Old Mill Pop-up HandmadeDuring the Waterford Fair, the Waterford Foundation offers fair-goers a selection of one-of-a-kind handmade crafts from more than 100 craftspeople–also chosen by a jury for their quality–sold in the Old Mill Shop. These items are attractively displayed in the lovely and historic Mill, and sold by Foundation volunteers.

Basketry, woodwork, jewelry, textiles, pottery, Christmas decorations, and other decorative objects are some of the many items that are attractively displayed in this lovely and historic setting. The crafts-person need not be present, although volunteer help is always welcome.

A non-refundable application fee of $30 must be submitted with your Mill Application, Consignment Proposal Form and Images (new consignors only).

Consignor will receive 75% of the selling price of each item.
