VENDOR APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.
**We regret that due to circumstances beyond our control the Rustapalooza Spring in St. Marys Vintage Market, Saturday March 30, 2019 has been cancelled. Please stay tuned for info on our fall event coming soon.**
Rustapalooza Vintage Markets is an upscale, outdoor, curated vintage market held twice a year in the spring and the late fall. 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!
We 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 and home decor. Applications that do not fall into these criteria will not be considered.
Rustapalooza Vintage Market Vendor General Details: Booths are expected to be styled and decorated, with inviting displays, and highly encouraged to follow the themes of the show. Overnight security will be provided both nights. There is also an option to Load Out on Sunday this year! Also back by popular demand, will be food truck row, live music, junk hunks and the usual few surprises! Food vendor applications are aceepted also, just choose “food” in the pop down on the application menu, and see more info below.
Incomplete applications will not be considered. Your social media links are required. As always, previous 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 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” Spring 2018 Show. (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. his includes but is not limited to: vintage “style” and reproduction items, purchased market items, made in China, Mexico, etc). We will strictly enforce this policy at the 2019 Shows** 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) 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 repro 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, Saturday 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 due to the hurricane reconstruction. You will need to 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!
