THINGS TO KNOW before applying:

Thank you for taking the time to apply as a vendor with Piper & Chloe!  We LOVE our vendors, and feel so much excitement and satisfaction as we watch your products and shops take off! 

The shop owners of many of your favorite local shops & boutiques, scout our show to find the fresh, original looks our vendors are so great at producing, so it is a great opportunity to get your name and company out there in the spotlight!  We celebrate your hard work, your creative genius and talent.  Thank you for your application!

Please note that we are exclusively a HANDMADE event.  

In order to stay true to the aesthetic that we are so well-loved for; (a vintage inspired, hip little boutique), we do not allow for much overlap within our show.  Therefore, there will be a very limited number of vendors selling the same items.

The fees for the Spring Showcase 2012 are as follows:
- Entrance fee for our spring showcase is $45.  This fee is non-refundable.
- Commission fee is 18% of your total sales.
- Optional blog feature is $10.

Our blog receives a tremendous amount of traffic in the weeks preceding and following the show.  It is a great opportunity to give your products lots of additional exposure, as well as direct target clients right to your shop or blog.

Each vendor is allotted a 6’ x 2 1/2’ space.  We encourage variety and creativity in your display.  We love to see cute furniture (tables, chairs, etc.) used for your display.  If using a folding table, it must be covered – no exposed legs.  Large wire rack displays are discouraged.  For ideas on what other vendors have used in the past, please see our blog (piperandchloe.blogspot.com) and click on ‘a peek at past showcases’ in the sidebar.

The Piper & Chloe Spring Showcase will be held in Salt Lake City this Spring.  The location is adjacent to the DS Furniture Showroom, located at 2140 South 300 West.
