Puppeteers of America Regional Festival Puppetry Store

An important part of any successful festival is the Puppetry Store and the success of the Puppetry Store is all about YOU!

Here is how it works…

All Attendees to the Puppet Homecoming Festival and Puppeteers of America members are invited to submit sale items to the Pop-Up Puppetry Store.   Items can include: handmade puppets, costumes, books, videos, puppet related crafts, and puppet supplies and materials. These should be priced so you get a percentage and the Puppetry Store gets another.  Designated store managers and volunteers who have items on sale man the space during the festival so all can buy remembrances of the event. This is a sure fire way to meet many people, talk shop and have a great and lucrative time.


  • Register in MySaleManager to be a consignor before September 20th, 2018.
  • Enter your inventory items for sale, and print out bar-coded price tags to attach them to your merchandise.
  • Sign up for a check-in time by September 20th, 2018.
  • Sign up for a store volunteer time.  (The consignor fee of $10 is waived with one hour volunteering.)
  • Bring your items in-person to 118 Elliot St., Brattleboro, VT on September 21st.  There is parking behind the store for unloading and a city lot nearby.  (The Puppetry Store does not accept any shipped merchandise at this Festival)

Volunteering at the Puppetry Store is a fun and helpful way to meet other puppeteers and the public.
