Vendor Selection

Handmade Holiday is a juried market. Each application is reviewed by a committee that votes on each application. For the 2024 Handmade Holiday market, our committee will use a scoring system to help evaluate applications based on factors such as craftsmanship, creativity, and presentation.

Due to limited space and an increase in vendor applications, participation in previous Handmade Holiday markets does not guarantee your acceptance into this market.

To make your application stand out, we recommend that you take your time to thoroughly answer each question and provide high-quality, high-resolution photos that show off the products you plan to sell at Handmade Holiday.
