Brand New: Gift Registry!
Nope, these aren’t just for weddings and baby showers — you can create your very own 2013 Gift Registry so your friends, family, and anyone who’s thinking about giving you a gift this holiday season can know exactly what you want, and can help you support local artists and designers at the same time!
When you start your registry, you’ll be asked to fill in up to 10 vendors that will be showing their work at this winter’s Urban Craft Uprising (we recommend visiting our Vendor List ahead of time, perusing our vendors’ websites, and sketching out your list of what you’d like before you sit down to fill out the form).
You can specify actual items that you know that vendor makes, or just keep it general and let people know you’d like anything from their line of work.
Once you complete your registry, you’ll be sent an email with a message that you can forward to your friends and family, letting them know how this all works. When they arrive at the Urban Craft Uprising, they’ll go to the Registry Counter to pick up your registered list, and can begin shopping, with your directives in mind.
Not only will it help you receive the amazing handmade work you want for the holidays, but you will be helping to support these independent artisans and designers as well. Plus, your gift-givers will be relieved of the pressure to come up with a perfect gift from scratch. Everyone wins!
