Interested in becoming a vendor at one of our shows?
Please read the following information carefully.
What are we looking for? We are looking for artists and vendors who sell products that have handmade elements. We accept anything from soap to jewelry to food products. We are open to a lot of different products, we just need them to be in some way handmade.
How does our application process work? We do not look at any applications until after the due date (which is listed on the application page). That means, if you apply right before the due date, your application will be considered at the same time as someone who applied two months ago. Go ahead and apply right up until the time the application is due. For this reason, we are not able to tell you if you are accepted or not until the date listed on the application page.
How do I know if my application and fee went through? Once you fill out the application and press the 'Submit' button, there will be a new screen with a message that says "Thank you for applying!". After you pay your application fee you will also receive an emailed receipt.
Why is each show juried separately? The space can only accomodate about 34-45 artists per show. We also want to make sure there is a diverse collection at each show. What this means for you, is you may get into one show, but not another depending on how many people apply who make the same kind of work that you do.
How important are our instructions? Very important! If you do not pay the application fee you will not be considered. If you do not fill out the application correctly, you will not be considered. One part in particular where people often fill out the application incorrectly is for table choices. We need two different table choices. If you put the same option down twice, your application will not be considered.
When are shows? Shows are listed under Upcoming Shows. If the application is still open for the show, then that date will be listed as its own page. You can apply to that show and pay the application fee on that application show page.
