Are you super stoked about Share the Flair and want to join the party? Make sure to read through all the information below and if you’re interested, head to the Apply page to fill out the vendor application form.
What is the event dates, hours and location?
Saturday, June 15: 10:00am to 6:00pm
The show will held at the Acacia Masonic Hall – 10433 – 83 Avenue
Edmonton, Alberta. Entry fee: $4 and kids 12 and under are free.
Do you have any information about vendor set up and tear down?
We will definitely send you more information once your application is approved.
Generally though, we love all local makers and appreciate everyone’s efforts, so keep your fellow table buddies in mind when you’re prepping your spot including staying within your allotted space. There also will be no pipes or drapes and you can’t adhere anything to the venue walls. You want to be ready to go at least 30 mins before the show begins (and maybe to sneak in time to do your own shopping as well!). Also for safety reasons, children under 12 years old are not allowed during set up and tear down.
It’s also a no-no to pack up and leave before the show ends. Just shows bad form to your fun table buddies and the event itself. Plus, it may affect your future acceptance to the show. If it is an emergency, please let us know at the event before packing up.
What do vendors get for the fee?
You will get an 8′ by 4′ space and one free 8′ table and chair. We do ask that all makers bring your best table display props, knick knacks and own table cloth. (Pssst….we have something extra special for those that show their best jazzed up table.)
Can vendors sell other things, other than pins and patches?
You sure can, but the focal point of the market is pins and patches. We will take it into consideration in your application if you indicate other items you’d like to sell.
Can I share a table with another maker?
We want it to be fair for all makers and so, unfortunately we don’t offer shared tables. If you’d like to be near your buddies at the show, feel free to add a note in your application. We can’t guarantee you’ll be beside each other, but we’ll try.
What forms of payment is there at the show?
Makers are responsible for their own payment methods. Share the Flair will not be able to provide change. Note: There is no ATMs on site in the building, but the hall is located in and around Whyte Ave so there should be ATMs in the neighbourhood. We’ll provide more details closer to the event date.
Where will my table be located?
I know, you really, really want to know, but we want it to be a fun experience for all and so we will have a floor plan available, but only on the day of the event set up. You can find your business name and corresponding number on the floor plan and our volunteers will help you locate it.
Will there be food and drink at the show?
We’re planning to have a few local vendors selling food and drink either inside the venue or outside in a food truck. We will keep you posted.
Can I apply to be a food vendor?
You sure can! Use the same form on the Apply page, but please note that once you are accepted as a food vendor, we will require a copy of your Alberta Health permit.
Where do vendors and customers park?
The hall is located in and around Whyte Ave, so available parking is street parking or nearby Impark parking. So we ask that after you unload your stuff, please park as far as you can from the venue or get dropped off / picked up. We also encourage public transportation as there is plenty of options.
Vendor Fee Payment Method:
Invoices will be emailed to all accepted vendors. We ask that you pay your fee within a week of vendor acceptance by email transfer to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember! Filling out the vendor application form doesn’t guarantee a spot for you.
Event Cancellation / Refund:
We understand life happens and you may have to cancel a show. To get a full refund, makers must cancel no later than 8 weeks before the event date. If you do cancel your table within the 8 weeks, we will be unable to provide a full refund and it will be determined on a case by case basis. A $30 administration fee will be charged on all refund requests.
Best Vendor Table Award:
We love how imaginative and inventive makers are and so we want to award one special maker with a surprise, fun prize! Strut your stuff and work it. Our organizers will come by sometime during the market to check out all the tables. Winner will be announced after the market has ended. We’ll have more details about the prize once applications are submitted.
Social Media Guru Award:
Share the excitement of the Share the Flair Pin & Patch show through social media and be rewarded with fun goodies. We will announce detailed instructions in the coming months.
Keep in mind, Share the Flair Pin & Patch Show reserves the right to make event updates and changes from now until the event itself. Sometimes life can bring obstacles, so sometimes changes may need to happen.
