Whether it’s nostalgia, a love of handcrafted art or plain old fun, something will draw you to The Bernice Garden Market. And once seen it, you’ll have to come back because everything is so unique.
If you see an item at the market, you’ll know it’s special – our rules are tough! All items sold must fall into one of these categories:
• Vintage = 20 years and older
• Antique = 50 years and older
• Upcycled/Recycled = utilizing older items to make new ones
• Handmade Goods
• Original Art
In addition, all items sold must be unique, esoteric, wacky, fun, high-quality and clean. The last two are non-negotiables. We host quality events at The Bernice Garden.
Like at our Farmers’ Market, you’ll always find smiling faces and meet up with old friends – or new. The Garden just attracts a good time.
Free admission for shoppers adds to the fun and convenience.
All proceeds from the sale of the goods and produce go directly to the market’s participants. Booth rental goes to The Bernice Garden to provide electricity and other amenities to the participants.
If you need any additional impetus to come, consider this: Vintage is not only fun, funky or beautiful, it’s also good for the environment. Everything that goes ‘round more than once is one less thing that lands in a landfill. And a healthy environment, something we’re proud to promote, is what keeps this old world turning. Along with vintage items, The Bernice Garden is proud to support local artists and craftspeople.
Interested in being a vendor? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Market vendor application, please” as your subject line. We will have 30 spots available this year.
Note to potential vendors: A Tax ID number is not required to sell at The Bernice Garden Market, but all vendors are required to pay 9% sales tax on all items sold. Please figure this into your pricing. If you do not have a Tax ID#, we will provide you with a tax payment form, collect your taxes due at the close of each market and remit all taxes to the Arkansas Department of Finance. We are legally bound to do so.
