The deadline for buying a booth at Gathering of the Guilds has been extended to March 31st, with no late fee. However March 31st is a firm date because we have to commit to the space or yield it to the other guilds.
For members who are new to selling their work the Group Booth for $125 is a great deal. Each participant gets half an 8′ table to display their glass for sale. Yes, you can go vertically. The table, lights, and ability to take credit cards are all included in the $125 (you will need to pay the credit card company fee on any sales, and you will owe a commission to the Guild as well). Participants take shifts and work a common till so you don’t even have to be present all the hours of all 3 days.
The prices for the 10×10 booths range from $400 to $475 depending on their location, and the 5×10 booth prices range from $250 to $350 depending on location. Note that all sales are subject to a variable commission rate depending on the number of volunteer hours worked by the artist or by anyone who works volunteer hours on behalf of the artist.
Also note the Covid-19 policy for the show has been revised:
• We are following CDC recommendations for Multnomah County at this time – “People may choose to wear a mask. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.”
• Some of our artists are vulnerable and will require you to wear a mask in their booth; please be prepared to wear one.
• A mask mandate will be in effect on Sunday morning, May 8th from 10am – 12am for both artists and attendees, providing our high-risk and immunocompromised attendees a safer experience.
