*CALL FOR VENDORS: **HISTORIC CRAFTERS & EXHIBITORS FAIR*
*5th Rally for Norlands: Civil War Reenactment Weekend*
*June 13-14, 2015*
The Washburn-Norlands Living History Center in Livermore, Maine, is hosting its 5th Rally for Norlands: Civil War Reenactment Weekend on June 13 and 14, 2015. A significant portion of the event is a *Historic Crafters and Exhibitors Fair*, modeled after the "Sanitary Commission" fairs which emerged in the Civil War era as fundraising bazaars. Sanitary Commissions were organized to bring health supplies and aid to Civil War soldiers.
This is an opportunity to let the public know about your organization's or crafts' connection with America's 19th-century history at one of Maine's largest Civil War Reenactments.
The Rally's Historic Crafters and Exhibitors Fair is open to artisans, re-enactors, and scholars wishing to demonstrate and/or sell a traditional craft using 19th-century materials or methods such as pottery, woodworking or fiber arts. Civil War Sutlers who sell period wares and authors of relevant books are also welcome.
*Individuals, organizations, historical societies and museums* are also welcome to exhibit and/or demonstrate antiques, collections, or educational materials to our visitors, if the collection is relevant to the experiences of people who lived in the 1800s.
*Applications will be accepted through April 24, 2015.* A prepaid vendor fee of $35 is required if selling items; otherwise it is free. All applications are subject to approval. If your application is not approved, the fee will be returned.
