Urban Craft Uprising Summer 2017

Do you enjoy beautiful hand made items? How about an entire convention center space filled with the hustle and bustle of people as they enjoy these beautiful hand made items? That's what Urban Craft Uprising is all about. 

Urban Craft Uprising summer 2017

This amazing curated event happens twice a year in Seattle, and about 150 vendors (some have traveled from other states) will be there with their compelling displays and exquisite handmade goods. Shoppers arrive early and line up around the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, waiting to receive one of the famous "swag bags". We usually hand make these little catnip toys to contribute to the swag bags:

This year we will have our new whale Cat Ball out on display so you can see the gorgeous sea turtle lining fabric and enjoy the whale's fins and baleen details in person. We will also have our shark Cat Ball, mini Cat Ball, and jumbo size Cat Canoe so you can compare sizes of all of our pet bed designs. We will also have a slide show with photos and videos that have been posted on Instagram - will you see your cat there? Be sure to use #thecatball when you post so it's easy for me to find your photos!

We will bring our balls to your cats at Urban Craft Uprising!

Stop by and see if we can make you giggle without funny cat videos and irreverent sense of humor! We will have Flat Retro on hand if you'd like to take some photos.

And here is some great news about this summer show - there will be a line of food trucks out in the courtyard! Food vendors include:

  • Seattle Cookie Counter - Vegan bakery and ice creamery
  • Pampeana Empanadas - A family-owned business that provides traditional-style baked empanadas with delicious and creative fillings.
  • Kiss My Grits - A creative blend of Low country and Filipino street food
  • Tabassum - A food truck bringing both savory and sweet samsas hand-pies to the streets of the Northwest
  • Athena's - Delicious Greek food

Urban Craft Uprising is open to the public on June 24th and 25th, here is their Facebook event page. On Monday, June 26th the show will be open to qualified wholesale buyers. We will be there for both the retail and wholesale events. Here is the link to our events calendar.
