Michigan Crafters Marketplace

Events began as an opportunity for all artists, crafters, designers, entrepreneurs in Michigan to have a regular opportunity to present and sell their products.  There are thousands of craft shows every year at: church's, schools, community centers and other locations.  Thousands of shoppers do not go to these locations every day of the year to spend money.  Events at Oakland Mall in Troy, MI and Laurel Park Place in Livonia, MI allow local crafters to sell in the middle of the mall.  All shoppers must walk by every vendors table.  No one is in the corner.

There are thousands of crafters in Michigan.  My grandfather did stained glass, ceramics, he had his own kiln.  What do you make?
Many crafters homes are filled with their unique art and creations.  All my family, cousins, aunts, uncles all had many examples of my grandfathers craft projects.

Many crafters need an outlet to sell their products and fund to make new items.  Michigan Crafters Marketplace is your opportunity to exhibit and sell your art, crafts, designs and more in the middle of 2 of Michigan's best malls.

A professionally organized event.  All exhibitors have matching tables, cloths, chairs.  No other fixtures or table cloths permitted.  This is not a flea market and must maintain a professional, organized look.  Events now in 5th year.

Laurel Park Place in Livonia, MI, now in 4th year had 2 other craft shows for several years.  Not anymore.  This event began there in 2013 and all other craft events have been cancelled.  Laurel Park Place in Livonia is an upscale shopping center with several stores not in other malls.  Also, Laurel Park Place reports shoppers average income over $93,000.  National average household income over $54,000.  Laurel Park Place is over 75% female shoppers.  Several hair salons, nail salons, waxing, massage.

Oakland Mall in Troy, MI has never allowed craft shows in 50 years!  MichiganCraftersMarketplace began in 2013 and now in 4th year here.  Dates for 2017 have been confirmed.  Reserve a table to exhibit and sell at Oakland Mall.  Mall reports over 3 million shoppers every year.

Saturday is busiest shopping day of the year.  Shoppers expect sales.  SaturdaySuperSale.com
These events held during cold weather months, October & March.  Mall traffic increases significantly during cold weather, rain and snow!

Do you know other artists, crafters, designers, entrepreneurs, micro-enterprises?   Bring a friend save money 2 tables $160.

Everyone wants FREE LUNCH.  FREE LUNCH BINGO, 30 gift cards to mall restaurants for shoppers at every event.  No purchase required.
Each exhibitor has a bingo card with their name and 20 bingo numbers posted front of their table.  Each exhibitor is provided tickets with six digit numbers to pass out to every person in the mall.  This is a great way to get people to stop at your table.  Give out tickets, tell every shopper to look for matching number on bingo cards posted front of all tables.  Shoppers will collect hand fulls of tickets and stop at every table to find matching number.  When they find matching number, shopper shouts out: "BINGO!  I WON FREE LUNCH".   All exhibitors clap and everyone in the mall walks over to that vendors table to see what is going on.  This is a very fun and successful way to get shoppers to look at your table.
