SPRING 2023 maker interest form
Looking to join our shop in Downtown Sykesville for 2023? We are looking for new faces to compliment our already fantastic list of Maryland makers. If you have not been in our store, I encourage you stop by or check our instagram to get a feeling for what we are all about! We are a fun and inclusive environment with a side of sarcasm. We are a consignment based boutique featuring upwards of 80 Maryland makers and artists on vibrant Main St, Sykesville. Our town has been voted "coolest and best" in America over the last 5 years and our Main St program places emphasis on helping downtown businesses grow and thrive.  Our store opened in April of 2021 and we have won 4 Best of Carroll awards and several small business grants!

Please read all the way through before filling out our application. 

What we offer:

Shopify based selling platform- your products will be available in store and also on our website 24/7 
Consignment portal that shows all items in stock, what has sold, and payout information
MELIO direct deposit payments- no paper checks
In house social media marketing
Label creation and barcoding for organization and inventory tracking

What do we expect from you? (we will go in to more detail once a contract is issued)

The break down:

You will be responsible to upload all inventory to our website (a detailed video is provided for this simple process)  quality photos are a must!

There is a 60/40 split between the consignor and the store- Tidal Salt retains 40% of each sale

$10/month store fee

Social media involvement- we require promotion of the shop, your items, and sharing of other makers in our space on your social channels on a regular basis that will be outlined in our contract if you are offered a spot. If you are not social media savvy, we plan to offer a zoom meeting to go over how to create content and share across platforms. 

Regular inventory restock/refresh- we will communicate with you on what is selling well/not moving- we do expect items to be refreshed at least every 60 days and restocks should occur more frequently on items that have sold out or are low on inventory. Small items CAN be mailed to the store via USPS or UPS

Items must be handmade by YOU- we do not accept reseller items, items with vinyl, handmade stickers. Stickers must be professionally printed and waterproof. 

When will I be informed if I was chosen for space in the shop? Mid April!
