APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN FOR HOLIDAY 2016!

We are now accepting vendor applications for the EIGHTH annual PDCM Holiday Crafterino! This year's show will be held Sunday, November 27th from 11am to 4pm at Petaluma Veterans Memorial Building. For the past seven years our holiday shows have been wonderfully successful with very happy vendors and shoppers and we are looking forward to an even bigger turnout this year! This year we return to the beautiful Petaluma Veterans Memorial Building!

Crafterino is also a major fundraiser for COTS – The Committee on the Shelterless. COTS provides meals and beds for people in need in the Petaluma area. To date we have raised over $10,000 for COTS and we continue to support them by donating all raffle ticket sales and door fees to them.

Since we get many more applications than we have available spaces, this event is juried. We carefully make sure that we have a variety of products that are original, well made and appealing to our customers. All items must be handmade. No imports!

Booths can be shared by a maximum of 2 vendors. The booths are 10' wide by 6' deep and includes an 8' foot table and 2 chairs. If sharing a space, fill out one application for the whole booth with info on all vendors who will be participating but designate one person as the main contact.

It is $175 to apply. Vendors must donate either 25 pieces of swag to our popular swag bags that are given away to the first 100 shoppers in the door or an item to our raffle with a minimum retail value of $50. Once we receive your swag items or raffle item then you will be refunded $50 so the booth spaces are $125. If you choose not to participate in the swag bags or raffle then your booth price is $175.
Electricity is available for an additional $25 fee. Please pay for electricity together with your booth fee. Please let us know if you need electricity and we will make sure to place you near an outlet.
If you are not accepted into the show then your fee will be refunded when notifications go out. You may pay your booth fees through PayPal. Our PayPal address is petalumadowntowncraftmart@gmail.com. If you don't have a PayPal account you can use a credit card through PayPal. It is safe and secure. Once you have been accepted, booth fees are non-refundable.

Application deadline is Friday, October 7th at midnight. Acceptance emails will be sent on Monday, October 10th.  
All swag items and raffle items are due on Friday, November 18th. The swag bags and raffle are one of the most popular parts of our show and bring in a huge crowd of shoppers. Event goes on rain or shine. There will be no refunds for inclement weather.
