Salutations Vendors,


The Larchmere Festival is almost upon us, and you are cordially invited!  It will be the first Saturday in July, which is July 6th.  We do hope you’ll join us as a vendor, but hurry – we’re assigning spaces now, and we want you to get what you want!  Attached is a vendor contract in both Word and PDF formats.  You can mail or drop checks off to Fiddlehead Gallery at 13002 Larchmere Boulevard. 


If you’ve already sent your contract in, you should be hearing from us shortly with placement information.  If you can’t exhibit this year, perhaps you can attend or share the news with others.  We’re looking forward to a great Festival.  Here’s a quick recap (below).

Title: Larchmere Festival


Antiques Fair

In keeping with Larchmere tradition, the spirit of the Larchmere Festival rests soundly with antique decorative arts.  Sublime, distinguished and well-crafted furniture and small collectibles will be featured by both merchants who have shops on the street, in addition to invited dealers who will create a mini antiques fair of quality collectibles.  Vehicles can be accommodated behind the booths in this lot.

Location: Shaker Heights parking lot, 12755 Larchmere


Sidewalk  Sales

Covering the sidewalks from East 130th Street to East 121st street will be interesting vendors of all kinds.  The merchants who have bricks-and-mortar shops on Larchmere will be represented in front of their stores, but the spaces on the edges, corners and in-between will be filled by traveling and guest vendors of collectibles, kitsch, and vintage goods.  Community resources and non-profits complete the picture.  There's an art to the boulevard browse, and with almost ten blocks of great stuff, this is the heart of festival.

Location: Larchmere between E. 121 & E. 130 Streets


Bazaar Bizarre

Not your granny's craft fair!  The artists who comprise the popular indie Bazaar Bizarre are spunky, outrageous, and irreverent -- and so is their art.   We are pleased that this indie market will join us again in our Larchmere celebrations in a new and expanded location, and we invite you to discover the quirky, homemade kitsch that has made them famous.

Location:  former Mo and Son's lot, 12605 Larchmere
