Looking for a Few Good Youth Vendors.

Almost sold out!

Although there was no general vendor call for the upcoming, first-ever City of Craft Spring show (vendors were invited from the Winter 2011 waiting list), we do have a few very special spots to fill. With this Spring show being all about first-evers, we will be supporting a brand new initiative: a special section for vendors 14 and under! Yup, we are creating space for the plucky upstart youngsters who will someday supplant us.

4ft of table space
$40 ($41.50 incl. payment fees)

For this event, we have an incredibly limited number of spots (8) and have no idea what the response will be, so get those emails in quickly (but make sure to fill out all questions). Don't worry, if the response is huge we will see what we can do about making youth opportunities again in the near future.

We really look forward to seeing what everyone is making!

We would really like to thank our friends at Crafty Wonderland in Portland, Oregon, for inspiring us to this and for providing guidance. If you are ever in the Portland area, you should check them out!
