second storie} the vendors!

We are so thrilled to announce our vendor list. Each vendor we've chosen is a perfect fit for the inaugural second storie} indie market, and oh so talented! Ceramic dishes, vessels and sculpture, letterpress, hand knit bags and accessories, steel jewelry and sculpture, paintings, screen printed goods, beaded jewelry, book arts, children's toys and clothes, hand-sewn bags, mixed media art pieces, hand-made pillows and more will all be there. We're starting out small, but mighty! Cheers to you, our dream for an indie art + craft market in Rochester wouldn't be possible without you!! We can't wait to see you in September!

great news!

we have some exciting news! after a little scrambling when our original venue a|v had to close, we couldn't be more pleased to announce our new home! second storie} indie market will be held at the visual studies workshop! a wonderful space, with nearly four times the room!

because we have a little room to spread out, we'll be contacting selected vendors after the first of the month regarding larger tables.

also, because we received so many inquiries about whether the indie market was still a go after a|v fell through, we're going to extend the application deadline through the end of the month. that means you still have a chance for a space if you've put it off due to all the confusion! applications will be accepted through July 30. all selected vendors will still be contacted August 1st, with welcome kits going out the first week of the month.

if you have any questions, please write us!

also, we will be at the south wedge farmer's market thursday, September 6th for a little promo time. stop by and say hello! we'll also have info on our upcoming holiday bazaar there for you! thanks to the sw market for the invitation!

we're so thrilled with all of the exciting applications we've received. we're going to have a great first event!

hello and welcome!

Second storie} indie market is Rochester, New York's newest craft fair. It was created by four friends looking for something a little edgier on the craft fair circuit. Think Renegade, or Art Star Craft Bazaar...and now Second Storie! The event will take place Friday, September 7th with a kick off party {complete with live music!} and Saturday, September 7th. We're thrilled with our venue: a|v space at the Rochester Public Market.

We're excited to announce that Second Storie is now calling all artists + crafters! Our downloadable application will be up on friday June 8th, but if you'd like to get a head start you can email us at and will send one to you!

Second Storie is looking for just the right fit for both artists and shoppers alike, so participants will be selected by jury. Because we like to keep things simple, and open to everyone the booth fee is minimal {we know starting your own business can be tough!} and we'll be providing all the tables. We'll be inside, so there's no worry of rain! It will be a great time all around!

We can't wait to hear from you!
