Thank you for submitting your application to the BUST Craftacular | Spring! 2016!

This event will go down Saturday and Sunday May 6th and 7th at Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse (73 West St, Brooklyn, NY 11222).

We will notify all vendors with our decisions via email by midnight on Sunday, March 21st. For more information on dates please see our FAQs.

Please check the email address you provided on your application for your confirmation message.

If you have any specific questions regarding the application, volunteering, or preparing for this event, please contact the BUST Craftacular team at craftacular@bust.com.

A big 'thank you!' from the ladies of BUST - we can't wait to see you there!

 

If you are interested in becoming a vendor, please read the entire FAQ before starting your application--even if you have been a vendor at past BUST Craftacular events. 

What is BUST Craftacular | Spring! ?

BUST Craftacular | Spring! is a stylish shopaganza with a fashion and beauty twist. We'll be featuring over 40 vendors of unique, vintage, and handmade creations with an emphasis on fashion and beauty products from greater Los Angeles and beyond.

It's more than an indie shopping mecca - it's an interactive, all-day event featuring free and low-cost style and beauty tutorials, cocktails, snacks, music, and plenty of space to chill with friends.

BUST Craftacular | Spring! is brought to you by the same team as the BUST Craftacular, NYC’s original indie handmade market.

When and where will BUST Craftacular | Spring! take place?

BUST Craftacular | Spring! will take place on Saturday, May 7th at Superchief Gallery (739 Kohler St, Los Angeles, CA 90021). There will be a parking lot reserved exclusively for attendees of the event as well as ample street parking. The BUST Craftacular | Spring! will be open to shoppers from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM. The craft fair will be $5 for attendees.

How do I apply to be a vendor? When do I find out if I’ve been accepted?

If you choose to enter a late application, you will remain subject to the 100% and 50% refund periods. If you submit an application after the refund period, you must notify BUST in writing within 3 days of your application date.  

How will vendors be determined? What kind of vendors do you accept?

BUST accepts vendors who offer handmade or small run crafts and products. Businesses who resell handmade crafts from other artisans or who have distribution in more than one state will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Larger companies who wish to participate in the BUST Craftacular should consider getting involved through sponsorship

Vendors will be juried by BUST Craftacular staff on the basis of quality and uniqueness of their wares. Due to space limitations, we cannot accept all vendors. Vendors who are not accepted due to space limitations will continue to be invited to future events. We are accepting vendors from the following categories for this particular event:

Accessories
Bath and Body
Books/Magazines
Bridal
Cards and Stationery
Food/Drink (pre-packaged)
Food/Drink (prepared/hot)
Hair care
Handmade clothing and accessories (both men’s and women’s)
Hats and headwear
Housewares
Informational
Jewelry
Kids
Knitwear
Lingerie (handmade and vintage)
Makeup
Nail care
Original Art
Pets
Prints and Paper Goods
Screenprinting
Tools/Crafting
Toys
Vintage clothing and accessories (both men’s and women’s)
Vintage patterns and sewing supplies
Vintage vinyl and tapes

If you have any questions about whether your products are a fit for BUST Craftacular | Spring!, please email the Craftacular team (craftacular@bust.com).

 *Food trucks will not be able to attend this event.

What kinds of people attend the BUST Craftacular | Spring! event?

There are three general groups who attend the BUST Craftacuar events, including:

BUST Magazine audience: Fans and subscribers of BUST! Check out the link for detailed demographics, but here are some for starters:

  • 98% Female
  • Median Age: 32 years
  • Median Income: $65K
  • Top descriptors: Educated, Trendy, Fashionistas

General Public: The event will be open to the general public, so expect to see families and shoppers from local LA neighborhoods.

Press and Buyers: BUST has built a reputation with local buyers, stylists and fashion journalists as the go-to event for trending fashions.

How can I offer a service bar/DIY area at BUST Craftacular | Spring! ?

If you are a Los Angeles local service based business such as a Salon, Crafting Boutique, Spa, or similar we would love to get you involved. The Spring! event will offer service bars where business can feature promotions, additional products/services or giveaways. In order to set up a bar, we ask that businesses be prepared with staff and supplies to offer a minimum of one free service to attendees which are estimated to be several thousand, though each bar should be prepared to service several hundred.

Large businesses who would like to offer a bar at the event can apply as a sponsor

Vendors who would like to offer a free service such as product demos at their space are highly encouraged to do so! Please plan a display that will allow you to host attendees in addition to your products within a 10'x10' space.

What type of spaces/tables will be provided and what are the fees?

There are three space options available at BUST Craftacular | Spring! :

1-day standard space (10'x10', 8' table) - $285
1-day double space (20’x10', two 8' tables) - $570
1-day shared space (5’x10', shared 8' table) - $185

In addition, all applicants are required to pay a non-refundable application fee of $20.

You will be prompted to pay your space fee via credit card or PayPal at the time of application. Your application will not be considered unless you have paid the space fee in its entirety when you apply.

BUST will provide standard 8 foot tables (96" by 30", 30" high) and two folding chairs per table. We LOVE for our vendors to bring creative displays for their space, but ask that vendors keep in mind the following when planning their space:

  • Clearance in the aisles and vendor areas is important! If you'd like to use additional displays in front of your space, plan to use only 1' in addition. If you plan to use displays behind your space, we recommend that you give yourself about 3' of working space in addition to a display. Your displays must fit within your 10'x10' area. If you have a custom built display, then please email a photo to craftacular@bust.com.
  • If you apply for a standard or double space, you do not have to use the BUST standard issue tables, however they will remain available to you.
  • We highly discourage planning any displays for the side of your table, these areas are used for other vendors to move freely in and out of the vendor aisle.
  • If you would like to apply for a shared space, do not plan on using a custom display/table in exchange for a standard table. 
  • Lighting can be a problem for your neighbors. Please plan a display that will not obscure the light from other vendors.

Can I share a space?

You can certainly share a space with another vendor! Please note that each vendor must apply separately and will be juried as individuals.

To apply for a shared table, please select the "shared space" option on the application. You will then be prompted to indicate whether you need BUST Craftacular staff to match you up with another vendor. If you know who you’d like to share with, you will then be prompted to enter their name. It is recommended that vendors who would like to share and know the vendor they would like to share with apply as early as possible.

How do I pay my space fee? Is there an application fee or any other fees?

You will be prompted to pay your space fee by credit card or PayPal at the end of the application. You must pay this space fee in its entirety in order for your application to be considered.

A one-time, non-refundable $20 application fee is included in your space fee; it does not need to be paid separately. Refunds will be issued for the space fee less the application fee. 

If you cannot attend the Spring! event after submitting an application, notify BUST within 30 days of your application date. Additional service fees may be applied for withdrawn applications after 30 days.

International payments may be subject to an exchange fee by credit card or banking organizations. BUST does not control these additional charges and will not issue refunds for banking fees. Please take note of your bank or credit card's policies before applying.

When will I be notified of my acceptance status?

Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status by email on March 27th, 2016 (midnight).

What if I'm not accepted?

If you aren’t accepted to BUST Craftacular | Spring! , you will be refunded your space fee on Wednesday, March 30th.

Some vendors will not be accepted initially due to space limitations; they will be placed on our waiting list. If you elect not to stay on the waiting list or we are unable to take you off the waiting list before the event, your space fee will be refunded in full. You are welcome to stay on the waiting list as long as you like.

All refunds will be processed less the non-refundable $20 application fee.

Also, please note that once you accept a vendor spot at BUST Craftacular | Spring!, all of our standard refund policies and deadlines apply (see below).

What if I have to drop out of the BUST Craftacular | Spring! ?

We understand that life is unpredictable, and as such, we have a refund policy in place. Once accepted to the BUST Craftacular | Spring! , you have until March 28th, 2016 to cancel and receive a full refund of your space fee. If you need to cancel after that, you are eligible to receive a 50% refund until April 11th, 2016 After that date, no refunds will be given.

All refunds will be processed less the non-refundable $20 application fee.

Additional Refund policy:

Only you can truly understand your products and your target market. After you have applied, BUST will provide you with a venue safe from the elements, a space and table to sell your wares, and promote the event to the public. Vendors are responsible for attending the event on time, providing reasonable protection to their products, and reasonable protection to their fellow vendors from displays and products. Occasionally there are factors that arise that are beyond BUST's control. BUST cannot issue refunds beyond the refund periods for the following: weather, failure to provide reasonable protections to products, lack of sales or other unforseeable events. 

Is electricity provided?

Yes. Because the venue does not have natural light, we advise that vendors bring their own light sources; all bulbs must be 60 watts or less. It is highly recommended that vendors bring battery powered lighting. All vendors are responsible for providing and securing their own power strips and extension cords. If you have electricity needs above and beyond a standard outlet (i.e. high-voltage outlets for cooking), please inform the BUST Craftacular team ASAP after submitting your application. Vendors will be invoiced for additional outlets/tie-ins at cost.

Is wi-fi provided?

Yes. We strongly suggest that vendors come prepared with a non-wireless-based payment system in the unlikely event of a wi-fi malfunction.

Do I need a vendor's permit to sell at the BUST Craftacular in LA?

Yes. The state of California requires that all vendors of taxable items register for a seller's permit. This process only takes a few minutes and can be done online or in person. All accepted vendors will be required to complete a BOE-410-D form verifying their seller's permit status, per CA state law.

If you don't already have a valid CA seller's permit, we highly recommend applying for one immediately after completing your Craftacular application. Non-permitted vendors will not be permitted to sell at the BUST Craftacular, and no post-deadline refunds will be given to vendors who neglect to obtain a seller's permit on time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please refer to CA's Board of Equalization website and customer service department before contacting craftacular@bust.com with any additional inquiries. Thanks!

I am a food vendor, do I need a license?

Yes. Even if you will only be selling some food products, you will need to be prepared to present a license. 

We ask for two documents: 

  • A license issued by the State in which the food is produced. This includes Food Establishment Registrations or Food Packaging Licenses.

  • A Food Handling Safety Certificate issued for at least one team member who plans to be on site at the event.

How will BUST Craftacular | Spring! be promoted?

We employ a professional PR firm to promote each of our BUST Craftacular events. Additionally, we promote the event with advertising placement on craft websites and blogs, listings in local press, and email blasts to local and national mailing lists--as well as good old-fashioned postcards and posters. BUST will also provide promotional banners and graphics for vendors and fans to use on their online shops and portfolios.

Please see our past press portfolio for examples of event promotion.

Where can I find a list of vendors for this event?

A list of vendors will be posted on the BUST Craftacular | Spring! website in early April. Accepted vendors will be invited to submit a 125x125 pixel logo image for this page.

How can I help?

We love and welcome volunteers! If you're interested in spreading the word about BUST Craftacular | Spring!, would like to help the BUST team with behind-the-scenes operations on the day of the event, or are interested in other volunteer opportunities, please email Jules Abraham, BUST Events + Promotions Manager, at craftacular@bust.com

I'd like to promote my product, business, or brand at BUST Craftacular | Spring!. How can I do that? Can I give away my flyers at your event? Can I insert my products into the goodie bags?

We're always looking for like-minded companies to participate as sponsors and partners in BUST Craftacular events--whether this is through product demos, placement in our 300+ swag bags, sponsored DIY lounges, banners...the possibilities are endless!

The BUST Summer Craftacular is a semi-annual juried craft fair and indie shopping event. Our LA summer event will feature over 65 vendors of unique, handmade items: everything from eye-catching screenprints and children's toys to reworked vintage lingerie and one-of-a-kind jewelry, and much more.

The application deadline has been extended to Friday, May 30; applicants will be juried on a rolling basis and notified by Monday, June 2 at the latest.

 

How will vendors be determined? What kind of vendors do you accept?

We're looking for great vendors with high-quality, unique handmade items and well-curated vintage collections. Due to space limitations, vendors will be selected by the BUST Craftacular staff on the basis of quality and uniqueness of their wares, as well as to bring together a broad variety of products.

 

How big are the vendor booths?

We are offering two booth sizes at the BUST Summer Craftacular: a full table (6' wide) and a shared table (3' wide). We are also offering food truck parking spaces outside the venue.

All indoor booths are approximately 5'-6' deep (including your 30" deep table) and have a small amount of space on each side to get out from around your table.

 

Are tables and chairs provided?

No. If you need to rent a table and chairs, please indicate it on the application form.

Full-table (6') rentals are $15 and include a 6' table and two chairs. Half-table (3') rentals are $7 and cover your half of a 6' rented table as well as one chair.

Tables and chairs come as a package and will not be rented separately.

 

Can I share a booth?

You can certainly share a booth with another vendor! Please note that each vendor must apply separately and will be juried as individuals.

To apply for a shared table, please select the "half booth" (3') option on the application. You will then be prompted to indicate whether you need BUST Craftacular staff to match you up with another vendor. If you know who you'd like to share with, you will then be prompted to enter their name.

 

What are the booth/table fees for the BUST Summer Craftacular in LA?

Booth fees are as follows:

One shared booth (3'): $160
One full booth (6'): $250
One food truck parking space (outside the venue entrance): $200

If you are interested in an additional full booth space, please email the BUST Craftacular team (craftacular@bust.com) with this request once you've submitted your application. All extra booth spaces will be priced as listed above, less the $20 application fee. (For example, if you applied for a 6' space and would like to expand to 12', you would need to pay an extra $230.) Extra booth spaces are not guaranteed until paid in full.

If you're applying as a food truck, please send your truck's dimensions to craftacular@bust.com once you've finished your application.

If you are interested in an alternative vending arrangement (i.e. a cart or roving setup), please contact Maggie Carr, BUST Craftacular Coordinator (craftacular@bust.com) for pricing and availability.

 

How do I pay my booth fee? Is there an application fee?

You will be prompted to pay your booth fee by credit card or PayPal at the end of the application. You must pay this booth fee in its entirety in order for your application to be considered.

A one-time, non-refundable $20 application fee is included in your booth fee; it does not need to be paid separately.

 

Information on obtaining a refund of your booth fee is below.

 

When will I be notified of my acceptance status?

Applicants who apply by Thursday, May 22 will be notified of their acceptance status via email by 3:00 PM (Pacific Time) on Friday, May 23. Please note that the application deadline has been extended to Friday, May 30; applicants who apply during this extended period will be evaluated on a rolling basis and will be notified of their acceptance status by Monday, June 2 at the very latest.

Please make sure you add craftacular@bust.com to your address book so none of our messages get stuck in spam!

 

What if I'm not accepted? Is there a waiting list?

If you aren't accepted to the BUST Summer Craftacular in LA, your booth fee (and table rental fee, as applicable) will be refunded on Tuesday, May 27. Those who apply during the extended application period and are not accepted will be refunded on Tuesday, June 3.

Some vendors will not be accepted initially due to space limitations; they will be placed on our waiting list and notified as such. If you elect not to stay on the waiting list or we are unable to take you off the waiting list before the event, your booth fee (and table rental fee, as applicable) will be refunded in full. You are welcome to stay on the waiting list as long as you like.

All refunds will be processed less the non-refundable $20 application fee.

Also, please note that once you accept a vendor spot at the BUST Craftacular, all of our standard refund policies and deadlines apply (see below).

 

What if I have to drop out of the Craftacular? What is your refund policy?

We understand that life can be unpredictable, and as such, we have a refund policy in place. Once accepted to the BUST Summer Craftacular, you have until Monday, June 2 to cancel and receive a full refund of your booth fee (and table rental fee, as applicable). If you need to cancel after that, you are eligible to receive a 50% refund until Wednesday, June 11. After that date, no refunds will be given.

Those who apply during the extended application period will have a 5-day period after their acceptance notification to notify the Craftacular staff if they no longer are able to participate. After that period, they are eligible to receive a 50% cancellation refund until Wednesday, June 11th; after that date, no refunds will be processed.

All refunds will be processed less the non-refundable $20 application fee.

 

Is electricity provided?

Yes. Please indicate your needs on the application form. Because the venue does not have a lot of natural light, we advise that vendors bring their own light sources. All vendors are responsible for providing and securing their own power strips and extension cords.

If you have electricity needs above and beyond a standard outlet (i.e. high-voltage outlets for cooking), please inform the BUST Craftacular team ASAP after submitting your application. Vendors will be invoiced for additional outlets/tie-ins at cost.

 

Is wi-fi provided?

Yes. We strongly suggest that vendors come prepared with a non-wireless-based payment system in the unlikely event of a wi-fi malfunction.

 

Do I need a vendor's permit to sell at the BUST Craftacular in LA?

Yes. The state of California requires that all vendors of taxable items register for a seller's permit. This process only takes a few minutes and can be done online or in person. All accepted vendors will be required to complete a BOE-410-D form verifying their seller's permit status, per CA state law.

If you don't already have a valid CA seller's permit, we highly recommend applying for one immediately after completing your Craftacular application. Non-permitted vendors will not be permitted to sell at the BUST Craftacular, and no post-deadline refunds will be given to vendors who neglect to obtain a seller's permit on time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please refer to CA's Board of Equalization website and customer service department before contacting craftacular@bust.com with any additional inquiries. Thanks!

 

How will the BUST Craftacular be promoted?

We employ a professional PR firm to promote each of our BUST Craftacular events. Additionally, we promote the event with advertising placement on craft websites and blogs, listings in local press, and email blasts to local and national mailing lists--as well as good old-fashioned postcards and posters. BUST will also provide promotional banners and web-ready graphics for vendors and fans to use on their online shops and portfolios.

 

Where can I find a list of vendors for this event?

A list of vendors will be posted on the BUST Craftacular website in early June. Accepted vendors will be invited to submit a logo image for this page; the Craftacular team will send image specs at the end of May.

I'd like to promote my product, business, or brand at BUST Craftacular's Primped. How can I do that? Can I give away my flyers at your event? Can I insert my products into the goodie bags?
