Holiday Market 2017

As one of benefits of being a member, Guild member could bring handmade item, not limited to clay to sell at Holiday Market.

Be available for set up at 1:45pm and we will sell until 4:30pm. 10% of sale will be donated to the Avondale Estates First Baptist Church for the space.

Each member selling is completely responsible for display, handling their own sales, including making change and watching over your merchandise.

And if you don't want to sell, check out the meeting program here or bring your clay and play with whatever you want to do. So you can work, sell, shop or socialize.

!!Bead Bonanza!! ~ Bead Jar

What is the Bead Jar you ask?
Bring your extra beads, handmade or purchased, and put them in the Bead Jar that will be present at all of our guild meetings.
Bead Jar[s] will be auctioned off in our silent auctions.

Ok, so you made 12 beads for your latest project but you ended up needing only 9. Why not put the 3 extra beads in GAPCG's Bead Jar? If we all participate and contribute our spare, unwanted beads, the winner of the Bead Jar will go home with a true !!Bead Bonanza!! So bring those extra beads [don't have to be Polymer Clay] and put them in the Bead Jar to help the guild raise money at the Silent Auctions ~ April and October.

We accept any number of beads for the Bead Jar all year round!
