Terms & Fine Print:
After this application is filled out, it will be reviewed by the committee. Applicants will know at least two (2) weeks before their applied first Friday if they have been accepted. The earlier the vendor applies, the earlier they will find out about their acceptance. Once accepted, the vendor fee is due at least 1 week prior to the first Friday of their choice. With the acceptance e-mail, applicants will receive information regarding set-up & break down. Vendors are required to arrive by 3 pm to set up. They must be ready to sell at 4 pm.
Space is limited & the committee works hard to bring in a diverse selection of work to the market. If rejected from the market, applicants are welcome to apply to another 1st Friday date.
In the event of inclement weather, the committee will decide the day before the market if the event will close. In the event of a weather closure, the application fee will roll over to the next 1st Friday. If a vendor cannot make a date last minute they are required to let us know ASAP. Refunds will not be given.
Vendors are required to follow all legal & insurance requirements with the state of Pennsylvania:
The state of Pennsylvania requires businesses to complete a Business Registration & obtain a PA Sales Tax License to prove that you are collecting & submitting the 6% sales tax on items you are selling. By leaving this section blank on your application you/your business are responsible for accepting any consequences from the state. To obtain this, you can apply online using the PA 100 website. You will receive you sales tax number via e-mail in about 3 business days.
Vendors are held accountable for all of their items that they bring to the market. Historic Kennett Square will not assume any responsibility for any losses (injury or damage) during the event.
