The information provided below provides details of the event. .

Dates/Times: Christmas in the Forest 2018 is scheduled for:

Friday, November 2, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturday, November 3 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Setup Dates: Setup date for Christmas in the Forest 2018:

Thursday, November 1, 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Merchandise: We only accept homemade/handmade crafts not items that have been purchased for resale. Independent dealers of commercial products are not accepted. Be sure to list all items you intend to sell and include photos of your work. We try to avoid overlapping categories, although we always have several types of jewelry.

Selection Process: We are making the selection process more formal this year. Applications will be judged on the basis of quality and originality, as well as suitability and variety for our show. We will notify you within two weeks as to whether your application has been accepted.

Entry fee and commission rate: The entry fee has become necessary due to a number of last-minute cancellations in past years and will become due as soon as your application is accepted. As long as you sell at least $150 worth of merchandise, the $50 entry fee will only cost you $20, since the balance is applied to commissions owed. We are planning to increase our advertising so that you will have more customers, and also we feel that by improving the overall quality of merchandise available, your merchandise will be seen in a more attractive overall setting.

Lunch passes: Each booth will receive two lunch passes to be used during the event. Since we offer lunch for customers, please plan to visit the “café” at non-peak times (from 11:00 to 11:45 a.m. or after 1:30 p.m.).

Vendor Tables: The church has a limited number of 6-ft. and 8-ft. tables available. Please let us know if you will want one and specify which size. We have available 18 indoor booths and 5 outdoor booths under a covered walkway.

Spaces will be rearranged: Vendor locations will be decided purposefully by the committee, making every effort to fit each vendor to a space according to what is to be sold and to make the layout attractive to buyers and sellers. If you have specific needs, such as electrical outlet, solid or glass wall, near a window please let us know.

Set-up: Set up will be Thursday afternoon from 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Please use the back door. Some vendors with little to set up may do so early on Friday morning; the Parish Hall will be open at 7:00 a.m. on Friday. Please have your booth ready no later than 8:30 on Friday morning.

Clean up: We ask that all vendors pack up promptly beginning at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday. Church members will need to move all furniture back in place and must wait for vendors to pack up first. If you would like to shop at other vendors’ tables, please do so earlier in the event to avoid delaying the end of the event. Also, please do not pack up prior to 3:00 p.m.

Please contact us right away with any questions to avoid last minute misunderstandings. You can contact us by calling the church office, contacting Crissie Lewis at 919-734-8866 or by sending an e-mail to: CITFVendors@yahoo.com
