Holiday Mart Application

We are excited to host our annual Holiday Mart this December! Holiday Mart is a pop-up shop comprised of dozens of artists who feature a wide variety of handcrafted items. This year we will offer in-person sales as we transform our Sweetwater Community Room in a beautiful pop-up boutique!

We are currently looking for artists who craft handmade gifts in ceramics, fiber art, wood, metal, paper, glass, and fine art, as well as holiday themed gifts, gifts for children, and edibles.

Holiday Mart is organized and run by staff and our wonderful volunteers, creating a large holiday pop-up boutique style shopping experience. Artists inventory and drop off their items, and we take it from there. We display and sell the items, organize corresponding events, and handle taxes. Artist do not have to attend the sale. At the close of Holiday Mart, artists return to pick up any remaining items.

This sale model offers artists the opportunity to participate in other sales during this busy buying season, as well as the ability to sell work in a seasonal sale without large inventory.

All new and returning artists must apply through this webpage.
