a little about the market....
This is our 3RD SHOP OC Market and we couldn't be more excited about it! We are still in the beginning stages of planning for this awesome event but here is what planned so far: A Mimosa bar will be available for guests to enjoy, all VIP guests & vendors receive a free trip to the mimosa bar, for all other guests it is $6 per mimosa. Complementary Donut wall for all guests to indulge in! Entertainment and fun is still being worked out and planned, but for those of you who visited last year, our famous "pet shop" will be returning, along with our “Fun Zone!” All details are still being planned and fine tuned and you will be updated when more information has been decided.
This year you have five options for vendor size…we have expanded our market! We will know be hosting the SHOP OC Market upstairs in the grand ballroom, PLUS downstairs(the ballroom located right next to our registration table) downstairs!
-6ft tables UPSTAIRS($120)
-6x8[6ft wide by 8ft deep] DOWNSTAIRS($150)
-6ft tables DOWNSTAIRS($100)
Once you have submitted your application you will be notified through email. Each product genre has limited space to ensure a market with a VARIETY of handmade goodness. So, we are approving applications on a first come, first serve basis from returning vendors first, and then opening to the public. The shops to send in applications first will get the space available. You will receive an email with a link on where & how to purchase and reserve your booth if you have been approved. You have 48 hours to purchase your booth. However, if a shop is approved for purchase and they do not purchase within 48 hours it will go to the next shop in line in their product genre.
PLEASE NOTE as there are a few changes to our application process this season….you MUST have some form of social media account for your business! Whether its your personal account IG, FB page, or website. There must be a way for you to promote the market through social media. We are an intimate market and the reason we are successful is because our maker’s promote and advertise for the event! All of our shops, and us, work SO HARD promoting and posting, and supporting this event. This is what makes us strong and successful! Donating SWAG is another great way to help promote our event, so PLEASE try to be able to do this as a vendor! Even the littlest amount helps! We may not be your largest market, but we are unique, we are mighty, and we work hard. Working together is what makes this market so strong and amazing to be a part of!
