We're taking over downtown Akron for another amazing Small Business Saturday (and Sunday, too)! Crafty Mart will be hosting vendors at our very own headquarters this year, in a place called The Bounce Innovation Hub.
A quick note about judging: Crafty Mart is a juried show. A panel of judges decide on which vendors will be accepted. We only accept handmade items and leans towards idiosyncratic items that are carefully constructed. The process has become drastically more competitive in the last few years. Crafty Mart tends to favor Akron-area artists, but strives to include at least 25% new vendors and at least 10% from out of town who can bring something new and different to our fine city. We also only accept no more than 25% jewelry vendors. Our goal is to provide a wide variety of options and price points to attract all types of people to our events and offer our shoppers a variety.
Unfortunately, the application fee is not refundable if you are not accepted, and you must pay a new vendor's fee each time you apply for Crafty Mart. The application process has become increasingly competitive in the past few years and it takes time to go through everyone's applications and emails.
