Vendor Application

At this uncertain time, we are closely monitoring the Covid 19 situation.  We know we all miss our big outdoor events, and we are waiting for confirmation and approval for us to be able to host our next Rustapalooza.  At this time VENDOR APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED.  Please check back periodically or follow us on facebook for our next event announcement.  Thank you all!

Please READ everything before you apply!

Rustapalooza Vintage Market is an upscale, outdoor, curated vintage market held in historic St. Marys, GA.  We’ve been voted by the reader’s of Flea Market Style Magazine as one of the best Outdoor Vintage Markets in the state of Georgia!  Our next show is currently “to be determined”.

We will only accept vendors that sell true vintage, antiques, shabby chic, handmade, architectural salvage, re-purposed or up-cycled items made from vintage materials, industrial, garden, vintage holiday and home decor. Applications that do not fall into these criteria will not be considered.  The deadline to apply is….  The deadline for booth payments once you have been accepted is…and payment details will be in your acceptance email.

Rustapalooza Vintage Market Vendor General Details:  Booths are 10′ deep and 12′ wide and a maximum of three consecutive booth spaces are allowed.  Booths are expected to be styled and decorated, with inviting displays, and highly encouraged to follow the Vintage Retro Holiday theme of the show.   We will also have Food truck row, live music, junk hunks and the usual few surprises!

Incomplete applications will not be considered.  Your working social media links are required.  As always, previously approved Rustapalooza Vendors get first priority. Submission of application, however, does not guarantee approval.  Once approved, vendors will receive an email and vendor contract to return with your booth fee.   Vendor booth fees are non-refundable as they cover the upfront expenses of the show.  New vendors MUST submit three styled photos of booths/products for consideration.

**ALL NEW and RETURNING VINTAGE VENDOR APPLICANTS Please note, we have updated our market items policy to reflect the feed back of our customers. We had several comments of “too much market stuff”  (i.e. made in China, Hobby Lobby type or equivalent)  By submitting an application you agree to adhere to the following requirements for your booth and limit your booth to 10% Market and/or eliminate these items. This includes but is not limited to:  vintage “style” and reproduction items, purchased from market items, made in China, Mexico, etc). We will strictly enforce this policy at the 2019 Shows.  Excessive market items will be requested to be removed from your booth at the discretion of the curator**   We strive very hard to maintain our market to sell pure vintage and antiques, handmade and vintage-repurposed items and we do realize you may need some market type items to decorate and fill in.  We are not Hobby Lobby nor do we want to be.  Booths that have an excess of 10% market purchased/vintage reproduction items, please contact Maria directly for consideration.  NOTE:  We, rustapalooza, as a show, do allow one booth out of our 100 vendors to have reproduction items per show and they are pre-approved to do so keeping us well within the 10% max of reproduction items.

Food Vendors,  please select “food” option in pop down on the application to apply.  Photos are not required for food trucks,  but highly suggested to promote your truck closer to the show.  For food planning purposes,  expected attendance is approximately 5000 attendees, volunteers and vendors.  Food vendors must furnish a copy of their liability insurance with Rustapalooza as a named insured once approved.  NOTE: Electric on the street (at this time) IS NOT AVAILABLE. Please plan to have a generator for ALL your electrical needs.

Thank you for your interest in Rustapalooza Vintage Markets and we look forward to seeing you soon!
