These markets provide a valuable platform for small creative businesses to promote themselves to their local gift-buying audience.

The ETSY MADE LOCAL CHRISTMAS MARKET is a showcase for handmade artists in Tasmania and will take place Saturday 30th November & Sunday 1st December, from 10am to 4pm at the Derwent Entertainment Centre (DEC)

This is a 2-day market and there will be no one day spaces.

All stall holders will be expected to stay until the market closes so please make sure you can commit to the whole 2 days before applying.

We also expect that you will help to promote the event via any social media that you have and by helping to distribute flyers. The more promotion we can get the more buyers there will be at the market and the more successful your stall will be.

THE VENUE

This will be an indoor market and will be held at the Derwent Entertainment Centre in Glenorchy.

WHO CAN APPLY?

The event is open to any ETSY Seller living in Tasmania selling handmade, vintage or supplies. Applicants MUST have an active Etsy store with at least 6 items in it that reflect what you will be selling at the market. The About & Policies sections must be filled in and the shop must have a shop icon and seller avatar. (watch this video if you are unsure https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=865532490452587)

Don't have an Etsy store? You can easily set one up and list your first 20 items free using the code AUSWANDARRAH and the link www.etsy.com/promotions .

COST

Stall spaces are 3m x 3m in the arena and 2.8 x 2.5m in the Foyer and the cost varies depending on whether the stall is a corner space or not. See below for prices.

DO I REQUIRE ANY INSURANCE?

Yes you do, however $20 million Public Liability Insurance and $20 million Product Liability Insurance WILL BE INCLUDED FREE for our stall holders. However there are some things that aren't covered by our insurance:

"- We CANNOT cover potions and lotions that stay on the skin eg. any topical cream that is applied to the skin and left on eg lip balm, moisturiser, hand cream, make up, essential oils etc
We can cover soap, bath bombs or bath crystals as they wash off the skin. We can also cover candles.
- We CANNOT cover TOYS of any description"

***If your products fall into the categories mentioned above you WILL NEED to organise your OWN INSURANCE.***
Vendors selling toys will not be accepted unless they submit a current insurance certificate with their application. This can be sent to emlhobart@internode.on.net

CAN I SHARE A STALL WITH ANOTHER SELLER?

Yes, but you will BOTH need to apply separately and indicate on BOTH application forms who you would like to share with. Stall fees will be split between those sharing with a 10% handling fee to cover extra processing and handling fees.

THIS IS MY FIRST TIME, CAN YOU HELP?

Yes! We will be giving tips and tricks in our vendor's Facebook group page. You will receive a link to this page if your registration is accepted.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING AS A STALLHOLDER?

Each stallholder should bring the following items to make their life comfortable at the Markets:
* your stock, with price tags or stickers attached;
* any tables, clothes racks or props or display items;
* a white floor length table cover for all tables (this is essential for a professional & consistent look);
* any display, signage and promotional materials, including your business cards;
* money float to suit your product pricing, electronic processing terminal if you have one;
* a chair to sit on, optional;
* a helper (if possible) so you can take a break and for the times when you have so many customers you need an extra pair of hands!;
* snacks and a drink (food will be available at the kiosk and can be ordered ahead to be brought to your stall).

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE VENDORS?

We choose vendors based on a number of criteria:
* you must sell items made by you to be eligible;
* you must have an active Etsy shop with at least six items, About Page and Policies filled in and a Profile Pic;
* we look for professional presentation in your social media or website;
* we look for a quality product;
* we try to get a good balance of categories so we don't have too much competition in each category;
* a willingness to help and promote the market;
* positive community spirit;
* your items must not include any items that infringe on IP rights;
* we can only consider applications that have sent 3 PHOTOS to emlhobartsocialmedia@gmail.com;
* we can only consider vendors selling toys if a current insurance certificate is sent to emlhobart@internode.on.net with submission
* having been accepted for a previous market does NOT guarantee you a spot in the next one.


HOW DO I KNOW THAT I’VE BEEN APPROVED AS A STALLHOLDER?

We will advise you (in writing) of our decision.

If you're unsuccessful, you will automatically be added to a 'second chance' list and we'll be in contact with you should a space become available. If you haven't heard from us by 1st August it means you are on the wait list but do check your spam folder as emails do end up there sometimes.

WHEN DO I PAY?

A $130 Application fee is required WITH your application. If successful this will become your non-refundable deposit. If unsuccessful this fee will be refunded to you. The entire stall fee must be paid by 15th AUGUST. Failure to pay by this date WILL result in forfeiture of your place and you will go back on the waiting list. Please note installment plans WILL NOT be available as they have been abused in the past. Please ensure you can pay both payments on time before applying.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL?

Stall fees will go into covering the costs of venue fees, insurance, equipment hire, decoration and promotion. If you cancel, we will NOT be able to give you a refund unless we can find someone to take your place. Please keep this in mind before applying. Your stall is NOT transferable so you cannot sell your spot to someone else as we need to approve all vendors and site placements. Cancellations received up to 30th September will be refunded stall fees less the deposit IF we can find a replacement. Cancellations post 1 October will not receive a refund for any reason.

BUMP IN TIMES

Bump in will be from 7am on the SATURDAY. You will be allocated a time. please note we are unable to access the venue on the Friday due to another booking.
