  • free – Blue Spaces are in the classroom. Tables are provided, 2.5×5′. Just bring your chair(s) and merchandise and sell! Tablecloths recommended.
  • $20 – Orange Spaces are in the museum. Includes a link to your website online. Tables in the museum are provided, 2.5×5′.
  • $25 – Green Spaces are slightly less desirable spaces, but still great! # 22, 23 and 24 are over a sidewalk, so there are two levels in your space – which is cool, right?! #42 is in the museum (c0mes with a 2.5×5′ table) with space for you to add a second table that you bring).  #39 is outside in a great spot near the patio and classrooms. Green spaces also include a link to your website online. Just bring your canopy (#39, 22, 23, 24), table(s), chair(s) and merchandise! 
  • $35 – Gold Spaces are highly desirable spaces in the parking lot and patio.  Includes a 10×10 space and a link to your website online. Just bring your canopy, table(s), chair(s) and merchandise and sell! 

FAQs

WHAT MUST I BRING? WHAT’S PROVIDED? You must bring your own canopy, tables (unless you’re inside), and chairs. There is a limited amount of canopies and chairs that are available for rent (Canopies are $35 to rent, 2 chairs for $5, and a canopy/2 chairs for $40). Tables are NOT available for rent. You may note your request when filling out the application.

WE’RE A NON-PROFIT, DO WE NEED TO PAY FOR OUR SPACE, RENTALS, AND PERCENTAGE OF SALES? (New in 2023) We’re also a non-profit, and this event is a fundraiser for us too! Nonprofits that do not want to pay for a vendor space are welcome to choose a free space in the classroom. You will still be required to donate 10% of your sales for the day to the ENC. If your non-profit would like a premium spot in the parking lot or patio, you will be required to pay the full space fee.

WHAT CAN I SELL? All Artwork must be eco-friendly and handmade locally or vintage. Fine arts (framed art pieces, matted art pieces), books (by the Author), craft items (not from shells or animals), food and beverages, purveyors of vintage finds that you have lovingly curated.

WHAT IS NOT ALLOWED? Non-native plants are NOT allowed, except for food plants or cut (commercially available) flowers. If you’re selling live plants they must be native to Orange County. You can check HERE. Also not allowed are disposable, single use plastic packaging or bags, balloons, styrofoam, seashells, pearls or any dead animal parts. Why? Click HERE.

IS THERE ELECTRICITY? There are a limited number of spaces near electrical outlets. You may note your request when filling out the application. There is an additional $10 fee for these spaces.
