The answer is no.

Just recieved this from the folks at Crafty Wonderland:


Thank you for applying!
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for applying to Crafty Wonderland’s Super Colossal Holiday Sale. We are incredibly sorry, but we are not able to offer you a booth at this time. This year was by far the toughest yet – we had more amazing applicants than ever before! Even after we had narrowed the field to our very favorites, we were still about 100 vendors over capacity. This meant we had to make some incredibly difficult eliminations. The decisions were so hard that we ended up turning to a random lottery system in order to make the difficult final cuts.
We had to say no to friends, regulars, vendors who currently sell in our retail shop and amazing new talent. This is by far the hardest and most gut wrenching part of what we do and we hope you can understand our position. Please don’t take our decisions personally! Keep crafting and keep being amazing!
While we don’t have a waiting list, we do keep your information on file. In the event of a cancellation, we will look through our pool of applicants to find an appropriate replacement to fill the opening. Thanks again for taking the time to apply. We are continually amazed and overwhelmed by the number of talented people out there!

Suuuuuuuuper bummed.  But there is always next year.  And I will definitely keep on crafting.  My husband/web designer is helping get my online store built so look for that coming hopefully very soon, in time for holiday shopping is my goal!

  • Kira says:

    Ugh, dang it! They need to find a larger facility to hold this thing! Are you going to look for other holiday craft fairs to do?

  • Melissa says:

    Thanks girls! Yes, I have looked into a few. I emailed the person in charge of the one at Mtn View High in November. And my Mom said they do a big one at Legacy Emanuel each year, she’s going to look into that for me.
