JUNK JUBILEE VENDOR APPLICATION & PRICING
 
People often ask us how they can become dealers at our Junk Jubilee events. If you are interested in pursuing that, here is some information that will explain the process and costs, as well as an application form.
 
 
Vendor Booth Sizes, Costs and Information
 
We thought you might want to know this right up front.  We have two sizes of booths, and they are available on a first come, first served basis.  Our existing vendors have the right to keep their usual space, and upgrading to a different booth is based on availability and seniority.  Costs are as follows:
 
12' X 12'.....$290
14' X 14'.....$390
 
Vendors may purchase more than one booth to create a larger space, but availability is limited.  There are also some endcap booths in our floor plan, but those are also limited, and quite popular.
All booths come with access to electricity.
 
 
How we Select Dealers For Junk Jubilee
 
Our first objective in selecting dealers is making sure that they have merchandise that will sell well.  After several years, we have a pretty good idea of what our customers are most likely to buy.  Words we use to describe such items include: Vintage, Antique, Architectural & Agricultural Salvage, Retro, Industrial, Unique, and Repurposed. We know that focusing on these types of items will help make our dealers more successful.
 
Many of our customers are traditional collectors, but even more are looking for unique decorative pieces for their homes.
 
In order to maintain a high level of merchandise, there are some things that do not work at this show.  Junk Jubilee is not a craft show or a flea market.  There are other excellent shows in the area that provide those opportunities.  We want old (40 yrs. plus) items, or things that are made from old items. Also, please note that space for jewelry and painted furniture is very limited.
 
 
Vendor Application Process
 
Junk Jubilee is successful because of the quality and variety of items that our vendors bring, as well as the beautiful way in which they are displayed.  We want to keep it that way, so we are quite picky when adding dealers to our "family."  
 
Our application will ask several questions about your business and what you intend to sell at Junk Jubilee.  Please read it carefully and provide all of the information and photos requested.  Make sure the photos are sharp and give us an idea of your display skills.
 
Once we receive your application, we will carefully review it, and we may contact you with additional questions. Then we will decide if we think you would be a good fit for Junk Jubilee, and you will hear from us either way within 30 days. 
 
Please do not take it personally if we do not ask you to be part of the show.  Sometimes we have to turn down great dealers simply have because we already have several booths featuring similar merchandise.  We want to have a good mix of items to attract customers and also to balance competition so that our dealers have a good chance to be successful. 
 
If we think you will be a good fit for the show, we will send you a contract and more information.  Please return the paperwork and payment by the specified due date, and we will see you at Junk Jubilee.
