“[Anyone interested in being a vendor] can either call our office or they can go to our website and find all the details there as well. There is a Chautauqua link on the left side of the page,” Chapman said.

Chapman said that not all vendors are selected for the show, but that the chamber will work with anyone who is interested in a spot.

“We have a wide variety. Ours is a juried show,” added Chapman. “The items must all be originally hand crafted or artistically and creatively enhanced items by the person selling them. However, we are happy to answer any questions and help as many people come as they can.”
