Wow. I had no idea this thread was back in action... Back when I originally wanted to do it (hi, I'm the person who started this thread), only one person msgd (yardenxanthe) saying they would help out & then she said she couldn't (and now she moved away, I think).... so it just never really went anywhere.

But I'm back now & would love (x10000) to do this.

I set up a temporary website for craft fair plans to be posted on my domain at: http://www.prettyinprint.net/craftfair.html

Once a name has been selected, I will get the domain and set up the official site (for anyone, not just planning info).

So, anyone interested in helping plan/work this thing? I certainly cannot do it by myself, but I would love to see it happen.

Email me at sarah at prettyinprint dot net to let me know you're interested in helping... I will send out a group email to whoever volunteers and we can start discussing.

On the stationary package, I have made envelopes out of magazine pages, but are you putting in a glue stick to seal them or something else, because I always had to glue mine. Thanks for the info and the inspiration!

Here's a recipe I have for homemade envelope glue (came with envelope templates):
Mix one part white vinegar, one part white glue, and one drop of peppermint flavoring. Brush on the back of the envelope flap and allow to dry. When ready to use, just lick and stick.

Okay, so... I've been looking around & this is what I've come up with so far: 

It seems like somewhere between $30-70 is a good fee for a first time event (assuming enough vendors sign up)... should be just enough to cover all of the expenses of organizing it (location, advertising, etc)...

It's looking like it'll need to be several months away (too bad the summer is SO hot!)... I wish we could get everything worked out in time for May, but that doesn't seem possible... so late summer?

Location ideas?  Community center?  Park?  I live way out in Cypress now, but I don't think I would want to have it all the way out there (maybe in the 1960 area though... since it's busy...?).... any ideas for within the city?  There are TONS of parks/centers that I've found online, but I've never been to most of them & am wondering if there are a few that are generally more "popular" with the crowd we'd want to attract. 

Tables & chairs will have to be provided by the vendor.  I'll post a list of places to rent them on the website once more things are set...

the website!  There isn't one yet.... brainstorming names before I get one up... I'll post any updates here & would appreciate any help/suggestions anyone can provide.

I was thinking that it would be good to be affiliated to some other group too... it would definitely help with getting the word out.  I'll look around & see how that sort of thing needs to be worked out.

Awesome!  Glad to see some interest!  Any ideas on where to begin?  I guess a name should be determined so that anything I post anywhere (about getting a booth, etc) will be connected by a name. Any suggestions?

Also, any suggestions on a location?  I think it would be fun (& cheap!) to have it outside at a park on a not-so-hot day.

I'm interested in organizing a craft fair, along the same lines as renegade, in Houston in Spring 2005 (before it gets too hot!).  I definitely can't do it alone & don't want to if there's little to no interest for one. 

Would anyone be interested in having a table at an event that would be held at a park?  I've been looking for places... it'll be on the north-ish side of town, but I promise not to make it all the way out in Cypress, even though that would mean less driving for me. : )

I'd like to figure out how to get a general idea of the interest in something like this so that I could start to determine location, fees, volunteers to help me organize, etc.

Any suggestions, volunteered ideas/time or anyting else would be greatly appreciated!

Oh, and, hi. I'm Sarah & I read every last word on this site but have yet to post. I'm a little more vocal over at the glitter boards (but not much lately). I like to make things, I like people who make things and I'm tired of driving to Austin to be able to attend any sort of cool crafy event.  : )
