Women’s Gifts is a music and art event that celebrates the creativity of women. It is an un-juried market and vendors will be admitted on a first come, first served basis while space is available. Be aware that tables become increasingly limited each year, so have your application turned in immediately to reserve your spot. Please keep in mind that although this is an un-juried event, the organizers reserve the right to refuse registration requests in order to ensure the diversity and authenticity of the items for sale. Women’s Gifts will not accept any factory produced goods under any circumstances. This event was founded in an effort to highlight the skill and creativity of women and will therefore be restricted to handmade items only. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please include them with your application or email BuffaloWomensGifts@gmail.com. Email will be used as the primary method of communication, however please let us know if you prefer another method.
The registration fee of $120 is due with your completed application. This fee includes one 6-foot table and two chairs. If you do not need a table, please let us know. For women ages 25 and under, please send proof of age with your application (such as a copy of a driver’s license or valid ID) to register at a discounted fee of $95. Checks can be made out to “West Side Stitchery,” (the organizers’ collective). Once we have had a chance to review your application, we will cash your check and send a follow up email (unless otherwise noted) confirming your participation in this year’s event.
Set-up time for the day of the event is 8:30 am. Tables will be assigned, and you will be notified when you arrive of your table location. We will have more details as the date of the event approaches. Any vendor who does not claim her table by 9:30 a.m. will forfeit her spot. Due to the nature of our contract with the venue, no refunds will be given in any case of forfeiture. After your application is accepted, if for any reason you must forfeit your table, please let us know as soon as possible so that we may offer the opportunity to an applicant on our waiting list.
Your check -- made out to “West Side Stitchery” -- can be mailed to the address below:

If you prefer to “go green,” let us know and we will send you an invoice for your registration fee that you can pay online. If you choose this option, please be aware that your table will be “soft” reserved until your payment is received, so make sure you pay the invoice promptly to reserve your table.
Please feel free to refer interested friends and artists to register as well!
