Previously held at Coppes Commons in Nappanee, It's a Wonderful Market has grown its audience over the course of six years through extensive promotional efforts and paid advertising, reaching a wide base of customers locally and regionally.
This is the 6th annual event (year 5 was virtual), and each has grown more successful with thousands of guests attending in previous years. Here are some testimonials from artisans:
"Awesome job! I heard lots of great comments on the varitey & quality of work. Congrats ladies, everyone's booths looked fantastic!"
"You both created such a great event! So many customers raved about it... all because your hard work!
And to all the vendors... you all have such quality products! "
"Thanks for all your hard work putting this together! So many great comments about the quality and mix of vendors and products. You ladies rock!"
. . . and from one of many customers: "This is the coolest Market! Can't wait. It's part of our holiday tradition. Saving up to do my shopping here!"
Booth fee for a 10' x 10' space is $90 for Friday and Saturday and does NOT include tables or any structures. Tables may be rented for an additional fee of $8 each. The event will be held on the second-floor of the building, and we're thrilled to have a large, modern freight/passenger elevator at our disposal at this venue.
THIS IS A JURIED SHOW, which means applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges, and, upon approval of your application, a request for payment will be sent via email. Deadline to apply is October 25, 2021, and final selections will be sent to artists within a week of that date. Sorry, we are unable to ensure everyone's participation earlier than that. Direct Sales vendors and mass-produced products will NOT be accepted. We are looking for fine handmade and vintage products only.
We pride our market on attractiveness of product presentation and marketability, so the photos you submit of your merchandising are very important. We may ask you to adjust your product line or display in order to participate, and all vendors are required to skirt tables with solid-colored, pressed table coverings that reach the floor. Questions or comments may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
