Spring 2012 Marketplace :: May 6

Alright…2012 is here and it’s time to get ready for a Spring Marketplace!

The 2012 Spring Homespun Chic Marketplace will include approximately 45 vendors and feature the best handmade retail that Central Florida has to offer. The event will be held on Sunday, May 6 from 2:00pm to 6:00pm at Home Builders Association of Metro Orlando in Maitland. The Marketplace will be held rain or shine.

If you’re interested in being a vendor, please contact us or leave a comment here with your email address. We’ll be happy to email you the details, instructions, etc as well as a layout of the building and porch. As spots are paid for, approved and taken, we will designate that appropriately on the map.

Previous vendors will benefit from a lower rate for space. New vendors will pay a higher rate for their first show with us and will also need to submit 3 photos of their work to a review panel.

All reservations will be considered in the order they are received–first applied, first approved, first paid. Although previous vendors will not need to be considered by the review panel, they will not receive preference over new vendors. Space will be filled on a first applied, first approved, first paid basis.

Other fun tidbits:

  • Once again, we’ll offer a way for folks to win gift certificates to be spent at the Marketplace. Details will be posted right here on our site.
  • We are working to secure two or three of Central Florida’s popular food trucks to sell yummy treats just outside the venue. We’ll announce those as they confirm with us.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please let us know! Feel free to share this with other handmade artisans that you know. We’re looking forward to partnering with you to bring the best of handmade retail to Central Florida through Homespun Chic Marketplace!
