Applications to the 2018 Crampus Market are now CLOSED FOR OUR EVENT ON DECEMBER 18th, 2018!

Crampus Market is a period pun... and it's a market of more than 20 female and queer-identifying artists selling their work. The event is free for vendors and free for attendees. Instead of paying a cover at the door, we ask that attendees bring a box of pads, tampons, or other menstrual products to donate to Chicago Period Project. They're an amazing organization that provides period supplies to people in need! Last year we collected over 10,000 individual period products. Let's smash that record!

If you just want to RSVP or tell your friends about the event, the Facebook Event link is here.

The event is taking place at Emporium Logan Square on December 18th from 6-11 pm. Thank you, Emporium, for donating your space to us!

  • The application fees collected have given us a head start of $190 to donate! I threw in some of my own money and now we already have 2614 items (pads, tampons, and pantyliners) to donate!

  • Applications closed on September 30th. Letters will be sent to all applicants by October 14th.

If you are attending the event, please bring a box of INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED pads, tampons, pantyliners, or any of the other items listed on the Chicago Period Project website. Please do NOT bring menstrual cups, since many of the recipients of our donations do not have access to running water, peroxide, a stove, or any other way to sanitize their cups. Thank you for being considerate! If you would like to get the most bang for your buck with donations, see this blog post for suggestions.
