POP UP VENDOR CRITERIA
Thank you for your interest in selling at Gallery On Main! In order to ensure we offer our customers the best products and experience vendors must meet the criteria for selling at our pop-up events. We not only want to provide the best customer experience but also inspire our vendors to take their businesses to the next level. Please read over our requirements before filling out your application.
Contact us if you have any questions. Thank you!
All vendors MUST have:
• original product, service, or brand
• updated website or landing page and/or a social media page with a clear message and photos of your product
• mobile POS (Square, Shopify, Paypal, etc)
Here is an in depth rundown of what we're looking for when we make our vendor selections:
From your in-person presence and table presentation, to online store and social media, to your products packaging; we love brands that are aesthetically welcoming and engaging to customers. Almost as important as a quality product, is quality branding. The attention to detail and care that goes into how you present your product makes all the difference for a successful market experience. A strong brand identity is something that sticks with us, as well as future customers, and makes you and your goods easily recognizable.
First and foremost we're looking for quality makers, brands, and designers. From your actual product or service, to the materials and process, photography, final packaging and merchandising. Our market is looking to help grow our vendors past just the market day. A quality product that a customer feels good about purchasing is what keeps our market go-ers coming back. We want an array of great vendors and products that make an impact on the customer to ultimately lead to sales for you, the vendor, and hopefully repeat and loyal customers!
We know there are a plethora of overlapping categories, so we try to avoid having too many "same product" vendors at each event. We are always on the lookout for novel takes on a classic product or service and especially love seeing the original ways our makers take their brands to the next level.
LOCAL & SMALL BIZ
Generally speaking, we are looking for vendors whose products are made or designed by you OR if you're a local retailer, your goods have been curated by you and/or ethically made or sourced. We are supporters of the small business in all aspects, but for our market, we want to be sure all of the vendors are personally responsible for the goods they're selling. Whether that means being made by your own hand, curated and stocked carefully, or you know where your product came from and who made it. We're striving for locally made, designed, and ethically sourced.
We are not accepting vintage resale vendors or vendors who are third-party sellers, multi-level marketing, or large corporation consultants.
HOW MUCH IS THE VENDOR FEE?
The vendor fee is $25/day. Tables are not provided. We can provide chairs. Our vendor fee covers labor and overhead costs to organize and staff the event. Vendor fees will be due upon registration.
