Guadalupe, Calif., September 10, 2018 – Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) is inviting artisans and crafters associated with the city of Guadalupe, CA to apply to be a vendor at the first-ever Guadalupe Makers Market on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at Flappers Flip on Historic Highway One.

Guadalupe Makers Market will offer local entrepreneurs a nurturing and encouraging environment to showcase, product test and sell their handmade items. Products considered include clothing and fabric art, jewelry, home decor, photography and fine art, woodworking, pottery, crafts and specialty food. Vendors who live, work, went to school in or have a strong connection to the city of Guadalupe will have priority over other applicants.
