Good morning, internet! We were browsing new work from past Big Thaw vendors and saw the above from Quercus Design, based out of Bar Harbor, Maine. Jennifer Booher of Q.D. was a vendor at the inaugural Big Thaw last April, 2011 at Mayo Street Arts. Beautiful work, Jennifer!
There have been some questions regarding applications, so let’s go over them here so everyone’s in-the-know!
1. Yes, you can submit your payment for the vendor fee via Paypal. Please email me at thebigthawportland [at] gmail dot com for how to do this.
2. Yes, you can email your application if that is easiest for you!
3. The original .pdf we put up didn’t have the mailing address for applications: woops. Problem solved! But if you are wondering, all application documents are now correct with all the information you’ll need.
4. Yes, we love help where future vendors can offer it! Because The Big Thaw is organized on a shoestring budget (vendor fees basically cover the venue and our beautiful posters) help in any form is greatly appreciated: marketing, hanging posters, photographs of the event for future marketing, connections at local businesses where we can put our posters in ‘prime’ locations, newspaper features, tv interviews, knighthood by Queen Elizabeth, you know — that stuff.
So exciting! The Big Thaw will be happening on Saturday, May 12, 2012 (which is the day before Mother’s Day) so we are hopeful for a big shopping day of children, big and small, young and old finding the perfect something for their Mama. Thanks to everyone who’s applied already, and for everyone else: keep those applications coming in!
