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 payments.
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 CANCELLATION
Notice of cancellation must be provided and confirmed by The Home Grown team in order to receive A REFUND OF 50% on a CASE BY CASE BASIS. No refund is provided if there is a missmanagement of the vendor/small business schedule. Please check your schedule ahead of time as we are not responsible to manage your time and your scheduling.
If by any chance there is an ‘act of God’ that prevents you from attending the Home Grown Market, we can take things into consideration, but this does not guarantee a full refund.
If you bring a table that is larger than 6X2.5’ ( and if it is unknown that you have booked a larger space ) you are placing yourself in a position to lose any chance of a refund. Larger tables cramp other tables and we lose space! Please dont be a debbie downer in this....! This also means that we have the right to ask you to pack up and not attend. We dont want to do this, but if it affects everyone attending, this may have to be the course of action.
**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.
- Promotion Responsibility
When participating with Home Grown , vendors are expected to promote the event via social media, word of mouth, email list. Please help out by inviting your friends and family to the Facebook event @homegrownkelowna, and posting about the event on Instagram using @local_chemist and #homegrownkelowna ! Advertising the day before the event or just putting up one post on Instagram stories doesn’t help anyone…including yourself! It is not expected for vendors to have to pay for advertising via social media, but setting up posts for FREE on social media platforms of where you are going to be and at what times, is beneficial for you and your business.
Booking any event with us acknowledges that you are held responsible for advertising the dates you are attending. The HomeGrown team will be doing everything we can in advertising as well, but every vendor is taking responsibilty of being a mouthpiece for the HomeGrown market! Help make it successful.
- Tabletop and rack Policies
Tabletop is the goal, but if you have racks or shelving of sorts, let us know what you have and we can go from there! No stress!
Tabletop bookings will fit 1 standard 6’ x 2.5’ table. All shelving, racks, etc. must fit on top of the table or snuggly beside it, additional fixtures (i.e. clothing racks, tables) are permitted, however if examples are shown in example pictures, some exceptions may be permitted and some may not be.
TABLES MUST BE 6X2.5 because if they are larger, you are cramping on someone else and the Home Grown team can either ask you to not attend, which will forfeit your refund, or relocate you to a spot that you dont want to be. In the words of Captain Planet, “THE POWER IS YOURS!'
If you have a larger table than 6X2.5, let us know!
The Home Grown Team staff will be on site during load in to support with booth configuration and answer display related questions. As you can imagine, The Home Grown Market events have many moving parts. Please be aware that you may be asked to re-configure or even move your booth or if a cancellation occurs.
Vinyl banners are not the direction that we want to go at the The Home Grown Market.....but we are not fully against it.
DIY signage is encouraged. Any signage larger than 3ft. must be approved by The Home Grown team in advance. It’s not that we are hating on Vinyl banners, but if you have something hand made, that would be amazing!
Vendors are not permitted to burn candles or use defusers or anything that can be burned inside any of the buildings that The Home Growm Market is a part of.
All bags, boxes, and storage bins must be removed from view before the doors open. If you are using plastic bins as part of your display they must be covered with a tablecloth or blanket.
Sharing is not permitted for tabletop bookings. We want everyone to be given a chance to showcase what they have, lets work together shall we?
Requests for access to power, specific locations, and/or preferred vendor neighbours will always be considered, but cannot be guaranteed. You must let the Home Grown team know if you are needing power at the time of booking!
All goods must be approved by The Home Grown team and/or The Local Chemist LTD, please provide a detailed and accurate idea of what you plan to bring in your application. The Home Grown market AND The Local Chemist LTD reserves the right to determine if goods are not suitable for the market onsite as well as in advance of the market.
Vendors, products and table displays may be photographed while participating in the market. Photographs taken onsite, as well as any included in vendor applications, may be used for promotional purposes.
Vendors are responsible for securing any/all permits, licenses, insurance, etc necessary in order to sell and/or your sample your products. Vendors are responsible for any consequences that may occur as a result of use or consumption of their products. If you do not have your licensing or insurances in place, you are stating that you are the only one responsible for any loss or damage done to you and/or your products.
Vendors are required to ensure that their booth is staffed at all times during market hours. Early load-out is not permitted.
