Special Requests

Power
Power access is limited. If you requested power please bring lengthly extension cords, a power bar, and duck tape to secure cords to the floor or wall. Vendors will have to share the few outlets available. Please be considerate to others, and accommodate everyone's needs. Please prepare for a no power location. Power access location is distributed first registered first served, and you will not be notified once it's sold out. 

Table Location (wall requests)
Tables are assigned & will be labeled with your name. I've done my best to accommodate your requests. The table layout is designed to fit many vendors and the space is quite restricted. Please be flexible with your table set-up plans/visions, and be kind to your neighbours.

NO Concession Stand - There will be NO concession stand at this fair. The FCYG has supported the craft fair for over 20 years, and Griz Days was their last event with Fernie Craft Fairs. I’ll be looking for a new non-profit to support if you have any ideas.


Stand Out
Think of unique ways to make your space stand out! Fresh Spring themed decor, battery powered LED fairy lights, colourful table cloths, cut flowers & greenery, clear pricing and signage are a few ideas. (Remember - you're in sales. What?! ;) Remind our guests that Mother’s Day is next weekend.

Be Your Best
Smile all day long...be open to offers...drink water, lots of water! (You may consider bringing your own re-usable water bottle) Love thy neighbour. Get to know your visitors...take the time. Let the Fernie Community Craft Fair be known for the 'Community'...more than the' Craft Fair!' Thank you and HAVE FUN!

Can You Say Social Media?
The Spring Craft Fair Facebook Event is live. Join the event, and invite all your friends & followers. Post in the discussion of the event page with photos of some of the items you're showcasing at the fairs. Be sure to tell your followers that you are attending. Share the event to your personal profile, as well as your Business Page. Post the event page to any FB groups you belong to. (Be sure to check group guidelines before posting) Offer a special deal for mentioning your FB post or tell people about a special you're offering exclusively to Craft Fair visitors. Engaging with folks ahead of time will elevate your presence at the event.
