Peddler's Fair

Thank you for your interest in our annual Peddler’s Fair!


In 2020, the Peddler’s Fair (formerly known as the “Antique and Vintage Fair”) will take place on Sunday, September 20, open to the public from 8 am to 3 pm. This event is presented by the nonprofit Folsom Historic District Association (FHDA).


IMPORTANT INFO TO KNOW:

To maintain the integrity of our vendor events, all new vendors are vetted by FHDA to validate that their offerings fit an event. Selection is based on many factors, with the most important being:

  • The items are appropriate for this event
  • The vendor has previous experience doing similar shows
  • Space availability

NEW THIS YEAR

The Peddler’s Fair will be sectioned by type of product. When completing the New Vendor Application, it is important you indicate which category you feel best fits your product:

  • Handcrafted items must fit into Makers/Artisans category and be at least 85-percent made by you.
  • All items that fall under Antique/Vintage or Flea categories must be more than 15 years old or upcycled from such.

A complete set of requirements, policies, and conditions will be provided upon event registration and will include a Vendor Agreement, Event Waivers, and pertinent documents:

  1. Vendors understand that all correspondence from FHDA will take place via email: No US Post Office services will be used.  Please add [email protected] to your contacts to avoid emails going to your spam folder and you missing vital communications.
  2. FHDA reserves the right to move a Vendor from one space to another, even if that Vendor received correspondence that he/she has been assigned a particular space. Should the space be more expensive than what the Vendor originally paid, there will be no additional charge. If the space is less than what Vendor originally paid, FHDA will arrange a refund for the price difference.
  3. Because FHDA events are family-friendly, no selling of “adult” items, hate-group items, offensive material and dangerous merchandise.
  4. No items can be displayed or sold that fall under the Endangered Species Act. Info: https://www.fws.gov/le/pdf/FactsWildlifeLaws.pdf 
  5. Vendors understand FHDA provides only spaces. Vendors are responsible for chairs, tables, pop-ups, power cords, etc. For safety reasons, if the vendor uses a pop-up tent or any other structure in his/her space, all items must be properly anchored.
  6. All booths must be neat in appearance and staged appropriately. Items must be clean, clearly priced and in good condition.
  7. Vendors must remove all items, including empty boxes and packing material. Failure to do so may result in Vendor not being invited to participate in future events.
  8. No flammable items of any kind are allowed in the booth, including portable propane heaters, generators, gas-filled balloons or space heaters.
  9. Vendor understands that no heating or cutting devices of any kind can be used during the event. This includes, but is not limited to, laser cutting and engraving machines, lamination machines, embossing machines, transfer sublimation machines, vacuum heat presses and any kind of heat press machine.
  10. Electricity is available only in certain areas of the overall venue and can be purchased for an additional $25 when registering. Vendor must provide own power cords, power strips, etc. and is responsible for securing items in such a way that they do not become a hazard to anyone (i.e., tripping, electrical shock). 
  11. The Vendor understands that FHDA events are invitation-only, regardless if the Vendor participated in a prior FHDA event(s).
