The Folk Art & Artisans Show is a juried show, and unfortunately we cannot accept all prospective vendors. We carefully consider the number of entries in each category of items for sale, and we try very hard to provide spaces both for successful past vendors and exceptional new vendors. As such, we cannot guarantee a spot to all past vendors. Thank you for your understanding.

Rental fee for one space is $160. Spaces will be available in three buildings: Francis, Museum/Emporium, and Miller, as well as outside. Please do not submit payment until you have been notified of acceptance.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need a tax ID number if I’m a resident of RI/my business resides in RI?
Yes. All vendors must have a tax ID number since sales will be made in MA.

What is the size of my space?
In general, spaces are 10’x 8′. Because of our unique venue, some spaces may be slightly different (e.g. 11′ x 7′), but we will notify you of this when you receive your space assignment. We will make every effort to match you with a space suitable to your needs.

What is the cost of a space?
Each space costs $160.

Are half spaces available?
There are a very limited number of half spaces available. Please indicate in your application under “Additional Comments” that you are interested in a half space. The fee for a half space is $80.

What is the process for setting up at the Show?
Vendors are allowed to set up on Friday afternoon from noon – 4PM. Vendors will not be admitted until noon. We strictly enforce this rule to allow volunteers time to prepare the venue for vendors. Spaces must be tended by the vendor at all times.

What is the process for packing up at the end of the Show?
We ask that vendors wait until 4PM on Saturday to begin packing up their booth. Please take with you all used packaging and display materials when you leave.

What supplies should I bring to the Show?
Vendors must supply your own table, chairs, and extension cords. All tables must be covered to the floor and extra stock kept out of sight.

What kinds of items may I sell?
All items must be made by the vendor, i.e. no kits or ready-made items. All items must be priced.

May I run a raffle at my booth?
The Carpenter Museum runs a licensed raffle in Francis, but individual vendors may not run their own raffle.

Is Wi-Fi available?
Francis Farm makes Wi-Fi available to vendors in the Francis and Miller buildings. There is no Wi-Fi available in the Emporium/Museum building.
