Alpaca Marketplace

Let’s make the CABO Alpaca Marketplace a Success

SAFF is cancelled.  Hopefully next at CAC.

Participation in the CABO Marketplace is a valuable part of your CABO membership.  Members of the fiber committee work hard to promote the alpaca industry and to sell your farm products.  Every farm that has participated in the last three Marketplace events has had sales more than the cost of their annual CABO membership fee.

We will be promoting alpacas as livestock, demonstrating working with alpaca fiber and selling YOUR farm products!  We will also display member business cards and promotional materials.  Member-farms have historically contributed a wide range of products including felted soaps, alpaca yarns, roving, fleece, alpaca clothing, baskets and stuffed animals.  Please contact Char Johnson at 614 565-0677 or HappyTailsAlpacaFarm@yahoo.com for help getting your items and business materials to this event or to find out how you can volunteer to help setup or work in the store.  Send your items to an event and sometimes  we can forward them on to the next event.  Each item sold at the store should carry two sale tags, preferably the kind with the separation including farm name, price and item detail.  All items should also be listed on an inventory sheet which should be provided to Char prior to the event.  Click here to view the CABO Alpaca Marketplace Rules and Regulations.

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.
