We will be taking applications for our Holiday Shopping Spectacular 2013 right here, September 7-October 4. The event takes place November 23-24.
Before filling out the application, please carefully read the Terms & Conditions. By filling out the application you are agreeing to the following:
Terms & Conditions
Thanks for your interest in participating in the Indie Craft Experience. All items sold at the Indie Craft Experience must be handmade or vintage. This is a juried event with a limited number of slots. We receive many applications and cannot accept everyone. The application deadline is October 4, 2013. We will send out notifications by October 12th. If you are not accepted your money will be promptly returned to you after October 12th. We will not consider your application if it is not complete or if we receive it after the deadline. A complete application includes all the information we request below, including photos, plus payment.
The fee to participate is $250 ($10 processing fee + $240). This amount is due with your application. Once accepted, you will be given the option to rent tables ($10 each) and chairs ($5 each) from us to use during the event. This is optional, you can bring your own.
If you are not accepted $240 will be promptly returned to you after October 12th. There is a $10 processing fee.
For those accepted, we offer a short grace period after acceptance emails are sent out. This is the only opportunity to receive a refund. If accepted, but you are unable to participate we will offer a refund of $240 if you notify us by October 16th. After October 16th we cannot offer a refund – no exceptions.
If the event is canceled due to severe weather, other Acts of God or conditions beyond the control of the Indie Craft Experience, your fee will not be refunded to you.
You may share a space with another vendor, BUT you must apply together. This is a juried event so we must approve both of you. Put info about both vendors on one application and include photos from each of you.
Each vendor will have a space that is 6 ft. wide x 5 ft. deep. Vendors are responsible for their entire display: tables, chairs, table clothes, racks, etc. This includes hauling and setting up your display. We have an extremely small staff, and it is your responsibility to haul your belongings and to set up & break down your display.
Day of the Event:
The event takes place Saturday, November 23 – Sunday, November 24 at Ambient Plus Studio in Atlanta’s West End neighborhood from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Set up will be done on a staggered schedule Saturday morning which we will send out after vendors are accepted. Ambient Plus has a very small load-in area so it is very important that everyone respect the time slot they are given. This schedule will be tight and everyone needs their allotted amount of time.
Please, do not break down early. You are expected to remain set up until 6 p.m. both days. If you break down early we may not be able to accept you for future shows. If you have to break down early due to an emergency please let us know (even if it is via email after the fact).
Once you are accepted, we will ask you to send swag for the 500 swag bags that we will distribute to attendees. This is a great way to get your information in the hands of a lot of people! Swag can be anything that promotes your business: stickers, business cards, postcards, fun stuff, etc. This is not mandatory, but strongly encouraged. Swag will be due November 15th, and further information will be sent to accepted vendors.
The Indie Craft Experience believes that providing a safe and secure environment for the event is very important. Security will be hired for the event (including move-in, move-out, over night and the hours of the event). We do not take responsibility for anything stolen or damaged during any portion of the event.
The Indie Craft Experience is not responsible for personal injury or any items damaged or stolen during the duration of the event (including move-in, move-out, over night and the hours of the event). It is the responsibility of each vendor to transport their belongings and to not leave valuables unattended. Vendors can leave their tables, chairs and display items over night, but we strongly encourage taking your merchandise home with you. The Indie Craft Experience is not responsible for your belongings.
