We are looking for people who specialize in furniture (painted or unpainted), signage, wall décor, small décor, vintage inspired attire, wood working, industrial. The list goes on. Not sure if you have what we are looking for? Send us an application and we will check you out and get back to you shortly. This is a juried event and not everyone who applies will be accepted to the market.
What does it cost to be a vendor?
We charge $100 for all vendors spaces 10×10. Each vendor is responsible for bringing their own 10×10 tent.
Will I need a vendors license?
Yes, you will absolutely need to have a valid vendors license. If you do not have one currently please contact your local court house and they should be able to help you. If asked to provide proof of license and you do not have one you could be fined. This process is not hard and we can assist with any questions you might have.
Do we need a tent to participate?
We do require that each vendor have their own pop-up tents. Please note that these events sometimes are exclusively outside and it would benefit you to have a tent with walls. Though not required. As of now we do not rent tents
Can you share a space?
No, we ask that each vendor have their own space.
Will we have access to electricity?
We try our best to accommodate all our vendors and their needs. Currently we do not charge extra for electric because our venues do not charge us for electric. We will have electric at each event, but some are limited and are on a first come first serve basis.
We do not offer a refund of vendor fees. However, we do understand that things come up. If you have conflict with dates after fees have been paid please contact us so we can work with you. If you do not contact us within 5 days of the upcoming event we can and will keep the fees without transfer. We will be open rain or shine and will only cancel markets due to severe weather. If we choose to move the market date and you are unable to attend the we will transfer your fee to the next market you are able to attend. We will notify our vendors of new date as soon as we can.
What happens after I’ve applied?
Please give us up to two weeks to respond to your application. If you are chosen to be a vendor we will email you with the contract and dead line for application fee. All payments MUST be in by the deadline so we know who is attending and can plan accordingly.
What will the market do for you?
We have been vendors before, so we understand the needs of our vendors. We want to make sure everyone has what they need to make their day a successful one. We will have furniture transporters for you so you do not have to carry your piece or leave your space. We will have market helpers who will be easy to spot if you need help in any way. You will be given a contact number to call if you need help and cannot locate a market helper. We also have a Facebook page specifically for our vendors. Please join that group so that you may lean on one another for questions, support and networking.
How will the market be advertised?
Our main form of advertising will be social media. We have a Facebook page for the market that we will be promoting each month. We post 11″x 18″ flyers one month before each show in as many places that will allow us to. We place a 3″x 5″ ad in the local paper 1 week before our event.
What can you do for your market?
We ask that each of our vendor share our Facebook page on their business page as well. Help us spread the word of this great opportunity for vendors and shoppers alike. Please help us keep the good vibes by tending to your space throughout the day. You are not only representing your personal business but the market as well.
