Sale 101: An Overview

An introduction to the Show & Sale, how to join the Guild, what Standards is about, working shifts and why to do so even if you’re not selling anything, the overall time frame and deadlines, and the juried Showcase. There’ll be photos of previous sales at the beginning, and plenty of time for Q & A throughout and at the end.

Complying with the Standards

Learn about our Standards procedures, and how the Guild ensures that every item offered for purchase is appropriate for the Show & Sale, is well executed, and is ready to be sold. We strongly encourage everyone attending to bring to the meeting examples of items they’re considering selling to see if they’re appropriate. A significant part of the session will be for participants to interact with the Standards Coordinator.
