Vintage Purveyor and Artisan Markets


Quality Vintage & Handcrafted Artisan Wares



ABOUT FETCHING MARKET

Fetching Market was developed and created from a lifelong passion for attending flea markets, treasure hunting at vintage shoppes and collecting quality goods. I owned a lovely shop for 7 years and realized my passion was not only selling goods, but also hosting events at the shop. I wanted to reach a larger audience and artists so I closed my shop in 2013 and began my new adventure.

Fetching Market strongly believes in supporting small business - brick & mortar shops as well as the cottage industry. Our vendors are strong artistically and technically gifted; they love to fetch and create the best, most unique vintage finds and then display them with an artistic flare.

Fetching Market is Quality Vintage & Handcrafted Wares - Our markets offer barn finds, silver, ironstone, vintage glassware, collectibles, vintage jewelry, vintage clothing, boutique clothing, chippy rusty stuff, barn wood, garden items, beautifully handcrafted jewelry, soaps, lotions, potions, candles, woolens, project finds, pieces of stuff, estate sale finds, vintage signs, retro, mid-century, old tables, old chairs, old doors, old windows, old shutters - painted, stripped, recovered, repurposed.

  • Outstanding Vendors - Joining us from across the United States. Local artisans, nationwide artisans, skilled craftsmanship, talent, and gourmet delicacies.
  • Quality Food & Cocktails - Local fare and delish beverages.
  • Live Music - Local Bands & Solo Artists
  • Our Staff - Dedicated to make each event an outstanding experience with quality care for guests and vendors
  • Locations - Fetching Market pops up in various locations.  We are invited by Towns and Villages located in NWI as well as The Chicago Southland to host a market in their community.  We have an outstanding following plus we draw a new audience each market from each community we are in.  This is a great niche to fulfill as it allows us to share out vendors to a new and larger clientele each market.  The community also benefits as we bring folks in from across the Region, Chicagoland as well as Southern and Northern areas that may have never visited before.

VENDOR APPLICATION

We are always looking for warm, friendly, and creative vendors who take pride in their craft. Our amazing artists are always reinventing and keeping things fresh. 
We select vendors whose merchandise will sell well at our Upscale Markets. We seek skilled artisans of handcrafted goods as well as purveyors of vintage, antique, salvaged, retro, industrial, repurposed, and architectural wares. 

Fetching Market is a juried event.  The committee reviews all vendor applications for approval.  Booth fees to those selected are Non-refundable. You will hear from us within a month of receiving your vendor application.   

We are not a craft show or a flea market.  We reserve the right to choose vendors that best suit our juried show. We limit the specific type of similar vendors and goods to help insure a successful market to all vendors.

Merchandise in must be 90% vintage, handmade, repurposed or up-cycled. We do not allow imported mass-produced items. We will allow you to display 10% other pieces in your booth only. Display and/or selling of any merchandise not listed in your product description will not be allowed. No Direct Sales items.
