Apply to vend at our 2015 holiday events!

Thank you for your interest in our 2015 holiday events!

Last year’s Winterfest and main Bazaar shows had record-breaking traffic as we celebrated our 10th anniversary. This year, we’re adding a new east side event on Coventry in partnership with their merchants association, and we expect traffic to be booming there, too!

This application must be submitted BEFORE 15 August 2015. Please note, there is a $15 non-refundable application fee which will be applied to your total show bill if you are accepted for any of the three events. This fee must be paid before 30 August or your application will NOT be juried and you cannot be accepted for any of the shows.

Printable vendor list for this weekend!

Download a copy of the 2014 holiday show vendor list.

Tip: if you bring a copy of the list with you to the show, you can make notes about where you found what. It also comes in handy if you later regret not buying something and need to remember “THIS person had the thing that I liked.”

We’ll update it after the show with live links so you can visit the vendor’s websites/Etsy shops/etc.

See you Saturday 10-9 and Sunday 10-6 at 78th Street Studios!

Save time at the door! Buy shirts and earlybird tix now!

We’re pretty excited about these commemorative 10th anniversary show shirts. Only a limited number were produced by Cleveland’s own Jakprints, using art by local tattoo artist Ryan Crawford. Want to be sure you get the size you need? Preorder here and we’ll have them ready for you at the door.

This sneak preview is a digital mockup by Jakprints. Don’t worry, the ink is red red, not pinkish as it seems here.

Don’t want to stand in line outside in the cold? Buy an earlybird ticket and you’ll get in an hour early (at 9:00) on Saturday AND a t-shirt.

Speaking of standing outside: we’re happy to announce that (in partnership with Detroit Shoreway), we’ll be one of three stops on their trolley from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday the 13th. The other two stops are at the Capitol Theatre and at Cleveland Public Theatre’s parking lot. Hopefully this will help alleviate some of the parking woes. Here’s a map:

Thanks so much for your support and we’ll see you on the 13th and 14th!

Winterfest + Manly Mart = apply now!

Northeast Ohio is a creative place, and we’re really excited to be teaming up with Akron’s Crafty Mart for two new shows this holiday season.

The first will be during Winterfest in downtown Cleveland at the 5th Street Arcades (for old school Clevelanders, that’s the Colonial Arcade). 29 November 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

RSVP here for the show and invite your friends! Come down and shop indie (a welcome relief after Black Friday), then see the lighting ceremony on Public Square.

The second show will be the first time CM’s Manly Mart takes place in downtown Cleveland! 5-6 December, hours TBA.

Vendors, you can apply for the Winterfest show here and for Manly Mart here.
