      • As the event gets closer, we will pair you up with another vendor who selected a half space so that the two of you can coordinate who should bring the EZ-up tent to share.
  • What should I bring?
    • Vendors are responsible for their own tents, tables, chairs, and displays. The event takes place on a dirt/gravel lot with some grassy patches, so rugs are also recommended to maximize your booth’s visual appeal and comfort. White tents and shade curtains to are strongly encouraged.
    • Extra cash: small bills and change.
    • Wear appropriate clothing. Tennis shoes or boots and jeans are suggested.
    • If you will be using a square or other mobile credit card device, test it out before the day of the event!
    • Business cards.
    • Read the knot too shabby blog posts on successful booth displays and suggestions for pricing guidelines when they are published.
  • Do I need any special permits?
    • The City of Glendora requires that all vendors obtain an appropriate business license to sell in a public venue. Applications can be obtained from the City website or at City Hall.
    • The state of California requires all vendors to obtain a temporary seller’s permit.
  • How should I price my items?
    • We STRONGLY suggest you mark your prices down from your regular store/site- exclusively for the knot too shabby BAZAAR. Give customers an extra incentive to visit your booth. If your prices are too high and/or match your online prices, you may not sell as well as you hope.
  • Do I have to accept credit cards from customers?
    • No, however we highly encourage you to obtain a mobile credit card device.
    • In the case that you are unable to offer credit cards as a service, knot too shabby is able to process credit card payments on your behalf for a fee of 10% of the sale price.
    • Payments for any credit card transactions handled by knot too shabby will be issued via PayPal.
    • We highly discourage you from accepting personal checks.
  • Can I split or sublet part of my booth?
    • No, all participating vendors must receive approval directly from knot too shabby’s selection committee.
    • However, the knot too shabby BAZAAR will offer half-booth spaces–Perfect for vendors with small items or new vendors with fewer items to sell. If you would like to be paired up next to another vendor, you will have the opportunity to request so on the registration form.
  • Where can vendors park?
    • Vendor parking is available in any of the Glendora Village public parking lots (by Nelson’s Drugstore and behind Classic Coffee) as well on Glendora Ave. north of Bennett Ave. and Meda Ave. We ask that Bennett Ave. by the knot too shabby BAZAAR remains open parking for shoppers and for those who need to easily park to load purchases. Glendora Ave. has a 3-hour parking limit and will be unavailable for long term vendor parking. We will inform you if additional parking facilities become available in some of the adjoining lots.

    • No, there will not be electricity available. Devices that can be powered by batteries are recommended.
  • Will the knot too shabby BAZAAR be cancelled?
    • The knot too shabby BAZAAR will be cancelled (and not rescheduled) only under extreme weather conditions. We’re talking EXTREME…gale force winds and a hurricane-like downpour of rain. In the unlikely event that the knot too shabby BAZAAR is cancelled, we will be unable to offer refunds. It’s the chance we all take.
  • What if I can’t make it to the knot too shabby BAZAAR after all?
    • Please clear your schedule before committing to the knot too shabby BAZAAR–registration fees are non-refundable. It’s a good idea to make plans to have someone assist you at your booth, especially so you have someone who can cover for you in case of an emergency.
    • Additionally, if you fail to give 1 week’s notice before cancelling, there will be a $50.00 no-show fee. Having gaps in the vendor rows damages customers’ event experience, and each vendor’s potential sales. We STRONGLY encourage you to please have a backup plan in case of emergencies.
