Christmas Craft Market in the Glebe 2016

We wanted to go BIG for Christmas 2016. It was our first holiday market and we wanted to build the opportunity for shoppers to find all of their favourite makers in one central location over two days. 

As the application process winded down, we found ourselves giggling like school girls. The pool of applicants was so talented, established, and we knew that these were the makers that shoppers wanted to see. 

This was our first market outside of our Makerspace North partnerships. It was part me wanting to host in a different location, part wanting to create something in a new neighbourhood and to feed off of the history that the exquisite Glebe Community Centre has in our craft community. 

Part of my learning curve was this market- we put in 7 months of long, hard planning. It was our first two day market. We had 100 makers that joined us for this festive Holiday market. Maker Santa hosted giveaways as we welcomed shoppers in. Overall hundreds and hundreds of people came out to shop the high-quality goods to put under the tree.
