About us: We are a small show (about 40 artists) in a supportive neighborhood run by a collective of female artists that have been selling their art, eating, drinking and comparing shoes together for over a dozen years.

Notifications go out September 12th.  

If accepted, a booth fee of $250 is due September 21st, 2016.  If you’ve been accepted and have not paid by that date, we’ll move to the first person on the waitlist. If, for whatever reason, you need to cancel, you will receive a full refund if we are notified of your cancellation before October 15, 2016. You are entitled to a 50% refund between October 15 and December 1 *only if we can fill your space*. If we cannot fill the space, there will be no refund. We cannot offer any refunds after December 1st.

Booths are 6x8.' We have a limited number of corner booths available for an extra $35.  We will let you know upon acceptance if we are able to give you a corner.

All of our booths are in one room with no pesky columns or dungeony dead ends, and PLENTY of light (and have access to electricity for FREE).  We also play cool music on a pretty fantastic sound system (i.e. there is no giant speaker in your face).

Our social media mavens have a great track record of getting the word out in places like The Reader, NPR, Time Out Chicago, and Windy City Live.  We will also have some great signage on CTA platforms, trains, and buses.  Be sure to follow us as we post to our TwitterFacebookInstagram, and Pinterest accounts. In addition to our own efforts, we will supply you with a stack of postcards so you can jump in on the promoting - every bit helps!
