HOME GROWN VENDOR POLICIES
Home Grown - A Hand Craft Market
Presented by The Local Chemist LTD
Vendor Policies 2019
The full balance of your invoice is due at the time of booking.
If your payment has not been received after one week from the invoice date, your spot will no longer be guaranteed.
Payment must clear before market day. Please note that we cannot accept Paypal e-cheque if your booking is made within one week of the market.
Payments are non-transferable to another market date, as each event has individual associated costs that the Home Grown Market pays in advance - staff, rental equipment, marketing materials, promotion & distribution etc.
- Refunds and Cancellations
Notice of cancellation must be provided and confirmed by The Home Grown team or The Local Chemist and a minimumof 30 days prior to the event date in order to receive a refund of 75%. No refund is provided if cancellation occurs within 29 days of the event. If there is 'an act of God' that would prevent any vendor from attending on the day of the event, refunds 'may be considered'.
If you book your dates at a discounted rate you will not be eligible for a refund in the event of cancellation. We will always do our best to accommodate a date switch, but cannot make any guarantees.
Space sublets or transfers between vendors are subject to approval by The Home Grown Market team or The Local Chemist.
**Late Arrival Policy**
Vendors MUST be present at least 1 hour before the doors open. If you are not present by this time your booth will be re-allocated and your vendor fee forfeited.
