HOW DO I BECOME A GOOD MAKER?
Applications are now OPEN for our 2020 spring market. Once applications close we begin our jury process. Vendors will be notified within 2 weeks of applications closing whether they’ve been accepted or not.
This is a juried market. Meaning vendors are hand picked based on photos and description. Awesome pics are SUPER important:) We love us some GOOD eye candy;) If you are new business, don't be discouraged. We LOVE introducing fresh talent to the scene.
Our focus is primarily on vintage/re-purposed, and handmade artisan goods. We know some of you have shops or mobile boutiques selling "new/market" items. Our goal is to find those that bring this option to our shoppers in a unique and beautiful way that flows with the vibe of our show. So...bring your "A" game...awesome displays, killer products, and a big pair of a happy pants!!! No direct sales.
Cedar County Fair Grounds - Yes, I know what you're thinking, fairgrounds?!?!? Trust me. It's super cute promise! Picture this, a beautiful white barn with gorgeous wood floors with ceilings that reach the sky, green grass, lots of huge trees for shade and tons and tons of parking for tons and tons of shoppers!!! YAY!!! Our indoor spaces are very limited but the outdoor spaces are awesome too!
In case you're wondering where the heck this is, it's not far off Interstate 80 in between the Quad Cities and Iowa City. So easy peasy to get to!
SET UP DETAILS
Our market begins at 3:00 on Friday. While you can for sure set up on Friday, we also allow you to set up on Thursday which we strongly encourage. So much more relaxing for you and it cuts down on the chaos on Friday. We provide overnight security both Thursday and Friday night. There is also a parking lot near by for you to leave your trailers as well. Tearing down early is not allowed.
You are responsible for the collection of your own sale tax. You are required to apply for a Iowa Sales Tax Permit since the State of Iowa is no longer offering Temporary Sales Permits.
All payments made to Good Makers Market are non-refundable for any reason.
WHY WASN’T I ACCEPTED?
We jury each market individually based on the apps we receive. We receive many, many more applications than we can accept. We are going for a certain feel and look. Please don’t be offended if you are not accepted. This is the hardest part for us. Some categories are more competitive than others. We strive to curate each market to have a wide variety of goods and not overlap in too many of the same categories.
