What is the Finders Keepers Vintage Market?
This is an open-air vintage inspired market. This will be held like a pop-up market, bringing a large range of quality handmade and vintage goods. Click here for a few pictures of what shoppers can expect to see.
When and where is the market taking place?
We have 6 show planned for this year. Please click the vendor application link for see dates & locations. We are accepting vendor applications (click) now.
Who can apply as a vendor?
Anyone creating quality handmade goods, produce (think jams, salsa, and organic products), reselling of well curated vintage finds, vintage furniture (painted or restored..think at least 20 years old), collectors of vintage clothing and jewelry makers. If you have something you would like to bring to market and we haven’t listed it please inbox us. We love originality and fresh ideas.
Is this a juried event?
This is a juried event. We want to create a beautiful market year after year. Vendors will be chosen based on originality, product variety, quality of goods and the overall appearance of their display.
Once I am chosen as a vendor, will I always be asked back to market?
Absolutely! We want to create long-lasting relationships with our vendors. We want to see the market grow each time. As long as you are creating beautiful items and maintaining your display throughout the day, you will be priority and we will hold a spot for you each market season.
Is there a cost and how much? Can I have more than one booth?
The cost for a 10×10 booth is $100. You may have two booths per vendor.
Do you supply tents?
We do not supply tents. You will need a 10×10 tent for market day. Or a 10×20 if you purchase two spaces. You may also use two 10×10 tents for two spaces. Please use a white tent if possible. This is not a requirement this year but will before future markets.
Does Finders Keeper keep a percentage of the sales from each booth?
No. All sales belong to the individual vendors. Our only charge would be the application fee to rent the space.
Can I share my booth with another vendor?
No. Vendor spaces may not be shared.
What time is setup and tear down?
The vendors will be able to start set up at 6am Sunday morning. This is an outdoor event so unfortunately we can not start set up any sooner. You will expect to be fully set up and ready for shoppers by 9:30am. If you are not set up by 9:30 your will have lost your spot, with no refund. This event draws large crowds and hauling of your goods would interfere with the shopping experience and overall look of a finished and polished market.
Tear down will not start until 5pm. Please do not start packing up or leave before then. Even if your space is empty.
What is the cancelation/refund policy?
Once you have been chosen as a vendor and the fee is paid, payments are non-refundable.
How will you be marketing this market? How can I help?
We will be making extensive use of social media, blogs, posters and local media. Sharing the event to your own business page/blog/personal media platform is a great way to help us spread the word and market the event.
How will vendors be updated on the planning process?
We will keep everyone in the loop via email and a closed vendor group page on Facebook. Once selected please search “finders keepers vintage market vendors.” it is a private page you will need to be added to by an admin.
