So you want to be a Paper Daisy trader...
That's great! Here's a few things to remember when applying;
Unfortunately, we can't accept businesses without public liability insurance, if you need help with this then head over to our blog for some top tips - How to find public liability insurance for craft fairs?
We don't always provide tables or additional equipment so you may be expected to provide everything yourself! Please make sure you double check which type of stall you're applying for.
If you've applied and haven't heard from us, don't panic!! Paper Daisy is run by a very small team so we have to be strategic with our time. This means you may be waiting a while for a reply, but you definitely haven't been forgotten!
We aim to process all applications 2 weeks after the application closing date. Once each event or category is full we will open a waiting list and all applications will be automatically placed on the waiting list. Should a place become available or further spaces released, we will notify you by email.
We love working with small businesses!! Don't be afraid to apply if you've never traded at a market before, we're here to help you every step of the way.
If you are accepted, you will have 7 or 10 days to pay (please check your invoice). In the event of non-payment after 10 days from date stated on your invoice, your space will be automatically offered to someone else.
We consider each application with a number of criteria. Suitability of your product for the event, a maximum of number of similar products (to ensure fairness to traders and variety for visitors). Therefore please ensure you only list on your applications what you will be selling.
And if you have any questions then head over to our FAQ page! if you can't find your answer there then drop us an email.
2021 Events Update
We pride ourselves in putting on events with a great variety of quality products from our local makers/traders to attract as many potential customers as possible to make them successful events as possible.
Obviously with the ongoing Covid situation and foreseeable restrictions that will be in place for some time this will simply not be possible for some months yet.
We are therefore not going to raise false hopes, we will only be back once it is totally safe to do so and we can confidently run our events to the standard everyone is used to.
We understand it's frustrating but we also understand how much work you all put into preparing for events. For us personally, we invest a huge amount of time/expense into effective marketing to attract as many potential customers, whilst keeping costs for stallholders as low as possible - under any continued restrictions this will be difficult to maintain.
BUT we will be back, please sign up to our mailing list, follow our social media pages to hear news direct from us as soon as we are able to move forward.
In the meantime we have a group on Facebook that is free to join and post your business or products on to the local communities.
We also will repost any posts for free on Instagram to our followers if you tag #paperdaisyevents.
Keep safe, Keep busy, Keep making and see you soon!!
