County gets crafty in aid of charity

July 4, 2013 by  

Nassau County Craft Shows will be hosting its third annual fair in Lido Beach, New York over the weekend. Shoppers can expect a free event at which they will be able to speak directly to craftsmen who sell their own products, as well as veteran crafts fair vendors who are well stocked on some very unique goods.

The Nassau County Craft Shows company was created by Alan Finchley in 2008 with the intention of hosting fairs and festivals that were more focused on providing a positive vendor experience. Providing vendors with a good working atmosphere for their booths, Nassau County Craft Shows has managed to retain some of the best craft artisans and vendors in Long Island at its shows.

During this craft show season, the organization will also be making donations to the Kiwanis charity for supporting needy children. A percentage of the profits generated from vendor booth rentals will be donated to the cause. Additionally, in order to make it easier for vendors to attend the fair, there will be a reduction in the rental cost of booths.

Printing companies are likely to be contacted by the event organizers to help with advertising for the event. Flyers, postcards, and promotional posters are all very cost-effective ways to advertise an event, and handing these materials out in nearby towns like Long Beach or Island Park could help generate added foot traffic for the vendors.

The craft fair runs from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend.
