About Preferred Promotions

     Preferred Promotions was established in 1996 by Don & Rachel Frislid. Don was a blacksmith's apprentice and Rachel a graphic artist when they were first introduced to craft shows. They traveled throughout the northeast participating in juried art & craft festivals. They did this for more than 10 years.

     They stopped traveling in the early 1990s to start a family, but missed their craft show family terribly. After seeing their first art & craft show Don and Rachel dreamed of creating a high quality marketplace on Long Island for artisans to sell their work, similar to the many shows they ventured to out of state. In 1996, one year after their first child was born, Preferred Promotions was created.

     Preferred Promotions began as one show in Stony Brook with 85 exhibitors. It has now grown to many shows through out the year. Every applicant is juried or judged by slides and photos of their work. Many apply, but only the very best are selected to participate. They are judged on quality, craftsmanship and originality. Artists and craftsmen come from all over the East Coast and beyond to participate in our events and join our growing family.

     All the shows are well organized, well attended, and held in beautiful communities on Long Island. In addition to the eclectic handcrafted items for sale, there are also craft demonstrations, children's activities and musical entertainment. Our outdoor shows are a wonderful treat for the whole family and our indoor shows offer a fascinating shopping experience.

     Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.  If you're looking for a certain artist or craftsman we can usually help find them. We look forward to serving you for years to come.
