How do I apply to be a vendor?
What kind of vendors do you accept?
We’re looking for any and all edible/wearable/loveable/handcrafted/one-of-a-kind items and foods you’ve got. They include but are not limited to specialty foods, silk-screened items, cosmetics, knitwear, jewelry, paper goods, handbags, cards, unique vintage items, and more!
Due to space limitations, vendors will be selected on the basis of quality and uniqueness of wares, as well as to bring together a broad variety of products.
Yes. If you already know the person you'd like to share with, please indicate their name on the application form. If you would like to share a booth but don’t have a partner in mind, the BUST Craftacular team will match you up. All vendors must apply separately and provide individual permits; each vendor will be juried individually.
