Vendor Info & Application

"Royaboya’s Handmade Bazaar is the best virtual bazaar I have ever been a part of.

It is well organized, aesthetically pleasing, fun and has a growing and dedicated fan base. Through this bazaar, my sales are stronger than any other virtual event I have participated in and I have gained customers outside of my state, who continue to purchase after the Bazaar’s completion. I would highly recommend this bazaar to potential vendors and shoppers alike! 5 stars!"

We carefully curate both the vendors and the audience, and end up with an engaging, entertaining and profitable event!

 

In addition to the virtual booth space, professional graphics and promotional materials, and access to the customer group, vendors are also provided a supportive training series in a vendors-only group, where training videos walk you through the logistics of this event and give ideas and inspiration for how to promote, engage, and maintain the connections you make at this Bazaar.

What do I take into consideration for vendorship?

  1. Your content: what are you selling and is it a good fit? Is there overlap with other vendors? Are you in the price range of our audience? Do you have photos that are a good representation of your products?

  2. Your community: How do you present yourself on social media? Are your messages in line with supporting mom and women owned small businesses? Do you have a community over competition mindset?

  3. Your connection: Are you able to be engaged during the event, providing communication, replying to comments, and being a hands-on vendor (even though it's virtual!) 

 

How do the Virtual Bazaars work?

--Bazaars are usually 2-3 days long.

--Bazaars take place in a facebook group. In the two weeks before the scheduled event, you will upload photos of your products into a designated album. 

--Customers claim their items by writing "sold" with their email address under each photo. You will then reach out to them for payment and shipping. YOU HANDLE YOUR OWN INVOICES AND SHIPPING.

--During the event we make it lively and engaging with a variety of games, giveaways, live videos, and other chances for engagement. You will be able to sign up for a time to go live during the event if you'd like.

--All of the vendors will also be asked to do as much promotion as they can! The success of the event relies on all of us!

  1. Booths are $150, with a $10 non-refundable processing fee. If you are not accepted, the $140 will be refunded.

"Being a part of Royaboya Bazaar was a wonderful experience for me and my business. I made friends and business acquaintances and now have my own arsenal of other handmade vendors to refer out! I love getting referrals and reorders from people who purchased from me and can’t wait to collaborate with the many people I’ve gotten to know. The bazaar is super entertaining and engaging. I really recommend everyone shop future bazaars and if you’ve got a small business definitely consider being a vendor!"

Danielle Trapp of Halisi Skincare

"I had such a fun experience being a vendor at the Royaboya Holiday Bazaar. It was incredibly well run, engaging, and interactive. It was intimidating at first, being my first time, but everything was so clearly laid out and the organizers were responsive and helpful. The other vendors were supportive and it had a real community feel to it. The whole event was innovative and unlike anything I've experienced, both as a vendor and consumer. I found a lot of goodies for gifts for myself and others. Thank you Roya for such a wonderful event, I'm honored to have been included!"

Jenelle Woodlief, Transformational Bodywork

"Roya - thank you so very much for an amazing event. Your hard work and clever marketing ideas within the event are fun, engaging & inspiring."

Erin Harwood, Garden Delights

"Being a vendor at Royaboya’s Handmade Bazaar has been one of the best decisions for my business. Not only was I able to increase sales and expand my audience but I was able to network with like minded small business owners.

Roya has set up a space where we gather to celebrate and promote one another while interrupting spending patterns. She helps put money into the hands of people who are looking to uplift each other.

I was also able to learn from other Vendors on how they are preparing and marketing their products. The learning alone is worth the ridiculously reasonable fee to be involved.

Promoting the event is made seamless with the assistance of Roya’s team member Kiera and her stunning graphics.

Overall this is one of those must attend events as a small business owner for the support, the learning and the overall beauty of being in a cooperative community."
