Have you ever wondered why the Georgetown Bible Church Craft Show is FREE?
The Georgetown Bible Church Craft Show is not a fundraiser. We are proud to be a very unique craft show that was created to help others, not ourselves. We see this show as an opportunity to serve others and be the hands and feet of Jesus. Our mission and commitment from the beginning has been to give vendors an opportunity to sell their items without being charged, and to bring in customers to purchase their items, as well as to give the community a great shopping experience.
Being craft enthusiasts ourselves, we felt very aware of the roadblocks many encounter when looking to participate in craft shows, as well as what makes a good craft show from a shoppers perspective.
What if I pay for a booth and don’t make any money?
Booth registration for vendors is completely FREE!
Who will watch my kids?
FREE childcare by background checked and trained workers is provided for vendors!
I need something to eat!
At-cost lunches available for vendors and their children, and FREE refreshments for vendors and shoppers!
I can’t afford to pay to get in AND purchase items.
FREE admission for all shoppers!
Will this be worth my time and money?
With free booths for vendors, there is no capital to be lost. We work hard to advertise the show and bring in as many shoppers as possible to make it worth their time and efforts. Free admission, free refreshments, a free prize raffle, and great, quality items for sale ensure that shoppers are not wasting their time or money!
Our first year was 2014, and, with no idea what would happen, we mapped out some booth spaces and opened registration. Word spread like wildfire and we were blown away by the response. We had to add more booths than we planned and ended up with 67 vendors in 81 booths. About 400 guests came through and we declared it a success! Our show and our vision has only grown each year since, and last year we hosted 89 vendors in 115 booths and had nearly 800 guests come to shop.
We are always looking for ways to help MORE people and reach further into our community and out into the world. We have a donation site for Operation Christmas Child each year, with a chance to win free prizes with each donation, and this year we will be partnering with Hand2Hand as well to collect donations and reach even more people in need.
Seeing this Craft Show bring joy to those around us, help people in our community, and be used in ways we never imagined has been a dream come true for us. We are eager to see how God continues to use the show in the future, and we want to thank you for being a part of our dream.
