STEPHENVILLE-Tarleton State University’s Staff Council is looking for vendors to bring unique items to its 15th annual arts and crafts showcase. The yearly event enables vendors to sell to many people-all in one place.

Staff Council is looking for crafts that will make great gifts. Last year, the ballroom was filled with almost 70 vendor tables with items including Christmas decorations, jewelry, artwork, homemade food and much more.

“Staff Council offers an opportunity for crafters and artists to showcase their wares for purchase in a climate-controlled, well-lit, comfortable location with a large buying audience on site,” said Susan Gordon, Staff Council member. “Students, faculty and staff love the opportunity to pick up holiday gifts on campus.”

Vendor tables are $35 each. Profits from the fees will go into the Staff Council Employee Scholarship fund. Each vendor also needs to bring a $25 door prize. Shoppers will fill out a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of the door prizes.

This event invites people of all ages and interests to save time and money by shopping for unique gifts at local vendor tables.

The showcase will be held Friday, Dec. 5, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Tarleton’s Barry B. Thompson Student Center ballrooms.
