Community Rack

Sell while you shop! Shoppers will be allowed to bring up to THREE “hangable” items, like cover-ups, costumes, skirts, tops, etc to include on our COMMUNITY RACK!

If you have non-hangable items like CDs, DVDs, zills etc, please rent VENDOR FLOOR SPACE or TABLE.

Community Rack Requirements:
– Items must be pre-hung on strong hangers
– Multi-piece costumes may count as ONE item. Unrelated pieces MAY NOT be hung on the same hanger and count as ONE item. Those items would EACH count AS ONE item.
– FOR EACH ITEM: Safety pin a card stock label with YOUR NAME, PRICE, your phone #, and NUMBER OF PIECES (exp 1 of 3) to EACH PIECE.
– Please have any matching accessories in a strong ziplock bag hung over the hangers hook.
– Expect BUYERS to text you that they want to purchase your costume/item, if they don’t know who you are, and you are not watching over your items.
– Be sure to take all your unsold items when you leave.
– It’s highly suggested that you use cash and a secure payment service like Paypal/Square to make your transactions. It makes it easy for people to instantly send you money. Since many people don’t carry cash nowadays, giving them a credit card/account transfer option will greatly increase your chances of selling something. It’s recommended to set-up your phone or tablet device payment service app WELL BEFORE the souk, so you are ready to take money BEFORE you get here.
