2019 RUTH WELLS CENTER FOR THE ARTS HOLIDAY ARTS & CRAFTS SALE:
Hello, All You Happy Artisans!
The Ruth Wells Center for the Arts will once again be holding its HOLIDAY ARTS AND CRAFTS SALE and we do hope that you will be able to participate! This year we are changing our schedule from three days to 2 days.
This year’s dates are as follows:
Saturday, November 16: 10am - 4pm and Sunday, November 17: 11am - 4pm

Sunday, November 15 from 4pm to 7pm
As always, we will be happy to work with you and your schedule.
As per last year, we are asking each artisan to donate one piece, the full price of which, if sold, will go to the Arts Center to help defray the cost of advertising. Otherwise, the terms are as usual – you will receive 85% of your sales if you gallery sit for at least 4 hours during the sale, 75% if you do not.
Please let us know by email, text or phone, if you are planning to be with us BY THURSDAY NOVEMBER 7 so we can reserve a spot. Please let us also know if you need a table or wall space.
Attached is the paperwork; please read it carefully, print it out, fill it out, and bring it with you when you come to set up.
Thanks and looking forward to seeing you this November!
