Alpaca Marketplace

Carolina Fiber Fest is over and a Success!

Next event will be the SAFF event October 26-28, 2018 which you can contact through More details to follow.

Members: Bring your fleece and other items for the Alpaca Marketplace with your inventory sheet to Lori Cherry to sell items throughout the upcoming SAFF in October, 2018. Then contact her to participate and volunteer during the SAFF at the State Fairgrounds near Asheville, 2018.

CABO opened the Alpaca Marketplace at the Southern Alpaca Celebration in February. 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. Each item carrys two sale tags, preferably the kind with the separation including farm name, price and item detail, and an inventory sheet.  Contact Lori Cherry 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.
