Dear Returning Artisan:

We welcome you once again to the Lovell Arts and Artisans Fair, now in its 44th year, on Saturday, August 17th. This event is a major fundraiser for the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library, and we appreciate your participation. 

Please return the Accepted Artist Agreement and a non-refundable Exhibitor’s Fee of $50.00 by July 1st, so that we can reserve the space you request.  We will do our best to accommodate your needs, but can’t guarantee the space you request will be available.  We will honor your request to be indoors or outdoors.  If it looks like rain the morning of the show, you may choose to go indoors.  We will find a space for you.  It will be a final decision.

We may not be able to fill your request for electricity, so please come prepared for either scenario and bring your own electrical cord.  If you request hallway space, you will be guaranteed electricity.

You are responsible for providing your own exhibit stand/booth/table.  Only items that have been juried may be brought for exhibition and sale.

The school doors will be unlocked at 6:30 a.m. for your arrival and set-up.  We provide a team of workers to help unload your vehicle and move your display items to your assigned space.  Complimentary coffee and snacks will be available for exhibitors until 9:00 a.m. in the gym.  We will be offering lunch in the cafeteria. If you wish, you can order lunch from a runner soon after the Fair opens, and it will be delivered to you around noon.

Cash out at the end of the day will take place in the Art Room (the first room in the hallway on the left after exiting the gym).  A donation of (See below as our policy has changed.) will be deducted from the amount of your gross sales at that time. 

Any artisan who donates an item(s) to the raffle table with a minimum value of $50 will have 10% of their total sales deducted. Any artisan who chooses not to donate an item(s), or whose donation does not meet the $50 minimum, will be charged 15%. All donated items will be accepted for the raffle.
