Vendors require pre-approval and must meet the guidelines of REpurposing, REfurbishing, and REfreshing. Products will need to consist of handmade, homemade, refurbished, reimagined, upcycled, vintage, or antique goods consistent with the Born in a Barn theme.
If you are interested in participating as a vendor in Born in a Barn and have not previously done so, please submit the form on this page to acquaint us with your awesomeness!
You should have received an email invitation to participate. If you have not received, please fill out the form on this page so that we may double-check your email address. You can expect to see registration materials arrive in your inbox in early July 2018.
HERE’S THE SCOOP FOR 2018:
We will again be charging guests a $5 entrance fee (children are free) to enjoy a day at Born in a Barn. This fee helps pay for all the live music, Barn Boys, porta potties , garbage disposal, security, and so much more!
The food court will be back and better than ever this year, with live entertainment all day Friday and Saturday. Vendors and customers can shop, take a snack break and shop some more! We are looking for non-duplicated food providers, and unique, homemade items. Food booths will be in tents and trailers only again this year. We request that your food booths include some type of décor in keeping with our barn theme; that is, more than just a white tent and table. We will provide hay-bale seating and some tables and chairs, but please bring additional seating if you’d like! The Bale Bar will be back again this year, hosted by one of our local bars.
All vendors will be placed as we see fit, to prevent all jewelry vendors or furniture vendors getting clumped up together, and to facilitate traffic flow. Your products will need to consist of handmade, homemade, refurbished, reimagined, upcycled, vintage, or antique goods. What we are not looking for is regular retail booths or chain sales such as jewelry (Lia Sophia), cookware (Pampered Chef), etc. I have nothing against these types of products; this just isn’t the right venue for them.
Big barn vendors will have the luxury of being inside and locked up at night! Reservations for indoor barn booths will be granted on a first-come, first-paid basis. Inside the big barn we have room for 34 vendors – 24 with electrical in 8′ x 15′ spaces in the wings of the barn, and 10 without electrical in 8′ x 10′ spaces down the center of the barn. If you want a double booth in the barn, simply reserve two singles.
Outside in the barn yard, you can set up a 10’ x 10’ tent or awning or be brave and spread out without cover. You may also purchase a 10′ x 20′ double booth. If you are so lucky as to have a trailer, van, or camper that you sell out of, send me a photo and we will see if we can fit it in for your outside booth.
And what will you get for this minimal investment, you ask? I will provide the space, the parking, the signage and the advertising (this year I will be buying additional ads in Billings, Gillette and Casper). We also provide our own Barn Boys, to help buyers load their large purchases. And I’m going to rent 16 porta potties for the public and 2 private for our vendors. Oh, and chickens – the chickens will be here!!
Thanks tons – I’m looking forward to seeing all of you next fall!!
