Becoming a Vendor

Your spot is only secure once payment is received. The deadline for the application with full payment is September 19, 2015. Upon completion of the application, you will be prompted with payment options.
Once you are finished with the application, please send images of what you are selling for promotional use to Stephanie.
What kind of pieces can I show?
Collect-O-Rama will welcome any art that is considered funky or out-of-the-box. This can include all mediums of art from various types of known or anonymous artists as well as creative vintage pieces/antiques. If you have questions on what you can bring, please ask questions in the "description" part of your application and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
What else should I know?
Collect-O-Rama will have two days. Friday, September 25 from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. will be our VIP day. This allows for some collectors and art enthusiasts to have a first look at all of the art being sold. Vendors will be able to arrive as early as 4 p.m. on Friday.
Saturday, September 26 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. will be our general admission day. Vendors may stay as late as 7 p.m. to clear their items.
This year our event will be co-hosted by Envision. The actual event will be in the Envision studio located at 1801 N. Spaulding, Chicago 60647. Envision's staff and volunteers will be helping us coordinate your space. Envision will be serving food as well as working alongside Intuit to have interactive workshops for guests.
Envision has a large parking lot and a loading zone. There is a side door for easy access from the parking lot into the building as well as access to the loading zone from the alley behind the building or the rear end of the parking lot.
Everything you check off on the online vendor form will be provided to you. All furniture rental is covered by your rental fee. You will get one of each item checked on your application for each space you have rented (i.e., if you check “chair” for a double booth rental you will have two chairs at your booth location).
If you wish to bring your own furniture or fixtures, you are more than welcome to do so as long as it fits within the space of your booth. If you decide to do so, please write within the description of what you are bringing that you are bringing your own furniture.
All vendors are encouraged to bring their own table coverings. We offer table coverings to vendors who need them on a first come, first served basis on the day of the event.
We encourage all vendors to take their own credit card payments. You can sign up for free at PayPal or Square-Up where you will receive a free card swiper in the mail. Download an app on your tablet or iPhone or take payments off of your laptop computer at Envision. There will be WiFi for you to use.
If you would like Intuit to process your credit card fees, please note the processing fee will be 5% which is twice as much as the above websites.
You will be prompted upon submission of your application to pay for your booth via PayPal. If PayPal is not an option for you, please feel free to call (312) 243-9088 with your credit/debit information or mail a check made out to "Intuit" at 756 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60642. The deadline for payment is September 19, 2015.
All vendors are allowed up to four volunteers to help unload and reload any art, collectibles or furniture you might be bringing. These volunteers must come to the event prior to general admission times as well as have their name on your application below.
