Handmade Idaho event at El Korah
Handmade Idaho's 2021 Holiday event at El Korah will be November 20th & 21st with special preview night on Friday November 19th.
How does the Holiday event at El Korah work?
Fill out the application, send us all the pretty pictures (clear and sharp photos are best!), we love local artisan goods! We will send you an email by mid September (accepted or not!) so be sure to be watching. Then pay your non refundable booth fee to secure your spot. Before the event we will send out your booth number and the map. On set up day you will set up your own booth, you will need to bring your own tables/displays/etc. You may not hang items on the walls, all displays need to be free standing. Artists are responsible for all sales in their booth, bring extra change, way to process credit cards etc!
How do you decide who to accept?
We jury all completed applications, our criteria include originality of product, creativity, etc. We want to offer our customers variety! Pictures are a huge deal - be sure to send us clear, nice photos!
What do I get for my booth fee?
Booth fees cover our rent, advertising, administration costs etc. Every accepted vendor gets an introduction post on social media (we do about one a day every day up to the event!), make sure the product photos you submit are your best, those are what we will use in your post! Your booth space is an empty canvas! You will need to bring all you displays, merchandise etc! Please note all display pieces must be free standing.
We strongly recommend each vendor consider having there own insurance, Handmade Idaho, LLC will not be responsible for any loss, theft, injury or damages.
