Boerne Handmade Market was created by two of my good friends, Alyssa Mantooth and Rachel Russo. They wanted to create a space for their friends that made things to showcase their items and sell them to a larger audience. Rachel stepped away to start Vault Fostering community in 2015 and I stepped in. Alyssa and I worked together on BHM until 2019 when she moved out of state. I’ve been running BHM since then. My desire is to create a special atmosphere for both makers and shoppers. BHM is a juried market- meaning all vendors must apply and be juried before being accepted. There is a new and different jury each market consisting of jurors from different age groups and with different tastes. They look through all the applications which are separated by category (bath and body, jewelry, home decor, ceramics, hand sewn, etc.) and then number the applications in order of their favorites. After scores are tallied, the top vendors in each category are accepted. BHM only accepts 8% like items- meaning- 8% of the total booths at BHM can be jewelry or ceramics. That way shoppers get a good mix of items.

It is also important, that as a market, we accept new vendors each market and encourage any returning vendors to bring new items to each market. We want the shopping experience to be fun and exciting every 6 months. We want shoppers to feel like they are entering 70 miniature boutiques. Booth style and decor is also very important and we encourage makers to spend time making their booths unique. Our VIP Night tickets are sold out, but keep an eye on our social media for giveaways and come shop on Saturday!

Thank you,
