The show will take place on Friday, November 11th from 6 pm until 9 pm, and continues on Saturday, November 12th from 10 am until 5 pm. We will have space for over 50 amazing artists, crafters, designers.

The Handmade Market will be in a NEW LOCATION: Venture Hall at Marbles / IMAX, just on the other side of Moore Square from where we have been the last few years.

To apply:
Step 1: Get a strong cup of coffee and spend some time reading the application guidelines.

Step 2. Fill out this application using your professional yet whimsical voice (because you are probably “creative” in some fashion or another) and be sure to include fantastic photos of your work.

Step 3. Wait patiently for the jury to respond to you. We promise responses will begin going out no later than September 21

If you are new to applying for craft shows (or you just like to read), this post from Dear Handmade Life is incredibly helpful and full of great tips.

We look forward to seeing all your wonderful work!

Thank you!! Urban Vintage was another huge success!

A HUGE thank you, and a big warm hug to all of you who came to Urban Vintage at the gorgeous Traine! Your overwhelming patronage and support keeps us excited and going strong, and confirms we are still on to something great here. Thank you for coming out and making our vendors happy. And allowing them to leave the show with a haul much lighter than when they arrived!

Thank you to the amazing vendors for bringing all their drool-worthy goods and together making the space look like a magical, rusty, vintage, retro shoppers paradise. We already can’t wait for the next Urban Vintage in March!

If you want to keep up with any or all of the vendors you saw this weekend, check out the vendor gallery.  And, read the vendor spotlight posts, where you will also find links to their various websites and social media outlets. Keep on drooling and find out where they will be showing up next.

We would love to shout out one more THANKS to our show sponsors.Traine-Logo-Web





We really cannot thank them enough for believing in our big idea and partnering with us to bring this show to you fine folks!
