applications for the first ever Rockford Handmade Market. This event is the brain child of my pal Danielle Kelley, proprietor of Burlap Works. Last year, she participated in the Renegade Holiday Craft Fair in Chicago and wanted to bring the idea of the indie handmade craft show to Rockford.
We're looking for artisans of all types who make high quality and locally crafted handmade goods. It is our intention to bring together a diverse group of artists and crafters that create art, home decor items, jewelry, stationary, toys, candles, soaps, bags, posters, clothing and more.
Rockford Handmade Market will take place on Thursday, December 2nd, from 4-10 pm at the Prairie Street Brewhouse. If you haven't been to the Brewhouse, its a beautiful old space, located right on the river, off of Madison Street, in downtown Rockford. This is going to be a great event!
Vendor applications will be accepted until Friday, October 8th. If you're interested, get a move on it! The application is short and easy and is available here. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
