A HUGE THANK-YOU

Book Sale and Craft/Vendor Fair

Saturday, October 2, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Hollis Center Church - 388 Hollis Rd, Hollis Center, ME 04042 - 🗺️ Map It

We are having our fall book sale and craft/vendor fair at a NEW location!!

Plenty of parking and room to socially distance.

Come support the library rain or shine at the Hollis Center Church at 388 Hollis Road in Hollis, Maine!

We will have raffles and possibly a few food trucks.

Please see details below if you would like to have a table at the event.


If you are a crafter or vendor, you may call or email Heidi Lynch at (207) 391-9727 or lynch_heidi@hotmail.com to reserve a space. We are also allowing people to sell their own yard sale items.
Spaces are $25 for a 6 foot table space, and you may also set up an easy-up type tent.(Tables, chairs, and canopies are not provided by the Library).
Please send payment to: Hollis Center Public Library, P.O. Box 119, Hollis Center, ME, 04042. Space fee is nonrefundable, this event is rain or shine.
We kindly ask that all crafters and vendors donate an item of their choice to the raffle, and that people selling yard sale items bring their unsold items home with them.
We are looking for 1 vendor per home sales (for example, 1 Scentsy and 1 Tupperware).
Spaces for vendors are first come, first serve, and payment should be received by the Library no later than 3 days after reserving a spot.Otherwise, the spot goes to the next vendor who sells the same goods.(For example, if there are 2 Scentsy vendors who are interested in reserving a space, but the Library hasn't received the first Scentsy vendor's $25 payment within 3 days of reserving the space, the 1st Scentsy vendor forfeits his or her space and the second Scentsy vendor may reserve the space if desired).
We look forward to working with you!
