Last Call for Discounted Horseshoe Booths!

There's some important and cool stuff going on in the world of handmade and craft and today we want to spread the word about those things! First of all, though, it's last call for discounted Horseshoe booths!!! Monday is the last day you can apply to one, two or three Horseshoe Markets and get a discount! If you apply to any of the Horseshoe Markets and get in, you will receive a discounted booth price ($75 versus $100 for a 10X10 booth). Take advantage of this great deal! DHA members get an even better discount--$60 per booth!

We have been pleasantly overwhelmed with applications and are currently processing applications. If you apply on or before February 14th, you will find out your application status (acceptance/decline) by March 1st, 2011. We are so excited by all of the amazing applications we've been getting and we're going to have three awesome, rockin' markets!!!

Also, if you are not a vendor, make sure you mark your calendars for the markets--Saturdays, May 7th, August 6th and October 1st from 9 am-4 pm at 46th and Tennyson in the parking lot behind Olinger, Moore, Howard Chapel.

Some other cool things we've seen around the web--this one via Denver Handmade Alliance. How awesome is this??!!


A new crafty video hub has arrived! is a new multimedia website for all crafty goodness – and it’s starting right here in Denver! It will feature a new artist, bio video, and product giveaway each month, along with how to videos, craft projects, featurettes, and much more. Our goal is to not only build and promote the Denver handmade community, but to create a place for handmade enthusiasts around the nation to log on and find inspiration for their next project.

We are now taking applications to be one of our featured artists!

What does being a featured artist mean? Front page visibility with an interview, 1 – 2 minute bio video, professional photo, write up, and a link to your website. This video will also be linked to the Denver Handmade Alliance, Facebook, and YouTube accounts – now that is a lot of exposure! All for the low price tag of a few product donations!

(Nervous about being on video? Don’t be! Crafty Peep Show has rounded up a team of award winning videographers and editors with an array of concepts from up close and personal to artsy and mysterious.. all you have to do is relax and be your wonderful self!).

And finally, via DonnaDiddit, we found this spectacular site, Quite Unique. It's almost like a GroupOn for crafty people! They feature one handpicked item per day at a great value. Each item purchased comes from a small producer who utilizes unusual materials or techniques, or who has an interesting back-story to their company.

Because they get their products from small producers, their quantities are limited. Their unique features sell out fast and once the item is gone, it's gone. Sign up as a member to receive daily email alerts when a new feature/product becomes available.

If you make unique goods and are interested in being featured on Quite Unique, go to their vendor page for more information.


If you know of any other great things going on out there, post in our comments! Have a great weekend, everybody! Enjoy the sunshine...
