Call for Vendors - Winter Wonders Handmade Market



flock and gather craft collective is currently accepting applications for the Winter Wonders Handmade Market 2017.  

When and where is the market?
St. Joseph's Parish Hall, 1006 Broadway Ave., Saskatoon SK
Friday December 1 (4:30pm – 9:30pm) and Saturday December 2 (10:00am – 5:00pm)

Jury Process
The markets are juried to help ensure that there is a good mix of products and vendors, both new and returning, local and regional. We aim to keep each show unique and fresh. Each application is reviewed for craftsmanship, creativity, originality, type of craft, and product fit. For a detailed description of the jurying process please see the FAQ’s on the blog. Please note that all work must be original and handmade by the artist – kits, importers, or resellers are not acceptable.
How much will it cost me and what do I get?
8' table (8' wide by approximately 4' deep space) - $125
6' table with room for a rack (8' wide by approximately 4' deep space) - $125
4' table (4' wide by approximately 4' deep space) - $75
Kitchen space on Friday - $125
Kitchen space on Saturday - $150
Space for beverage cart (8’ wide by approximately 4’ deep space), cart to be provided by vendor - $125

The maximum height for display features (either on your table or standing) is 7’ if you are located along the outer walls, otherwise the maximum height is 5’6”. Use of the walls behind your space is not permitted. Table and chairs are provided. If you have display items that need special consideration for placement in the hall (for example: a display rack that stands behind your table), you must advise us well in advance of the show. There is no access to wifi or electricity at the tables. The hall has an abundance of windows and natural light. Lighting is not an issue in the hall. We encourage everyone who applies to consider how much space that they will need. If you can rearrange your display or  make due with less space please think about applying for a smaller table. We turn away so many amazing vendors every show. We want to ensure we get as many of you in as possible!
