Chewelah Artist Co-Op Vendor Orientation
After a successful virtual holiday craft fair, the Chewelah Artist Co-Op has decided to do it again. This time we’re going big! We also have time to do a proper Vendor Orientation. Keep reading to learn more about that. The Pop-Up Shop will be open online from March 22 – June 30. That is 14 weeks including Easter, May Day, Mother’s Day, Graduation, Wedding Season, Flag Day, Father’s Day and Independence Day. The Vendor Orientation is scheduled for March 5, 2021 at 5:30pm. It will be a virtual meeting held on Zoom. This session is for anyone who is considering selling in the Chewelah Artist Co-Op’s 2021 Online Pop-Up Shop.
Register for the orientation session here. We’ll be sending a recording of the session to everyone who registers.

During Vendor Orientation, we’ll be discussing the kinds of things we’d love to see in the shop & how to place your work in the pop-up shop. We’ll also go into more detail about how it all works, give you some tips for getting the most out of this event, let you know some ways you can help us with promotion, and (importantly) how/when you’ll get paid for your sales.

This last year has been tough on creatives of all kinds. Our goal is to create innovative opportunities for Chewelah’s creatives to showcase their work and make money during these challenging times. The Chewelah Artist Co-Op is a collaborative project between the Chewelah Arts Guild, Chewelah Creative District, Chewelah Chamber of Commerce, Chewelah Farmer’s Market, and the NEW Creators’ Workshop. Technical solutions and support are provided by Mindmeld Creative.
