Welcome to the 2019 Holiday Market!!
Thanks to Barry Familetto of Stetson Management & Development LLC, we will once again be hosting Holiday Market at the 29 Hudson Road location.
We hope to have our first organizational meeting next week. We will choose a date that works for the most people.
Please plan to attend this very important meeting!

Holiday Market 2019 Registration Fee: $175
Please Pay by October 15
*Our goal is a break even event. If there is a left over balance in our Holiday Market budget after the show is finished, it will be put toward improving the event in the future.
If you are a member and interested in participating, please read the following guidelines:
You must be an SAA member (membership does not guarantee acceptance)
All work must be handmade by the artist. Resale is not permitted
Prior participation does not guarantee entry
This is a cooperative event and the SAA does not take a commission on the sales of the Holiday Market. Artists are expected to run the market for a required number of 4 hour-shifts (past years have been 4-6 shifts/artist). Artists are expected to arrive 15 minutes prior to their shift.
Artists are expected to volunteer for various duties to help HM run smoothly (jobs may include setup, taken down, decorations, marketing….) If an artist does not volunteer, a duty will be assigned to you.
All artists must understand that we are dependent on the space we find. We may not have control over the length of time the space is available to us, any added costs associated with that space, or the size of the space. These factors may effect how many artists can participate as well as the cost of participating.
Artists are expected to setup their displays during the designated setup time, keep their space stocked and neat throughout HM, and to remove all belongings and debris during the breakdown time. If an artist is participating in other shows during this time, the artist’s HM space must remain stocked.
All artists must provide 5 current photos of their work including a display or mock display of your setup. These photos will be used for advertising and promotion of HM.
All artists are expected to help advertise and spread the word about the event - and not just about the artist’s own work, but sharing the work of fellow SAA artists. (We will have postcards, yard signs, social media postings to distribute) Providing video is a plus!
Artists must agree to attend 1 training class to learn the check out process, multiple sessions are offered.
Communication is a MUST for this to run smoothly! Artists must agree to check and respond to emails in a timely manner (within 24 hours)
The night before we open, artists must attend a “pizza party”/reception to finish last minute touches, meet other artists, and to learn about their work. The more we know about each other’s work, the better we’ll be able to promote it as well as answer customer’s questions!
