    Vendor Guidelines

    Event date is Saturday, March 9th from 4pm - 7pm. Doors will open for shoppers at 3:50pm. Vendors can start setting up at 2pm but must be completely set up by 3:30pm. The fee for a booth is $25, which will be enough space for a 4 foot table. 1. You are required to bring your own 4 ft. table, tablecloth, display items, chair, etc. We will show you to your assigned space when you arrive. Ask for one of our coordinators (Danielle, Eva, or Genevieve). 2. Electrical outlets will not be available for vendors. However, the event will be held indoors and overhead lighting will be provided. 3. Event is scheduled to end at 7pm. No vendor can begin breakdown before 7pm. Vendors must be completely packed up & off the premises no later than 8:30pm. 4. Street parking is available. We ask that you leave the spots closest to the venue open for our shoppers. 5. We will have raffle prizes throughout the event. We're asking each vendor to donate at least 1 item. This is not required but recommended. The more items you donate, more people will get to go home with your awesome goodies. 6. Should you be accepted as a vendor, a liability form will be emailed to you and must be signed and returned to us upon arrival to the event. 7. If you have any extra items that are not being displayed on your table, these items must be hidden underneath your table/behind your tablecloth. We ask that you keep your displayed merchandise on your table (not on the floor/walls) unless you have prior approval from us. 8. A seller's permit is not required but we would recommend it. It's a great thing to have just in case, especially if you plan on being a vendor in the future. 9. If there are any free spaces or if we have any vendor no-shows, you may be able to purchase extra space, depending on what's available. 10. Remember to stay close to your table. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen items/goods. You can have an additional person at your table but, because space is limited, we ask that you only have 1 chair per table. 11. This event is geared towards adults. We ask that vendors either leave their children at home or have their children only attend as a guest with other adult supervision. 12. Payment can be sent as soon as you are approved but is due in full on or before February 26, 2013. Payment can be sent as a ‘gift’ through PayPal to alittleknowncraft@gmail.com. If payment isn’t received in the required timeframe, you may lose your spot as a vendor. 13. The event is located near residential units and we ask that the noise stays at a reasonable level so that it does not disturb neighboring occupants. 14. Vendors are responsible for keeping their areas clean. Please remove and dispose of any and all trash before packing up to go home. 15. There will be one (1) unisex restroom available for all guests. We will provide seat covers, toilet paper, soap, and paper towels. Please be mindful when using these supplies & please also help us to keep the area clean. 16. If you are approved to use wall space, we ask that you only use ‘Command Strips’ so we do not destroy or damage the walls in the gallery. 17. Free Wi-Fi will be available at the event. The password will be provided the day of the event. 18. We cannot guarantee sales but we do our best to advertise & attract shoppers. 19. The theme for this event is “Craftsablanca.” If you would like to sell or decorate your table with a vintage movie/Casablanca theme, you’re more than welcome to. 20. The gallery is a smoke-free environment. Patrons can smoke outside but need to be at least 200 yards away from our doors. Please do not leave trash on the ground/in the street and be respectful of neighboring occupants and their properties. 21. If you have paid but do not show up on the day of the event, we will not refund your event fees. If you need to cancel, please give us at least a 72 hour notice to be eligible for a refund. 22. We aim to have a variety of goods available for purchase. If we receive too many applications for jewelry vendors, for example, we may not be able to accept each applicant but will keep those applicants in mind for future events. 23. This is a homegrown organization so we rely heavily on word-of-mouth and social media advertising, not only by our coordinators, but also vendors/artists. We ask & urge you to share our event flyer, Facebook event, tweets, posts, etc. Remember to ‘like’ our Facebook page (facebook.com/ALittleKnownCraft), follow us on Twitter (twitter.com/alilknowncraft), follow us on Instagram (instagram.com/alittleknowncraft), and follow our blog (alittleknowncraft.blogspot.com) We love this gallery space & its management staff. We ask that each of you be mindful & respectful of the space and its owners so that we can continue having events at this venue. We appreciate your ongoing support. Thank you!
