get involved with the show

Crafty Supermarket is a big undertaking. If you’ve ever been, you know what we’re talking about: dozens of handmade vendors who drive from hours away to be with us, and thousands of shoppers who want to see what they brought. To help us make the craft show run smoothly, we count on our dutiful volunteers and sponsors to give us a hand and help spread the word!


At our big show on Nov. 29 at Cincinnati’s beautiful Music Hall, we have a couple of opportunities to help out. (And when you assist us for a couple hours, you’ll get one of our famous swag bags!) Volunteers can help shoppers know where everything is, assist vendors who need a break, and help load in at the beginning of the day and clean up at the end of the day. You can learn more and submit your info here. We’ll get back to you a few weeks before the show with the schedule. (Note that we sometimes get more volunteer applications than we can take, but we’ll get back to you either way!)


We work with all kinds of local organizations who love handmade and want to help spread the word. From arts nonprofits and landmark institutions to DIY shops and enterprises, if you support the maker movement, we’d love to work with you! Our media partners this year are Cincinnati Magazine and 91.7 WVXU. Learn more about sponsorship opportunities here.

Oh boy, the Holiday 2011 Crafty Supermarket is going to be here before we know it! (If you haven’t already, you can RSVP to the event on Facebook to get it on your calendar.)

With less than a month to go until the show on Nov. 19, we’ve got our amazing vendors all lined up. But if you were hoping to still get involved with the show, we’ve got a couple opportunities to pick from!

  • Volunteering: We have a bunch of different things we need help with on the day of the show and the night before! By donating two hours of your time, not only do you get good craft karma, you get one of our prized swag bags! Read more about what being a volunteer entails and sign up in our form here! (We can’t offer everyone who signs up to be a volunteer a spot, but we’ll get back to you with volunteer assignments by early November.)
  • Sponsorships: Do you have an awesome business or organization that you would like to promote while helping us grow our awesome little indie craft fair? Be a sponsor for our holiday show! Email by Oct. 28. We have sponsorship packages starting at just $50!
  • Donating swag: We’ll be giving away 125 swag bags to the first lucky shoppers of the day and our trusty volunteers. If you’d like to contribute promo items for your local business or crafty enterprise, please send 125 pieces by Nov. 1 to:
