Small stall spaces measure 4m2 (aprox 2 x 2 m)
Large stall spaces are double the small stall size and measure 8m2 or 9m2 (approx 4m x 2m or 3m x 3m). Depending on the venue layout.
Please be flexible to fit your stall into the spaces given. Because you will be placed on the day, the space shapes may vary and are not always rectangular.
Please measure out your space at home, so you have an idea of what you will fit in your stall space.
Please keep your stalls tidy and well presented. The Vintage Roundup is about creating a retail shop like experience for the customers. so we don’t want to see ‘for free’ piles on the floor. Please hang your garments, fold them up on tables or have tidy boxes or suitcases for customers to rummage for cheaper items.
Please test out how many garments your rack can safely hold before you come to the market. Temperamental and weak racks that collapse under the weight of too many garments is not a good look and will cause an untidy market and stress for you and your customers.
We encourage you to be creative with your stall space and play around with setting up your ‘mini shop’. Think of fun ideas like bringing mannequins to display clothing, ladders or book shelves to display shoes / homewares and cute floor rugs to give your space character.
Please note: Burns Hall asks that we do not stick or hang anything on the walls. So please bring coat racks, mannequins, or ladders to display clothing if desired.
CLOTHING RACK HIRE
Industrial clothing racks are available for hire which we be set up and ready before your arrival. There are 5 different racks and are available on first in first served basis. Please email me before filling out the booking form if you are interested in hiring a rack and we’ll send you the options with measurements and garment capacity included.
TABLES & CHAIRS
Please provide you own tables and chairs.
Please bring your own lamps if you would like to brighten up your stall or add some vintage ambience to the market. You will also need to bring your own extension cord and 5 plug / double plugs. You are also responsible for taping down your cords so customers do not trip over them. Gaffer tape is best used for this and you can find it at your local supermarket or hardware store.
This is a CASH MARKET and all stallholders are required to bring their own float to give change to customers. Best to have your float sorted the day before. If you have your own Eftpos, please remember to bring an extension cord if you are not placed near a powerpoint.
You will need to bring your own bags if you want to bag your customers goods. Some markets have a no bag policy to encourage people to bring their own recyclable bags. It’s totally up to you.
