HandCrafted Wholesale Market
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
FIRST ARTISAN WHOLESALE MARKET COMES TO TEXAS
Organizers of the HandCrafted Wholesale Market set out to
bridge the gap between local Texas makers and local Texas retail buyers
San Antonio, Texas (July 9, 2018)- The HandCrafted Wholesale Market will hold the first artisan wholesale market in Texas on September 13, 2018. The market is already creating buzz and excitement around the state with vendors from every major city applying.
When: September 13, 2018
What Time: 4-9pm
Where: Brick @ Blue Star, 1773, 108 Blue Star, San Antonio, TX 78204
The HandCrafted Wholesale Market is the brainchild of Catherine Contreras, partner and Wholesale Director of BarbacoApparel.
After spending years perfecting the art of wholesale for her local, puro t-shirt company, she realized she could bring wholesale opportunities to more local small businesses through a seasonal market. Even though there is a major wholesale market already in Texas, that market costs thousands of dollars for vendors to attend and does not cater to the small, local artisans. Local retailers and buyers are craving local, unique goods and this is the perfect way to bridge the gap and promote local shopping.
The market will highlight makers from all around Texas. Goods include apparel, home and body, jewelry, children's items and food gifts. This first market will be the jumping off point for more seasonal and specialized wholesale markets in the future.
The HandCrafted Wholesale Market is a private market and is only open to buyers that hold a Tax Exempt Number/EIN
Vendor applications are open until July 31st. Buyer badges can be purchased through September 1st. To become a vendor or buyer visit our website, txhandcdraftedmarket.com

Closing the Gap for Local Artisans and Local Buyer
As local artisans, we experienced the gap in the wholesale experience. We are striving to close that gap by providing a unique, quarterly shopping and vending experience for buyers and artisans alike. With markets planned for each season of the year, it has never been easier to buy local in San Antonio. Cash and Carry/Ordering will be available at all markets.
