Call for Artists: St. Nick’s Warehouse




November 24 & 25santa
28th Annual St. Nick’s Warehouse
Arts & Crafts Show
Henry Ford II High School
Sterling Heights, MI
250 Exhibitors
New Deadline: September 1
Where is Sterling Heights, MI, and Henry Ford II High School? You just know it has to be the Detroit area which abounds with buildings named for one Ford or another, right? Visit this link to find the spot.

During the holidays there is a plethora of arts and crafts shows which pop up around the country in the local schools. In Michigan they have reached a zenith and are eagerly awaited by the shoppers. St. Nick’s Warehouse is presented by the Boosters Club and aggressively promoted and smoothly run by them. They know how to run an event and they know how to bring in shoppers.

My background is fine art fairs, but in recent years I have attended a few of these holiday markets. Here is what I found:

  • dedicated buyers waiting at the doors with lists in hand
  • craftspeople with unique, one-of-a-kind goods
  • Police directing traffic!! because of the crowds
  • shuttle buses running from nearby parking lots bringing shoppers
  • well-run events
  • affordable booth fees

The Henry Ford II Boosters Club take great pride in their school and are well known for this event. Visit their website for more details, contact info and to download an application.
