Before You Apply
IMPORTANT DATES & DEADLINES

NOV. 15 - Vendor Layout & Information Packets Emailed to Accepted Vendors
On Nov. 15, we will send out a full vendor information packet containing vital information for vending at the event, including but not limited to load-in instructions, setup instructions, load-out instructions, vendor parking information and any other information relevant to vending at the event.
If you need to withdraw from the event, your booth fee is fully refundable until Oct. 21, 2019 at 11:59 PM. Your booth fee is 50% refundable until Nov. 7, 2019 at 11:59 PM. For all refunds, processing times may apply. No refunds will be issued after Nov. 7, 2018 at 11:59 PM. When you withdraw from the event, you are forfeiting your booth space. You may not transfer your booth space to anyone else.
We completely understand how last-minute occurrences can affect one's ability to participate in an event. However, we are always aiming to have full events and any vendors dropping out at the last minute negatively affects the quality of our event as well as our ability to find replacement vendors.
WHAT DO WE CONSIDER WHEN REVIEWING AND JURYING AN APPLICATION?
If you've vended at a previous San Jose Made event or pop-up, we'll take into consideration our experience(s) in browsing and shopping your work and your booth.
We review your website and/or online shop to get a better understanding of the quality of your work and your story.
We review your business' Instagram (if available) and your business' Facebook Page (if available) to get a better understanding of your most recent activity as it relates to your work and your story.
We take into account the number of applicants who make similar products when arriving at our final decisions. For the sake of our vendors and the sake of our shoppers, it's important to provide a variety within certain product types without creating an overwhelming and overly competitive experience. For instance, if we accepted 25 vendors who sold soap, we imagine it'd be difficult for most if not all of those vendors to succeed despite the fact that they all make tremendous, high-quality soaps.

Selecting this option guarantees corner location placement if your application is accepted. NOTE: There are limited corner booths in the event layout.
