Spring 2024 Market Guidelines

MARKET INFORMATION

The Boerne Handmade Market is an artisan market, held at the nineteen:ten church in Boerne, Texas. Boerne Handmade Market is a bi-annual market, happening May 3-4, 2024 (you are required to attend both dates).

OUR PROMISE TO YOU

The Boerne Handmade Market is artisan focused and to ensure that each artisan has an audience we maintain a strict cap of no more than 8% of any one “type” of artisan at each market. This puts each artisan into certain categories, such as: children’s clothing items, wall décor, food utensils, food items, adult clothing, jewelry, etc..

This cap allows artisans to maximize sales and provides a more diverse shopping experience for our customers. All artisans retain 100% of their profits and booth sales.

APPLICATION / REGISTRATION & PAYMENT

To be considered fully “registered” and as a candidate for the market you applied for, artisans MUST:

  1. Apply through BHM website.
    Please do not leave any spaces blank, if you leave any spaces blank, your application will not be considered. If you do not have a Facebook page or Instagram, simply put “none” in this space.
  2. Upload at least 4 product photos
  3. Complete payment (vendors not selected to participate will be refunded minus a nonrefundable $25 app fee)
    You will not be considered for jury until all of this is complete.

  • Space is limited to 75-90 artisans, depending on location for that specific market. Booth size as well as price is dependent on that market’s location. For Spring 2024 market, all indoor booths will be 8×8, outdoor booths will be 10×10.
  • Each artisan will be responsible for any tables or chairs that their booth requires. These are not
    provided by our current market location, and thus not available to us.
  • There is electricity available at nineteen:ten. Please bring extension cords and duct tape if you plan to
    use electricity.
  • We do not accept requests for specific locations in the ballroom or outside. We chose locations based
    on products as well as booth appearance. This is why it is important to send a well thought out
    application.
  • Each vendor may only register for ONE booth. Please choose your space wisely. If you change your
    mind on space needed, please send us an email so we can change this and send an invoice or refund if
    necessary. If you register for two booths, you will be automatically refunded one booth fee.
  • By applying to BHM, each vendor agrees to donate 24 coupons for VIP events. These coupons can be
    anything fun that you would also like to receive. A free small item, a free item with purchase, a free treat
    (cookie, sample), % off, a bonus card, etc. Please use this to get new shoppers to your booth and interact
    with them!
  • Our receipt of your application does not guarantee your spot. Boerne Handmade Market is a juried
    market, meaning we will select the artisans that we feel best fit our market and our shoppers.
  • Once selected to participate, you will be notified via welcome letter. Any vendors not accepted will be
    refunded on or before March 1, 2024 (it will sometimes take 10 days for it to reach your account).
    *No refunds will be provided to vendors that are selected to participate past March 10, 2024.
  • Boerne Handmade Market is a rain or shine event, meaning that market will take place regardless of
    weather, unless notified by Boerne Handmade Market otherwise.
