With the goal of presenting a professional and diverse show, A Handmade Christmas carefully curates the market in the best interest of shoppers and participating Makers. This is a juried show and the criteria for consideration includes quality, originality and overall craftsmanship. Overall balance of each category will be considered as well in the final Maker selection. We limit the number of makers in each category.
Applications will be accepted until each category has been filled. There is a possibility for a Maker to be waitlisted if their category is full. In order to create a well balanced and diverse show, Makers are waitlisted by category not by application date.
The Application Form is NOT a Save & Return style application. You must complete the form in one session and submit. So be prepared with access to your product images, bio and social platform links.
If you do have additional information, image or documentation that you need to send after you have submitted your application please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your Company Name in the subject so we can cross-reference details.
