New Vendor Registration

STEP 1:

Determine Your Merchandise Category – 1 or 2

Category 1

We are looking to book vendors who are selling merchandise under the following categories:

  • Antiques
  • Collectibles
  • Original and Collectible Artwork & Prints
  • Unique Non-Wearable Handmade/Homemade Items
  • Mid-Century Furniture and Home Decor
  • Non-Wearable Vintage Items
  • Non-Wearable One-of-a-Kind and Rare Items
  • Non-Wearable Items made with Recycled/Repurposed materials
  • Eco-Friendly Items

Vendors that fall in Category 1 are eligible to book in advance every Sunday according to booth availability.

If you fall under this category, fill out our Online Vendor Registration Form, download the Vendor Handbook, and read through it to learn how to book a space in advance.

Category 2

NOTE: Because of the relatively small size of our market (250 vendors), we need to maintain a balance of merchandise. The items listed in Category 2 are currently abundant in the market. New vendors who sell these items are only eligible to book a space in advance for the 2nd Sunday of the month or any Sunday through the morning Stand By Line:

  • Handmade or Vintage Jewelry
  • Vintage or Locally Designed & Handmade Clothing (No “Wholesale” or “Bulk” Clothing from Downtown)
  • Crystals and Minerals
  • Handmade and Vintage Shoes
  • Purses (ABSOLUTELY NO COUNTERFEITS)
  • Uniquely Decorated Device Accessories
  • Vinyl Records
  • Some Imported Goods
  • Shabby Chic Furniture

While there are a few exceptions, the booth’s display, business concept, marketing, and quality of merchandise would have to be outstanding.

If you fall under this category and are looking a space for the 2nd Sunday or through the Sunday Morning Stand By Line, fill out our Online Vendor Registration Form, download the Vendor Handbook, and read through it to learn about our booking procedures.

Merchandise Questions?

NOTE: If you’re not sure of where your merchandise falls, contact Ash@melrosetradingpost.org with a description of your business, website links and/or photos of your merchandise. The more details you provide about your business, the easier it will be for us to see if it is a good fit for the market.

If your merchandise is not on this page, it may not be eligible for our market.
