ARRAC has limited jewelry cases and display racks for cards, so please feel free to bring your own displays. Highly valuable items can be locked up over-night. Checking inventory "in and out" accommodations will be made for those artists planning other short-term arts and crafts shows such as Christmas on the Coosa. You do not have to stay with your work, but volunteers are welcome.
Advertising and marketing will consist of Community Calendars in local newspapers, ARRAC’s website and Facebook page, as well as flyers distributed around the community and at upcoming functions. A copy of the flyer can be provided to you for your own mail list, or an electronic version in PDF format can be emailed for your email list distribution.
