Event description

Description

***PLEASE NOTE: This event is ONLY open to wholesale buyers and shop owners. Please only register for this event if you will be attending as the representative of a business interested in establishing wholesale relationships with our vendors.***

UCU is Seattle's largest indie craft show, hosting over 150 independent designers, artists, crafters and makers at our biannual shows. Our wholesale events have been a big hit with buyers in and around the Pacific Northwest, as it offers a dedicated shopping experience so you don't have to fight through the crowds to have a conversation with our vendors.

For the past five years, we have offered a one-day wholesale event in conjunction with our annual Summer Show. We have seen this event grow more and more successful over the years, with great feedback from both our vendors and buyers alike.

Historically, the Seattle Gift Show has filled a need for buyers who want to shop in person after the holiday season is over, to replenish their stock and plan ahead for the following seasons. As of 2020, the Seattle Gift Show is no longer taking place in Seattle, and the Handmade Gift Show is here to fill that void, while also focusing specifically on the handmade community and giving buyers an opportunity to connect directly with them.

We urge you to register as soon as you can, so you'll be kept in the loop as the event approaches!

  • When: Sunday, January 26th-Tuesday, January 28th // 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. ALL DAYS

~ Testimonials from our Summer Wholesale Shows ~

  • "We'd been fighting the crowds at the non-wholesale UCU for years, so we really appreciate this event. It's so nice to have the time and space to talk business. We'd love to see more vendors on the wholesale, but it seems it's growing every year." - Shalene L., Seattle, WA
  • "I actually placed way more orders than I expected and more than I did at bigger shows (acre or gift shows) because I just really liked the unique styles of the makers. Very nice selection. Nice people. easy to get through." - Annie J., Olympia, WA
  • "It was great - exceeded expectations. Hope you get more and more vendors every year!" - Mike S., Seattle WA
  • "Posy's product focus on on goods sourced straight from the maker. UCU is the best way in the NW to meet a big group of them in one place. The wholesale day means that I have time to talk to them about their products and get to know them as artists and fellow small business people. I always look forward to it!" - Laurie B, Leavenworth, WA
  • "Very organized and ready to provide information. There was no attitude of weekend fair burnout--I was impressed." - Shelly B., Olympia, WA
