PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING DETAILS CAREFULLY BEFORE APPLYING. 

Thanks for your interest in GLAM Craft Show! The Winter 2022 edition will take place on Sunday, Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at First Magnitude Brewing Company.

EVENT DATE AND TIME: Sunday, Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2022 by 11:59 p.m.

VENUE: For this winter show, we will once again be at First Magnitude Brewing Company, 1221 SE Veitch Street, Gainesville, FL 32601. The venue will offer both indoor (open-air warehouse) and outdoor (parking lot + beer garden) options for vendors. Indoor table spaces will be in the brewery warehouse and canning area, which have large roll-up doors open to the outside air. Outdoor booths will be in the brewery parking lot and/or in the beer garden, so please plan accordingly and bring a pop-up tent and weights. 

VENDOR SPACES: Craft vendors can choose to apply for an outdoor 10′ x 10′ booth space ($135) or an indoor 8′ table space ($95). Each applicant may apply for only one space, e.g., a single vendor may not occupy multiple booths or tables. We provide one 8′ x 30″ table for each vendor space, to help streamline load-in. Craft vendors who select outdoor 10′ x 10′ booth spaces may bring their own pop-up tent, no greater than 10′ x 10′, and additional table(s) or displays that will fit within the alotted space. All tents must be anchored securely with weights. Limited spaces are available. If one option is sold out, the organizer may offer you the chance to secure an alternate spot. 

FOOD VENDORS: Food vendors with trucks, trailers, or tents may also apply under the outdoor 10′ x 10′ booth space ($135) category. Smaller scale cottage food vendors may apply for an indoor 8′ table space ($95).

SHARING SPACE: We recognize that for various reasons, vendors sometimes prefer to share spaces. If you wish to share a space with another potential vendor, please email Kim first at glamcraftshow(at)gmail.com.

SELECTION CRITERIA: We always receive more applications than we can accept. Please know that we work hard to strike the right balance of vendors for our shoppers. We favor vendors who make unique, handmade, giftable items that are fresh and unexpected, or even edgy and quirky. We are now also accepting vendors who sell vintage items. However, we do not accept vendors who resell items made entirely by someone else (e.g., imported or wholesale items). To be clear, it’s okay to buy mass-produced T-shirts and screenprint them with your own designs. It’s not okay to buy jewelry or clothing that’s handmade in another country and sell it as your own work. If you think there is any grey area with what you make/sell, be sure to address this on your application and/or send us an email. We also limit the number of vendors who sell within a single category (e.g., jewelry and soaps/bath/beauty). All applicants must submit photos of their work that are representative of what they would offer for sale at GLAM.

NOTIFICATION: All applicants will be notified of their status by Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 11:59 p.m., if not before.

VENDOR FEE: If you are accepted, the producer will retain the vendor fee that you paid. If you are not accepted, the producer will return your payment by Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 11:59 p.m., if not before. Please save your email receipt if you need it for tax purposes — the payee will appear as Sew Make Do, LLC, which is the parent company for GLAM.

SET UP AND BREAKDOWN: Vendor set-up will start at 8:00 a.m. on Dec. 4, and all vendors must have their display set up and ready for customers by 10:00 a.m. Vendors may not begin breaking down their display until the event has ended at 5 p.m. If you break down early, you may not be accepted for future shows.

QUESTIONS: Have questions before you apply? Email Kim Kruse at glamcraftshow@gmail.com. Thanks so much for your interest in making GLAM a diverse and dynamic event!
