Sell Your Art and Handmade Items. Become a Home for the Holidays Vendor.
The Home for the Holidays Bellingham marketplace is busy and festive. An area tradition since 1981, the market is blessed with long-standing followers who love discovering new craft, art, décor, gourmet food, and jewelry.
Get your holiday season underway with three consecutive days of gift-hungry shoppers. We help you create a memorable shopping experience so new customers can discover the beautiful and delicious handmade items you make. To fuel your sales year-round, we make you easy to find on our website.
The show is three days, but as organizers we prepare all year to help you sell your art, crafts, and goods. Our marketing includes radio, online advertising, and local networking.
Part of the success of Home for the Holidays Bellingham is our commitment to FREE entry Friday and Saturday. The more buyers see your goods the more sales you can make. If you’ve done a few shows you know high entry fees do not always translate into more sales. We remove barriers to entry and create an inviting, jovial experience so that everyone has fun and you sell as much as possible.
For a smooth shopping experience, Home for the Holidays provides a central checkout system and six trained cashiers.
With customers free to choose what they want and move on, you avoid bottlenecks that might turn people away. Instead of running credit cards, you can answer questions, share your story and process, learn more about your customers, and present highlights of your work. This creates an exciting and meaningful buying experience.
Once at home, buyers show-off what they purchased with a story that makes your work memorable.
Home for the Holidays Bellingham provides bags to customers and electricity for vendors. We set up the venue; you set up your booth. The marketplace is warm, comfortable, and family-friendly. Vendors are supportive and help each other out. Our goal is to maximize customer ease so they can enjoy the shopping experience.
Fees include a booth fee and commission. Booths start at $160 for an 8x10. Commission is 22% of your total sales. Our success is tied to yours.
You can apply online. We will review your application and contact you. Each vendor goes through a qualifying process. We prioritize unique and high-quality items.
Home for the Holidays only happens once a year. It is already a local favorite and the new owners are bringing in fresh vendors, expanding the advertising, and building on the family and festive atmosphere.
