The Alpaca MarketPlace will be at the Carolina Alpaca Celebration!

Each year, events like the Carolina Alpaca Celebration present opportunities for promoting and selling alpaca products directly from the farms. At those events our organization sets up a vendor’s booth called the “Alpaca MarketPlace.” The Alpaca Marketplace provides our farm members an outlet so they can offer up for sale their farms’ merchandise or fiber. Anything related to the business of alpacas including clothing, fiber arts and crafts, fleece, roving, mill spun and hand spun yarn, felted, woven, knitted and crocheted items, dryer balls and so on is typical of the merchandise farm members consign for sale. As a rule, all fiber items must contain at least some alpaca fiber. Other items, such as equipment or supplies for spinning and weaving or agricultural products may also be available for sale. Buying from the Alpaca Marketplace means supporting a local alpaca farmer.

If you are interested in consigning merchandise at the Alpaca Marketplace the process is easy:

  • First, complete an store inventory listing all your items going to the Marketplace.
  • Second, “double tag” each item with the purchase price and your farm name. (One tag stays with the item sold; the second tag is used for inventory control.)
  • Third, plan to make drop-off, pick up or delivery arrangements and
  • Please contact secretary@carolinaalpacafarms.org for further information.
