​2017 Etsy Craft Party

June 10th, 11am - 5pm

The Primrose Center

2733 S. Ferncreek Avenue, Orlando, Florida  32806


Artists, Handmade Crafters, and Vintage Vendors Welcome! 


The Etsy Craft Party is open to all sellers whose items meet the guidelines for selling on Etsy.  Unfortunately, because of the nature of the event, it is not open to direct sales or non-handmade vendors.  Please email us if you have any questions about this. 


Artists and Handmade Vendors: Vendors who are handmade/artists will be in the largest section of the craft fair.  Your items must be made by you.  It is the seller's responsibility to make sure you are in compliance with sales tax and regulations.  We will do our best to limit similar vendors so that buyers have a variety and sellers to not have very similar items sold by another vendor. 


Vintage Vendors: We welcome vintage sellers to participate in this event!  We hope to have a variety of different vintage vendors.  Since vintage items are unique and typically one-of-a-kind, we welcome your application.  


All Vendors:


With your application, please include a link to a website that displays some of your work that is typical of what you will be bringing to the show. If you do not have a website, please email your photos to candacehelpinghandmade@gmail.com 


The Primrose Center has a wonderful hall with plenty of space, so we hope to fill it.  The first 39 vendors to be accepted will be assigned to 8 foot tables.  After those run out, we will rent 6-foot tables for the remaining vendors, so make sure you get your application in soon for the larger table!  Two chairs will be provided with each table. 



Vendor Fees

  • Indoor, 8-foot table (while supplies last): $45.00
  • Indoor, 8-foot table (while supplies last) with Electricity: $55.00


Discount for Swag Bag Contributers: $10.00 off

To encourage vendors to donate great swag bag items, we are offering $10.00 off your application fee if you include 50 physical items for the bags.  These items must not be coupons or business cards by themselves, but more like mini-gifts for the guests.  In the past we've had vendors contributing items like hair clips, bows, greeting cards, earrings, buttons, stickers of art prints, soap samples, key chains, pendants, and even books.  


This is also a great way to promote your business, attract guests to your booth, and make sure that shoppers do not lose your business card after the event - have it attached to something they want to keep! 


To receive the discount, you must sent a photograph of an example (at least 1) of the items you will be including to candacehelpinghandmade@gmail.com before your payment is due, which is 5 days after you receive your acceptance.  We will also include your provided link to your shop when we use these photos for promotion. 


You are welcome to add coupons, vouchers, discounts, and business cards to the swag bags, even if you are not contributing an item and getting the discount.


Sponsoring Businesses/Corporate Sponsors

Sponsoring Businesses who want to donate to the event but do not qualify for a booth are welcome to contribute.  Helping Handmade will promote your business on our Sponsors Tab on this site, on our event page on Facebook, and will also display business name and logo on our Sponsors banner near the Check-in Tent where guests register for door prizes.  You are also welcome to include flyers or coupons to go in the Swag Bags.  


The fee for a Sponsoring Business/Corporate Sponsors is $60.00.  Remember, this is not a booth fee, but rather a contribution to the Primrose Center that we will promote!
