Become a 2012 Barn Sale Vendor

The Purple Painted Lady is looking for unique artisans and vendors to join in on our
Barn Sale & Junk Jubilee 2013 madness!
Please read the following, then email Trish if interested- providing answers to the questions noted below

The Purple Painted Lady Barn Sale & Junk Jubilee will be hosted again in September 2013!
We had OVER 1700 guests attend our 2012 event!
And if you were a vendor in 2012- here is some awesome news…
Ralph will be BACK for our 2013 Barn Sale & Junk Jubilee!

This is a ONE day event, from 10am till 5pm.
Scroll further down this page to see details and a list of the 2012 artisans/vendors as they were showcased on our website.

* Our focus for the 2013 event will be to increase the variety and offerings and fine tune what we did – We are not looking so much to make it bigger- but rather BETTER! Searching for Artisan/Vendors that have either have unique hand crafted items, upcycled pieces, antiques, flashy gotta-have-it stuff, flea market finds or even junk. Yes, that is right…GLORIOUS JUNK! Also- farmers, wineries, cheese makers, bee keepers are all welcome!!!! We commit to kick butt PR that will attract even more people than the 1500 we had attend the 2012 event! Also- having a rockin’ band, we will promote you, assist you in set up, manage traffic, carry umbrella insurance, guarantee a variety of art and vendors, have a great selection of food vendors, and provide clean funky pot-a potties (if there is such a thing.) And in 2013 a hot air balloon and a special surprise that we will announce as we get close to the event (too much Barn Sale espionage out there and we don’t want this idea taken~ so you will have to be patient.)

* There is a minimal $40 vendor fee, paid in advance and we request a donated item worth $50 to be provided for the raffle (benefiting a local hard working non-profit that is not at the level of the BIG fish charities – like at the United Way level) The artisan / vendor fee is low on purpose! Why? We want to support you, your art and want you to make a profit! The fee will help us however with paying the band, PR, and securing the parking area across the street.

* There is always a rain date promoted with the event in case the original day of the event has a forecast of 50% or greater for thunderstorms. By paying your vendor fee and signing the vendor contract – you are acknowledging that date. If after signing the contract- your plans change on attending the sale or if the difficult decision is made to move the event to our rain date and you cannot attend for whatever reason — you forfeit your deposit. (why do we do this?)

1st I have spent your money! The band is about $800. Port-a-potties $250, advertising ~ $750) The money we collect from you does not cover all of our overhead costs- but that is okay. We are only asking for help with the costs, not total coverage.
2nd It is a commitment! There are many artists out there- Once I have signed on a couple different knitters- than no more are accepted. If you sign up and don’t show- I let down my customers in not providing them with enough variety, there was a missed opportunity for another artist to show their work and sell their items.

* Tent/tables/merchandise display pieces are provided by (insert YOUR name here.) And just to clarify, that means you are responsible for your tent/tables- both set up and tear down. Although we will have plenty of staff to help with tent set up and miscellaneous tasks if needed.
* Vendors must promote the sale on their Facebook and website on 3 specific dates.
* Set up for sale to be the day before! The expectation is that vendors will be ready to rock & roll at 9am for a quick vendor team meeting.
* Lots of flexibility regarding size of space available for you – vendor fee is the same if you need 10X10 OR 20X20!!!! Do you have a lettered truck or car? We will add that to your space to help in advertising!
* And- this is no smoking at the venue. So, I apologize if that is difficult for you. And I do understand vices- I would very much like to lose weight- so again- if this is not something you can sign up for – I apologize.

What will The Purple Painted Lady do in return?
* Promote you on both her Facebook page and her website
* Get people to the event! We had OVER 1500 guests in 2012! We will provide PR such as The Rochester Woman Magazine, the Rochester Woman Magazine Facebook Page and other social media opportunities.
* Provide AWESOME entertainment for the event and food vendor(s)
* Provide security night prior
