Alpaca Marketplace

Let’s make the CABO Alpaca Marketplace a

Success at Blue Ridge Fiber Fest

June 7 & 8, 2019 9:00-6:00 each day.

Members:  Bring your fleece and other items for the Alpaca Marketplace with your inventory sheet to Char Johnson to sell items throughout the upcoming Blue Ridge Fiber Fest in June 7-8 , 2019. Then contact her to participate during this  show at the Allegany County Fairgrounds in Sparta, NC.   Setup will be Thursday and be done at 6:00 on Saturday.

The CABO Alpaca Marketplace is 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.  CABO 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 reflects the multiplicity of our CABO  farm members. 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.
