*Applications are now CLOSED for the Holiday 2017 Market**
Application deadline is October 1st. This is a juried show and space is limited, so please apply as soon as possible.
We're so excited to be presenting our first annual Holiday show! We're aiming to create a delightful experience for shoppers looking for authentic handcrafted goods with modern appeal. And we want to be a positive addition to the Berea art scene, complimenting the traditional crafts for which our town is well known.
Want to apply?
We're seeking professional level Makers who have a well-developed brand/identity and are offering items that are unique and special, and appeal to a modern audience. Professional level Makers will usually have a strong logo for their business, a website or Etsy shop, and be promoting their work through social media.
We will be accepting a limited number of emerging artists, who are currently developing their brand, though may not have it fully in place, giving them an in-show perspective.
Please note that space is limited and applications are accepted as they are received.
What kind of items are you looking for?
We are looking for 100% handmade or hand assembled items. Ideally, materials should be locally sourced if possible. If outsourcing is used (such as screen printed t-shirts from original designs) then the outsourcing must be within the US. If possible, US made items (t-shirts, tote bags, etc) are also preferred.
Items which contain vintage or found materials, as well as handmade elements, are acceptable.
Direct sales such as Lularoe, Origami Owl, etc are not permitted. We also will not be accepting applications from vinyl decal printing companies.
This is our first juried Holiday show and the deadline for application is October 1st, 2017. Our venue is the Russel Acton Folk Center, which includes both indoor and outdoor booth spaces.
Indoor booth space, which includes an 8' table and two chairs, is $75. Outdoor booth spaces are $50. Outdoor vendors will need to supply their own table and tent in case of inclement weather. Food vendors, please contact Laura Wick for more info!
Marketing and Outreach
We'll be utilizing social media as well as traditional media to market our show to the central KY region. Vendors will be prominently featured and we'll provide marketing materials to help promote the show as we get closer to the event date.
