Vendor Questions

How does the vendor application process work?

Our markets are juried and are carefully curated to create a one-of-a-kind market. 

Applications for our Spring Market will open up on February 11 and close February 25. We will alert all applicants whether they have been accepted for a space at the Spring Market by March 1.

All applications will be reviewed by our team. Applicants are judged on the quality, creativity, originality, and branding of their wares, in order to maintain an eclectic, complementary mix of vendors and artisans.  We are committed to curating a diverse and interesting market to draw the largest number of serious customers.

There is more demand then we have room for, so please understand that we cannot accept everyone. 

 

What are the different vendor booth options?

There are three different vendor/booth options available, and we’ve listed them out below. Each booth price includes the cost of the required white pole tents that all Holiday Flea vendors must use.

  • Tier One: $2,000 for a 10x20 booth space, plus preferred location selection and marketing perks

  • Tier Two: $1,000 for a 10x10 booth space, plus preferred location selection and marketing perks

  • Tier Three: $500 for a 10x10 booth space

 

How do I apply and submit payment? 

All interested sellers, including past vendors, must do two things: fill out an application and submit a $30 non-refundable application fee at the end of the application. 

 

Can I share a booth? 

Yes, but no more than two vendors to a booth. Both vendors in the shared booth must submit their own respective application and $30 non-refundable application fee, along with a note about your booth applicant's info in the application - name, website, etc. Both Vendors must be approved by the jury in order to be accepted.

If you and your booth partner are accepted to the Spring Market, the booth share fee is an additional $50 on top of the price of the booth. 

If you initially apply without a booth partner and would like to add one later on, you must email the Denver Flea team with the update and have the shared booth partner approved. 

 

Is my application fee refundable? 

The $30 application fee is non-refundable, and is used to cover the growing admin and staff costs associated with reviewing the hundreds and hundreds of applications for each show. 

**Should you be accepted, the application fee is NOT applied towards the cost of your Spring Market booth.

 

If I was not accepted to previous markets, can I apply again?

Yes! We will be opening a new round of registration for each Market and will review all applicants for each round. So, if you are not chosen to be a vendor for a specific show in the past, we encourage you to apply again. 

 

What comes with my booth if I am selected to be a vendor?

We will have tables available for rent. Otherwise, vendors are responsible for bringing all other furniture (i.e. chairs), fixtures, and décor to define their space .

 

What if I need to cancel?

If you need to cancel you must notify us via email. To receive a FULL refund you must email us within one week after you are notified of your acceptance. If you cancel after this point we will apply 50% of your Booth Fee as a credit for the next show and you forfeit the other half of the payment. Any cancellations within two weeks of the event will not get a refund – you forfeit your fee and spot.

 

Will electricity and Wi-Fi be available during the event? 

We are working to figure out the electricity and Wi-Fi availability at our future events.

 

How does vendor load-in work?

We typically offer vendor load-in over the course of several days leading up to the event. We will send the exact days/times for load-in 1-2 weeks before the Market weekend. 

 

What do I need to know abut permits and taxes as a Flea vendor? 

We recommend that your business complies with your local tax regulations by registering your business, collecting sales tax, and reporting and remitting sales tax. While we cannot offer specific guidance about tax compliance, if you have questions we recommend you consult with an accountant or www.irs.gov for more details.

 

Do I have to live in Denver to participate?

No, our goal is to get people to buy and support independent design and small business owners. Most Flea vendors reside in Colorado, but we accept people from all over the country, and love sharing great talent from all around!
