Patrons buy a dollar ticket and place it in a cup that corresponds with a piece they want.

No tables will be provided - we ask you to bring your own chairs but there will be chairs available if needed.

Set up will be Friday, Dec. 9th from 6 – 9 pm and/or Saturday, Dec. 10th starting at 8:00 am. Booths must be ready for business by 10:00 am on Sat, 12:00 PM on Sun. Tear down will be Sunday Dec. 11th after 5 pm. Once you have been confirmed as a vendor, further information will be sent about set-up and tear down and other general information.

All work displayed for sale in the vending area must be made by the artist/craftsperson. No kit work, commercial molds or resale items.

All vendors are required to have business liability insurance to vend with the Athens Art Guild. If you need information on companies to contact please email Athens Art Guild at kellygreenmantle@gmail.com. You must have a copy of your company and policy number with you during the show.

Also, you must have a transient vendor’s license and have a copy of your number with you when you vend.

For non-members, when applying, if no one on the committee is familiar with your work you may be asked to send photos if you do not have a website. Your pictures will be returned if you provide postage.

No walk in vendors accepted. NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER NOVEMBER 14th. Note: This deadline allows time to jury non-members.
You will be notified once you have filled out an application - all fees must be received by November 21st.

Athens Art Guild and the Athens Community Center reserve the right to ask any vendor to leave who does not respect the rules of this application, staff of the facility and event, or behaves in a manner not suitable to a family atmosphere. Also, we ask that your work be appropriate for children.

Athens Art Guild and the Athens Community Center are not liable for any damage and/or theft of personal property or artwork during the show, set up or tear down.
