Please read the information below before confirming for the Summer Trade & Lore Mini-Pop Up Shop.



June 21 - July 1
Trade & Lore Coffee
Downtown Asheville, NC



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.

Vendors will drop off their inventory: Tuesday, June 19th from 12-8pm

Vendors will pick up any remaining inventory after the end of the Pop Up Shop: Tuesday, July 3rd from 12-8pm


Not local? For those who are shipping your inventory, please have items sent to the following address on or before Monday, June 18th:

Stephanie Mergelsberg
164 Hillside Street, Apt 6
Asheville, NC 28801



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.



To participate in the following Pop Up Shop, vendors agree to a 50/50 split of total sales.

All vendors will receive a check for their final earnings along with a simple sales summary of items sold issued on or before: Monday, July 9th.

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



We will be using all of our social media outlets (Instagram, Pinterest, Blog, Website, and Facebook) to feature vendors. Each vendor 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.



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.
