Handmade Detroit

I contacted Handmade Detroit last night. As far as I could tell from their site they are affiliated with marketing the Detroit Urban Craft Fair, where GlitterSniffer Cosmetics has sold previously.

I provided them with a brief outline of the situation and a link to the recall.

Detroit Handmade posted this today:

Glittersniffer Cosmetics Recall

It’s come to our attention that Glittersniffer Cosmetics, a past participant in the Detroit Urban Craft Fair 2008 and 2009 and Maker Faire Detroit in 2010, has issued a recall as of Dec. 24th, 2010, for some of the company’s products, due to FDA regulations. Handmade Detroit’s only affiliation with Glittersniffer Cosmetics is that of a vendor – Handmade Detroit has never received any profit from this vendor’s sales. As a courtesy to our event shoppers, we wanted to share this information with the community.
If you’ve purchased some of these products between 2006-2010, you can find a list of recalled products and information on how to request a refund here. If you need any assistance contacting Glittersniffer Cosmetics or have additional questions, please e-mail the Handmade Detroit team at media [at] handmadedetroit [dot]com.
I am not sure the reach this site has, but I am very happy that more people are now aware so they can make an informed decision. I would like to note that it took one message on their contact form to get this information posted, as step that could have easily been taken by GS themselves.


  1. I wonder, if the companies that used glittersniffer for their models in fashion shows, were ever made aware of these recalls

  2. Heather- I have been in contact with one of the designers and they have requested removal of their affiliation with GlitterSniffer. As they no longer wish to be affiliated with GS I did not wish to identify them publicly. I am still researching any other affiliations GS may have had and am working to contact them immediately.
