Looking for Vendors!

Our first Indie Market of the year is only 2 days away (well, 3 depending on how you look at it)! We are going to have wonderful weather and we have awesome vendors lined up for your shopping pleasure!

To make May's First Friday Indie Market even more amazing (if that's possible), we're already gathering names. If you are interested in being a vendor, please fill out the application and submit your payment. If you're not ready to commit to being a vendor, or if you can't participate in the May First Friday Indie Market, please fill out the Vendor Mailing list form to the left so we can keep you in the loop about all of the Indie Market happenings.

Hope to see everyone on Friday April 2nd!!

5 More Days!

I'm sitting here as all of these thunderstorms and tornado warnings go by, trying to think happy thoughts about the upcoming First Friday Indie Market. The weather is supposed to be absolutely perfect... 80 degrees and full of sunshine and blue skies. How much more perfect can it get!

For our first Market of the year, we got a little nostalgic about the design of our poster. We decided to use the same image from our very first Market (courtesy of Kill Taupe). Meet Gary... the cutest little Cyclops knitter I've ever seen.

If you go into the Downtown area of Greensboro, you'll see his cuteness plastered all over windows and inside many stores and restaurants. We're proud of Gary and just thrilled to have him represent the April Indie Market!

The April Market application is closed and we have all of the wonderful vendor that we need to fill our lot up. If you're interested in being a vendor in May, please feel free to contact us at FirstFridayMarkets@gmail.com or fill out the mailing list form to the left.

We'll see you all on Friday!!!

We're Back!!!

The First Friday Indie Markets in Downtown Greensboro are back for 2010. Our first Market will take place on Friday, April 2nd from 4pm -9pm at our usual lot... corner of South Elm & MLK.

Not to throw any names out at you (cuz we wouldn't want to brag or anything), but a few of the almost 30 awesome vendors we'll have in April are:

Yummy Goodness Bake Shoppe
Barehanded Press
Anna Mae Breads
The Gnome Shack
Jordan Grace Owens Art & Illustration
Wendy's Sweet Shop

Of course Mandy (of Purple Hook) and myself (Ikow Designs) will be set up as well.

It's been a big undertaking for us to keep the Markets going, but we feel it's really worth the effort. We love the atmosphere, vendors and all of the wonderful customers that come out to help us support local handmade.

Tell your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers... basically everyone you come across about us. Help us start off the April Market with a BANG!!!

Hope to see you out there!
