JURIED

Our events are juried and vendor inclusion will be based on merchandise and displays matching our goal of offering Vintage, Repurposed, Unique, Antique, and Handmade Artisan goods to our shoppers.

Please include your social media sites on your application so that we can visit them and take a look at all of your hard work! If you are not on social media, you can email us photos of your work at Mary@DandyDonuts.com

Once accepted as a vendor, we will reach out to you for payment. We will secure your space only after your payment is received. Please be advised that all payments are non-refundable. A vendor packet will be waiting for you at check-in that will include a food voucher to be used at the restaurant.

 

BOOTHS AND DISPLAYS

Your booth and displays should reflect your unique offerings while maintaining an appealing, well organized, and inviting experience for our shoppers. We will be hosting on a lakeside setting, which means your space will be on grass. We recommend a tent if you have one, but it is not a requirement. Sorry, we do not rent tents.
