The Indie Craft Experience’s Salvage will be April 13, 2013. This is a juried event, and we are seeking vendors to sell vintage clothing, decor, home goods, furniture, books, records, collections and more representing all decades. Because of our passion for handmade (we have organized the Indie Craft Experience, a large indie craft market, since 2005), we will accept a small number of artists/crafters to participate in Salvage. A vintage aesthetic is what we are looking for. Items can be repurposed out of vintage materials, but we are not specifically seeking repurposed goods, and the aesthetics are the most important trait.
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 Salvage. All items sold at Salvage must be vintage (or vintage-inspired handcrafted items). This is a juried event with a limited number of slots. We receive many applications and cannot accept everyone. The application deadline is February 22. We will send out notifications by March 1st. If you are not accepted a refund of your payment will be initiated on March 1st. 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.
Fee: There are two booth sizes available for this event: 6’ w x 5’ d - $125 12’ w x 5’ d - $250 The vendor fees listed above are due with your application. When you hit submit you will be redirected to PayPal. 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.
Refunds: If you are not accepted your fee minus a $10 processing fee ($115 or $240) will be promptly returned to you. Refunds take a few days to clear but the process will be initiated on March 1st. 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 your payment minus a $10 processing fee ($115 or $240) if you notify us by March 8, 2013. After March 8th 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.
Space: The vendor spaces for the event are 6’ w x 5’ d and 12’ w x 5’ d. 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.
Sharing: 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 Vendor #2 in the “Sharing a Booth” section and include photos from each of you. Please make it clear which photos belong to which applicant.
Day of the Event: The event takes place Saturday, April 13th at Ambient Plus Studio in Atlanta’s West End neighborhood from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Set up will be done on a staggered schedule which we will send out after vendors are accepted. Ambient Plus has a 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. 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).
Swag Bags: Once accepted, we will ask you to send items for the swag bags that we will distribute to the first 100 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, bookmarks, 1” buttons, promos, etc. This is not mandatory, but strongly encouraged. Swag bag items will be due April 7th and further information about swag will be sent to accepted vendors.
Security: 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 and the hours of the event). The Indie Craft Experience and Ambient Plus Studio do not take responsibility for anything stolen or damaged during any portion of the event.
Responsibility: The Indie Craft Experience and Ambient Plus are not responsible for personal injury or any items damaged or stolen during the duration of the event (including move-in, move-out and the hours of the event). It is the responsibility of each vendor to transport their belongings and to not leave valuables unattended. The Indie Craft Experience and Ambient Plus are not responsible for your belongings.
