Our Vendor Experience at the Twin Angel Folk Festival

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

On September 11 of this year we participated as a vendor in the Twin Angel Folk Festival held at Camp Sloper in Southington, CT. The festival celebrated its 5th year this year and raises funds for the Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome Foundation. TTTS is a disease that effects about 10% of all identical twin pregnancies.

The vendor location was just above the amphitheater overlooking Sloper Pond. Being a young event there were about a dozen local vendors featuring products and services that ranged from jewelry and art to Green conscious products and services.

Being above the amphitheater provided an ideal spot for musical entertainment by the outstanding feature artists. The layout of the grounds provided an ideal spot for foot traffic by being in the heart of all the activity. Attendees could not get to the entertainment without first going through the vendor area. An ideal set-up for potential customers.

Attendance for this 1 day, 7 hour event, was around 150 this year. We had a lot of lookers and a good percentage of buyers. For artists reading this we sold mostly prints. There were some craft vendors also but I don’t know how they did. However, our experience was so good we are already planning to go back next next year and encourage you to join us. The entry fee is more than reasonable; a donated item to be used in the raffle or silent auction. Food and drink is included in the ticket price and provided to vendors for no additional charge.
