We started GLAM a decade ago because we wanted to create a safe space where interested local shoppers could connect with artists, crafters, and makers. This core mission remains the same today.
So this year we are offering two options to shop local:
online from Thanksgiving Day through Dec. 13 (details coming soon)
in person at First Magnitude Brewing Company on December 6 from 10am-5pm
We are striving to make this year’s in-person event as safe as possible during the current COVID-19 era.
Vendors and shoppers must wear face coverings, and groups are expected to maintain physical distance between each other. Vendors will be spread out throughout the open-air warehouse and gravel parking lot. Folks who wish to eat and drink can grab a seat on the beer deck or in the beer garden.
Thank you for your help in making this event a safe event for all, and for your continued interest in supporting local artists, crafters, and makers!
Come one, come all to the second spring edition of GLAM Craft Show! Once again, we’ll be at the historic Cypress & Grove Brewing Company, right in the heart of Gainesville.
Interested in being a vendor? Great! We’d love to have you apply here.
We are looking for vendors whose work is unexpected, irreverent, and eye-catching. Most importantly, we try to keep the majority of what’s offered at the show within a giftable price range. This way, shoppers can stock up on gifts for their favorite moms, dads, and grads.
We hope you can come by to shop, sip a pint, savor some food, and bask in the beauty of springtime in Gainesville.
Come join the fun and festivities on Sunday, Dec. 8 from 10am-5pm when First Magnitude Brewing welcomes us back for another winter edition of GLAM!
Shop from these makers and many more, including ceramicists, screen printers, jewelry designers, blacksmiths, quilters, jam makers, and even beekeepers. You’ll also be able to purchase and enjoy cold drafts on tap and hot food from local food trucks. We’ll even have a gift wrapping station.
Ride your bike or catch a Lyft or Uber. Or drive over and park in the Depot Park overflow lot (see map), where you can catch a free shuttle.
As always we’ll have a well-curated selection of artisan gifts from makers here in Gainesville and beyond, just in time for your Mother’s Day and UF graduation gift-giving needs. You can view the list of vendors here.
The Cypress & Grove tap room will be open pouring beers, house-made seltzer and sodas, wine, and kombucha. We’ll also have food trucks to help keep you fed.
Admission is free. Ride your bike or drive and park in one of the marked areas on the map. Hope to see you there!
Cilantro Tacos, Mayflower Cellars, and Humble Wood Fire will keep you fed, plus enjoy drinks and sweets from Sweetwater Organic Coffee, Wellspring Kombucha, The Flour Pot Bakery, and Endless Summer Ice Cream. And of course First Magnitude’s tap room will be open (which includes wine on tap, for you wine lovers).
Park in the Depot Park overflow lots, shown on this handy parking map. Then once you park, walk over or catch a free shuttle ride to the show.
Admission is FREE. Show runs from 10am to 5pm on Sunday, Dec. 2 at First Magnitude, 1220 SE Veitch Street in Gainesville. See you there!

Calling all artists, makers, and crafters! We are now accepting applications for the 10th edition of GLAM Craft Show, which will be held at First Magnitude Brewery on Sunday, Dec. 2 from 10am to 5pm.
We favor vendors who make unique, handmade, giftable items that are fresh and unexpected, or even edgy and quirky. Vendors who make items for guys, kids, and pets are especially encouraged to apply. Competition for jewelry and bath/body makers is especially intense, given the number of applications we receive in those categories.
Like last year, we have several different options for vendors — an 8′ x 3′ table space in the warehouse, an 8′ x 3′ table space in the beer garden, or a 10′ x 10′ booth space either in the beer garden or in the gravel parking lot (BYOT — bring your own tent). We always receive more applicants than we have room to accept. Because of this, we can’t guarantee that admitted vendors will receive their first choice spots, but we will do our best to find a suitable spot.
This year we are partnering with a local start-up company called Sift Local to manage our application process. The Sift Local platform was designed specifically for artists and makers and is already gaining traction in the maker community, so be sure to check it out.
Deadline to apply is Sunday, Sept. 30 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
Mark your calendars for Sunday, Dec. 2 when GLAM Craft Show will celebrate its TENTH year of bringing great handmade gifts your way right in time for the holidays!
Once again we’ll be hosting the show at First Magnitude Brewery, so a big thank you to our friends there for inviting us back. By popular demand, we’re extending this year’s show so that it will run from 10am to 5pm.
The Gainesville Downtown Festival & Art Show (aka the Fall Arts Festival) is taking place that same weekend, so we’ll also be offering FREE shuttle rides between downtown and the brewery to make it easy for you to bring friends and family. We’ll announce more details as the date draws closer.
Vendor applications will launch soon, so stay tuned to our applications page for more information if you are interested in applying to be a vendor.
