Last chance to apply for our holiday show!

Vendor applications for Crafty Supermarket’s 2015 holiday craft show are open for just a few more days! The deadline to submit your work is 11:59 p.m., Tuesday Sept. 1. We can’t accept any applications after that time. Click here to learn more and submit your application! (Many vendor deadlines for other indie craft shows in the Midwest are approaching, too!)

We’ll be celebrating our sixth birthday at the Music Hall Ballroom in downtown Cincinnati from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 28, 2015. Last year we had more than 5,000 shoppers buying from 90+ vendors — you can see photos from last year’s big holiday show here.

In addition to about 100 makers, we’ll have a live DJ, hands-on craft activities, a cash bar, local food and free swag bags for the first 100 shoppers! It’s also Small Business Saturday, so Over-the-Rhine will be bustling with fun things to do and see.

Coming soon: Midwest Craft Con!

Running a craft business can be a lonely endeavor. When you make a living selling what you make, you're usually, well, making stuff. A revived creative business conference will get makers together to learn from each other and from experts in the creative fields. Midwest Craft Con is Friday to Sunday, February 19-21, 2016, in Columbus, Ohio, and early bird tickets are on sale now!
