Licensed Products:

  • We love to see originality!  Please do not include products with another businesses trademarks.  Trademarks include trade names, words, symbols, designs, logos or designs.

  • Please keep your booth set up until market hours are over.  Packing up early will result in not being invited back to Inspirations Market in the future.

  • Please stay within your booth dimensions.  This keeps aisles open, and keeps your displays from crossing over into other people's booths.

  • There are no tables or chairs available for rent at this venue.

  • All displays must be secure and safe.

  • All makers are required to report any damages to the property, and to keep your booth clean throughout the event.  Inspirations will not be held responsible for damages.

Maker Posts:

  • We require all makers to post a minimum of 3 times in advance to show time to help spread the word.  We advertise extensively both in time and financially, and this helps us get the word out there even more.

  • We also love to see our ticket link added to your Instagram bio, or a ticket link as a Facebook post about a month in advance to market time.  More info to follow.

  • And as a bonus, we would love for you to let your followers know when you've been accepted so they can mark their calendars.
