With more room than ever, we’d love to have you apply and get your start in our QBM family!
We’ve featured hundreds of vendors since our first show in May of 2010. Each vendor is carefully selected to ensure a successful show for all involved. We consider the Market to be current, on trend, girly, fun, and unique. Areas such as social media presence, websites, past booth pictures, uniqueness and quality of handmade items are all determining factors when choosing vendors. We do not allow direct marketing companies and require all vendors to hand make a minimum of 50% of their booth items.
How long will you be accepting applications?
Applications open 4 months prior to the show (one week later for new vendors) and close two weeks later.
How big are the booths?
There are a variety of options for booth sizes. All can be found on the vendor agreement (link above). Booth sizes include any product placement on the floor and room for standing. There are no height requirements and no walls or partitions are provided We provide the space, you bring everything to put in the space. We REQUIRE a “back wall”, which can be wood, fabric, fence or creation of your choice, and we highly encourage side walls. Your booth should be like walking into a small store. More information is given upon acceptance to the Market.
Do I have to stay at my booth for the entire show?
Yes. You or someone helping you is required to be there during the entire event. You will be allowed 2 additional people in your booth (3 total).
Can I share a booth with my friend?
Unfortunately we do not allow booth sharing.
What is the cost of the Queen Bee Market?
There is a $25 non-refundable application fee for new vendors and a $225 fee for a 6’x8′ booth.

If you are not accepted into the show, your $225 check will NOT be deposited and will be shredded. The $25 application fee is not refundable.
Are booth fees refundable once you’ve been accepted?
No they are not refundable.
