Calling All Bead Vendors and Jewelry Artisans Who Like Air-Conditioned Shows in August ...

Consider selling your wares at the Austin Bead Society's (ABS) Annual Jewelry and Bead Bazaar. The show is centrally located at the Palmer Events Center, in the heart of Austin on Barton Springs Rd.  Shoppers will enjoy covered parking.  Vendors have easy load-in via a ramped loading dock and large dollies.

This is ABS' second year at Palmer in August, after many years at Murchison Middle School and several years at the Crockett Center.  This show has a fun, indie vibe.  It is put on entirely by hard-working ABS volunteers.  Many of the vendors (including yours truly) have done the show a long time.  (I think this will be my 10th year.)

Here is the basic scoop. 
Application deadline: April 1, 2011 
What you can sell (see rules for more explanation):  beads, jewelry supplies, jewelry tools or your hand-crafted jewelry 
Event hours: Aug. 13, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m and Aug. 14, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m
Set-up hours: Aug. 12, noon to 8:00 p.m. and Aug. 13, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Location: Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs Rd., Austin TX
Space fees: from $80 (member's artisan table) to $1,600 (20' x 20' booth)

The City-Wide Garage Sale, always a favorite of vintage goods collectors, will be at Palmer the same weekend.
