Seabury Hall Launches Online Craft FairMay 6, 2020, 9:47 AM HST · Updated May 6, 9:47 AM 0 Comments
Amid these unprecedented times, the 47th annual Seaburry Hall Craft Fair will look a little different this year.
The event, which normally attracts over 5000 residents and visitors to the Seabury Hall Campus each year, has been canceled.
However, Craft Fair committee members have other plans to support these vendors.
“As we approached the month of May, our thoughts turned to all of those who depend upon the income generated by craft fairs,” said Seabury Hall parent and volunteer event chairwoman, Dyvette Fong,
“We recognize that many of our confirmed craft fair participants had spent money on supplies and may have inventory piled high in their homes and businesses.”
The Craft Fair volunteer committee members, through a series of Zoom meetings, decided to host an Online Craft Fair.
“We are excited about our current plans to help direct business to them online on our social media pages and on the school’s website,” exclaimed Fong.
While Seabury Hall issued refunds of vendor fees to all crafters, they say wanted to take their support a step further.
“These crafters are part of our Seabury Hall Ohana and many have been participating in the fair for over 10 years,” said Parent Coordinator, Gayle Hart.
When asked about what it costs to participate, Hart said that Seabury Hall will not be collecting any fees or commission from the vendors who participate in the Seabury Hall Online Craft Fair,
“We will do what we can to assist them during this time so they can return to participate in 2021.”
For a full listing of over 100 local vendors, and to shop for locally crafted gifts, art, clothing, candles, soaps, pottery, and jewelry visit the Seabury Hall Craft Fair Facebook page @Seabury Hall Craft Fair and Instagram @SeaburyFair as well as on the Craft Fair page on the school’s website.
“We are all in this together and we want to do our part in helping our island community,” stated Kimber Carhart, volunteer Craft Fair committee member.
The Craft Fair is scheduled for Saturday.
