Thank you for taking the time to apply for this fabulous St. Pete Craft Heroes event! The St. Pete
Craft Heroes are a HUGE supporter of non-profit organizations in our community and are on a
mission to support the DIY Craft Movement. Please be sure you have thoroughly completed the
vendor application and have read the event details including the liability release. Be sure to
indicate on your application if you desire to share a space with another vendor and have your
partner do the same. APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MONDAY AUGUST 3, 2009
The Location: The Studio @ 620 is a local visual and performing arts non-profit located in the
heart of St. Petersburg's creative community. As a membership based organization, The Studio has
a large and dedicated audience who share an enthusiasm for the arts. Holizaar Deux will be the
second annual holiday bazaar to be held at The Studio @ 620. Because the 2008 Holizaar event
was such a success it has been expanded to a two day show for 2009. The Studio is a
warm and generous place with a history of supporting all genres of creativity from painting to
poetry. A large portion of vendor registration fees for this event are donated to The Studio to
help them continue their programmatic work in St. Petersburg.
You can learn more about them at www.studio620.org
Helpful Hint: You may want to review images posted on the Craft Heroes website,
www.craftheroes.com, to get an idea for the types of vendor displays and styles of products that
have been exhibited during past events. While the Craft Heroes are always looking for new vendors
with fresh creations, there is also a certain "flavor" that has come to be the standard at Craft Heroes
events. A quick check of past shows may help you know if you're on the right track.
Now What? The St. Pete Craft Heroes events are fun and for that reason many vendor
applications will be submitted, far more than the event location can accommodate. Please be aware
that spaces are NOT assigned on a first come first served basis, so if you're applying close to the
deadline you are not out of luck. Vendors are selected based on creativity of display, type
of product, and quality of work. Keep in mind that some product categories fill quickly, such as
jewelry for example, because many artisans work in that medium.
Please be patient! The Craft Heroes are vendors too and they know the suspense can be
agonizing wondering and waiting to see if you've been accepted into a show. You will receive a
brief email confirming your status either way within 3 weeks of the application deadline. Be aware
that once accepted into the show there are no refunds of registration fees and no transfer of
space assignment to another vendor. As the event date draws closer additional set up and show
information will be distributed to all confirmed vendors.
Later on: If at some point you determine you cannot participate, notify The Craft Heroes
immediately. Customers have come to expect a professional event with excellent selection so
it is vital to everyone's success that all vendor spots are filled on the day of the show. This is
what keeps shoppers coming back again and again and it directly impacts YOUR SALES!
Help us to put our best foot forward.
