Time to apply for the Bazaar Bizarre Maker Faire 2010! Now accepting applications through March 16th 2010.
Maker Faire is a two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for creative, resourceful people of all ages and backgrounds who like to tinker and love to make things. From a vendor standpoint, this fair is AMAZING. I make more sales at the Maker Faire than at any other fair ever. Period. Also, on load-in day there’s free dinner and … Read more »
This one’s got a really quick turnaround, so be sure to act quickly if you want to participate. I for one am thrilled to have the chance to beef up my mid-winter income, which is typically kind of a slow season for me.
Here’s the info:

This is my favorite craft fair. Period. The organizers take such good care of you in every way. It can be tough to get in (the odds are about 1 in 3) but the organizers make a commitment to bringing in a significant number of new vendors every year (at the last fair in May it was 50% new vendors). You can find the application here. Last day to apply is September 21st. Notifications are sent on September 30th.
The annual Providence, RI holiday season craftavaganza (yeah, I said it) is back and the application is now up. The show takes place 12/4-12/31. Craftland works a little differently than most other shows you’re used to in that they don’t charge a booth fee (it’s in a retail store), they take a commission — 30% if you volunteer 12 hours, 40% if not. This makes it a really good first show or one to try out new products — you only pay money if you make money. It’s also good if you … Read more »
This Wednesday, April 1st, is the deadline to apply for the May Bazaar Bizarre, which takes place during the Maker Faire in San Mateo on May 30-31st. If you make your own wares, and you only have the time/budget to do one craft fair this year, apply for the Bazaar Bizarre. Not only is it by FAR the least expensive to participate in ($130 for the entire weekend!), they really take care of you, providing dollies, load-in help, and free food and drinks all day long. They even have volunteers to … Read more »
I have attended two previous Capsule events as a shopper, but this was my first time as a vendor. All in all it was worth it (I made about twice the cost of my booth) but it wasn’t an investment with major returns.
The event happened on Sunday, May 25th, from 11-6, on several blocks surrounding Patricia’s Green in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. The booth fee is a fairly steep $190, considering you are not provided with shelter, parking or furniture of any kind. We … Read more »
