We all know that Christmas 2020 is going to be significantly different than the usual festive celebrations. The global pandemic has impacted everyone, and many of our favourite seasonal traditions will have to undergo some changes to protect visitors this year.
Glasgow Krampus Market is an annual Christmas market which runs each December in Blackfriars, Glasgow. The event has attracted large crowds of visitors due to it’s unique offerings of alternative and dark stallholders offering Christmas gifts and decor with a horror edge. There are no fluffy reindeer and sweet carol singers in sight at the Krampus Market! Local artists and small businesses instead offer severed Santa heads, macabre jewellery and gothic greetings cards for those who like Christmas with a dark side! In place of Father Christmas, the Krampus character of alpine folklore is at the heart of the markets.
Of course, in light of current events most of us are aware of the need to support local and independent traders. This is why Popcorn Horror have decided to move the Krampus Market to a virtual setup while hosting physical events remains restricted.
We are looking for UK based sellers who offer products which are horror themed, dark, alternative or gothic. Artwork, prints, homeware, gifts, decor and more are all welcome. Email to book your space – firstname.lastname@example.org
The virtual market will run for three days, from the 11th – 13th December 2020 as a Facebook event. During this time, a wide range of products from indie sellers will be shared with event attendees contacting sellers to reserve and pay for products. This is a great opportunity to find unique, one off items not available through traditional retailers.
The market is completely free to sign up as a visitor/customer, and simply requires clicking ‘Attending’ on the Facebook event.
For vendors, slots are available for £15 as a sign up fee – and entitle sellers to host 10 listings across the three day event. For those with a larger catalogue, 15 listings are available for £20. All cash made from the sale of items during the event goes 100% to the independent vendors.
