We appreciate and encourage all to apply, but please keep in mind when applying that we are representing a boutique and design event with high end products and services. Direct sales need not apply.

To present an excellent range for our patrons and maximise sales for each stall-holder, there are limited stalls in each category.

When we are processing applications, we have criteria, which we follow in order to prioritise the more ideal products to be represented at ABL. Your application, including images, online descriptions and all aspects of your business are seriously and carefully considered.

These criteria are as follows:
– items that are short run
– locally made/sourced
– eco-friendly
– unique
– aimed at our target market of 30-year-old+ consumers

This does not mean that each stall’s product has to meet every criteria, just that this helps us to choose between multiple applicants in the same category!

The market goers simply visit all participating stall holders shown on a printed hand out and have the stall holder stamp over their name. When the entire sheet is complete, the market goer fills out their name and contact number and submits it to the competition box located at the wrapping station to go in the draw to win a hamper full of stallholder products. The winner will be drawn at 3pm. Please indicate yes or no on the application form submission if you would like to he part of the Market Discovery; this would involve donating one of your products to be a part of the hamper prize and stamping the market discovery maps of market goers participating. Stamps will be provided by a Boutique Life on the day. Its a great way to ensure market goers visit your stall!

PAYMENT
As a small business owner you will understand that we ask for all invoices to be paid by their due date. Late payment is accepted by early negotiation only. We understand only too well, that cash flow can cause issues with payment and we are open and understanding about this. We ask that you respectfully notify us, and negotiate if you need to make alternative payment arrangements. Payment on Event Day is not available without prior agreement. Should invoices remain un-paid in full 7 days prior to Market Day, your stall will be offered to another vendor, as we have a high demand for spaces.

CANCELLATION
Should you cancel attendance within 21 days of Event Day, you will forfeit any monies paid and will be liable for 50% of your stall fee.

FLOOR PLAN
A floor-plan will be distributed to successful stallholders a week prior to the event. Through reflection and feedback from vendors and customers alike, we believe that the layout and venue provide all stall-holders with equal exposure to customers. We have many requirements to consider in our placement of stalls and do our very best to accommodate everyone. A BUMP IN timetable will also be issued with the floor plan.
