How can I participate?
If you are interested in becoming a vendor, you will need to fill out an online application that includes a $10 non-refundable application fee.
Why is there an application fee?
Knotted is a curated show which means that each applicant is reviewed and selected carefully so that we can offer show-goers a completely diverse and quality experience. The $10 non-refundable application fee goes towards the processing of all applications we receive. This does not guarantee a space in the show. If accepted, the application fee will go towards the cost of your space.
What do I get?
VENDOR SPACE DETAILS
6′ Vendor Table – The cost is $250 and includes a 6′x30″ banquet table with two chairs. Table linens are not included. The decorating aspect of your table is completely up to you. You are highly encouraged to go nuts! If you'd like to skip the table all together, go for it! Just let us know and you will instead have a 6′ x 6′ space to work with and create a display in. Electricity may be available, please let us know ahead of time if you require it.
In addition to your vendor space, each vendor will receive free web advertising with a photo and link on our website for a year, a list of opted-in attendees, vendor features on our social media plus a pin on our Pinterest board.
Is there electricity or WiFi?
Electricity is available throughout the space, but we can not guarantee it. So, please let us know if it is absolutely necessary for you. WiFi is available. Specific information is given to vendors in their vendor packets after their acceptance into the show.
Can I share a booth?
We will assess this on a case by case basis. If you feel that both businesses meet our guidelines for what we're looking for, do apply (together with ONE APPLICATION), and mention that you're interested in sharing a table. If only one business is accepted and the other is not, you will have the option to keep the table or let it go.
How will I know if I have been selected?
Each vendor will be notified of their acceptance, via email. We will have a waiting list for those whose work we LOVE but just don't have enough space for. Everyone who applies is, unfortunately, not guaranteed acceptance.
Do I need a vendor permit or license?
All vendors are required to be licensed, legal businesses within their home state. By participating in the event, you are responsible for registering with the IRS and filing appropriate taxes.
**Food or alcohol vendors are required to provide additional certification and must have appropriate permits to serve offsite.
Do I need insurance?
The event space provides insurance for those selling at the event.
What if I have to drop out?
For the event to be as successful and fantastic as we're expecting, we need your full commitment. That being said, we know life happens, and have a refund policy in place. If accepted, you have 3 weeks prior to the event, to cancel for a 50% refund. After that, no refunds will be granted. Your $10 application fee is non-refundable under any circumstance.
