Signup is easy
Vendors who have not previously participated in an SIU craft show should submit for review prior to sending the payment for booth rental five images of the work they plan to display and sell. Submit the images via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any vendor who has participated in a show within the past five years does not need to send images.
Organizers encourage craftspeople and vendors to sign up early to secure a spot for the popular sales, which typically draw visitors from a wide area.
