2018 Artisan Marketplace Application

2018 Exhibitor Application: Alternative Shows

Fields marked with a * are required

All the New England Home Shows are promoted by Rich Castiglione. Craftproducers assists by coordinating the exhibitors for the newly renamed Artisan Marketplace. We changed the name to reinforce to the public that you are there to sell. Rich promised more vigorous promotion of the art/craft/specialty food products in 2018. We anticipate better results this season. While all shows are risky, exhibitors with mailing lists in these markets generally have superior sales.

Artisan Marketplace at the New England Home Show - February 9, 10, & 11
Marlborough, MA

This is the first year here for a New England Home Show. It is expected that art/craft/specialty food exhibitors will benefit from the highly regarded craft show held twice a year at the same facility. This is a great winter opportunity. There will be two unique aisles with 40 booths for the Artisan Marketplace.

Saratoga County Fairgrounds
162 Prospect St
Ballston Spa, NY

Although the show is somewhat weather dependent, we are creating a Rib and BBQ component to draw the public even if it’s not a perfect day for balloons. We are confident of bringing in a larger crowd which should translate into more sales. While the audience a not a typical craft fair clientele, 10,000 -15,000 is nothing to dismiss. Sales are usually stronger for items perceived as a “good buy.” Costume jewelry, wines and spirits, and specialty foods sell well.
