How do I become a Vendor?
You must submit your Vendor Info and Finalize your Application in the above forms. If you haven’t done a show with us in the last 6 months you will also need to email 2-3 promotional quality images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How much does a booth cost and how many vendors will be chosen?
Vendor max for this pop-up is 11 Makers not including food vendors.
All booth sizes are 5’ deep x 6’ wide - $75
Is there an application fee and it is refundable if I am not accepted?
There is a $10 application fee for all applicants. This covers the administrative time to review and correspond with all vendors, and is nonrefundable. We wish we could fit everyone in, unfortunately space is always limited. Vendors are selected based on providing a variety of goods that will connect with the vibe of this venue and curated space.
What is the space of the venue like? Is it indoors or outdoors?
The venue is both an indoor and outdoor space. Vendors will be curated under two large 10’ x 20’ tents or under patio coverings.
Regarding weather, cancellations, reimbursements, etc.
If there is bad weather forecast on the day of the event, we will take a vendor vote the day before to decide if the event will be canceled.
If the event is cancelled by us or a collective vote, we will hold your booth fee for up to 7 days to determine whether or not it will be able to rescheduled on a date that works for most participating vendors/the venue. If majority can reschedule, but you are unable to do so, as a courtesy, we will reimburse your total booth fee. In return we ask that you help us find a replacement vendor from your network.
If the event ends earlier due to weather, booth fees cannot be reimbursed as all the work to curate, manage, and market the event was fully completed.
If you are unable to attend the event due to cancellation before 7 days leading up to the event, we can reimburse 50% of your booth fee. If you are able to find a replacement vendor that fits our vibe, we will reimburse 100% of your booth fee. (Any day on or before Dec 6th)
If you cancel after the 7 days leading up to the event, we cannot reimburse your booth fee unless you can find a replacement vendor in which we will refund you 75% of your booth fee. (Any day after Dec 6th)
What will the venue provide to the vendors?
Vendors will have access to outlets, covered tents, and wifi. Outdoor heaters will also be in use.
What will I need to bring for my booth?
Vendors will need to bring your own tables, chairs, and lighting for your booth, plus anything else you need to complete your booth set-up. We’ll have extra extension cords and safety tape on hand.
Will I have a wall behind me?
Walls are not part of this set-up. Think of it more like an outdoor market.
What is APPP looking for in a vendor?
We are looking for handmade and unique quality products. Our mission is to create a fun and friendly environment that provides more exposure for small shops and creatives #whereyoulive. Our craft fair events exhibit handcrafted and original items along with artists and musicians.
How do I know if I’ve been selected as a vendor?
You will receive an e-mail response within three days confirming your acceptance as a vendor with a link to pay and reserve your booth. All booths must be paid within 2 days of receiving your email confirmation in order to reserve your booth space.
Will there be a cover charge for the public?
Yes! As we have worked within the maker market industry, we have learned that adding a small cover charge not only helps us cover our expenses and time to curate and manage this event, it also brings quality shoppers that are serious about making purchases at our event. As our event grows, so do our expenses as we are now required to operate with event insurance and hire out more talent and paid roles in addition to our volunteers. General admission is $5.
Parking options for Vendors?
Vendors can pull up as close as possible to the venue to unload. Be sure to unload all merch prior to set-up. For safety measures be sure to throw on your hazard lights, and unload as quickly as possible so others can access closer unloading. We just ask the you are mindful of other vendors. Make every effort to be kind and courteous to your fellow vendors. Once you’ve unloaded your merch, you will need to find parking on your own accord for the duration of the event.
How will I know when and where I will set up the day of the event?
Be sure to download your Vendor Participation Form when you complete your Vendor Application. This will provide you with important times and information for Vendor Set-up.
