Blossom Hill Crafts has been producing pottery and art sales for 48 years which has allowed us to cultivate a large customer base and develop a great sales infrastructure. We work hard to produce sales that flow smoothly and are profitable for our artists.
Reasons to choose a BHC sale:
- Our customers come to buy locally made artwork… not to listen to music and browse through vendor booths.
- Set-up and tear down is easy. All you have to do is show up with your work. We provide the tables. We set them up and take them down. For a nominal fee we’ll even provide you with tabletop pedestals.
- You don’t have to worry about calculating tax, running credit cards and providing shopping bags to your customers because we run a central cash register. We take care of the financial transactions and you get paid within two weeks.
- Unlike other promoters, we do not charge a booth or table fee. We only charge a commission. This means that you can not lose money at one of our sales.
Our commission Structure
- Your commission rate is based on your total sales. The more you sell, the lower your commission.
- There is no booth or table fee so you can’t lose money
