GOOD Market is open to all PSUGD students! But you DO have to apply. We will have individual spaces for sellers at the Simon Benson Alumni House, but they are limited.

Spread the word! Share our facebook invite!

The deadline for the application is Monday, November 23rd. There is a $5 fee for Pop-up Kiosk participants, and $10 fee for individual seller tables, and both of these options will get you a spot in the Pop-up Kiosk at Land Gallery. In order for your application to be considered complete, we must have received your completed answers to the Google form and your application fee by December 1st.

MORE FAQs

For Kiosk Vendors:

When do I drop off my stuff for the pop-up kiosks?

Tuesday December 1st from [figuring out times] in room AB 320.

We will have vendor sheets for you to fill out with your item and pricing information. After that you can sit back, relax, and we’ll take care of the selling for you!

For Individual Vendors:

Pricing?

Pricing discretion is completely up to you, but you can get an idea for pricing your own work by looking on Etsy, visiting local boutiques etc. And of course, 100% of your profits will be yours to keep!

What should I bring?

You are welcome to bring decorative elements for your set up like a tablecloth or small flowers etc. We recommend bringing a stack of business cards as well. You can order 50 from moo.com for $20.

How should I present my items?

Cards and prints look great in cello packaging, if you sell a set of holiday cards you could sell them in a gift box. You can buy single cello bags at Columbia Art + Drafting, and Michaels is a good place for boxes and such. If you have questions about specific items– ask us!

Money?

You can use whatever method is easiest for you Cash and Square are both great options. You can purchase a square reader for $10 and they give you back the $10 when you sign up. It’s a small fee for each sale but it’s a great way to offer flexible payment that goes straight to your bank account.

How big are the individual spaces at Simon Benson?

Approx 1.5 x 3 feet. Plan flexibly, i.e. bring a holder for a stack of various cards, alternatively, you could lay them out to cover more space if you have a larger space.

Can I cancel my application at any time?

Please only apply for individual tables if you are sure you can participate on December 5th from 9am – 2pm.

Do you provide any tables and chairs?

We will have tables and chairs available.

P.S.- Don’t Forget to tag your photos #goodmarket2015
