Interested in being a vendor at a Creatively Lancaster Makers Market? Great! You're in the right place.

Before you apply, please take a moment to review the info below about who we are (and are not) looking for and what to expect as a market vendor.


WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

We're looking for makers of all kinds - crafters, bakers, upcyclers, artists, sculptors, painters, musicians, inventors, etc. If you make anything, you could be a vendor! More specifically, if you use the following words to describe your business, we're looking for you:

  • Handcrafted

  • Unique

  • One-of-a-kind

  • Small-batch, small-scale

  • Artisan

  • Quality

  • Professional

  • Etsy Shop Owner

  • Micro-business, Micro-enterprise or Start-up

The Makers Market is a curated show. Though we love makers of all kinds, unfortunately we cannot accept all applicants due to space constraints. We do our best to select a diverse group of quality makers at each event. Acceptance into previous shows does not guarantee acceptance to future shows.


WHO WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR:

If you use the following words to describe your business, unfortunately this is not the market for you:

  • Reseller

  • Direct Sales

  • Vintage Vendor (Sorry vintage vendor friends! We love vintage but being a Maker's Market, we can only accept makers. No resellers of any kind. If you're interested in other local shows accepting vintage vendors, please email us! We're happy to give you a list of our favs.)

In addition, we do not allow unprofessionalism, negativity, political paraphernalia, or illegal items/sentiments. We are a community of makers who support and encourage one another. As such, we will fiercely protect our community from any person(s) whose attitude is uncooperative, unsupportive, aggressive, demeaning, or degrading. Don't be that person. 


WHAT TO EXPECT

As a vendor at the Makers Market expect to connect with a community of like-minded creatives and an enthusiastic customer base excited to shop your wares! 

Vendors are responsible for providing all the necessary elements for their display (tables, chairs, and a trash can, if you are a food vendor). Electric and WIFI are not guaranteed and dependent on venue availability.

Cork Factory UNVEILED
+ Creatively Lancaster BRIDAL MARKET

march 23 | 9 AM - 4 PM

Cork factory hotel

Unveiled bridal market

ABOUT the bridal market

This is not your typical wedding show - it's a bridal event for the modern bride. Brides and grooms can shop from 20+ of the very best local makers with gorgeous details to make their big day truly spectacular. They’ll also be able to take a self-guided tour of the stunning event spaces at Cork Factory Hotel, grab a treat from The Bakers Table, snag a picture at our selfie station, and more!

Do you want to get your products/services in front of local brides and grooms, but don't want to pay those hefty fees to be in a traditional wedding show? This market may be perfect for you!

WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR

This will be an intimate market of 20 vendors with product offerings catered specifically to the modern bride. Brides and grooms may purchase items at the market, but primarily this will be an opportunity to showcase your wedding offerings in person, explain your wedding packages, hand out information/samples, and take custom order requests.

If you make any of the following wedding-related items, you may be a good fit for this Bridal Market:

  • Invitation design

  • Wedding decor/signs

  • Unique wedding favors

  • Floral design

  • Jewelry/Accessories (catered toward bridal parties)

As always, all items must be handmade.
