*NEW* Pop Up Artisan Collective

In conjunction with the annual Holiday Gift Boutique, EEA is offering additional artisan/vendor space in the historic Fresh Pond School House – a recently renovated, charming one room school house located on the grounds of EEA. This is an opportunity to showcase work and sell directly to holiday shoppers in a more intimate setting. The school house can accommodate only 7 artisans on Saturdays and Sundays during the Holiday Gift Boutique (November 11 through December 23, Saturdays and Sundays from 12 noon to 5pm).

EEA will provide six-foot draped tables in assigned spots within the school house. Each artisan will be responsible for their own sales, sales tax collection, etc. The fee for each six-foot table is $40 per day. No additional commissions or fees will be taken by EEA for sales in this building. Artisan vendors who book four or more days at the same time will receive a 10% discount on the booking fees.
