Local Artists & Artisans: Apply Now for the 5th Annual Holiday Bizarre Bazaar in Maplewood




From Studio B:

Studio B, a local non-profit arts organization known for producing eclectic, stand-room-only events, will be hosting its 5th annual Holiday Bizarre Bazaar on Sunday, December 3rd from 10am – 4pm.

Applications to participate in the Bazaar are due Saturday, October 21.

“We’ve already received a significant number of applications,” says Marcy Thompson, Studio B Honcho. “More than we had at this time last year.”

“We are thrilled at the caliber of artists who have participated in this event over the past 4 years. It’s a testament to the tremendous creative energy in our communities,” adds Jenny Turner Hall, Studio B Honcho.

In the past, this highly-curated event has featured handmade jewelry, fine art, sewn and knitted textiles, paper goods, quality vintage finds, holiday delights, eclectic evening bags, home décor, handmade clothing and a thousand things beyond description. The only thing that all of these items have in common? They are all 100 percent unique.

Focusing on local artists and artisans, attendance at the Bazaar has grown each year – but the number of artists remains the same: 40. That means competition for a space at the Bazaar is growing.

Here’s how the application process works:

Upon acceptance, participants will submit a $75 dollar table fee, and receive further instructions about Bazaar set up and timing. Studio B does not take a percentage of sales, and the event is free and open to the public.

“Of course we’re looking forward to bringing back our beloved Snowman again this year. This event gives him a chance to bring out his creative side,” says Thompson. “He does not, however, play a part in the decision making process.”
