Here are some FAQ’s from our site and some of the basics of what you need to know about Horseshoe:

When and where is the Market and what are your hours of operation?

The Horseshoe Craft and Flea Market is on Saturday, October 2, 2010 from 8 am-3 pm at 46th and Tennyson behind the Olinger Moore Howard Chapel (4345 W. 46th Avenue, Denver, 80212)

Who can participate?

We are currently accepting applications for the following types of vendors:
 artists, hand crafters, jewelers, designers, and vintage/antique collectors. We are looking for unique, funky goods made (or collected) with great quality.

How big are the spaces and how much do they cost?

Each space is 10 X 10 feet, and $65 per space. Two spaces cost $100 and we have discounts for full time students and Denver Handmade Alliance members.

Is the Market juried?

Yes. We are looking for vendors with unique goods, and folks who take pride in their work, have a sense of professionalism, and are excited about their art, design, craft and/or collecting! If you haven’t done a market, don't fret. We encourage people who have never done a market to apply! Submissions will be reviewed and we will notify you of your acceptance within one week of receiving your application. Our hope is to not have many duplications at the market.

Yes. However both parties must still submit applications and be approved first. When one party makes a payment, please indicate with whom you are sharing a booth.

Do I need any special permits to sell at the Market?

Yes, all exhibitors must be in compliance with state and federal tax laws. Look for an upcoming blog post on this!

What happens if it rains?

The Horseshoe Craft and Flea Market will go on rain or shine!

Is there a place to purchase coffee and food nearby?

Yes, there are many coffee shops and restaurants between 38th and Tennyson. We will also have food and coffee at the Market. Check out more about our great Denver neighborhood where the Market will be held: The Berkeley District.
