This may just be the BEST Art & Craft Swap Meet you have ever been to or been involved in!!!!!

Hello to all creative souls,

We hope that you had a fabulous Winter Season and some well deserved rest.
We would like to let you know that we are hosting a Spring Market this year at Sullivan Hall on April 2nd.facebook-banner-cf-spring-fling-2017

This market will focus on helping you clear your study/work space out of the supplies that have been piling up around you that you no longer need. This could also include displays that no longer work with your current product or vision/showcase.
Get your de-STASH on!

Time to spring clean whatever environment you call your “studio” and make a little cash!
Haul out any new and gently used art supplies you don’t want anymore and set up a table or a tent and purge that clutter!

Vendors are allowed to sell any supplies/display items that can be used in a creative world. The list is almost endless . 🙂
Examples of GOOD items to bring:
~ Paint/paint brushes
~ New/reusable canvas
~ Art paper pads (sketch, watercolor, bristol etc)
~ Pens/Markers/Colored Pencils
~ Sculpting/Pottery tools
~ Jewelry making tools
~ Easels
~ Photography equipment
~ Jars/cigar boxes/tins
~ books/magazines
~ scrapbooking/papercrafting supplies
~ ribbon/fabric/Tees for up cycling
~ sewing/needlecraft supplies
~ woodworking supplies
~ frames/hanging supplies
~ Studio equipment/furniture/storage
~ Ephemera: trinkets and doodads
~ Music instruments/supplies/sheet music

Examples of NOT SO GOOD stuff:
~ Completed artwork (some is fine, but remember, this is not an art sale)
~ Retail items at retail price
~ anything not art or craft related.

This may just be the BEST Art & Craft Swap Meet you have ever been to or been involved in!!!!!

It’s CONTEST TIME here at Creative Finds Events!


This is your chance to win one of two Creative Finds Events Winter Market $25.00 Gift Certificates to be used at any of our C.F.E. vendor tables this weekend only (Nov 15 & 16 2014 between 10am & 4pm)!

The certificates cannot be traded for cash. You hand them the $25 gift certificate as payment and then they turn it in to a C.F.E. staff member to be reimbursed the $25. The $25 certificate will be treated like cash. Therefore if change is due to the customer, the vendor will give them their change in cash.

How do you play:
All you have to do is visit our Creative Finds Events facebook page, share the event photo, invite your local family & friends or spread the word in other festive & happy ways.  Have them VISIT the facebook page and just do two quick things:

1. LIKE the PAGE …… Not the post,… but the PAGE itself! 🙂
2. Type the first & last name of the person that sent you (on the pinned contest image facebook thread) so that their name is ‘tagged’.

The winners will be the two people with their names tagged the most by Thursday evening Nov 13th at 9pm pst!

Remember BOTH steps must happen to have the vote count! Once the person tags the name of the one person that sent them to the CFE facebook page, they can go ahead and invite people for themselves, Ready, set… GO!

Contest ends NOVEMBER 13, 2014 at 9pm pst sharp (This contest must have minimum 15 entries to draw a winner).
