Stanly Arts Guild 2024 Spring Craft Show

April 17 - June 8

About this show: This show is open to all vendors/crafters that make & sell items for use in inside & outside garden areas, porches, decks, etc., for decoration and/or functional use. All items must be handcrafted or handmade. No kit or resale items will be allowed.
Location and Hours: The show will be staged in the sales area of the Stanly Arts Guild store, located at 330-C N Second Street, Albemarle, NC. Current normal store hours apply: Wednesday, 12-4, Thursday 11-6, Friday 11-6, & Saturday 10-2.

The show/sale will be in place for a total of 8 weeks. The volunteers of the Stanly Arts Guild that work in the store each day will handle sales for all vendors during the show. The Stanly Arts Guild will also collect & remit state & county taxes for all sales.

Booth Sizes & Fees: Booth sizes will be 4’x2’. Vendors may request multiple booths and must designate if they need them together or prefer for them to be separate. Booth fees are listed below:
• Stanly Arts Guild members = $40 for a 4’x2’ booth ($5 per week)
• Non-members = $60 for a 4’x2’ booth ($7.50 per week) (Become a Guild member for $20 for the rest of our 22-23 fiscal year, thru June 30th, & only pay $40 booth rental = $60 Total. Also, commissions on all sales will be 15% vs. 30% for non-members.)

Vendors will be responsible for providing their own tables/booth furniture. Space is limited so vendors need to make sure their booth is no larger than the 4’x2’ previously specified. Use of risers and elevation changes is encouraged to enhance the appearance of your display. If lighting is desired or required vendors will need to contact the store director, Wendy Hillhouse, to discuss. Any approved lighting will need to be plugged into a surge protector & may need to be secured to the floor to prevent trip hazards. Access to receptacles is limited & will be provided on a first come, first served basis, so contact the store director as soon as possible to arrange lighting. (Store Director – Wendy Hillhouse – mobile # – call or text – 704-985-0855.)

Artist’s payment: The Guild will remit payment of all sales to the artist, less 15% commission for Guild members or 30% commission for non-members, by May 15th, 2024, for April sales, by June 15th, 2024, for May sales and by July 15th, 2024, for June sales.

Inventory: The Guild will provide each vendor with inventory sheets and an artist number, (unless the vendor already has an artist number). The artist number, the item number and price must be on all items on a removable tag. All items must be listed on inventory sheet(s). The Guild store volunteers will handle all sales and will update your inventory list. Guild members will be at the Guild store on set up days to assist each vendor with this process.

Items and Jury Instructions: Due to the potentially high volume of participants, this will be a juried show. When you bring your vendor application to the Guild, please bring at least 2-3 pictures of the items you will be selling, to be approved or send them via email to If you plan to sell multiple types of items, (for example birdhouses, bird baths, butterfly houses, etc.), be sure to provide examples of the different items in your pictures. Items brought in for sale will still be subject to review as pictures do not always depict the true nature of the product. If any product is deemed inappropriate or not meeting the criteria for participation, the vendor will be asked to remove the item(s) and not include them in their sales booth for the duration of the sale.
