Location: Land Gallery

Portland, OR 97227

Who can sell their work?
GOOD Market is open to all PSUGD students! You can sell anything—do you have illustration work from class? Lettering that you could turn into cards? Make prints of it! Make cards! Make all the things! You don’t have to do extra work to sell at GOOD Market. All you need to do is apply and pay the $5 fee.

What do I make?
Anything! Cards, wrapping paper, pins, gifts, socks, soap, leather goods, whatever you like to make. Keep in mind that you can’t always turn a school project into a marketable good without a bunch of editing, but we love to see projects and illustrations turned into art prints or cards.

** Please note, due to limited space each seller will be limited to 5 pieces each (multiples/prints of each piece are highly encouraged within reason). If you’re concerned about the size of your piece(s), please verify with us.For legal reasons we request that you do not make fanart of any existing piece of media or make anything that may get us sued. Let’s make original work!

How do I apply and what is the deadline?
To apply fill out this Google form.

The deadline for the Fall 2019 GOOD Market application is December 2nd.

How do I price my work? How do I package it?
Things vary. For most things people usually stay under $25, cards are around $6, but handmade goods are up to interpretation! A good place to start is to look at sites like Etsy or to think about what similar hand made goods would cost out in the world.

In the past students have had success with cellophane bags. You can find them in art stores, craft stores (like Columbia Art Supply who is known to have sales! or Blick, Michaels, etc.), or on Amazon! Sharing with a friend is a great option since they’re often sold in bulk. You’re welcome to not use cellophane bags, but packaging is required. Keep in mind that we have to have somewhere secure to put the vendor tag, please don’t make us tape or staple something directly to your work.

Can I volunteer to help with GOOD Market?
YES! Please and THANK YOU! If you are selling in GOOD Market we encourage you to volunteer. If you aren’t selling and just want to hang out we would love to have you too! We need a few volunteers to assist us with set up, manning the money and selling, and tearing down. Please email us at psugoodmarket@gmail.com for more information.

To volunteer go to our SignUpGenius page.

When/where/how do I drop off my stuff?
Bring your goods, completed Vendor Form, and $5 in an envelope with your name and email written on the back to any of the drop-off dates listed below. Please have everything pre-packaged and ready to go, with vendor tags attached to all items and Vendor Form filled out.

Drop Off Schedule: WILL BE POSTED SOON!

How many items should I sell?
We accept 5 unique pieces of inventory—how many of each of those you bring is up to you, however we ask that you don’t include more than 10 of each unique piece of inventory. There is very little space for us to store extra stuff so please take this into consideration.

Helpful Links
Please download and complete the Inventory Form and the Vendor Tags for your work. Students are required to submit an Inventory Form when you drop off your goods with your $5 and ALL items must be tagged with a vendor tag. Items without tags will not be accepted.
