Applications will not be reviewed until the application period has closed on June 26th. 1st round of acceptance will be sent the week of June 27th. If an application is received after June 26th, it will automatically be added to our waitlist. You will not receive a response from us unless a booth space is available and if your application is accepted.
Application fees cover all administrative costs of our team’s time to individually process and consider each application thoroughly, but does not guarantee acceptance into the market.
TYPES OF VENDORS ACCEPTED
You must be an independent business/boutique/designer. We love boutiques, jewelry designers, fashion brands, calligraphers, stationery, beauty businesses, candle makers, handbags, furniture, home goods and anything else that is totally awesome and totally fun! We do not currently accept any direct sales brands at this time.
While we wish we could accept every vendor, we do our best to make every event feel unique, special and magical. This can mean rotating vendors (including previous vendors) and selecting certain vendors with a specific look and feel, and type of product.
If you have not been added to our waitlist, there could be a couple of reasons! One of which could be that you are in a very competitive category with limited spaces, typically boutiques and jewelry. We receive many applications in both of these categories and they are highly competitive. Simply put, we unfortunately just cannot accept everyone!
REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS
Application fees are $20 per application and are non-refundable. Booth fees are non-refundable after acceptance.
Once a maker is accepted into a market, we do not issue any refunds or credits under any circumstances. This includes unforeseeable events including but not limited to pandemic outbreaks, new regulations prohibiting gatherings, vendor contracting COVID-19, government regulations, hurricanes or other weather related events.
In the case that you have to cancel or simply cannot attend please email email@example.com as soon as possible. Day-of cancellations and no-shows without any communication will affect future acceptances.
You may not come to the market if you have been exposed to, have, or exhibit COVID-19 symptoms and if you have been exposed or have COVID-19, you must wait until you have a doctor’s note saying you are safe to attend.
Given current events, you should plan ahead in case anyone on your team contracts COVID-19, so that your company can still attend the market (i.e. having additional staff in case someone is sick or caring for a sick person) as we do not offer refunds and expect makers to have planned ahead during this pandemic. It takes a lot of time and organization to put on a market, so having our makers come fully prepared is incredibly important to the success of this event for everyone including attendees.
In the unlikely event that the market is cancelled due to government-imposed COVID-19 ordinances, your payment is non refundable and we do not issue credits.
Disclaimer: Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present; we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during the market but ask you to take precautions to greatly decrease any possibility of exposure.
Makers are expected to follow local laws and any rules Markets for Makers feels are necessary to produce each market safely and make attendees feel safe attending. This could include wearing a mask, having hand sanitizer at your booth, temperature checks daily, etc.
Access to electricity is not guaranteed. We encourage all vendors to bring battery packs for charging devices during the event.
Electricity will be available as an upgrade option at all Convention Center events. There is an additional fee. You can secure electricity during load-in the weekend of the event. If you plan to secure electricity for your booth space, please select that you will need electricity on your application so we can make sure your booth is placed accordingly!
Every market has its own system and logistics plan. You will be sent a full vendor packet with tips & tricks, social media posts and tons of helpful information within the two weeks prior to an event. Booth assignments are released by the Wednesday or Thursday before the event.
Load-in at all convention center events takes place the day before, typically on Friday from 12-5* (time subject to change). Please plan accordingly! Load-in for Sunday events typically takes place in the morning of, 2-3 hours prior to the event start time!
