For those of you who participated last summer, I still have your vendor applications on file, so no need to do another, unless you are offering something different. For those of you who will be new vendors to the market, please complete the application on our website and MAIL it in, with the $5.00 application fee SOON. That form and all info is at www.marblemountcommunitymarket.org/events. And please tell your friends!
I am also seeking local musicians to play and/or sing for an hour or 2 at each market, so spread the word and have any and all get in touch with me: 853-8388 (home), or firstname.lastname@example.org (Corina, Auburn: how about some KIDS???) Unfortunately, there's no budget to pay anyone yet, but you can set out a basket for donations. And, of course, it's great exposure for your music/poetry/etc.
REMINDER - 2014 Market dates are as follows:
(2nd Sundays, noon to 4:00-ish)
June 8 (includes Community Yard Sale!)
July 13August 10
Sept. 14 (includes Community Harvest Share!)
And remember, if you have small items, or not alot of items (like your cds or books), you are welcome to split a $10 table with someone, but you need to work that out among yourselves. (But if you are that Market's entertainer/performer, there is no fee for selling your music or writings that day - just set up on the card table by the "stage" canopy, provided)
Setting up starts around 10:30 or 11am and whomever is there first, gets first dibs on their canopy site. Market OPENS for business at noon.
I got some really spiffy new signs made this winter, as well as a little bit of Market bling to sell: MCM canvas shopping bags, fridge magnets, and t-shirts! Also some postcard flyers to post on bulletin boards all over tarnation, so look for them hither and yon and let me know where they are still needed (picture of the MCM little red wagon with veggies in it). I'm going to hit the campgrounds heavy, as well as the Methow, with those this year.
Concerning the first Market, Yard Sale vendors will be asked to set up back in the ball field, and the Market vendors proper will still be out front on the grass between the Hall and the road. Community Hall members (Vanessa, Pat, Shana, and ?) will once again organize and staff each Bake Sale, but I'm still seeking a dedicated FOOD VENDOR (sandwiches, beverages, etc.). Once again, if you know of someone interested and permitted, please have them contact me asap!
And lastly, the Marblemount Community Hall's annual meeting, open house, and potluck is THIS Tuesday, May 13th from 6:00-8:00 pm - come see what's planned for 2014, bring your thoughts and suggestions, and get involved - we need you!!! Thanks, friends. Hope to see, or hear, from you soon.Blessings,Christie
P.S.: PLEASE remember that vendor applications must be received, and approved, in advance of the Market! I need to know how many vendors to expect, jury the arts/crafts, and prevent duplication of goods/services. Thanks again.
