Vendors Needed for Veterans Home Virtual Craft Fair

Annual craft fair not stopped by pandemic

Press release

The New Hampshire Veterans Home (NHVH) will hold a virtual craft fair from Friday, November 13 to Sunday, November 15 on the Home’s Facebook page at Artisans are invited to register by Monday, September 28.

“Despite the pandemic, we worked out a way to continue the momentum of our annual craft fair,” shared Patty Copeland, Supervisor of Volunteer Activities. “Artisans are invited to safe, socially-distanced sales of their quality gifts. And since we appreciate that not all crafters are comfortable with technology, we removed that potential barrier with registration options that facilitate participation with or without a computer. We wanted to be sure all talented craftspeople had the opportunity to provide something for everyone again this holiday season.”

This year’s online craft fair will also feature the Home’s popular raffle offering a wide variety of gift certificates and items. Businesses, organizations, and community members looking to help our state’s veterans are encouraged to donate to the raffle.

Artisans may choose one of two levels of participation; registration fees are only $25 or $40. These registration fees and the raffle sales will benefit the NHVH Resident Benefit Fund.

To register to sell items, donate to the raffle, or seek more information, contact Patty Copeland at 527-4449 or
