Winter Wonders Wrap-Up

F&G crew member, Dean of Station Studios, blew us away again with this year's Winter Wonders poster design. It set the tone for the market's theme and d├ęcor.


Other F&G crew member, Maki of Maki Fotos, captured the magic of the market.

































































Winter Wonders 2017 brought in over 2000 shoppers. We attribute the success of this market to the quality of workmanship that our vendors bring, the volunteers who organize and help us run the event, and all the lovely people who continue to support our handmade community. THANK YOU!

Our next scheduled market is Winter Wonders 2018 in December. We will put the call out for vendors in August or September so stay tuned. Happy handmade holidays!

Each application is reviewed for craftsmanship, creativity, originality, type of craft, and product fit. For a detailed description of the jurying process please see the FAQ’s on the blog. Please note that all work must be original and handmade by the artist – kits, importers, or resellers are not acceptable.

There is no access to wifi or electricity at the tables. The hall has an abundance of windows and natural light. Lighting is not an issue in the hall. We encourage everyone who applies to consider how much space that they will need. If you can rearrange your display or  make due with less space please think about applying for a smaller table.
