When? Saturday, December 10, 11:00 am to 8:00 pm and Sunday, December 11, 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Where? Wall Street, downtown Spartanburg. Yes, we will be outdoors.
What does it cost? Accepted vendors will pay $100 for both Saturday and Sunda, or $75 for Saturday, and $50 for Sunday. In the likelihood of receiving more applications than we can host we will likely give precedence to vendors interested in both days.
What will my fee include? You will get your own spot in 10ft x 10ft tent and one 6ft table.
Interested in partnering with another vendor? We welcome you to partner with another vendor, but you must find the willing partner and apply together. You will still receive the same supplies as a single vendor because you will still pay the same cost. If you are partnering with another vendor please indicate so in your application in the area provided.
What about business licensing? In order to make this cost effective for all participants we've decided to handle all the sales. We will release more specifics to those who are accepted into the market, but the general plan is that all shoppers will check out with a HUB-BUB representative and at the end of the day we will reimburse each vendor for their sales. To handle your own sales you would need to acquire a business license from the City of Spartanburg, adding $55 to your fees.
Will electricity be available? Yes. If you anticipate needing access to electricity, please let us know within your application and plan to bring utility cables. We will provide minimal lighting. If your display requires additional lighting, you must bring your own.
Set Up. We will release specific setup information and times to those accepted to the market. We cannot provide storage nor guarantee the safety of your materials overnight, so we will ask that you pack your items and supplies even if you are going to be present for both days.
Parking. There is free street parking near Wall Street that you may use for loading and unloading. But we will require that you move your vehicle for the duration of the market to allow for other downtown traffic to use street parking.
Will people from HUB-BUB help me unload/pack up? Sorry, no. We’ll be tending to event-wide set up and clean up. It is your responsibility to set up/break down your booth and belongings. No trace of your set-up should be left behind unless you rent a table from us.
Vendors must be present for the duration of the show. Early breakdown is not permitted.
MARKETING: We will be marketing via our website, social media, local media outlets (TV, newspaper, etc.), and e-mail blasts. When you receive your acceptance to the market we highly encourage you to market the heck out of it! Along with your acceptance you will receive some basic marketing materials including visual collateral, event description, etc.
