DIY Incubator Application FOR holiday FAIR // SUNDAY NOVEMBER 18, 2018

The Mill & Mine | 227 W. Depot Ave, Knoxville TN 37


This year, we’re excited to offer a unique opportunity for makers who are just beginning to find their way into the craft fair world. If you’re an emerging vendor who has a particular interest in developing DIY kits and establishing a signature DIY Workshop– this booth is for you! Three makers will be chosen to participate in this shared DIY incubation booth and, in order to support these burgeoning makers on their quest for development, the participation fee will be waived! This opportunity is designed for those who haven’t participated in Retropolitan before — this is purely for first-timers! In order to ensure the participants are able to fully benefit from this unique opportunity, you will be asked to schedule a meeting with Ryan-Ashley Anderson of sponsor Smart + Becker and Hope Brasfield of Hopebroidery so they can help get you ready for the show! Upon acceptance, all details around next steps will be sent your way.
