Applications can be confusing sometimes so we wanted to be absolutely clear about what we are expecting on our application.
DATES TO PARTICIPATE
All applicants must be able to participate for all 3 Market days.
ALL booth payments will be due by June 1st **no exceptions** If you are unable to pay for your booth before the deadline then please do not apply. Any failure to pay before this deadline will have you removed from the Market and placed on the waitlist.
The last day to remove yourself from the Market is July 1st, if you would like a refund (less a $50 administration fee). After this date, no refunds will be given.
Please have plans in place for emergencies. We know that things come up and plans can quickly change so please plan for those ahead of time whether it’s extra people to help run your booth or friends to watch the little ones. Please be prepared for all scenarios.
We have multiple options in booth sizes to choose from. Please make sure that your whole display can fit into your chosen booth size.
Please note that we do not supply tables and chairs. Your booth display is 100% up to you but we encourage you to make your space attractive and welcoming to shoppers.
Your booth does come with WIFI. However, please make sure that your systems work before you come to the Market and have a backup plan in case your POS doesn’t work.
Fawn & Cub is a juried artisan market which means that there are several criteria we look for when choosing who will be selected to participate. Here are some of the some of the categories we look for on our panel:
– For the Winkler Harvest Festival we are showcasing handmade Makers as well as other Small Businesses. (For REGULAR Fawn & Cub Markets products must be handmade or designed by yourself. We do not accept MLM’s, Antiques or reselling items.)
– Uniqueness of your product (certain categories are oversaturated ex. soaps, candles, clay earrings, children’s accessories and wooden signs) We look for brands that stand out from the crowd.
– Consistency on social media (do you have a consistent presence advertising your brand/product) We look for brands who are wanting to grow rather then a seasonal product that you only advertise once a year.
– Booth design (can be a previous Market photo or a drawing) We want to give our shoppers a fun and unique shopping experience.
Every market we receive more applications than we can accept. We do our best to accept new makers while keeping a small amount of makers within each category. If you have been showcased in the past, this does not guarantee you a spot in our future markets however we do take your past presence in our markets into account.
BEFORE YOU APPLY
Please do not apply if you do not have a plan in place in case you are unable to make it to the market as no refunds will be given after July 1st. It’s unfair to the makers who are on the waitlist and want to be apart of the market but aren’t able to participate just to have you cancel before the market. Please be respectful and have a back-up plan.
We want our Market to be an enjoyable experience for all. We will continue to work with Manitoba Heath; the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba (LGCA) and the City of Winkler to provide a fun shopping experience. Our Market will operate with full approval.
If you agree with all of the conditions above, please apply to our Harvest Festival Market!
