    I had an Early American shop in Snohomish for about 13 years. Although I have closed, I have access through previous vendors, to offer early American wares at your festival.’
    Items include 13 star flags, tricorns, mob caps, children’s toys, pewter, tin lighting…
    Is this something you are interested in?
    What is the cost for a space?
    If you are interested, I would expect no competition on my goods with other vendors.
    I was at the tea last Saturday and was impressed with what I saw.
    This is truly a venue I wish to support.
    If we can agree to terms, I am able to advertise and promote this show.
    Thank you.

      Dear Berthina; I just received permission to contact you! I *think* we are considering having a Suttler next year. However, for this year’s event, (which starts in a week!), I would be interested in purchasing any Period Correct item’s that you might have available for the Children’s Village. Please let me know what, if anything, you might be able to let me purchase from you. Thank you so much! Sincerely, Karla Morgan.

  2. Good Morning Berthina!

    I would be happy to talk with you further regarding your idea. There currently would be no cost for you to utilize the space. I would need to make sure the focus is primarily on the historic themes of our event – our founding history, colonial times, Patriotic Americana, Rev War, etc. I can’t guarantee 100% exclusivity as the D.A.R. & S.A.R. members will often have small items they sell for fundraising which might crossover. There would be no intent to directly compete and we would enjoy having those resources. I would also ask that retail pricing be inline with the nature of our nonprofit educational program (Northwest Colonial Festival) and be competitive with the market.

    There would be no plan to recruit any other vendors in your specialty and I am sure you would find a ready made audience for your products. I would be glad to discuss the details with you further. The event is located outside on the grounds of the George Washington Inn this August 9th – 12th. You may reach me at my email (dlwilbanks@gmail.com) or my cell – 541-817-3353 as needed.

    Thank you for taking the time to drop us a line.

    With Regard,

    Dan Wilbanks
    Event Director
    Northwest Colonial Festival
