We’re excited to announce that GLAM Indie Craft Show is moving to a new home!

After enjoying two great years at the Thelma Boltin Center, we decided that it was time to find a larger venue. Now we’ll be able to open up additional spots for talented artists and crafters, and we’ll have plenty of room in the aisles for our wonderful customers.

This year’s show will take place at Villa East at 301 N. Main Street in Gainesville. Some of you may remember this as the old Savannah Grande banquet hall. The building has been completely renovated since then and now has a great urban loft vibe, thanks to its exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and large windows. In recent years, it has been the location for the runway shows of Gainesville Fashion Week.

We’ll have 35+ vendors selling their handmade goods indoors. And for the first time ever, we’ll have room in the outdoor courtyard for vendors who prefer a 10′ x 10′ booth space. All GLAM shoppers will enter through this gated courtyard, so it’s going to be a great place to be!

The interior is gorgeous, so it’s not surprising that it’s a popular spot for weddings. The space is split into two areas, and both offer plenty of room for vendors and shoppers.
