More Vendors Welcome at YuleFest

YuleFest, our annual sale of handmade arts and crafts, is Sunday, Dec. 2, in the Seguin/Guadalupe County Coliseum, 950 S. Austin St. from 10 AM to 4 PM. Vendors from all around Central Texas will offer holiday shoppers gifts and goods in a variety that defies the imagination.

To reserve a vendor booth, click here to open the entry form, print and complete it. The form includes instructions on where to mail it with copy of your sales tax certificate and booth rental fee, or you can take your entry to the Gallery at 109 N. River, Seguin. Hurry, because the remaining spaces will fill quickly.

All goods for sale will be handmade or enhanced by hand by the vendor. The booth rental fee for vendors is $55 plus $10 for electricity, $5 for each table, and $2 for each chair needed. Each vendor also donates a door prize. Vendors must display their sales tax certificate in the booth throughout the day and are responsible for collecting and paying applicable sales taxes.

Art league volunteers will start marking off spaces for booths and decorating before dawn. Vendor setup is from 8 to 10 AM, when SOAL will provide free coffee and doughnuts. Loading docks are available, and parking is free.

Admission to the public is free all day, and door prizes from vendors are awarded every 15 minutes.

"Flight" Show Opens

Members and guest artists submitted their work for the annual fantasy show in late October. With the theme "Flight" set by last year's First-Place winner Sandra Baggett, the show includes imaginative and beautiful works in a wide variety of media.

The public attended the opening reception Friday, Nov. 9, from 5 to 7 PM. Ann Leithead and her Receptions Committee worked hard to prepare an array of special delicacies to serve guests. Click here to see a few photos taken by Nancy Kissiar.

The work displayed is for sale, and the gift shop will be open for business, so invite all the area art lovers that you know to stop by before the holidays. The show will remain on display through Jan. 4, 2013, during regular Gallery hours, 10 AM to 6 PM Wednesday through Saturday.
