Etsy is very excited to be partnering with The One of a Kind Show and Sales® in Chicago and New York for the 2010 holidays. As such, we’re putting out the call for artists and crafters to apply for the The Etsy Artist Pavilion for emerging artists. This year’s Etsy Artist Pavilion (and the generous discount) is only available for the Chicago show. We encourage you to apply for the New York show as well, which will be at a smaller venue than last year’s NYC show, but centrally located in Manhattan’s Herald Square for prime holiday shopping traffic.
Have you applied? Deadline for entries is September 15, 2010!
What is this all about, you ask? As a highlighted feature of the Chicago One of a Kind Show, the Etsy Artist Pavilion will feature up to 30 booths for participating Etsy artists and one Etsy booth (to spread the good word). The pavilion is intended as an opportunity for up-and-coming artists to gain access to a highly sought-after and well established brand of shows. Qualified Etsy sellers of handmade items will have the opportunity to exhibit at these holiday shopping events at a discounted rate. To stay to top date and be the first to know when the application’s go live, sign up here.
