It's almost the most wonderful time of the year.
By that we mean: Crafeteria 2015 returns on Friday, December 4, to Medlock Plaza. And the good folks at Frances, the Central Phoenix boutique that puts on the annual marketplace, are looking for vendors to hawk their goods at the 10th edition of the indie crafts, design, and art festival.
Frances is now accepting applications from makers with high quality and original work. Organizers are looking for 30 or more vendors whose work is both local and handmade. "Think screen prints, jewelry, plush toys, knitwear, beauty products, snacks, and holiday decor," the Crafeteria vendor application says.
If that sounds like you (or a crafter you know), note that applications must be e-mailed to email@example.com by October 31. Accepted applicants will be notified by November 9.
If that sounds like stuff you want to buy, mark your calendar and set aside a super-cute scarf.
Crafeteria 2015 will be free to attend and held from 6 to 10 p.m. at Medlock Plaza on Friday, December 4. Live music performances and food trucks will be on site. The vendor application is available online via Frances, along with more event details.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
