Second Annual Kid’s Day at Market!
September 3, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Calling all creative kids and young entrepreneurs! We are looking for some interested young vendors for our Second Annual Kid’s Day on September 3. Does your child or grandchild paint, draw, sculpt or take photos? Do they weave bracelets or jewelry or make mosaic tiles or do paper mache? Maybe they press flowers and make their own greeting cards or stationary or make dog toys out of old fabrics? Whatever it is, we would like to have them as vendors at the Kid’s Day market, from 8a-12p. This market experience is geared towards kids 8-12 years old and our hope is that it teaches kids a little bit about how to handle money and make change, how to interact with the public, how to market their product or business, how to run a credit card, what it means to support a local economy (vs. going to a big box store), etc.
Each child must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times, and the child has to make or grow it themselves (no reselling of store bought merchandise). Products are limited to non-food, craft-type products (no baked goods, no vegetables from your garden, no lemonade stands, etc.) In addition, we will need a signed permission slip from each vendor so that they understand the rules and regulations of the market (within reason) and we will need an RSVP from you so we know you are coming. You’ll need your own tables and marketing materials, and you are welcome to bring a tent if you feel you need one (tent must have tent weights for each leg).
If you and your child(ren) are interested in being a part of this event, or you have questions or need more information, please send an email directly to the market manager at firstname.lastname@example.org and please type “interested child vendor” in the subject line. Please do NOT send a message through Facebook!!
Our hope is that the next generation of market vendors and shoppers is being raised right before our eyes and will carry the market tradition forward! Tell them to get cracking on their creations so they have enough to sell at market in a few weeks!
We look forward to hearing from you!By:
