It’s for creative, resourceful people of all ages and backgrounds who like to tinker and love to make things.

This event is juried. We, along with our trusted jury, will review each application and take a variety of items into consideration when choosing our vendors. We are looking for quality handmade items, a cohesive brand, great photographs of your items so we can see what you make, innovative items, etc. Application fees cover this jurying process and are NON-REFUNDABLE.
Thank you for being so wildly creative!
