How can I get my work carried in your shop? We get many artists who are interested in having their line in our shop. We ask that you please do not bring work in person or leave work at our shop to be evaluated. We have a form you can submit for us to consider carrying your work and you can find it here. We do encourage people interested in having their work in the shop to first participate in our events, particularly if you are new to selling your wares.
How can I participate in your events? All of our events have an online application that must be submitted with payment. If applications are on the website, that means we are still accepting applications. Applications are curated and if you are not accepted, you will receive a refund for your booth fee payment only. Application fees are not refundable for any reason.
Will there be electricity? Bathrooms? Wifi? Electricity is not provided at any of our outdoor events and not guaranteed at indoor events. You may bring a super quiet generator, or if the event is indoors, request to be next to an outlet. You may not run cords or wires from at outlet to your booth if it is not near an outlet–it creates a dangerous situation for patrons who may trip and fall on the wires.
There is access to bathrooms or portapotties at all of our events.
We cannot guarantee access to wifi, especially at outdoor events. Even at indoor events, venue’s wifi often will not accommodate 50+ people trying to access it at once.
What is the attendance of your events? Attendance varies from 100-5K people depending on the event. Generally speaking, it is a good idea to scale your expectations based on the vendor fee–events with cheaper booth fees are likely to have less of a draw, while higher booth fees will have a larger crowd. However predicting turnout is difficult and we suggest you attend an event as a patron before participating as a vendor.
What about the weather? Indie South events are rain or shine events and we expect vendors to come prepared for wind, rain, and heat. We have never cancelled an event due to weather however we do not penalize vendors if they do not feel comfortable setting up in inclement weather. No refunds will be given in the event that weather makes it unappealing or unsafe to set up.
Booth Sharing: We do allow booth sharing, but we cannot pair you with a booth mate. Indie South allows up to three vendors to share a booth, however each vendor must be listed on the primary application and each vendor must pay a separate application fee. If we find vendors sharing booths who did not apply, it is grounds for future disqualification.
