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 - artisans, crafters, bakers, upcyclers, sculptors, painters, inventors, designers, photographers, 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 | Handmade | Artisan
Unique | One-of-a-kind
Small-batch | Small-scale
Modern | Trendy
Quality | Professional
Micro-business | Micro-enterprise | Etsy shop owner | Start-up
The Makers Market is a curated market. 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.
Vendors are selected based on product appeal to our target audience, professionalism, online presence, modern aesthetic, uniqueness, and availability within the product category. Acceptance into previous shows does not guarantee acceptance to future shows.
WHO WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR:
All items sold at the market must be handmade. If you use the following words to describe your business, unfortunately this is not the market for you:
Direct Sales | Multi-level Marketing
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.)
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). Electric and WIFI are not guaranteed and dependent on venue availability.
All applicants are contacted a week after the application deadline as to the status of their application. If accepted, payment is due within 2 weeks. Payment is non-refundable.
