GENERAL INFORMATION

  • East of the Lazaretto Arts & Crafts Sale provides a forum for local, regional and national artists and craftsmen to sell their work.

  • East of the Lazaretto Arts & Crafts Sale welcomes artists and craftsmen of all mediums, 2D & 3D. Artists and Crafters of all kinds are encouraged to actively participate.

  • Admission for visitors to East of the Lazaretto Sale is free, with ample free parking.

  • Set-up will be Friday afternoon, January 31, 2020 from 7 - 9 PM and Saturday morning, February 1, 2020, from 8:00 AM-11:00 AM. Because children do not leave the center until after 5:00 PM on Friday afternoon, The Tybee Tourist cannot set-up until around 6 PM. It takes time for us to lay out your booths, set up the room, etc. We will be ready to let you in, promptly at 7PM, but will not allow entrance to any participant prior to that time, unless you volunteer to assist with set-up of the building.

  • The sale will run from 11:00AM-6:00PM on Saturday, February 1, 2020 and from 11:00 AM-5:00 PM on Sunday, February 2, 2020.

  • Breakdown will not be permitted until 5:00 PM on Sunday. If you choose to break down previous to that time, you will not be allowed to participate in future East of the Lazaretto Shows. If the event is quiet, the East of the Lazarretto Sfaff will take that into account, and may allow everyone to leave early, depending on other events and activities going on that weekend. It is up to the Staff of East the Lazaretto, however, not the individual participant, whether the participants can leave prior to 5:00 PM.

  • Booths are offered in two sizes (8'x3', and 12'x 3'). There are limited numbers of each booth size being offered. If booths offered sell out, a wait list will be started. With enough people on the wait list, we will open another room at the Burton 4-H Center for the Arts & Crafts Sale. If you are unable to register for a booth, contact sarah@thetybeetourist.com and let her know you would like to be wait listed.

  • East of the Lazaretto handles all art sales. We pay all state sales tax collected.  Artists receive 80% of all sales and The Tybee Tourist retains 20% of sales to cover the cost of rental, advertising, etc. for the event. All participants must have a W-9 on file in order to receive a check for sales. Individuals will not receive a check until The Tybee Tourist has the W-9 on file. W-9's are available online here.All participant checks will be mailed within two weeks of the end of the event.

  • All items sold must be handmade. Imports, craft supplies, kits and commercially produced items will not be allowed. No mass made items will be allowed. It is recommended that all prints that are sold be labelled as part of a limited series. All giclees and framed prints must be labelled, and all original paintings should be labelled as original.

  • A representative of the handmade items must be in the booth at all times.

  • Booth space only will be provided. 8 ft tables and chairs are also available, if needed. All artists are responsible for providing a fabric table cover that reaches the floor. The artist must also provide all booth supplies needed, including lights, which are highly recommended. Electricity is free. Again, tables should be covered to the floor and booths kept neat and professional at all ties.

  • Exhibitors must not extend their booth space past the confines of booth space marked. Nor may any exhibitor block the aisles in any way. Artists who wish to demo/display additional work should acquire a booth large enough to accommodate all contents within booth. Please keep in mind that your booth will be located next to, or between other artists, and that everyone works together.

  • Exhibitors are not to relocate or move from their assigned spaces unless moved by the East of the Lazaretto Staff.

  • All Booths should reflect the professionalism expected of a working artist and/or craftsman. The Tybee Tourist Staff reserves the right to ask any participant to adjust their booth in order to participate.

  • Electric Cords must be provided by the participant and must be securely taped to the floor.  It is also recommended that you bring additional lighting to highlight/showcase your particular artwork.

  • The Tybee Tourist will have sole decision on acceptability of work and reserves the right to remove any items or signs from the booth or to ask any participant to remove him/herself from the East of the Lazaretto Arts & Crafts Show if he/she is disruptive or unwilling to act as requested.
