Hello Handmade Market Sellers!
The Handmade Market is taking the summer off.
I hope that you use the opportunity to take advantage of all the great outdoor summer shows in Chicagoland. Feel free to use our forum to find sellers to share space with:
Our last show of this season is April 10th. We plan to be back at the Empty Bottle in either September or October of 2010 and will stick with the second Saturday schedule. Fall shows usually go on sale in June or July. I will send an email to this list when they do. You can also keep in touch through facebook:
Please plan on visiting us and buying some homemade goodies for your Valentine on Saturday, February 13th. Please invite your facebook friends too:
The summer shows at the Randolph Street Market are sold out. They sold out within 24 hours.
For those of you who wanted to sell with us you have a couple options:
1. Heather is going to start a waiting list. Send Heather what dates you are interested in and she will add you. “All of them” doesn’t work well for creating a waiting list by date.
2. The Street Market is still taking individual applications. You can
get either an indoor or outdoor table for the weekend for $75. There’s no way to do a tent outside though, so you’re stuck with the weather. There are also larger indoor or outdoor spaces. From what I have heard, the outdoor vendors get more traffic. I don’t think the organizers will let you share spaces, they made an exception for us, but you can ask.
Handmade Market is teaming up with the Randolph Street Market this summer, from May to September.

The tables are available for booking now. Find out how to be a seller.
The Handmade Market will be partnering with street festivals for our summer schedule. The plans have not yet been finalized. If you are on our sellers email list, you will be notified when dates become available. Please do not email questions until that time.
