Your Favorite Vendor from the 2011 Holiday Craft Market!

Posted by Crystal Pepperdine, Founder and Executive Director of Flint Handmade

THANK YOU to the 800+ shoppers who came out for our 5th Annual Holiday Craft Market!  We were OVERWHELMED by the turnout! 

Soooo many shoppers!  It was a full house!

Our vendors had RECORD BREAKING sales! We're still finalizing the official tally, but as of right now, we are at $17,500+ in total sales!!!

Happy shoppers with their goodie bags!

People were lining up just after 9am for our free goodie bags for the first 25 shoppers.  By the time we opened the auditorium doors at 10am, there were about 100 people waiting in the lobby of The Masonic Temple!

We asked all 800+ shoppers to Vote for Their Favorite Vendor!

The votes have been tallied and the top THREE favorite vendors are...

...Heidi of Madge and Gert!

These three vendors each win a $10 Gift Certificate toward Flint Handmade Knuckles Merchandise!

Here are just a few more of our fantastic 50+ vendors:

Liz of Aromaholic

Lindsey of Craftaholic

Amber of Handleber

Leslie (l) of Lydia's Vintage with shopper/volunteer Michelle 

Amy (l) and Ethan of Small Craft with their adorable kids

A special thank you to all of the vendors and shoppers who became founding members of Flint Handmade!

We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2012 Spring Craft Market!  The online application will be posted in February.  Keep checking our blog for more details. :)

  1. I am very glad that i went Friday (advantage of being a member of FH) and had a relaxing experience shopping. However, i am going to one of the first in line next year to get a goodie bag with those fantastic coupons to use at the holiday craft market. Great event looking forward to it next year.
