July 2012 DTLA Art Walk – happening soon!

Vending Invitation

Invitation to vend at Downtown LA Art Walk

Thursday, July 12th, 2012 5-11pm
@334 South Main Street. Los Angeles, CA 90013

 Original application with details here
Returning vendors do not need to fill out the application again. Simply message me back if you’d like to vend.

PARTICIPATION COST: All vendors are pooling together resources to pay for a retail space at art walk for only $40 per spot. Dani Shriver will be responsible for paying the entire fee, coordinating creatives, space assignment, and may vend if there is room/time.

ADDTL INFO: Art Walk begins at 5pm, so early set-up is mandatory. You also must be able to get your display and items to and from your car in a timely manner and follow all the rules. Have prices lists, and labels for what things are.

RAFFLE: A raffle will be promoted leading up to the event and completed before the event is over. Raffle tickets can be purchased anytime for $1, and will be given away with purchases of $20+. An announcement will be done at a marked time for one item worth $20 or so (at a time) and the winner(s) must be present. Each vendor can choose to put in an item worth $10-20, and each item will be raffled off individually so there will be multiple winners. All those with non-winning raffle tickets should be offered a discount of a few bucks off vendor items in the shop to generate more sales. I want to be clear that participation and offering up raffle prizes is completely 100% voluntary for vendors. I will have a few pieces to start with of my own creations and you guys are free to add to the table if you like. Anyone that participates in the raffle gets a cut of the raffle ticket sales – its not a lot, but it helps get back your booth fees.

We have room for more creatives and we’ll get a space to match interest – medium retail unit for 6 vendors and large retail unit for 8-12 vendors. This is the second summer Art Walk of the year and its a great time to meet other artists and network your buns off. You find out about other opportunities and make sales.

Here is a general map of the venue. We are hoping to have enough vendors for a medium or large space.
Medium spaces require 6 tables to break even on the booth fee. Large spaces require 8-9 vendors to break even.

This is a rough layout for a medium unit:

This is a rough space layout for a large unit:

For those of you that might be interested in vending at art walk after we’ve filled our spots, the venue has other options available, though working as a collective is cost-saving technique.

Do not hestitate to email with questions or concerns.
