this is our most popular event. because of this, vendor space always sells out quickly so if you want in, please read all of this email very carefully and follow our instructions.

even if you are a regular vendor with us you
must apply using our online vendor application

this event is outdoorswe provide nothing but an empty space on the brick / pavement, so you must provide your own tent, tables + chairs if you need them! spaces are up to 10' x 10' to accommodate standard eventing tents. 

there are some obstacles, such as trees, benches, sculptures, etc. and these things make the space a little hard to carve out. there's also some new road work happening in the street next to the square, but it'll still be a really great place for our event. 

you can share a space, but it's up to you to find someone to share with. if you're approved and you'd like to share your space, please let us know who you're sharing it with so we can publicize everyone's participation. 
the vendor fee for this is $100 and is due in advance of the event but vendor space is only reserved with advance payment (first-come-first-paid) but you must first apply right away if you want in. 

if your application has been approved, you'll receive an email confirmation with payment details. the vendor fee is to be paid through PayPal or Venmo) sent using friend / family option with no fees for recipient. 

~ Our Basic Terms ~ 

if approved and you pay on time, you're in!

but you must agree to all terms in this email in addition to those in our application and emails to vendors regarding payment and details. 

vendor fees are not refundable for any reason. 

you must be available for both the event date of Sunday 8th September as well as our September 15th Raindate. while our hope is to have great weather, you never know with outdoor events, so that's why we've set a raindate. if you can't commit to our raindate but don't mind potentially forfeiting your vendor fee, you're welcome to apply, but don't expect your fee back if we need to enact our raindate. 
other rules: nothing illegal / incredibly offensive may be sold. you must also pick up after yourselves. if you leave trash or anything else in the space, you will not be allowed to do our events in the future.

our Rock + Roll Yard Sales happen
a handful of times every year in Providence
and the Boston area to give independent
DIY vendors a venue to sell their wares, as
an alternative to the square and ugly
big box world we live in.
