Vendor Applications are now CLOSED for Rustapalooza’s Vintage Southern Coastal Christmas Market on Saturday November 10, 2018! Due to the overwhelming number of applications we are completely full and on a wait list for both vintage and food vendors. Thanks for you interest and check back with us later this year for information on next year’s shows!
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.
The 2018 Rustapalooza: It’s A Vintage White Christmas Market in St. Marys will return to the stunning riverfront Gateway Property in Historic Downtown St. Marys, GA on Saturday , November 10th from 8-4. Booths are expected to be styled and decorated, with inviting displays, and highly encouraged to follow the vintage white holiday theme of the show. Vendor set up will be Thursday November 8th from 10 – 5 and Friday November 9th from 9:00 a.m. til 5:00 p.m. Overnight security will be provided both nights. Back by popular demand, will be food truck row, live music, junk hunks and the usual few surprises! The Saturday show will include the ever popular Early Pickin’ from 8-10 a.m. and General Admission from 10-4 p.m. We will end one hour earlier in the fall this year to allow for daylight savings time. Food vendor applications are also open, just choose “food” in the pop down on the application menu, and see more info below.
Incomplete applications will not be considered. As always, previous Rustapalooza St. Marys Vendors get first priority. Submission of application, however, does not guarantee approval. July 1, 2018 is the deadline to apply for the November show. Once approved, vendors will receive an email and vendor contract to return with your booth fee which is due no later than August 1, 2018. 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 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” at our Spring 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 and/or eliminate these items. We will strictly enforce this policy at the Fall Show**
Vintage & Antique booths MUST be limited to no more than 10% market items, (this was previously a generous 20% . This includes but is not limited to: vintage “style” and reproduction items, purchased market items, made in China, Mexico, etc). 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 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.
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. Electric on the street is very limited and you will need to contact me directly if you require electric for the day to work out details with the City.
Thank you for your interest in Rustapalooza’s A Vintage White Christmas Market and we look forward to seeing you all in November!
