When will the jury notifications be sent?

Jury notifications will be emailed starting September 26th.

I applied and was put on the Waiting List. What does that mean?

During the jurying process, a waiting list is created to fill spaces opened when an accepted artist cancels or forfeits his/her space. If you’re placed on the waiting list, you’ll be notified via email (and if you’d rather not be on the waiting list, just let us know). If you’re admitted to the show from the waiting list, we’ll notify you by email ASAP, and you’ll have three days from that time to confirm your participation and an additional two days to pay your booth fee. If your confirmation and payment are not received in time, then the space may be forfeited to the next artist on the waiting list.


If I can’t do the show, can I get a refund?

Though we hope you won’t have to give up your spot in The Handmade Market, we understand that conflicts do arise. Cancellations submitted before October 13th will receive a full refund.

The $10 application fee is non-refundable.

How much time will I have to set up?
