All about Approval Days
and the Appointment of New Crafters
This is the only route to follow so all relevant information is on this page.
In order to select new crafters for the The Country Craft Market, an Approval Day Market is held each year. This is the day on which those wishing to become part of the Country Craft Market get an opportunity to present their craft in a full market environment open to the public.
Because the Approval Day is run exactly as the usual County Craft Market days, new crafters are given the opportunity to demonstrate their craftwork, their displaying skills, and the way they interact with the public.
The Next Approval Day Market will be on
Wednesday, 1 May 2013
08h00 and 14h30
in case of rain, the alternative date will be Saturday, 11 May 2013
at the usual venue
Southey's Vines, 186 Main Road, Somerset West
What you need to do to reserve a stall at this market
Bookings will be made at the Markets prior to the Approval Day Market.
These are February Saturday 9, February Saturday 23, March Thursday 21, March Saturday 30, April Saturday 13, and if space is still available, April Saturday 27.
Visit one of these markets personally between 08h00 and 13h00 and present yourself to one of the committee members who will be manning the Information Stall.
There is no need to bring any samples of your craft items as evaluations will only be done at the Approval Day Market.
You will be given an entry form. Complete this and pay the booking fee of R 100 (which also covers your stall fee for the Approval Market Day). With your receipt for the booking fee, you will be given complete instructions regarding the Approval Day Market.
Get crafting and see you at the Approval Day Market
Take note of these conditions
An important criterion for acceptance onto our market is that we accept only top quality handmade craftwork made and sold by the Crafter that has produced them. No agents are accepted.
Excluding our regular catering stall, the Country Craft Market does not accept crafters selling foodstuffs
