Handmade & Vintage Summer Market calls for Artists, Makers and traders

The organiser of the Handmade & Vintage Summer Market - offering locally made goods side by side with "how to" talks and more - is inviting applications from artists, makers, designers and vintage traders who are interested in taking a stall.

The Handmade & Vintage Market is organised by Suzy Jones, an independent curator and  maker based in Lancaster.

Taking place in the Storey, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster on 22nd June 2013 the summer market follows on the success of a festive market Suzy says has become very successful with approximately 1000 visitors and a bunch of very happy sellers.

"To build on this success we are delivering our first summer market supported by a professional development programme," she says, "including a masterclass by the organisers of the award winning Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair.

"As usual this will be a curated fair ensuring high quality and a broad offer to our visitors, and a chance for stall holders to meet like minded people, learn new things and share knowledge.

Stalls cost £38 each.

You can also take this opportunity to apply early for the Handmade & Vintage Festive Market which this year will take place over two days Saturday 7 and Sunday 8th December.

The stall fee is £75 for the two days (which includes a six foot table and one chair). Please tick the appropriate box on the application form to be considered for both the summer and festive event.

To apply you will need to complete an application form and send five images of your work. Here is a link to the online application form:

The deadline for applications is 5.00pm, Friday 3rd May. For more details please contact Suzy Jones by emailing
