Please click on the “Gifts 2015 Application” button below and you’ll be directed to our online application page. It will ask you for your email address and then send you an email with your designated application link. You can go in and out of this as much as you like until you click on ‘submit’. If you have any questions or issues with the application, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

A special note to those in the Jewelry Category since it’s usually the first to be filled. Please ensure you apply sooner rather than later as space will be limited.

If you are a vendor who do a variety of work including jewelry, please advise us on what percentage of jewelry you would like to have in your booth (ie. your category is glass with 20/% of it in jewelry). There is a spot on the very first page for you to write notes.

A reminder, the category of soaps and candles are still being accepted this year.

On a personal note, a huge thank you to those of you who took part in Gifts for Myself and Other 2014! It was great to work with you to create such wonderful events and I hope you will consider reapplying for this year! I appreciated all the feedback (the good and bad) as feedback helps me continue to improve upon these events. I am looking forward to hearing from you and creating a successful Gifts for Myself & Others 2015.

Please do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions.

Warm regards,
Jantina, Gifts Show Coordinator
