We were denied exhibiting at this event because we were apparently not homemade, which is not true. However when walking around the venue, we saw at least 3 businesses that were also not home made business. I didn’t realize that signatures was biased on which ‘non homemade’ businesses were allowed to attend? 0/10. Absolutely do not recommend to attempt to exhibit with this crap, they will tell you that you’re not home made business when we literally make our product with our own hands.
I have always enjoyed going to this show as a buyer. Now, as a vendor, it's even better. Getting to know my clients, neighboring artists & artisans and the wonderful handmade products available is a special treat. I hope to showcase my jewellery creations at the Spring & Christmas Originals Shows for many years to come.
Great venue! It was my first time visiting and found some wonderful Canadian artists and placed orders. The opening evening with complimentary appetizers and drinks was a lovely idea. For those who don’t drink alcohol, tea and coffee would be welcomed. The show was extremely well done. Congratulations on a superb event!
Festival of crafts this year was an embarrassment to the name of “festival of crafts” With COVID I know it had to be a bit different but was very disappointing. Ever since Signature shows took over the show has declined. It used to be a very classy show. I used to be an exhibitor with festival for many years ( never with Signature). This will be my last year going to Festival. Art Market is a much classier, nicer show.
A beautiful venue, and well worth the visit! Lots and lots of superb items ... quality throughout. Looking forward to visiting next year! Wish it was a couple of weeks earlier, though, because I need to send gifts overseas ..... :
Too many folks making simple beaded jewelry. It was not a particularly windy day but quite a few vendors chose to have standing displays and I witnessed at least 4 vendors had to pick up their falling over displays!
I went Thursday and had to park at the hospital parkade and paid $15. A high price to pay. Maybe people should have been told that the parking close to the Butterdome was not available Thursday or Friday during the day. Loved the craft sale itself.
Very different from previous show. Missed seeing The greatest little book store, Earcurls but really enjoyed visiting the gentleman with his walnut serving boards and the gorgeous salt & pepper mills also!
A great appearance, Nicely displayed booths, friendly artists, overall great experience. More info out there and shuttle so they know and can come from the CGTA. I definitely want to see this show succeed. Well done! Thank You.
