Set Up/Take Down:
Load in and set up time begins at 9:30am. All vendors must be set up 15 minutes prior to opening times of the market. Vendors are to check-in with market organizers to be notified of their booth location. No location change requests on the day of, however please be flexible if we need to make adjustments to the floor plan for cancellations, etc. Please be on time and respectful of each other and the space. Late arrivals that cannot comply to set up times will be asked to leave. There is no parking on site. There is no wifi on site. Vendors are to remain set up until the market closes, no early take down.
Notice of cancellation must be provided and confirmed by the market organizers to email@example.com at a minimum of 72 hours prior to market date in order for a vendor booth fee to be fully refunded. If done in less than 72 hours, the vendor booth fee will be forfeited with no refund given. No shows means forfeit of the vendor fee. Please reach out if there are unforeseen circumstances, we want to work with you as best we can.
*if by chance the weather is totally unbearable, as determined by the market organizers, we will cancel and reschedule for Sun Nov 28th.*
Booth Display Guidelines:
The location is outdoors in a courtyard space, so no tents are permitted. Imagine pretty greenery and twinkle lights. Each booth space has room for a table/rack set up, so approx 6-8 feet wide & approx 3-4 feet deep. If your set up configuration doesn't quite match those elements, reach out via email and we can discuss a way to make it work. All tables must have tablecloths/fabric that reach the ground to help create a clean look. All packaging, or storage containers must be hidden away during market hours. Grand Stories Market events have many moving parts. Please be aware that you may be asked to re-configure or even move your booth if a cancellation occurs. No power outlets will be available for any market dates or locations. Vendors are to bring all that's required to set up their booths.
*if you attended our previous markets, take note that the booth spaces are a bit smaller as tents are not in use.*
We've included a few example photos of booth set ups to get your creative juices flowing. We are looking for a vintagey, boho vibe throughout the Grand Stories Market experience, something to keep in mind when designing your booth space.
Also, we offer a Booth Design Consultation for $20 (+tax) for 30-45 min meeting/call/facetime/emaiI to help answer any questions you may have about your booth design.
We want to help ensure that everything runs smoothly on markets days for both our vendors and our customers, markets are such a fun experience! Should you have any questions regarding these guidelines, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
