Hi All,
Back in December I had a table at the Punk Rock Flea Market at MassArt in Boston.  I had a great time and was wondering if anyone knew of any similiar events in the Boston/MA area.
Thanks for your help!

Hi twilight021!

I went to the Punk Rock Flea Market so maybe I saw you there. I bought an awesome purse and some really cute dice jewelry and some Dickies ... man I spent way too much money that day!

You should sign up to be on the mailing list for the Bazaar Bizarre:
http://bazaarbizarre.org/aboutus.html

This has been held every year for three years in December but we're hoping to have it a few different times during the year (I just started to help organize it and I've been a vendor twice).

Here's an idea of what kinds of stuff people sell there:

A friend of mine just let me know about this one in Worcester, but apparently they have reached their maximum amount of crafters.  Should be fun to go and shop at anyway, if you are anywhere near Worcester.

SUNDAY, APRIL 18th, 2004 from 12-5

Just thought I'd mention there is a 'bizarre bazaar' thing going on in Western MA, in the Florence/Northampton area, Saturday April 10th. from 4pm-9pm.

More info is here if you click on the little hieroglyphics at the bottom: http://webpages.charter.net/maatkare/strange_child/scpbazaar.html

I'm signed up and even though the page says vendor submission is closed, I'm pretty sure it's still open if anyone is interested.

Ben Sisto (guy behind the Punk Rock Flea Market) recently secured a venue for another PRFM in Oct!

Here's some info from his post about it at honeypump.net:

"$1 door fee this yea to fundraise for the Kirsten Malone young-female artists fund at Mass Art.

$30 to rent a 3x8 foot table from 11am-6pm. No 1/2 tables this year, too much confusion + overrun. If you can only afford 1/2, find a friend."

Nothing about exact location though.  I'll let you know if I see anything else about it.

You can't sign up for the PRFM, because there is no set space or date yet.
Here is the most recent info on it:

I haven't been to the South end open market yet, but they do have a website:

Thanks for the info! I just signed up for the open air market and am waiting for an update on the PRFM!

For anyone interested in shows in  little rhody check out www.craftlandshow.com. to download an application. It is a consignment craft show that runs for 5 weeks in Nov. and December. You send/drop off you stuff , Craftland displays and sells it for you. Consignment arrangement is 60% of retail price goes to artist, 30% goes to cost of running show, and 10% goes to New Urban Arts, a non-profit providing studio space and mentoring for Providence Public High School Teens.  It is a great way to sell your stuff and support a great cause.

So I did the www.southendopenmarket.com this past Sunday. it is a super well organized ad high quality event! The market occurs every Sunday from 10-4 at 540 Harrsion Ave in Boston, Ma. There were about 40 vendors which included funky handmade items by other craftster ladies, a farmer's market, vintage retro flea market items, local restaurants, and home baked doggie treats. It was super hot this past Sunday and I was told that traffic was not as busy as usual. I talked to many of the other regular vendors who have participated in the market 6+ times. They said that they sell enough each Sunday to make it worth coming back weekend after weekend.    A 10x10 space is only $50.00.  I did not ask about booth sharing, but the organizers may be open to it as they are super friendly and want to provide a marketplace for crafty folk.  There is still space available for the markets that are running through the end of October. The young guy who started the market  is super nice and professional. He wants more artsy crafty folk to participate. The weekend of the 18th and 19th the market is open both Sat and Sun as it is the south end open studios www.useaboston.com. Thousands of people are expected to descend to that area and the open air market is smack dab in the middle. My sales were great and I really enjoyed meeting all of the other vendors and the organizers of the event!  There are not many opportunities for crafty folk to bring their items to a hip and happy marketplace, but this is definitely one of them so  spread the word!

I know I'm posting this same letter allover the place like crazy, but I'm just trying to get the word out and trying to make ANT! (Arts'n'Things) even bigger and better than our first two events...



ANT! (Arts'n'Things) is throwing its third event of 2004 at the Worcester Artist Group in beautiful Worcester, MA on Sunday, October 10 from Noon to 5pm.

ANT! is basically a big gathering of all kinds of creative types, showing and selling their creations in the spacious and oh-so-factory/galler-like confines of the WAG. Admission is FREE to the general public. Artists pay a measly $10 for a space at ANT!, provide their own tables, set-up, what-have-you and we've had great turn-outs for the first two ANT!(s)...

WE STILL HAVE ROOM if you want to participate.

PLEASE contact me at doug@dsquared.org and let me know you want IN on ANT!

Check out the ANT! website: http://www.dsquared.org/ant.html

Anyone else doing this or going to shop?  I signed up, because seriously $10? I only have to sell one thing and I make my money back...I'm nervous though because it's my first show where I am actually paying for space!

Is the ANT show public transportation accessible at all? I'd like to go just to see/buy stuff, but alas, I have no car.

well, you'd have to take a commuter rail train to worcester, then its still a couple of miles away.  there might be buses, but i'm not familiar with worcester public transportation.
