Holiday Market Gift Market
Welcome, and thank you for your interest in being a vendor at our 2nd annual Girls of Grace Holiday Market. This is a community event designed to showcase unique, quality merchandise from our vendors and provide a fabulous shopping experience for our guests! We look forward to bringing the best possible merchandise to our Holiday Market and making this a successful event for all. This year’s Holiday Market is a juried show and we will limit vendors in each category to ensure a variety of merchandise, while allowing each merchant maximum sale potential. Applications must be accompanied by a minimum of 3 photos (these will not be returned if sent in via mail, but we welcome electronic submissions) of your merchandise or booth at an event you have previously attended. Application deadline is November 1, payment MUST be received in full no later than November 3, 2017 or we will offer your space to an alternate vendor.
This year’s Holiday Market will be Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 9:00am – 4:00pm at the Cleburne Conference Center. We are offering indoor booths, a 10’x10’ space, for $75 with a $25 deposit. This $25 deposit will be refunded at the end of the event after completion of the show as long as you do not cancel prior to 30 days before the show, break down your booth early, or fail to clean up your booth space(s). We do not allow any booth sharing, so only one business per booth. Each vendor is allowed two workers per booth. All others will need to pay the admission charge. We encourage you to arrange childcare during this event, but if you must bring your children, they must stay with you in your booth area at all times, so as not to disturb other vendors & our shoppers. Please fill out the attached application and submit as soon as possible.
Additionally we have 2 kitchen spaces available, and will be offering booth space for food trucks, bounce houses, and plant sales outside the Conference Center. Indoor kitchens will be $100.00 with a $25 deposit. Outdoor spaces will be $75 with a $25 deposit. Deposits to be refunded at the end of the event after completion of the show as long as vendors do not cancel less than 30 days prior to the show, break down early, or fail to clean up their area. Food can only be sold if it was prepared in a pre-approved kitchen with a health permit, and you must purchase a temporary health food permit from the Cleburne Health Department (114 W. Wardville, P.O. Box 677 Cleburne, TX 76033 Ph: 817-645-0958 Fx: 817-645-0967). The cost of this permit is $35. You are able to give away samples to secure future business or sale food items for profit.
Each indoor vendor will be given a 10’ X 10’ area in the Cleburne Conference Center. Outdoor vendor areas will accommodate your food truck, children’s activities, or plants. NO TABLE OR CHAIRS will be provided for outdoor booths. You may decorate however you like as long as it fits in the allotted area, and follows the Cleburne Conference Centers Rules and Regulations. These rules can be found at www.cleburneconferencecenter.com. We encourage creative and decorative displays and set ups. We will have the Conference Center open at 7am for set up on the morning of the Holiday Market. We will also open up the night before, Friday, November 17th, from 4:00-9:00 pm so that you may begin your set up then. The Conference Center will be locked and secure overnight.
If you feel you may need more space you can purchase a second 10’ X10’ area for an additional $50, with no additional deposit. Please indicate below if you will need more space.
We will provide one 6 x 3 ft. table and 2 chairs per indoor booth space. Please indicate below if you will need electricity; this will be provided at no additional charge on a first come, first serve basis, as not all booths will have access to an outlet. Vendors MUST provide their own extension cords. Wifi is available at no additional charge throughout the building. You may bring additional tables, canopies, back drops, hanging racks, and other décor as needed, but they must fit into your space. ADDITIONAL TABLES ARE AVAILABLE FOR $5 EACH.
In the past, we have tried to accommodate vendor requests to have their booth in a certain location in the building or to be near certain requested vendors; we will not be able to accommodate such requests for this event. This includes requests to be along a wall or close to an exit. Booth locations will be determined by the need for electricity and on a first come, first served basis. We will send out booth assignment locations one week prior to the event, so that you will be aware of your location and can prepare accordingly for any decor/merchandise displays.
