Who can apply to be a vendor?
You can! If you’re an experienced dealer/designer, or even if you have NO experience at selling. You can apply! Tinsel & Twine is interested in anything Fresh, Unique and Franklin-friendly. We are especially interested in great sellers that have the following:
- Amazing creativity and fresh ideas - Big stuff, little stuff, unique stuff - Up-cycled items and architectural salvage - Antique or vintage furniture, accessories, textiles - Vintage clothing and jewelry, or jewelry using vintage components - High quality artisan crafts and handmade goods
We want our show to be unique and to highlight the individual talents you have. We are choosing NOT to include distributors, multi-level home businesses, or mass-produced goods. We want all merchandise to keep in line with the urban vintage market feel of our Sale.
How are vendors selected?
I review all applications as they are submitted and carefully choose those that fit. We want to offer quality goods that meet trendy expectations as well as unique one-of-a-kind items that are not likely to be repeated.
How do I submit my photos for the application?
You may use our online application to submit your pictures, as well as list your Facebook, Etsy, or other online gallery of pictures. If you are unable to use the online application, you may email your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictures are worth a thousand words. Please choose your pictures carefully and make sure what you are sending is up to date with your most recent inventory.
How will I know if I've been accepted or not?
You will receive an email confirmation that your online or mailed in application has been received. You should receive an update within two weeks of your application notifying you of your status. If you are accepted, you will receive an email and details for completing your acceptance.
How much are the spaces for the two day sale?
Cost is $100 total for both days. You will be given a 10 x 10 space to set up tables, displays, chairs, etc… Tents, table and chairs will NOT be provided for you. Space is limited!
Do I need a tent?
Because of the layout of the event or if you require a larger amount of space (for a greater cost). You may choose to bring your own tent …12 X 12 but no larger than 15 X 15 white pop up tent (this will be indicated in your vendor acceptance letter). If a tent is needed, make sure it may be securely placed so wind & other elements will not blow it away. Also, come prepared to be warm! We will have hot cocoa, cider and other sources of warmth... but no doubt it will be chilly and people will be in full holiday buying mode.
Can I share a space?
You sure can. Up to 2 vendors can share a space, but both must submit an application with photos of their proposed items and both must be accepted. All fees will need to be paid in full by one individual, not separately.
How do I pay for my space?
Approved vendors will be sent a payment link through PayPal and instructions via email or the option to mail your personal check to MARY COLLINS 4007 Farmville Court Spring Hill TN 37174. Payment must be received within 10 business days of your emailed acceptance to confirm your participation.
