 Valentines Fling is SOLD OUT! 

There are a gazillion talented folks in Winnipeg! I appreciate and thank each creative cat who applied for the November 24th  & Feb 10th Half Moon Markets.

⭐️ Up and Coming : June 2, 2019 at the WECC. Virgin registration begins March 1, 2019. Please email if you have never sold at a Half Moon before and wish to be placed on the “Virgin List”.  ⭐️

( Yes there is a Cat & Craft show on Dec 1, details come….meow)

How exactly do applications work?

  1. Virgins will be emailed directly before general registration opens. Special treatment for first time Half Moon artisans ensure the show is constantly getting fresh blood.
  2. The application link will be posted on this website and will be taken down when the show is full. Returning artisans will not receive an email with the application link. You gotta show up here. 

Artisans are accepted based on a combination of qualities including

  1. you create something that pushes the boundary of craft
  2. you make something no one else at the market is making
  3. you make something that might not be easily found in other craft shows.

The Half Moon intends to be affordable so that no artisan is excluded due to entry fees.  Crafting virgins and veterans are equally welcome at The Half Moon however I have a soft spot for the underdogs who are on a tight budget. Table prices vary each show depending on my budget. For the Feb 10th show at the WECC prices ranged from $25 – $75.



Helpful Tips For Half Moon Virgins 

push boundariesThe heart of the Half Moon is to think outside the craft box.

To learn more about this show, please check out the  Half Moon Market Facebook page and the photo feed on Instagram (Halfmoonmarketwpg). I hope you will see how this show is done for the love of it, for the fun of it and I drop the occasional F-bomb. A few artisans use colorful language in their art and I fully embrace this.

If you are brand new to the Half Moon Market, you will be given a head start on applications.  Half Moon “Virgins” who have never sold at a Market before may email Please note that being a “virgin” is not a guaranteed in – it just gives you an advantage as the show fills up fast. I put a lot of thought into “curating”  a diverse representation of craft.

Helpful Tips For Returning Artisans 

Repeat offenders are more than welcome! Its wonderful to have folks who want to return.  Each Half Moon Market strives to be a different & diverse reincarnation of previous Markets. There are so many amazing artists in this city. If there is not room at the Half Moon, there are so many other lovely opportunities to explore within the city. 15 years ago we didnt have all these markets and pop-ups! I truly believe there is a spot for every artisan within Winnipeg’s growing craft scene.
