For those of you have never attended our show, the entrance to the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall is located at 321 Mercer Street (right beneath the Ballet, and wheelchair accessible!)


suggesteddonationAs always, attending UCU is free to the public! However, you will see a donation box as you enter the Ex Hall, and on the raffle table, and we appreciate any amount that you are able to give.  Your donation helps to offset the cost of the show and enables us to keep this event free for the public, so that everyone can attend (and so that you have more money to spend on our amazing vendors)!   Thanks so much!


shop local We can’t describe enough our love for Seattle.  UCU is so lucky to be in a city that really supports the show and our vendors; with everything going on in the world, this support is truly important.

We all know the benefits of shopping local abound: you’re keeping your money circulating in the local economy, you’re directly supporting others and their families, and you get to interact with the producer of whatever you’re purchasing — which is a bonus whether your biggest concern is the quality of the product, the sourcing of the materials, the creative process, or just making a connection with someone in your community.

By shopping at UCU, you have the chance to shop local, on a huge scale!  We’ve done all the legwork of getting all these incredible local crafters and designers under one roof, so you can have the one-stop-shop experience, without the big box store.

Tell all your friends, your family, your baristas, your favorite bartenders, everyone you know, that you are attending UCU and encourage them to do so as well.  You can’t even truly imagine the awesomeness until you’ve been there yourself, so get on FacebookYelpTwitter, or your blog and tell your people where you’ll be keepin’ it local December 7th and 8th!


free swag bags
This will be our largest winter show to date!  By popular request, we will not be adding any business cards to these bags, so they’ll be full of only goodies!
This year we will also be handing out numbers to the first 100 fans in line (a ticket of sorts), so no one can cut or disrupt those that devotedly wait in line for hours.  We did this for the summer show, and it worked beautifully! Hopefully we’ll have a nice weekend so you won’t get too cold waiting in line, and it will be a fun experience full of anticipation…and perhaps you’ll meet a new friend or two in line!
