St. John’s Holiday Show of Hands has over 150 crafters. Each year the top 75% of our vendors are invited to return. With approximately 25 spaces available yearly, we are always seeking exciting new crafts for our show.
We invite interested crafters to bring a few samples of their work to be viewed by members of our Craft Fair committee on the first Wednesday in March from 9am to 4pm in our hall. We also ask you to bring a stamped, self-addressed envelope and a snapshot or two of your crafts which we may keep.
The jurying does not take very long. We generally have three tables going…one crafter showing items to the committee, one packing his/her samples, and one unpacking his/her crafts. You do not need to leave your samples. We do not schedule appointments.
Craft Fair vendors pay a space fee and a commission to St. John’s School. Most of our spaces are approximately 8’ x 8’. All vendors are required to have a seller’s permit from the California State Board of Equalization and are responsible for collecting and reporting any applicable sales tax.
In late April applications are mailed to those crafters for whom we have space. Others are informed their information is being placed in a file of vendors to call if another crafter opts not to participate in our next show which will be held the first weekend in December each year.
Though we see many very nice crafts, we are unable to accept everyone who would like to participate. We try very hard to have a variety of crafts and not to have many duplicates. Our selections often depend upon the location of booth openings.
For further information, please call St. John’s School: 916-481-8845, ext 216. Thank you for your interest in our Holiday Show of Hands.
