Vendor Market 2024

Thank you for your interest in being a vendor at Let There Be Mom’s Spring Market – Stop, Shop & Stroll.  This fundraiser is the work of our Student Ambassadors, 21 driven, compassionate, & dedicated local high school juniors & seniors.  Together, we will be able to preserve the legacies of Upstate moms & dads who are battling life threatening illnesses.

To become a vendor, we ask that you make a $50 donation to Let There Be Mom & donate one item to be used in our raffle.  We are hoping to have 70+ vendors at this event.  We will review applications, giving priority on a first come, first serve basis, while also limiting the number of like vendors (no one wants to attend a market where half the vendors all sell dog treats, or candles, or soaps, or you name it).  Variety is the key. (If you are not selected to be a vendor, you will be issued a full refund.)

Historically, our events have been very well attended; we can’t wait to see how God blesses the efforts of our Student Ambassadors.  The location of the market, being on Main Street in Simpsonville, should garner a lot of attention in and of itself.  That said, we have already secured a lot of media for the event including radio, television, newspaper, & social media promos.  We are also planning to do some road signs & posters.

As a vendor we know it is important to you to have an easy load in, load out.  We are very hopeful that parking will be right behind your booth, but regardless we will have lots of volunteers on hand to help the process go smoothly.

You will notice your Retail License number is not a required element of this form. Please do your own research and choose what applies to you.(* see below)

Please reach out if you have any questions.

 

*License Requirements:

SC Department of Revenue requires that anyone selling at more than 4 vendor markets and/or sells in other ways (online, in stores, etc) per year has a license.  You can find more information about the type of license options here: https://dor.sc.gov/event-guide (look under Licenses)

City of Simpsonville requires a special event vendor license ($25); we tried to work with the city on this, but to no avail.  Only exceptions are 501 (c)3 organizations and informational booths (ie those not selling a product at the event).  This can be obtained on their website or at City Hall. (do not apply for this until you have been notified that you are a vendor in this market)

We are currently still seeking vendors who sell no baked good food products (spices, honey, oils, crackers, popcorn, fruits/veggies, meats/cheeses, etc), men’s products (clothing/accessories, health/beauty), botanical (plants, flowers).  We are full in the categories of: jewelry, home decor, candles, goat’s milk products, baked goods, quilters, woman’s clothing, pottery, stationary, and art).  If you have a product that falls outside of these categories and would like to apply you are welcome to do so.
