Hurry and apply for the Last Handmade Market, and THANKS!

Have you applied yet?! You have only a few days left to apply for the 25th and LAST Handmade Market! We will accept applications through Thursday September 13th. Sunday, September 16th due to Hurricane Florence. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the info on the Application Guidelines and Event Information, and here is the handy link to The Handmade Market Application.

We also wanted to take a moment and reply to the overwhelming responses we have received from you, our community, following our announcement of the Last Handmade Market last week. It’s been incredibly sweet to hear what a special place our market has been to you, artists and customers alike. We also want to lessen your worries; by no means are we disappearing from the Handmade scene! We are simply closing one chapter and making room for bigger dreams to come to fruition. This does mean The Handmade Market as we have come to know and love it is ending, but it also means we will have the time to develop something bigger for Raleigh. Possibly a combination our two favorite things….handmade AND vintage! This day might be soon, or it may take a few years to develop. Keep following us and we promise we will keep you posted along the way.

Thanks again! Now go mark your calendars for November 10th and/or complete your application so you can help us make “the little Handmade Market that could” go out in style!

Apply to the LAST Handmade Market!

Artists and designers, you have two weeks left to apply for the 25th and LAST Handmade Market! We will accept applications until September 13th. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the info on the Application Guidelines and Event Information, and here is the handy link to The Handmade Market Application.

What’s this we said about the LAST handmade market?!?
You have heard that right. We have made the tough but freeing decision to make some changes. When we started in 2006, we were one of the very few venues for artists to sell their wares locally. We recognize that the need we filled at that time, is simply not there anymore, thanks to the plethora of local handmade shops, and arts & craft events through the year. Handmade is wonderfully accessible these days, and we are thrilled to have been a tiny part of this huge movement! Our plans are to continue growing Urban Vintage, and developing the creative dreams we’ve had on hold.

As an artist or shopper, if you have any anecdotes to share of what the Handmade Market has meant to you in the past 12 years, we would LOVE to hear it. Please submit your story here.

If you have been one of our many, many Handmade Market supporters throughout the years, be sure to come see us this November 10th all the fun!

Oh what fun we had at Urban Vintage!!!

A hearty hug to all of you who came to Urban Vintage at All Saint’s Chapel last weekend! What a beautiful background for all those freshly picked vintage treasures! 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 All Saint’s Chapel for providing such a beautiful space. The staff was a dream to work with!

To the amazing vendors, we thank YOU for turning All Saints Chapel into a magical, rusty, vintage, retro shoppers paradise. We already can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store.

If you want to keep up with any or all of the vendors you saw, 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. You may want to find out where they will be showing up next.

And we would love to shout out one more THANKS to our sponsors from local vintage shops.  





We cannot thank them enough partnering with us to bring this show to you fine folks!

Be sure to tag us in photos of your purchases!!!
