This will be the 23rd Queen Bee Market since its creation in 2010, and the second one in Las Vegas. Originally vendors at the popular Queen Bee Market, sisters Kellie Dooley and Allison Gharst became the owners in 2014 and hand-select the vendors who participate in each expo. Vendors will showcase and sell an array of handmade home décor, accessories, clothing, paper arts, vintage items, natural skin care products and more. A sampling of the confirmed participants thus far includes: Handcrafted Brunette, Little Mister, Salty Bison and Mama’s Cold Brew.

Tickets will be priced at $5 per person and will be available for purchase at the door. Children 12 years old and younger and military with ID receive free entry. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local non-profit organization.

Ahead of the expo, Queen Bee Market will also host a Craft Night, held at The Conference Center of Las Vegas from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 8. The Craft Night will feature food, drinks, giveaways, swag bags and three take-home crafts led by celebrity guest crafter Amy Tangerine. Tickets to Craft Night are priced at $85 and are available for purchase beginning Thursday, Jan. 18 at www.TheQueenBeeMarket.com.
