Holiday ART BAZAAR faq
When is the Holiday Art Bazaar?
November 26th through December 21, 2018, Monday through Friday, 12p-7p, with extended hours during our Holiday Art Party (Date TBA).
Where is the Holiday Art Bazaar?
During the first few weeks, we will be set up in the concourse area of Gateway 2 in Newark,NJ. The final week (December 17th-21st) we will also have select vendors inside the PES Gallery.
What type of vendors are participating?
We hand select local artists and creative businesses to sell handmade, original merchandise in a curated shopping experience. We are looking for unique, special gifts and holiday fare. If you are a local artist and/or craftsperson that makes specialty items please fill out the form on our website. Past participants have included handmade organic body care products, silkscreened T-shirts and totebags, hand stitched teddybears, handmade knit and crochet items, custom wreaths, ceramic vases, terrariums, handmade custom jewelry, ornaments, local bakery items, and more!
I'm a vendor who is interested in participating in the Holiday Art Bazaar. How do I get involved?
Please fill out the OPEN CALL: VENDORS & CONSIGNMENT ARTISTS form and let us know about what your work! You will be asked to include the price range of your items, professional images of your items, and whether you would like to become a vendor or consign the work for sale.
What is the difference between a vendor and a consignment artist?
Independent vendors must commit to be present during the Holiday Art Bazaar to tender all sales of their goods. We highly encourage vendors to have both credit card and cash options for payment. There is both a daily and weekly fee to rent a table. The benefit of becoming a vendor is that you keep 100% of your profit, PES will not take a percentage of sales.
Artists and craftspeople interested in consigning designed and handmade work agree to a 50% commission to PES. In exchange, we handle all sales and transactions, so there is no requirement for you to be on site. Consigned artists will also be featured on our website and social media platforms. This is a curated, juried market. It is free to apply and if selected, free to participate.
What's included in the Vendor Registration Fee?
If you are selected to become a vendor for the 2018 Holiday Art Bazaar, you will be asked for a non-refundable fee for the length of your participation. Daily Rates are $50, Weekly Rates are $200. Vendors are required to be on-site to process their own sales, but are entitled to 100% of the profits they make. The following amenities are offered:
1-3 Chairs (Upon Request)
Access to our High Speed Fiber Optic WiFi
Access to Power Outlet (Upon Request)
Storage for Merchandise
Promotion through our Social Media outlets
Can I bring additional displays?
All display structures must be pre-approved and fit within the designated space allotted.
I'm interested in becoming a vendor, but can only commit to select days.
That's ok! We have daily rates, as well as weekly.
When will I be notified of acceptance?
We will be accepting applications through November 19th and notifying individuals on an ongoing basis.
