Thanks so much for coming out to the show on Saturday — we had record-breaking attendance, and our vendors really felt the love from Cincinnati! We saw more than 6,500 shoppers at Music Hall, the most we’ve ever had!
If you were one of the shoppers, we’d love to get your feedback to make Crafty Supermarket even better next year — this quick survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
Big thanks to all our sponsors: 21c Museum Hotel, 365 Cincinnati, ArtWorks Cincinnati, Cincinnati Art Museum, Contemporary Arts Center, Enjoy The Arts, Ensemble Theater Cincinnati, Foodie Cincy, Kiki Magazine (who created the amazing craft room!), Made in Cincinnati, NVISION, Over-the-Rhine Chamber, Redtree Art Gallery and Coffee Shop, and our media partner, Cincinnati Magazine!
And of course mad props to our food vendors for keeping us well-fed: Brown Bear Bakery, Dojo Gelato, Fireside Pizza Wagon, La Terza Artisan Coffee Roasterie, Macaron Bar, Quite Frankly, Red Sesame Korean BBQ/Taco and Street Chef Brigade!
And to the 90 makers who came from from near and far to sell with us — some with giant bags of strange creatures!
If you can’t figure out which maker you bought something from, we’ve got a digital copy of our show map here.
We are also forever indebted to the wonderful volunteers who help us on the day of the show, and Ben Davis of Bad Veins for being our in-house DJ. Thank you to the amazing staff of Music Hall for all their help in setting up and making the show run smoothly. Thank you to James Billiter for designing our swag bags and Aaron Kent of DIY Printing for screenprinting them!
The lovely Tamia Stinson of Cincinnati Magazine was our guest judge to give out some very crafty awards:
She made her selections for the first three awards, and then the shoppers of Crafty Supermarket voted on Best in Show:
- Best Product: JFR Glass of Cincinnati
- Best Display: Wire & Twine of Oxford
- Best Newbie: Lauren H-B Studio of Cleveland
- People’s Choice: Allie Art Designs of Cincinnati
And for now, we’re taking December off to spend with our friends and families! We’ll post information in January about our next show, on May 7, 2016, at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. Have a great rest of the year!
Love, Chris & Grace
