BUST Magazine Craftacular

Deadline: July 29, 2013 (ONLINE)

BUST Magazine Craftacular
World Maker Faire New York

New York Hall of Science
Queens, NY
September 21 & 22, 2013

If you are an indie crafter, and your primary intent is to sell your products at Maker Faire, apply to BUST Magazine Craftacular. BUST Magazine Craftacular is an independently curated craft faire held within Maker Faire. Both Commercial Makers and BUST vendors are a part of Maker Faire. BUST Magazine Craftacular is an area dedicated to people who are only selling their wares. Commercial Makers exhibit in various areas of the event, demonstrating what they make and selling as an side-addition to their DIY demonstration; selling is not the focus of their exhibit.

FAQ (truncated)

The BUST Magazine Craftacular is NYC’s best-attended indie craft fair. From knitwear and jewelry to home décor and specialty foods, the BUST Craftacular is the one-stop shop for the very best in handmade gifts and wares. This is the fourth year that the World Maker Faire will host the BUST Magazine Craftacular at their New York event.

To Apply to be a Vendor, complete the application: http://www.bust.com/craftacular/apply-bust-magazine-craftacular-at-world-maker-faire.html

Due to significant 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.

We’re looking for any and all edible/wearable/loveable handmade goods you've got. They include but are not limited to specialty foods, silk-screened items, cosmetics, knitwear, jewelry, paper goods, handbags, shoes, toys, cards and more!

Booth/Table Fee

One full booth fee includes a 10' x 5' space inside a BUST Craftacular tent, as well as 8' x 30" table and two chairs. BUST will provide all tents, tables, and chairs.

If you are sharing a booth, you will split the provided space and table with a partner.

The fee breakdown is as follows:

One day: $250
Two days: $350
One day, shared table: $150 (per vendor)
Two days, shared table: $200 (per vendor)

You will be prompted to pay your booth fee at the time of application. Your application will not be considered unless you have paid the booth fee in its entirety when you apply.

There is no access to electricity or running water in the BUST area of the World Maker Faire. We cannot guarantee reliable wi-fi access, so please plan accordingly. There will be a central charging station available for personal electronics.

Tables can be shared. If you already know the person you'd like to share with, please indicate their name on the application form. All vendors must apply separately and provide individual permits; each vendor will be juried individually.

If you have any specific questions regarding the application, volunteering, or preparing for this event, please contact the Event Coordinator, Maggie Carr, at craftacular@bust.com or 212-675-1707 x 104.
