VENDORS

VENDORS!


I want to be a vendor! How do I sign up?


Send us an email to SouthEastPFM@gmail.com. Please let us know which event you are interested in. Include your business name, website/social media links and a few pictures of your artwork or items you plan to sell at your booth. Not all vendors are a good fit for the SEPFM or will be allowed to join us. Once you have been approved, you will receive instructions on when and how to purchase a space. If you purchase a space before you are approved, you will be denied and refunded. Don’t forget to join our mailing list and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for new event announcements. 



How much is a booth?


Instead of charging a set fee for all events, we try to keep the fees as low as we possibly can for the vendors. All vendor fees vary and are unique to the venue we are using. 



Most of our events are 2 days...


If you sign up for a 2 day space, you need to be present both days from start to finish! Also, do not pack up and leave hours early. This can start a chain reaction and gives folks the impression the event is ending for the day. We do understand if you sold out of everything, that's great! Please let us know you are gone for the day on your way out.



You’ve never been to one of our events but want to be a vendor?


That’s okay! You can still join us as a vendor. If you are brand new to doing markets, we suggest joining us for one of our smaller, locally aimed events. Vendor fees for these events usually range from $20-40 and offer free admission for the public. These events allow new vendors to learn the easy way and try things at little risk.



Want to be featured on our social media?


Sure! If you are a vendor at an upcoming PFM, we would love to share your photos with our followers on Facebook and Instagram. Send us your best photos of your work along with Facebook/Instagram tags and we will do our very best to share them. We have a lot of material to post and opportunities are limited, so don’t take it personally if we don’t get to post yours right away.  Stick around for awhile!



We do not offer refunds once you have registered to be a vendor for any of our events! Fees are non-transferrable.


Each event is unique and features 100+ vendors. It takes us many hours to sort through the hundreds of emails we receive each week to find artists and sellers who are a great fit for the SEPFM. Be sure you will be able to be at the event you sign up for. If you book a 2 day space and do not show up the first day, you cannot come the second day and expect to set up in your space. You cannot sell your space to someone else. If someone that was not pre-approved by us shows up in your place they will not be allowed to set-up and you will be banned from joining us for future events. 



I waited too long to book my space and now it’s sold out!


That’s too bad and it happens. We still want you to join us, you just might have to wait until next time. You can ask to be added to our waiting list. As the event approaches, a few vendors may drop off. In that case we will go down the list in order to begin filling those spaces.



We do not accept all vendors.


We are looking for artists, makers, vintage clothes/toys/household items, comic books, retro games, diy sellers, small/local businesses, etc. No MMM! If you are franchised or corporate backed, this is not for you. No paparazzi jewelry, scentsy or other similar product lines. We do not accept information tables. We also do not allow vendors who sell tobacco related products or vendors who sell weapons of any kind including guns, knives, etc. Art and/or display items are allowed.



COVID-19


If a PFM is cancelled due to COVID-19, venues are allowing us to move the event to a later date. Once the new date is set, you will be notified. If you cannot join us for the rescheduled event, you can receive a refund.



MASKS REQUIRED AT ALL SEPFM EVENTS!


We require all crew members, vendors and attendees to wear masks while inside and in areas where crowds gather. We really don’t care about your opinion on this matter. We are doing what we have to so we can continue to host our events. If you really don’t want to wear a mask, don’t come out. No one is making you come to the PFM, so your argument won’t work at the door. If you are seen not wearing a mask inside, you will be asked to leave. If you are a vendor and you are not following this rule, you will be asked to pack up and leave and you will not be allowed to participate in future events. We don’t offer refunds for ignorance.
