Roc Made Goods' events are open to artists who hand make their work ONLY.
Vendors such as Lularoe, Scentsy, Young Living, Pure Romance etc. are not permitted.
The majority of our participants are Rochester local artisans, but all are welcome to apply.
We are open and accepting to all BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ artists. We do not discriminate nor turn away artists due to how they identify, their sexual preference or skin color. We want our shows to be as diverse and beautiful as the world around us. Those of you who do not share our views need not apply.
Set up will begin at 10:00AM, no earlier. We will be located right on the first floor of the Stutson House. All artists will be set up towards the back of the building in a U formation. Once you arrive you can find me, Grace, at the Roc Made Goods table right up front, check in and grab your spot! If you haven’t been here before, there are two giant garage doors that open in the front, making loading and unloading a breeze. You can pull up to the front or side of the building to unload/load. You are responsible for bringing your own dolly/cart, there may be some available but it is not promised. After you unload your goods, please move your car to the parking lot next to Hose 22 Firehouse Grill. Artists are expected to be at their tables and completely set up by 11:45am.
Your space is roughly 8ft by 8ft. you are responsible for your own table, shelving, decorations, etc. Chairs will be provided. You are permitted ONE 8 foot table with additional floor staging props. Additional floor staging props may include, t-shirt racks, decorative totes, easels, card racks, stand alone shelving, carpets, etc. You have to clear all extra large set up furniture otherwise you will be asked to remove it from your display. If you do not comply, you will be asked to leave. If you are not sure if something will fit, just ask! I will be more than happy to try to work things out with you. Check out our Upcoming Events page for photos of past artist set ups if you would like something to reference!
You will be assigned a spot. You can not switch your spot. Everyone is mapped out according to their product made (ex. I try to keep jewelry artists away from each other) or specifications, like electrical outlets needed.
NO LOOSE GLITTER, CONFETTI, SPARKLY FAIRY DUST allowed. It is impossible to clean up and is not permitted at any Roc Made Good shows. If you have a product that has glitter on it, please just reach out and ask about it. Minor glitter on products are acceptable.
You are responsible for leaving your area in the same condition you found it. Treat each space we rent as you would your own. Please take all trash and disposable décor with you when you leave.
Electricity is first come first serve, if you do not make a note of it on your application, you will not be guaranteed an outlet.
DUE TO COVID-19 - We ask that each artist have hand sanitizer available at their table, as well as appropriate signage if they would like to enforce their own restrictions at their table/displays, such as no touching products, credit only, etc.
Due to COVID-19, Artists are encouraged to use cashless methods such as Square, Venmo, Paypal and/or Apple Pay to process transactions during our shows. This is not required at all, but recommended.
We will be located right next door to Hose 22 Firehouse Grill. Artists are welcome to grab some food to go and enjoy it during the event or bring some snacks! There will be a full bar serving beer, wine, cocktails and mocktails. Artists are also welcome to enjoy some drinks during the event as long as they can maintain a professional attitude towards our other artists and shoppers. You are not only a reflection of your own company but Roc Made Goods as well, during our events.
You are NOT permitted to break down before the event ends without prior approval. If you do not follow this rule, you will be banned from future shows. Not only is it unprofessional and disruptive, but it confuses shoppers as to when the event ends and may cause people to leave, penalizing vendors who stay the entire time.
