Update: The Niagara Holiday Market Etsy Studio vendors have been selected! Take a look at the roster right here.

____

Imagine this: Thirty-seven days of handmade market goodness, holiday cheer, and spectacular events, all with Niagara Falls looming majestically in the background. Welcome, my friends, to the Niagara Holiday Market. Alongside one of the Wonders of the World, the market is a grand seasonal destination inspired by the majesty of European shopping arcades and cityscapes, and Etsy is excited to be part of the fun.

This year’s market will host a section devoted exclusively to Etsy sellers. Dubbed the Etsy Studio, this area will showcase regional craftspeople and feature a collection of artisans in a shared space, staffed collectively. Plans are underway for special events in the space; come “meet the artist” and participate in an Etsy Lab activity.

The Niagara Holiday Market will be open from Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving) through New Year’s Day. The market will feature retail shopping, live entertainment, community events, ice skating and other activities made possible by the magic of winter. The event will take place along Old Falls Street in downtown Niagara Falls.

Here is the application for Etsy sellers interested in vending at the Etsy Studio; learn more about the opportunity here. For more information about The Niagara Holiday Market you can contact their Merchant’s Concierge, Erin Reedy, by emailing info@niagaramarket.com.

    I'm so glad to hear such positive feedback! The Niagara Holiday Market is really excited to be partnering Etsy and its talented artists. To elaborate more on the Etsy Studio, it will be an enclosed tent that is highly-themed, decorated and branded around the Etsy experience. Each artist will be featured in a selling space of approximately a 10x10. In order to best accommodate the busy schedules of artists, it will be run as a Co-op. All artists will take 4 shifts of 4 hours each during the event, in rotation. Please feel free to email me any questions at info (at) niagaramarket (dot) com.

    ExclusiefByVera says:

    This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your work Etsians. Much less expensive than many other major shows at that time of year. Wonderful idea to run the NF show as a co-op which will be much easier on individual artisans than being present for 11 days, 10 hours a day at the big TO Show. So work hard, build your stock, your wares need to look good at the beginning of the show, throughout the show and on the last day. That's only fair to the customers who has traveled to see you all. I plan to visit and see all your wonderful hand made items. Good luck on having a fabulous, profitable show.

    I stopped down yesterday (Nov.25, 2011) late afternoon to see what was going on and dispite the continued building of stalls (enclosed sheds) and and other vendors still setting up the Etsy booth was up and running. Looking Good! Nice choice of Local Etsy Vendors. Wish I had been ready for this, maybe next year. I think I'll stop by now and then and report back here with any information I have to share. MIKE
