SFFCCSP Festival of Lights

sffccspfestivaloflightsWe have heard about a possible craft vendors opportunity during the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park’s Festival of Lights in December. We wanted to tell everyone about it so that you could contact the park’s Gift Shop Manager about setting up a tent in the craft village for the month or even better if you have a cute little “Shop on Wheels” they may let you set up there. We spoke to the previous manager about it when we were volunteering there year before last. They did have two vendors set up on the sidewalk outside the gift shop main entrance last year. This event draws literally thousands and thousands of people from as far away as South Florida and North Georgia every single year.

Vintage Trailer Short Term Campaign

bonfiretshirtfrontSince we really need a mobile retail shop to house our vast supply of handcrafted items we have created over the last couple of years we are going to run a T-Shirt Campaign to get some initial funding to buy a used vintage trailer and convert it to a mobile retail shop to use while we are gathering the funding for our brand new replica 1961 Holiday House Travel Trailer Mobile Retail Shop. Once we purchase the vintage travel trailer, remake it into a mobile store and use it a few months we may be able to offer it as a reward for our main campaign or even rent it out for local craft businesses in North Florida and Southern Georgia to use at their own craft vending opportunities.

CellphoneBags-71-CopyNorth Florida Crafts Vending opportunities may seem few and far between as there is no real resource for us to get that information. We have joined the No White Tent forum to find new opportunities for us crafts vendors but their is mostly events listed in the southern part of the state. Since we have been in the St. Augustine, Florida area for the last several months we have been collecting information about this area and places where craft vendors can go. Some of these are listed below and include information about the application process, what they are looking for and whom to contact. We hope you will find this information useful and if you know of any more in the North Florida area please post a comment below so we can add them to our listing.

Shops on Wheels

Holidayhouse6Shops on Wheels has been a new promotional tool for us hand craft artists to sell our wares at craft shows, festivals and flea markets. We have a page that discusses our plans for turning a Holiday House Travel Trailer into a mobile retail shop to house all of our handcrafted items we create and to sell from at Florida festivals, crafts shows and farmer’s markets. Please check out our information page at: http://southernwomencrafts.com/latest-promos/holiday-house-mobile-boutique/

We have created a forum discussion board ( http://shopsonwheels.yuku.com/ ) to gather information from those who already have vintage travel trailers and have converted them into mobile retail shops and those who would like to. Because our vintage travel trailer idea is fairly unique and there are only about 10 or so left we have been looking for a vintage travel trailer replica manufacturer to create one for us. Most vintage trailer enthusiasts and renovators insists that these old-timers be brought back to their original design and used as campers. Continue reading “Shops on Wheels”
