Stall Hire Includes:
Dancers Market will allocate all stall locations prior to the date of the market. These are allocated making sure where possible similar products and categories are spread around the market. Stall allocations are final and those stalls booked first will receive higher traffic area stall locations where possible.
It may be necessary to rearrange stall locations on market day to improve traffic flow and layout. Where possible stallholders will be notified prior if these changes do occur. Maps and directions for stall locations will be provided on market day so please check or ask a member of staff for any assistance.
Goods placed in front of your stall must not be deeper than half metre. This causes congestion in the aisles and if your goods are congesting the aisles Dancers Market staff will ask you to rearrange.
Dancers Market has a designated area for large items (props, chairs, backdrops, tables ect) placing clearly marked items (using the labels provided) in this area will leave more space at your table for smaller items (shoes, accessories, materials, costumes ect)
Set up and pack up time:
Doors open to stallholders between 7am - 7.30am (subject to venue) Stallholders will be advised of exact opening times closer to the market date. Doors are closed at 8.30am (subject to venue) and if at this time stallholders have not arrived Dancers Market staff will rearrange if necessary. There is no refund to absent stallholders. All stalls must be set-up and ready to trade by 8.50am (subject to venue) and trade until 1pm (or 1.30pm in WA) that day. We suggest that you arrive early to avoid congestion when unloading your vehicle in the designated areas.
When transferring goods in and out of the venue, please DO NOT drag items across the floor. Any damage (ie scratching) will result in the stall holder having to pay all related damages. If you are placing racks, buckets, boxes on the floor please ensure these do not scratch. It may be necessary to place a towel or rug underneath to avoid damage.
You can bring one or two small clothes racks to place on the side of your table on market day. Circular, large commercial racks, over-sized homemade racks are not permitted. Any racks that take up more space than is allocated will not be approved on market day. You will have approximately 50cm beside your table to place your rack. You will be asked to remove any racks that do not meet these guidelines on market day.
Please note - Dancers Market does not provide any racks for hire, you are required to provide your own.
It is important that only clean, safe, good quality, functional items are sold in the designated areas. Items must be complete with all screws, cables, quantity (where necessary) and size dimensions (if not assembled). If assembly is not possible due to size please provide photos of assembled items to avoid confusion.
Any items that are not clean, functional or in good condition will not be accepted by the Dancers Market staff. We ensure our customers that they are buying quality and functional products.
Drop off for large items is strictly between 7.30am -8.30am (subject to venue). Any large items which arrive after this time will not be accepted.
