How Do I Apply?

Thank you for your interest in Scattered Seeds.
Our 2019 Market is full, but we are growing and would love to have you join us! 

Applications will be accepted for the 2020 craft market from Jan 1 - Feb 15, 2020. Hope to hear from you then!

Scattered Seeds is a juried, made-by-hand show which means that your product must be hand made by the exhibitor. (As much as we love small businesses like Norwex, Scenty & Watkins unfortunately they do not qualify.)

You will be juried on the following criteria:

  • Booth – Inviting and creative

    • Product – craftsmanship and current to today’s market

    • Packaging – reflects today’s market

    • Photos, website & social media presence.

SET-UP (Ingress)

Q. Do you provide tables and chairs?
A. Scattered Seeds provides the draping for your booth through Central Display (our draping provider). You will need to provide your own tables and chairs or you can rent them from Central Display.

Central Display rents lots of other items which you may find useful. They will send rental information to you prior to the show and will also be available during set-up. It is strongly advised that you contact them in advance with your request for additional rentals. For more information visit their website at Central Display.

Q.  Do I need to bring lighting for my booth?
A. Yes.  The lights are dimmed and string lighting added creating a festive mood. All you need to do is light your own space which is pretty easy to do.  Your ambient lighting will add atmosphere to your booth and also show your items to their best advantage.  Unleash your creativity and see what a difference lighting can make.

Q.  Can you offer some suggestions for lighting my booth?
A.  If  lighting your booth is something new to you we suggest you keep it simple at the beginning. We found an article that we hope will be useful: Show Lights

Q. Will there be helpers (e.g. to watch my booth when I am in the bathroom) or do I have to arrange my own helpers?
