FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements to be a vendor?

  • We are looking for awesome people, making cool stuff that are wanting to learn about growing their business. You want to make new friends and be a part of a super supportive, awesome team. If you just want to sell stuff, we probably aren’t the group for you. But if you want to grow your network and find community… well… that’s what we are all about!
  • You must make or design your own stuff in the Calgary area. We are not currently accepting MLM’s catalogue items or resale items at this time. You can only sell your own products. This means gift baskets are not available for sale in this space.
  • You have to offer local pickup OR free delivery (only one is required)
  • You need to operate your own booth so you want to be reasonably familiar with Facebook otherwise it could end up being a really frustrating experience for you. And that will make us both sad
