Alpaca Marketplace, Carolina Fiber Fest March 23-24, 2018

Members: Bring your fleece and other items for the Alpaca Marketplace with your inventory sheet to Lori Cherry to sell items throughout the upcoming Carolina Fiber Fest March 23-24, 2018, Then contact her to participate and volunteer during the Carolina Fiber Fest at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh March 23, 24, 2018.

CABO participated in the Southeast Animal Fiber Fair (SAFF) October 27- 29, 2017  held annually near Asheville, NC.  As one of the benefits of membership, farm members may contribute their products to sell through the Alpaca Marketplace, which is managed by the CABO board and staffed by CABO volunteers. This  past year, 10 member-farms contributed a wide range of products including felted soaps, alpaca yarns, roving, fleece, alpaca clothing, baskets and stuffed animals.  The diversity of products helped to make this  past year’s sales one of the best.   Members needed to get their items to one of the following:  Lori Cherry, Marion Snider, or Jane Clark .  Each item carrys two sale tags, preferably the kind with the separation including farm name, price and item detail, and an inventory sheet.  Setup was October 26th.  Contact one of the above for more details and getting the items to them for the upcoming events.

There is a charge to help defray the booth costs which will be deducted from the sale of the items sold.  And volunteers will be welcome to help in the booth.
