What is Made in The Mitten about?
Made In The Mitten is a Michigan artist inspired marketplace, showcasing the work of Michigan artists from all over and their craft. Our store primarily focuses on gifts that represent the state pride. The shopping concept was inspired by other local businesses encouraging our fellow neighbors to shop local when it comes to gifts and art.
Why should you be a part of The Made In The Mitten?
Becoming a vendor at Made In The Mitten will allow you to have your own mini shop without paying the prime rent of Downtown Royal Oak. It will give your Etsy customers, online customers, and social media followers an opportunity to see your work in person and physically touch to see the quality of the product. You will also broaden your customer base by showing your products to a vast variety of people.
Our monthly rentals are very reasonable, which compare to doing one art fair a month in booth fees. Sizes and fees vary to give you the best space and size for your product. Made In The Mitten will be responsible for and excited to promote all of your work on social media and print marketing so that you can spend more time, having more time for yourself!
Once the Vendor Application has been filed, we will set an interview date for you to come, and bring your products to take a closer look at them.
