Why should you be a vendor?
The Vintage Market at the Park is growing by leaps and bounds. The spring show drew more than 85 vendors and nearly 4,000 attendees--a 40% increase over past shows. We do the majority of our marketing online but have been lucky to attract several fans in the local media who happily write newspaper articles on the market or host us for morning shows on TV. Oh and there was that little spot in the nationally published Romantic Country magazine.
So where do you sign up? Then read on.
The #1 rule is that we only take vendors of handmade, re-purposed, and vintage/antique goods. We do not take any direct sales vendors or anyone who sells mass merchandise. If you have questions about your items, head over to our gallery page for a selection of photos. It will give you an idea about what we're looking for. We are a juried show and we expect a certain level of curated booths to appeal to our visitors. We also try to keep a diverse offering of vendors, so unfortunately, we cannot accept everyone. We have been overwhelmed with jewelry and handmade vendors in shows and have established thresholds for these categories in particular. Send us photos of your best work and do so as soon as we open the application process.
You don't have to have prior market/show experience, but keep in mind we encourage you to curate your space. The Vintage Market is also about design and helping our visitors get their creative juices flowing. Unique displays go a long way to achieving this vision!
So are you sold? Follow us on Facebook for future show dates and call for vendors!
You will receive a confirmation email once it has been received. You will then need to send three photos of your product to our email address. Don't forget this step because this is how we determine if you are a good fit for the market. Internet and social media presence is crucially important so don't forget to include those links on your application.
We hope you'll be a part of the next Vintage Market!
