Welcome to NUCVE!
For 6 years we have been putting together Craft & Vendor Shows here in New Ulm and each year we work to make them better than the last!
NUCVE is a low cost group for Crafters & Vendors who want to take part in events, but not break the bank!
We don't work to bring in 60, 70 or 100 vendors! We work to bring in those who have great stuff and those who are just starting out and would like some experience attending shows at MUCH lower costs.
NUCVE does NOT profit off our vendors. What we take in, we put out. Every penny that comes in from our Crafters & Vendors gets put back into either that show directly or for another more expensive show making it possible for us to keep our show costs low. Even after 2020 with covid going crazy! and the funds we lost we are still able to make this happen and hopefully even better for a couple end of the year shows with more being added!
Our Shop the Lot events are what we call "time killers". Not setup as large shows, we use these to bring a small group of crafters & vendors together to simply give New Ulm something extra for the day. We will get new crafters & vendors at these shows and mix them with experienced vendors so they can learn what it takes. Our experienced vendors are always willing to jump in to help them and give them knowledge to make there next show better.
We did decide to cancel 2 Shop the Lots after talking with the attending at the 2 first shows. Everyone agreed 2 shows a month is too much.
After this we jump into getting ready for our 6th annual CraftoberFest during New Ulm's OktoberFest on 1st St. N. between Broadway & Minnesota. LOT'S! of exciting Crafters & Vendors come in and line the streets to give a great addition to an already awesome event!
Than we go into Holly Days with Santa which will be held at the Best Western here in New Ulm. This is a 2-day event, Friday November 26 and Saturday November 27.
Santa, Treats and Drinks, Kids Activities as well as our great Crafters & Vendors.
We are hoping things will keep turning to the better so we can all get back on track with any and all events.
We will keep our website up to date as we get things in order.
Keep your eye on this website and also follow us on Facebook to stay updated as we move forward.
