spring pop up shop

May 8-19
Asheville Social Hall
Downtown Asheville, NC

 

SET UP

There are no booths! Vendors drop off your inventory and we'll transform the venue into a retail pop up shop with a central checkout - creating a curated boutique experience our shoppers have come to love.

Vendors do NOT have to be at the Pop Up Shop! Our team will merchandise, style, and work the entirety of the Pop Up Shop.

Accepted vendors will drop off their inventory: Monday, May 6 | 12-7pm

Vendors will pick up any remaining inventory after the end of the Pop Up Shop: Tuesday, May 21 | 12-7pm

Not local? We have an option for vendors to ship their inventory to us on or before the respective drop-off dates. If interested in this option, vendors will assume all postage charges to/from the Pop Up Shop. 

 

INVENTORY

Accepted vendors will be assigned a vendor ID. All products must be marked with your Vendor ID and price. All vendors must supply the Pop Up Shop with a simple inventory spreadsheet - a valuable resource at the checkout. Templates and directions will be emailed upon acceptance.

Please note that vendors are accepted based on product pictures and descriptions submitted via your application. Any items not matching those descriptions dropped off will be placed at the discretion of the Pop Up Shop Team.

 

FEES & PAYMENT

To participate in the Holiday Pop Up Shop, vendors pay a fee of: $75 + 25% commission of sales

We have a limited number of available work trade opportunities. We will let those interested know about those opportunities and details at a future date.

You may be eligible to have a waived vendor fee (but not the commission fee) if you qualify for one of the following:

Fine Art Vendor Scholarship

Vendors who are considered “Fine Artists” may qualify for a waiver of your booth fees if a majority of your sellable goods are original Fine Art pieces; the rest of your pieces may be prints or other products for sale. Items must be high quality, one-of-kind pieces.

Food Vendor Scholarship

Vendors who are considered “Food Vendors” may qualify for a waiver of your booth fees if a majority of your sellable goods are perishable food items.

Young Entrepreneur Scholarship

If you are under the age of 18 and would like to participate, you are eligible for a waiver of your booth fees.

If you wish to apply under any of these categories but are unsure if your work qualifies, we will let you know if you do not qualify and reassign you to another category.

Accepted vendors will be notified on: Friday, March 22

You will be sent an invoice for payment upon acceptance which will be due: Monday, April 8

All vendors will receive a check their final earnings along with a simple sales summary of items sold. The check will be mailed on or before Saturday, June 1 and mailed to the address included in your application.

Sales tax will be collected and paid by us for all the items sold.

 

REFUND & CANCELLATION POLICY

We understand stuff comes up, so for those who decide not to participate, we will refund your fees until: Monday, April 8. After said date, fees are non-refundable.

 

ADVERTISEMENT

We will be using all of our social media outlets (Instagram, Website, and Facebook) to feature vendors. Please make sure you send high quality photos when you apply, so that we may pull from these. Each maker will receive a media kit that we encourage you to use on social media.

We will release announcements to the press, publish the event on online and print calendars, do extensive social media advertising, as well as place posters and postcards all around Asheville leading up to the event.

 

THEFT & LIABILITY

We will do everything within our power to prevent theft of products and displays, but we cannot guarantee that items will not go missing or get broken. Although inventory lists are supplied by vendors, we do not verify whether the numbers, descriptions, and/or prices match the physical inventory dropped off. Our team will make every effort to prevent any incidents. However we cannot be held responsible if theft or damage does occur.
