seeking a few good volunteers!

Want to be a Crafty Supermarket volunteer? We need people to help out in two-hour shifts on the day of the show (Saturday, Nov. 20, from about 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.), doing things like:

  • greeting shoppers
  • handing out swag bags & programs
  • watching tables for vendors who need to take a break
  • setting up the night before

In exchange, you get one of our legendary swag bags full of free crafty goodies! If you’re interested in helping out, e-mail us at We’ll send you more info, and we’ll have a volunteer meeting shortly before the show to get everyone assigned and give you more details.

join us tomorrow!

Just wanted to reiterate all the important info those of you coming out for Crafty Supermarket tomorrow!

The show is open and free to the public from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 17, 2010. The first shoppers of the day will get one of our 100 swag bags, filled with delightful freebies!

We’ll have 50 amazing craft vendors, food, drinks and treats from five local caterers and restaurants, and a DJ from PROJECTMILL spinning all day.

Some vendors are able to accept credit cards or checks, but your best bet is to bring cash. There’s no ATM on site — the closest ATMs are on Ludlow Avenue.

Crafty Supermarket is happening at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center in Cincinnati’s Gaslight District. The address is 3711 Clifton Ave., right at the corner of Clifton and McAlpin avenues. Learn more about the CCAC here.

Note: At this time, the CCAC building is not wheelchair-accessible. There are a number of steps to get into the building and up to the first floor.
