2024 Solon Spring & Shop Handmade Market Contract Submission 

Calling all local handmade artisan and crafter vendors! The Solon Spring & Shop Handmade Market is seeking local vendors to showcase and sell your goods and items this upcoming spring! 

Be sure to submit your completed Application and Show Contract, along with your fee, as soon as possible to guarantee your space at this year’s event. Space is limited; vendors will be given priority on a first-come, first-serve basis based upon review of work. 

All of our Avant-Garde Art & Craft Shows are promoted heavily through advertising in local papers, online event listings, our web site/blog, outdoor advertising, and social media (links can be found on bottom of the page!)

BASE COST, ADDITIONAL FEES, & HOW TO PAY:

To exhibit all vendors are required to have a transient vendor’s license (it costs $25.00 to obtain one) this allows you to sell at a public venue, and the city does come and inspect frequently. A copy of your vendor’s license is due at the latest, the Monday before the event (you can still send in your app with payment while you await the license to arrive). You can find the form to obtain a license here.

Before selecting your booth size below, please visit our VENDOR PORTAL (same password used to get into the application portal here) and see if your preferred booth size is still available.

 

Once certain size booths sell out, we do remove them from the vendor portal if they are no longer available.

 

Be sure the booth size you select below matches the booth size that's available and that you'll be purchasing once you finish your application.
