HGS 2023

Hello, Buyers! We know many of you are already placing your orders for the holiday season — and what better way to shop than to do so while supporting other small businesses?

As some of you may know, in January of 2020 we debuted the Handmade Gift Show, which allowed retailers like you to come and find new vendors for their stores for the new year. It was a huge success and we are so pleased to be bringing this event back to a bi-annual date pattern, now with a show each summer and winter.

We love all the vendors we are able to introduce you to at our shows, and know that you will too because they each offer unique products that have a fantastic story behind them! Some of our old school vendors have gone on to be HUGE in the retail marketplace and Urban Craft Uprising’s Handmade Gift Show is the place to discover those new budding businesses. So come meet some great new makers, restock your shelves and make 2023 the year you focus on handmade products!

This event is hosted each summer and winter, connecting vendors to shops in the PNW. It’s a great place to restock your shelves after a busy holiday season! Come discover your new favorite vendors! We can’t wait to see you.

UCU is Seattle’s largest indie craft show, hosting over 150 independent designers, artists, crafters and makers at our biannual shows. Our wholesale events have been a big hit with buyers in and around the Pacific Northwest, as it offers a dedicated shopping experience so you don’t have to fight through the crowds to have a conversation with our vendors.

We urge you to register as soon as you can, so you’ll be kept in the loop as the event approaches!

It was overall a great show for me. I wrote 8 orders (2 reorders and 6 new) and with follow up will probably have a couple more. The buyers were quality and I had some great conversations. I also connected with some buyers on wishlist stores that I have reached out to in the past to no avail. I offered cash and carry and I think that made a difference.
