alright, I'm seriously considering organizing a craft fair for craftsters in the Toronto area.  First I need to see if there is enough of an interest in this, and second I need suggestions for venues. 

I looked into the north building at St. Lawrence market, but they have strange hours, either 8am - 4pm or 5pm - 1am.  Plus with the farmer's market on saturday it cuts down on availabilty. 

Also my friend had a jewellery launch at The Church at Berkeley and it seemed like a nice place, however i'm not sure about the parking situation, and that can be important for customer traffic.
Any other suggestions?

I would totally be interested.  as for venues, I know the church of craft had a rock and roll craft fair at the gladstone hotel, it was great!  St lawrence market would be good.  I'll think about it and get back to you.

Crafty fun fair in TO would be great!

I am interested but can't fully commit 100% to anything since I work 2 jobs at the moment. But please keep me posted!

As for locations, what about the Distillery District? (too much $$$?) Another option is one of those street festival/sidewalk sales such as the one coming up in BloorWest Village.

i'm not sure about the distillery district, i'm assuming it's too expensive, but they have many different options for venues within the area, so i'll try to look into it some more.
Anyone on this board help with the organization of the one at the Gladstone?  It looks like a cool place, just wondered what the capacity was, how the company was with the idea, were they nice folks?  etc. etc. Smiley

parks we could do... that just means that it would definitely have to be next summer... and if this summer's weather has been any indication that could be a little hit or miss... but it's for sure cheap.  I also looked into community centres, which doesn't limit us weather wise and seems to be just as cheap, but I think that's the kind of thing where Im going to have to go around and scout places to see what they're really like, and then see if they have anything available to rent.  Thanks for the suggestions guys, keep 'em coming

I would also be really interested.  The 'dude' show and others tend to be expensive and exclusive.  Could you rent out a legion hall or something?

Hey me too!
We could make a night of it...get some bands to play and such.  There a lots of venues large and cheap enough I'm sure.  Do like the Ladyfesters (ladyfest.ca) do...maybe they'd be interested in doing a "craftster" night.

yeah, even if it was a big rec room we could decorate it w/cheap fabric or something. also - if you decide to definatly do it, make sure to give us enough notice because it'll take a while to get all ready.

awesome, i'd never heard of the ladyfesters before... looks like they used the gladstone for a venue, so maybe it's not that expensive...

oh, and i'll be sure to give you lots and lots of notice and not just pop up one day and say oh, it's next week.   Grin
