Please read the following before proceeding to the form
(even if you have done this before)
Hi, thanks for being here! Filling out this form indicates your interest in vending at the upcoming Boston Hassle Flea – which is on Saturday, February 22nd, 12-6pm, at the Elks Lodge in Central Square, Cambridge. This form does not guarantee you a spot. The organizers of the market select vendors based on available space – the main reason people don’t get in is limited space for tables. However, we will flatly deny applicants intending to sell or display items that constitute hate speech toward or cultural appropriation of any marginalized populations, or having previously sold or displayed items that constitute hate speech toward or cultural appropriation of any marginalized populations.
In this form you will provide information about what you intend to sell/do at the market, and what kind of space you need. What you select on the form will be what you will get if you are accepted to the market.
There are four options for spaces:
Full space, including table ($50) means that you get a six foot wide table all to yourself, that will already be in the room when you get there. (it may technically be a six foot section of an eight foot long table). The tables are 30” deep.
Half space, including table ($35) means that you get a three foot wide table all to yourself, that will already be in the room when you get there. (it is technically a three foot section of a longer table). The tables are 30” deep. If you need to have more than one person sitting behind the table, please do not select this option.
Full space, BYO table/rack ($40) means that you get a six foot wide space and you can bring whatever furniture you want – a table, a rack, some shelves, a few chairs, a combination, whatever. The depth of these spaces is about four feet, including space for you (and anyone helping you) to stand or sit.
Half space, BYO table/rack ($30) means that you get a three foot wide space and you can bring whatever furniture you want – a table, a rack, whatever. The depth of these spaces is about four feet, including space for you (and anyone helping you) to stand or sit.
Please double check to make sure you have selected what you actually intend to use, as requests for changes after you’ve been accepted may not be possible. Please do not select multiple options. Changes that are absolutely not possible: adding more space (ie you signed up for a half space but want a full space instead). Space is limited and we have many deserving vendors. It may be possible to switch from renting to BYO or vice versa, or to REDUCE space (ie you signed up for a full space but want to do a half space instead).
What happens after you submit the form:
First, the screen should change to a confirmation. Also, you should get an immediate automatic email with all the information you put into the form. It is quite possible that the confirmation email will get diverted to your spam folder. If you do not get either or both of these confirmations, please email sophia [at] brain-arts [dot] org. Please only do that if you truly believe your submission may have not gone through.
Applications will close on January 20th.
You will receive an email by January 24th, likely in the evening, informing you of whether or not you have been accepted into the market. If accepted, your payment will be due promptly via PayPal. If you do not receive an email by then, please email sophia [at] brain-arts [dot] org. You may want to add that address to your contacts in case the message gets routed to spam. Please do not email before Jaunary 24th unless, as previously mentioned, you have good reason to believe that your submission didn’t go through. We appreciate your patience!
