Shoppe Artisan is open to all independent artisans/makers of handcrafted products who are residents of and working in North America. Works should be made by hand or with the use of appropriate tools and demonstrate imagination as well as the mark of the maker’s individuality. All works displayed and sold must have been completed within the last three years. The Shoppe Artisan jury will serve as the final authority on eligibility. Careful consideration will be made based on quality, salability, innovation and category balance. Our goal is to offer attendees the widest selection of products possible. Exceptions to these requirements will be made on an individual basis.

Each applicant must submit five (5) images for consideration by the jury. Four images must be of current work and representative of work applicant plans to exhibit at the show. One image must be of your booth display. Images must be between 1400-2000 pixels on the longest side.

IMPORTANT: All accepted and waitlisted artisans must maintain an accurate and up-to-date applicant’s profile in ZAPP.

Collaborating Artisans – collaborating artisans/makers may apply to participate, but only joint work may be shown and sold. Otherwise, each maker must apply for his/her own space. Names of collaborating makers must appear on all application materials. If collaborating makers apply, each maker must be onsite for the show. Only the work of the contracted maker may be displayed and sold.
Reproduction Policy – A limited amount of reproductions are acceptable. Reproductions must be displayed in no more than 50% of your booth space. A "reproduction" sign must be clearly displayed within your booth.

Liability & Insurance – Shoppe Artisan will provide security at the Cobb Galleria Centre both day and night; however, each maker exhibits at his or her own risk and should carry appropriate insurance. Neither Shoppe Artisan nor the Cobb Galleria Centre is responsible for damage, theft or loss of an individual's work.
