Curated vibes.

Christina Terry is an absolute professional and has a true passion when it comes to artists and helping them sell their creations. If you find yourself in a situation like mine please DO NOT hesitate to give it a shot! You will find an instant family! Christina is down to Earth and even coached me on a couple of things over the phone 2 weeks before the show.. Christina is truly Mother Vibe and her mission set me in a new direction, I’m a market seller for life now! All us artists need a Christina in our lives to give us a good creative shove and a big hug! PLEASE APPLY, it’s fun!

Christina who is the owner of VIBE is a superstar host with a relentless work ethic to ensure that all market participants (host, customers, vendors) benefit from a successful event! Our company did over 45 markets in the last few months and there is a clear divide between market organizers who know how to run a successful show and those who don't. We've ruthlessly cut off those who host events that don't serve us and VIBE Artisan Markets has become one of our top choices.

Christina does a fantastic job with these markets and I cannot say enough good things about it! Her markets are my favorite to be a part of by far. I am a vendor in the Austin area and sign up for as many of her Austin markets as I possibly can. From a vendor perspective, the markets are amazing. From a shopper perspective, the markets are amazing! Be sure to come check them out for yourself!

So happy to be part of this wonderful vendor community here at VAM everyone is so friendly and supportive of each other. The locations, organization and turn out are awesome. Thank you Christina for the hard work and organization that you put into the markets! Looking forward to the next market!

Love this organization! I've been on both sides of the market, I am owner of @houseofhnagsphotography & recently was a part of the Valentine’s market in Kingwood where Christina was an awesome host who genuinely cares about all of the small businesses in the markets. She was super sweet & made me feel so welcomed. As a customer of the market I’ve always walked away with so many local creations and met incredible artists. Would recommend being a part of this market if you have a small business & would definitely recommend spending a day at the market. It’s so much fun on both sides!

What is the application process?

At Vibe Artisan Markets, we take great care in curating our marketplace to ensure that we offer our customers a diverse selection of high-quality, handmade products. Our curation process involves a thorough evaluation of each artisan and their products to maintain the integrity and excellence of our marketplace. Here’s an overview of how our art market is juried:

  1. Application Review: Artisans interested in joining our marketplace begin by submitting an application through our website. This application typically includes information about the artisan’s background, the types of products they create, their production process, and any relevant images or portfolio samples.
  2. Evaluation Criteria: Our team of jurors carefully reviews each application against a set of predefined criteria. These criteria may include the quality of craftsmanship, uniqueness and originality of the products, adherence to our values (such as sustainability and ethical production practices), market demand, and overall fit with our marketplace aesthetic.
  3. Product Sampling: In some cases, we may request samples of the artisan’s products for further evaluation. This allows us to assess the quality, design, and craftsmanship firsthand and ensure that they meet our standards.
  4. Selection Process: After reviewing applications and product samples, our jurors deliberate to select artisans whose work aligns closely with our marketplace vision and standards. We aim to create a diverse and well-rounded collection of products that appeal to a wide range of customers while maintaining a high level of quality and craftsmanship.
  5. Notification and Onboarding: Artisans whose applications are successful are notified of their acceptance into Vibe Artisan Markets. They then complete the onboarding process, which includes filling out a PDF Market Form, submitting payment, and agreeing to our terms and conditions.
  6. Ongoing Evaluation: Our juried process is ongoing, and we continuously monitor the performance of artisans and their products in our marketplace. Artisans are expected to uphold our standards of quality and craftsmanship, and we may periodically review their listings to ensure they continue to meet our criteria.

By employing a juried process, we ensure that Vibe Artisan Markets maintains its reputation for excellence and offers customers a curated selection of exceptional handmade products. We’re committed to supporting talented artisans and providing them with a platform to showcase their work to a broader audience.

Wasn’t selected? Please don’t give up. We always encourage re-submitting for other dates/events of ours!

Is there an application fee?

There are no application fees for 2024.

PLEASE NOTE: In 2025 as we shift our focus to only curating 2-day art-centric market events in major cities across the US, the will implement a nominal Application Fee as well as a strict juried market.

How long will it take to hear back if I’m approved?

You will receive an email back from our curatorial team within 7 business days with the status of your application.

How do you jury for your markets?

We take pride in the curation of our events and take a non-bias and respectful approach to selecting. The top 3 criteria we look for are:

QUALITY – Products must be handmade and handcrafted using quality materials and practices for a cohesive brand.

PRIDE OF COMPANY – We want to ensure we are filling our events with makers that take pride in what they do. All social media accounts will be reviewed for growth, engagement, following, frequency of posts, etc. Websites will be reviewed to ensure the look and feel matches our brand. The artisans in our community are a reflection of our overall brand and mission. 

INNOVATION – Your products and branding should be unique and differentiate you within the market community. Products should be distinctively yours and offer our audience a new and innovative experience.

What type of vendors do you accept?

Our markets are specifically geared towards the truly handmade and handcrafted artisan. Your work should be designed and handmade by you in a sustainable, thoughtful and quality manor. 

Additionally this means that our markets do not cater to any resale boutiques, resale vintage, trend jewelry and/or MLM businesses like Scentsy, Mary Kay, etc. 

If you work with artisans in another country, we will need a full breakdown of the relationship with the artisans in the country, photos of your visits to this country and videos of the artisans crafting their products. There has to be a monetary benefit for the artisans of the country from your sales.

Refund + Cancellation

All markets are non-refundable and non-transferrable in any circumstance or situation.
