Mission Statement:

KalamazooKitty is hosting the KalamazooKitty Mini Market to bring recognition and attention to the great town of Kalamazoo, Michigan!  We hope all local shops will participate in this event, as a community, after one goal: a great shopping experience for all!  Please bring your great attitude and awesome wares to ensure we all have a wonderful event!

Vendor Contract Agreement Terms:

Please arrive at 8:00 am if your last name starts with K-O, 8:15 for P-Z, 8:30 for A-J to check in and set up your booth on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018. Please try to arrive during your time slot!  If you are early or late, it will back up the line!  Arriving early does not get you a “better” spot.  You need to be completely ready to go by 9:00 am, so arrive with a plan, your items priced and the ability to set up your tent quickly. Booth Placement is determined upon arrival. Park your vehicle where you are directed and get set up!  In most cases, your vehicle will remain behind your booth all day.

Respect the boundaries designated for your space.  This includes, tent, poles, rope, overhanging umbrellas, and merchandise.  If you are unsure of your boundaries, please ask a staff member for assistance.

Remain in your booth at all times, or designate someone to work your booth while you are gone.

Vendors are responsible for collecting and filing sales tax.  Michigan sales tax is 6%.

Wear your smile:).  Customers will love a kind, smiling face and be more apt to buy from you.  Being polite to customers, other vendors and staff is a requirement, not a suggestion!

NO PETS!!

Helpful Vendor Tips:

*Test out your credit card device.  Be sure your credit card device is current with chip technology, if applicable. 

*Have cash!  No ATM

*Bring food & snacks (food trucks available)

*Wear layers!

*Bring everything needed for tent: bungies, weights, etc.

*Bring any tables, walls, etc that you need.  Nothing is provided.

*Price items BEFORE arriving.  Pricing items at whole dollars amounts will make your life much easier, rather than dealing with coins.

*SMILE 🙂

Tear Down:

Tearing down before 6 pm is unacceptable.  If your booth is empty before 6, stack your materials neatly in your booth and walk around and enjoy the show!  Before leaving your booth space, please look around and leave NOTHING behind.  Any items that were sold, but not picked up, are the responsibility of the vendor to bring into the store. 

Feel free to lend a hand to your neighbor when packing or loading up :).

Booth Fees:

10 x 10 space: $50 (non-refundable)
