GLAM Craft Show 2016 is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 4. We’re working on returning to the Historic GRU Operations Warehouse in downtown Gainesville. We’ll be releasing the call for vendors soon. Stay tuned here for updates!
Thanks to everyone who came out and made GLAM 2015 a success! We estimated that between 1,200 and 1,500 people attended the show, which is our highest attendance yet.
We’d like to give a special shout-out to all the shoppers, vendors, the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency, Gainesville Regional Utilities, Master Builder Camp, and The Freewheel Project, the food trucks, and Mildred’s Big City Foods for serving beer and wine.
Stay tuned for announcements about GLAM 2016. We typically issue the call for vendors in late summer or early fall. Want to stay in the loop? Join our mailing list.
Want to relive the GLAM 2015 experience? Here’s a quick 45-second look at the show. Hope to see you next year!
This year, GLAM Craft Show will welcome a record 74 vendors who’ll be offering their handmade and locally designed goods just in time for holiday gift giving. We’ve also added a kids’ activity area, food trucks, and beer for sale from Swamp Head Brewery and First Magnitude Brewery.
Best of all admission is FREE! Hope to see you there!

There’s a hint of fall in the air and that means it’s time to start accepting applications for this year’s GLAM Craft Show. The show will take place on Sunday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Historic GRU Operations Warehouse in downtown Gainesville.
We’ve made a few changes in how we’re setting things up this year, so if you’re a repeat applicant, be sure to look over the application form carefully. The biggest change is that all booth spaces will now be outdoors. Booth vendors will have the option to bring their own pop-up tents, if they choose.
The good news for shoppers is that the new venue allows us more room, so we expect to have even more amazing vendors for you to choose from. And that’s a happy thing.
Potential vendors can apply here. Questions? Email Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are working with the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency to bring GLAM to a warehouse in the Power District (see it on a map here). The space has the same cool industrial vibe as the airport hangar and just as much indoor space, plus tons of onsite and nearby parking. It will also be within walking and biking distance for many of you, just like the old days.
There are a few other exciting development we’re working on, but we can’t share the details just yet. In the meantime, we’ll be working with the CRA to get the space cleaned up and ready for the public. It’s going to be great!
The call for vendors will go out this week, so please stay tuned.
It’s only July, but it’s never too early to start thinking about the holidays. Please mark your calendars for GLAM Craft Show 2014 on Sunday, Dec. 7 from 11am-4pm at the historic Mustang Hanger near Gainesville Airport. As always, we’re planning to have food & drinks, music & fun, and of course a great line-up of unique, giftable items from local artists, crafters, and designers. Stay tuned!
If you’re interested in applying to be a vendor at GLAM, the call for vendors will go out in late summer. Sign up for our mailing list using the box on the right or check back here for more information.
GLAM Craft Show will take place this Sunday, December 8 from 11am to 4pm at the Historic Mustang Hangar near Gainesville Regional Airport.
We have 70 vendors who’ll be there selling everything from fun clothes and felted food for kids, to fish-head belt buckles and hand-forged knives for dads.
Some vendors are even offering special deals available only at GLAM.
Have limited time to shop? Order online today through the Thrive Handcrafts website using the code GLAMpickup and you’ll skip shipping costs and have a quick pick-up at GLAM.
Want a personalized gift? Sweetwater Organic Coffee Company will adapt the label for their popular “Good Morning Gainesville” roasted coffee to wish a good morning to anyone you choose, delivered right to their door in time for the holidays.
The DJs from WGOT will also be there spinning tunes, taking donations, and selling t-shirts. They’re also looking for people interested in doing new shows since they’ll soon have a lot more airtime to fill.
And don’t forget — Celebrations Catering will be on hand selling tasty treats, beer, and wine. Where else but GLAM can you can stroll around with your favorite drink in hand while doing your holiday shopping? Certainly not at the mall.
Hope to see you there!
