Vendor Application

Hello, and thank you for your interest in applying to become a vendor at our Cultural Survival Bazaars.  Our jury looks forward to reviewing your application, and following up with any questions we may have.  Due to the pandemic, our events are currently on hiatus and will reopen in July 2022, in Newburyport, MA and Tiverton, RI.  Those events will be followed by Bazaars in December 2022, in Cambridge and Boston.  You will hear back from our jury by December 2021.

Before applying, please confirm that you, or the artists who make the crafts you sell, identify as Indigenous.  We only accept applications for art that is Indigenous-made.  Our jury will request at random your participation in reviews of vendor relationships with Indigenous artists, including video, audio and/or written communication from the artists themselves in the case of a vendor selling art that is not their own.

Log in or create a new account.

INDIGENOUS IDENTITY - When defining Indigenous, we consider the following:

  • How do the artists personally identify?

  • What is the history of their people and land?

  • Have they needed to stand up for their natural resources?

  • Do they have separate systems (social/economic/political) as sovereign nations?

  • Are they a non-dominant group of society?

  • Do they commit to maintaining their ancestral systems as a distinctive community?

► For new applicants

Create a login and password to make a profile for your business and the art you wish to sell. Include as much detail as possible - the more detail you provide, the better your chances are of being accepted. Your application will be reviewed once you completely fill out all required information. Completing your profile early gives us a chance to request additional information or clarifications if needed before sending to the jury. If you cannot finish all at once, click "Save" and log back in another time.

If you are accepted, you will have the opportunity to register for either or both events each season.

Note: If you have participated as a vendor in the past but have not been accepted since December 2016 through our new online application process, please fill out a new application by clicking the button above. 

► For returning applicants 

If you have been accepted to the Bazaars through this online application process in the past, simply log in and click "Register" at the top once registration opens. If you wish to add items to your booth that were not in your application when you were accepted, these must be added before you register. Please email


► Application process

If your application is accepted to a Bazaar this season, you'll be able to easily apply in the future using the same application by simply registering for specific events. 

The basic requirements for acceptance are that crafts be:

-Direct-traded from Indigenous artists through clear and ongoing relationships if not sold at the Bazaars by the artists themselves, with detailed information on the artists/artisan groups and/or whoever has participated in creating them;
-High quality; and
-Unique from other accepted vendors' crafts.

The jury takes many factors into account when deciding whether to accept an application, including the applicant's ability to explain the crafts' relationship with the Indigenous culture of the artist(s); the quality of the work; the uniqueness of the work from other artists' work, both in style and in medium; whether the craft fits in with the overall selection at the market; whether the price range makes sense in the context of the Bazaar and our audience; and more. We aim to create a cohesive, diverse marketplace in which the art and crafts complement each other. Review the Fair Trade Pledge and the Bazaar Craft Regulations carefully to ensure that your crafts meet the criteria.
