Sashes Market 2013!

Hey gals!
We are really excited to share a little more info about The Sashes Market, our boutiqued shop featuring women from our community that we are so excited to put on at the 2013 Influence Conference!

The Sashes Market was a HUGE hit at the 2012 conference and we were only getting started! Here's a few things you should know about our market!

- It's boutiqued. No vendors having to stand at a table all weekend. It's a one stop shop for everything. Our vendors bring us their product, priced and ready to go, we merchandise it and display it beautifully, our market ladies run the shop all weekend. This makes for a much more beautiful display (think Anthroplogie over tables and tables of product laid out) and it helps our vendors to really enjoy the conference. 

- It's not just a one time gig. Being a vendor at a conference that has a network attached to it means that you're a key player in a handmade community that keeps going. It's not just two days worth of selling, it's being a part of something that is much larger than yourself before and after the conference. 

- Our hearts are for you. We spend time praying for our market vendors and we're very intentional in who we let sell and what we have them sell. We'll work with you to make sure you're bringing the right product and the right amount. We want you to do well! 

To help our market experience this year, we've enlisted the help of three Sashes Ambassadors. These are three women who are a part of the network and who are incredible role models in the handmade community. They all three had a great experience at the Sashes Market last year and they're going to be partnering with us to help make things go amazingly! Questions you need answered? Want to build community with other shop owners prior to the conference? These are your ladies!

Interested in selling at the Sashes Market? 
Here's what you need to know!

- You do need to purchase a conference ticket and a vendor pass to sell in the market. The fee to participate in the market is a $200 flat fee, we take no after percentage. Vendor fees will be due by July 1st, 2012 and will be paid via paypal. 
- You do need to apply to be a vendor and you can do that by following this link and filling out the form. We are selective in who we choose because we genuinely want our vendors to do well. If we don't think your products are a match for our attendees, we want to be upfront about that.
- We will accept credit cards in the market. This way we can keep the shop boutiqued and pay our vendors easily after the conference. Vendors will be paid via check, less credit card fees, approximately one week post conference. 

This year's market is going to be so amazing and we are really looking forward to having YOU be a part of it! Our vendors spots will go quickly - so head over here and fill out our form to apply as soon as possible. If you have other questions, feel free to reach out to our market ambassadors via twitter or leave a comment here! 

We love partnering with creative women and we look forward to seeing your beautiful goods in September!
