Alpaca Marketplace

Let’s make the CABO Alpaca Marketplace a

Success at CAC!!!!!

Let’s support the Alpaca Marketplace at the CAC Market Place event February 16 & 17, 2019.

Members:  Bring your fleece and other items for the Alpaca Marketplace with your inventory sheet to Char Johnson to sell items throughout the upcoming CAC show in February, 2019. Then contact her to participate during the CAC show at the Cabarrus Event Center in Concord, NC.

CABO opened the Alpaca Marketplace at the Southern Alpaca Celebration last 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 carries two sale tags, preferably the kind with the separation including farm name, price and item detail, and an inventory sheet.  Contact Char Johnson  at 614-565-0677 for more details and getting the items to them for the upcoming events as well as volunteering to work at the events.

There is a 10% charge to help defray the booth costs which will be deducted from the sale of the items sold.  Volunteers are needed to help in the booth.
