VENDOR APPLICATION

Interested in being a vendor at a Creatively Lancaster Makers Market? Great! You're in the right place. Before you apply, please take a moment to review the info below about who we are (and are not) looking for and what to expect as a Market vendor. 

 

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOr

We're looking for makers of all kinds - crafters, bakers, upcyclers, artists, sculptors, painters, musicians, inventors, etc. If you make anything, you could be a vendor! More specifically, if you use the following words to describe your business, we're looking for you:

  • Handcrafted
  • Unique
  • One-of-a-kind
  • Small-batch, small-scale
  • Artisan
  • Quality
  • Professional
  • Etsy Shop Owner
  • Micro-business, Micro-enterprise or Start-up

The Makers Market is a curated show. Though we love makers of all kinds, unfortunately we cannot accept all applicants due to space constraints. We do our best to select a diverse group of quality makers at each event. Acceptance into previous shows does not guarantee acceptance to future shows. 

 

who we are not looking for

If you use the following words to describe your business, unfortunately this is not the market for you:

  • Reseller
  • Direct Sales
  • Vintage Vendor (Sorry vintage vendor friends! We love vintage but being a Maker's Market, we can only accept makers. No resellers of any kind. If you're interested in other local shows accepting vintage vendors, please email us! We're happy to give you a list of our favs.)

In addition, we do not allow unprofessionalism, negativity, political paraphernalia, or illegal items/sentiments. We are a community of makers who support and encourage one another. As such, we will fiercely protect our community from any person(s) whose attitude is uncooperative, unsupportive, aggressive, demeaning, or degrading. Don't be that person. 

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

As a vendor at the Makers Market expect to connect with a community of like-minded creatives and an enthusiastic customer base excited to shop your wares! 

Vendors are responsible for providing all the necessary elements for their display (tables, chairs, and a trash can, if you are a food vendor). Tables and chairs can be rented for a nominal fee. Please let us know in the Additional Comments section of the application if you are interested in renting a table or chairs.
