call for vendors: apply for our big holiday show!
Calling all crafters!
Applications for Crafty Supermarket’s 2016 holiday craft show are open from July 15 to Sept. 1! Applications for the Crafty Supermarket holiday craft show are now closed! We will let everyone who applied know about their acceptance status by Sept. 15.
The craft show is at the University of Cincinnati’s Recreation Center from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19, 2016. (We usually do our holiday show at Music Hall in downtown Cincinnati, but it’s under renovation!) Our show features handmade goods only — no commercial products.
We expect more than 6,000 shoppers at our handmade market, and we’ll also have a live DJ, hands-on craft activities, local food and free swag bags for the first 100 shoppers!
HOW TO APPLY
Please read our Crafter FAQ before you apply.
In the online application, you’ll be asked to upload up to five images in JPG, GIF or PNG format. (The images should be at least 400×600 pixels but no bigger than 1 MB in size each.) Please name your files in this format: BusinessName1.jpg, BusinessName2.jpg, and so on. (If you need help resizing your images, try a free service such as ShrinkPictures.)
There’s a nonrefundable application fee of $10. (You’ll be guided to pay via PayPal when you complete the application. If you need help, PayPal has tutorials on its website — click on the Send Money tab.) The vendor fee for our show is $150, but if you’re accepted, the application fee counts towards the table fee.
When you submit the application, you should receive a confirmation message and a confirmation email from us and be taken to PayPal to pay the application fee. If that doesn’t happen, your application might not have gone through — email us to check on it.
We will stop accepting applications at 11:59 p.m. Sept. 1. We’ll notify all crafter applicants of their acceptance status by Sept. 15. Thanks for your interest!

I missed the deadline! Can I still apply?
We get more applications for the show than we can accept, so we can’t allow any late applications out of fairness to crafters who applied before the deadline. If a spot opens up from a vendor being unable to attend the show, we select alternates from the people who applied before the deadline.
If you want to apply to be in our next show, be sure to follow us here on the website, on Facebook or via our e-newsletter. We broadcast our upcoming opportunities in all those places! Information about our 2017 spring show will be posted in January.
