They'res nothing like a hometown shopping experience!
Our vendors work tirelessly to provide our community with unique and one-of-a-kind items that are sure to satisfy any shopper looking for a gift for the person who has everything! Some vendors offer brand new products ranging from clothes and furniture to jewelry, handmade household items, toys, and personal hygiene items. Other vendors specialize in collectible items and others in antiques, preowned furniture and vintage finds.
How Does Being a Vendor Work?
Basically -- there are two size standard booths (small is 4'x6' and large is 6'x8') and then two really big booths. You can check out the floor plan >>here<< . You put your inventory in your booth and decorate it all nice and then we do the rest! We have a security system and a centralized checkout process where we accept cash and credit cards and we handle paying all the sales tax. We promote and market the store and our vendors! It's like an indoor mall but you don't have to worry about selling -- you just get to focus on making beautiful things!
Do I Have to Be in My Booth the Whole Time Your Open?
NOPE! In fact - you don't need to be in your booth at all! You just showcase your inventory, and we run the store. Win-Win
How Do I Know If I Sold Something / When Do I Get Paid?
We have a really awesome software package that allows our vendors to check as often as they want online to see what items sold and how much your consignment check will be. We issue checks (direct deposits) between the 7th-10th day of each month. Your consignment checks are for everything you sold in the previous month, minus your booth rental.
How Do I Become a Vendor?
WOOHOO! We love new vendors! First, you have to fill out the online application, make sure to send in your photos of your products with your application. Then we will make an appointment with you and have you come in with some of your samples. We like to have a really good variety of items for our customers and not over-saturate with artists so that each booth is unique and stands out. Once you are chosen, you get to sign your lease -- all new vendors are required to sign a minimum of a 3-month lease. If your booth needs electricity in your stall, there is a one-time fee of $100. You are required to give a deposit and your first-month booth rental when you sign your contract - and then you can move right into your space and start selling!
