RETAIL: CHEAP JOE'S EMPLOYEE AND SMALL GIFTS SHOW
This is for a retail sales experience. Cheap Joe's handles all sales, commission check will be mailed after the show. Every year, Cheap Joe's Art Stuff hosts a very successful Employee's, Art Show. This year, CJAS has invited us to join their show, with a small holiday gift sale. We are seeking handmade items that would make good gifts. Think, traveling on a plane or stocking stuffers. We are accepting applications for artists who have items that are: items smaller than 12"x12"x12"x12", less than $200, retail setting, 40/60 commission split of all sales at the end of the show (40% Arts Council/60% Artist). Submissions due November 3 or 4th at the latest. You WILL be notified if your work is selected. You would need to drop artwork off by November 6th. All work is sold through Cheap Joe's merchant system. We have an inventory form we will expect you to fill out. The artist is not expected to be on site for sales or set up.
I would like to participate Cheap Joe's Small Gifts and Employees Holiday Sale in November 13-December 18th.

ARTIST MARKETS: DOWNTOWN POP-UP
This is for an art market experience where you set up and manage your own artist booth. This is an indoor venue on King Street, Downtown Boone. 585 W. King Street is now acting as a satellite location for the Arts Council. It is much larger than our Blue Ridge Art Space and allows us to capture a larger audience. We would like to offer artists an opportunity to sell their work during the busy holiday weekends in downtown Boone. Due to COVID, we are still working out details of if we will be able to rent booth spaces or if we need to offer a retail location but we need to start accepting applications in order to get this ball rolling. Artist Booth Rental is $75 for the weekend unless you agree to help volunteer to "man the space" as well. Please pick your preferred date(s) (may rent on all three weekends - selection of dates does not guarantee placement but helps us to plan). We will be in contact if you are chosen. If you are choose to rent a booth space on consecutive weekends you will not be required to break down between markets events.
I would like to participate in a Holiday Market Downtown Boone. These are the dates I have interest in:
