There will be no refunds. There are no refunds on the $5 application processing fee. You may not sell your space to another vendor if you have to cancel. We must jury and approve all vendors before they can participate in the show. We may have a waiting list that we can fill a vendor in. Future credit for shows will be determined on a case by case basis.
Why do you require a Seller’s Permit?
When you sell merchandise in California, even on a temporary basis, you are required to have a Seller’s Permit from the Board of Equalization (BOE). It's the law in California. There is no charge for a Seller’s Permit. If you do not have one already, you can apply for a temporary permit. Temporary permits are issued in order to participate in events like ours. Here’s a link to a PDF document from the BOE. It has a lot of information. Don’t forget to bring your permit with you on the day of the event!
Why are you charging fees? What is the money used for?
The fees for this event will be paid to the North Park Main Street Association

Please list your sharing buddy on your application. One of the two vendors has to pay for the full space. You may not add an another vendor after your application has been submitted. Sorry, we cannot help you find a vendor to share with for this show.
