Holiday Fair Artisan Information
With the days getting shorter and the cold winds blowing, we are eagerly anticipating another beautiful and festive Holiday Fair to warm our spirits. Thank you for your interest in offering your work for sale at our fair. We are no longer accepting applications for the 2012 Holiday Fair.
As a reminder, we cannot accept all previous artisans as we try to add variety to the fair each year. An additional way to enliven the artisan booths is to move artisans to new spaces from time to time. If you are not joining us this year, please consider applying in the coming summer or fall for next year's fair.
We are excited to have all Artisans be a part of a wonderful transformation at Pine Hill, and our volunteers will turn the school into a magical Holiday event. Please keep in mind that we are not a professional Fair Venue, but a school with volunteers who are doing their best to accommodate you in every way possible. We appreciate your participation and hope you will have a very successful Fair.
This page contains everything you need for smooth operation on the day of the fair. If you have further questions, please contact Sandy Ziele at Sandy@twillnh.com or Saundra Carbery at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your plans have changed and you cannot attend the Friday night portion or the entire event, please let us know ASAP so we can try to fill your space. If we can not fill your space, your booth fee will be forfeited.

The school will be open for you to unload and set up your booth on Friday, November 30th from 3:30 pm- 6pm and on Saturday, December 1st from 8:00 am - 9:30 am. It is essential that you unload fully and then move your vehicle to allow other exhibitors access for unloading as well. People with booths toward the right of the auditorium should plan to load in at the stage door, all other exhibitors will use the main entrance for load-in. Volunteers will be on hand to help direct you to the appropriate door and to vendor parking after you have unloaded your vehicle. you may leave your booth set up overnight, at your own risk. We will secure the building Friday night. All cars must be moved from the loading areas by 6pm on Friday and 9:30am on Saturday. We appreciate your assistance in this matter.
The Booth space at the Fair varies and does not come with any standard furniture. Therefore, needed materials include your own table and or display and your own chair. You are responsible for leaving your booth clean, so please bring a bag along for trash. If you have requested electricity, we have tried to accommodate you. Booths located along the auditorium walls, in the hallway and in the classroom have electrical access. Please bring a heavy-duty extension cord. Each exhibitor who has electricity will have one outlet. We are trying to balance the significant electrical needs of the Holiday Fair with the capacity of the school building, so we ask that you limit yourself to 2-3 lights.
Booth placement (Where is my booth?)
Please refer to the link below to the maps showing the booth locations and dimensions. Booth sizes are fairly irregular. Booths in the center of the auditorium have a 6 inch step located at the heavy line marked on the map. We suggest bringing blocks or bricks to adjust your booth set up if needed. We have done our best to take into account each of your needs for space, electicity and access, and appreciate your patience and understanding in coping with our uniquely shaped building.
