Little Shops Vending at the YMCA on 11/30 & 12/7


To all interested vendors:


To further explore the market for centralized, group selling, the Discoveries Action Team is working with The Family YMCA to host "Little Shops" vending events at the Y's gymnasium on two Saturdays in conjunction with the holidays:


  • Nov. 30 (Small Business Saturday) and
  • Dec. 7 (Winter-fest)
  • Set-up is at 8 am, vending is from 9am-4pm, take-down begins at 4 pm
  • Space size is approximately 8 feet x 6 feet, some wall spaces provided
  • Cost is $25 if you have your own table and chairs for both days
  • Cost is $40 if the Y provides the table and chairs
  • Cost is not discounted if you cannot attend both days
  • Registration is open now and limited to 47 vendors, first come first served at The Family YMCA, 1450 Iris Street
  • Participation will require you to complete a final sales report and questionnaire for data collection


Vendor fees will support the Y's financial assistance program. The Y will broadly advertise this event with a banner, press release, fliers and advertisements.


The Y and its gym will be decorated for the holiday with festive lighting.


And we will try to host up to 7 food-truck vendors in the Y parking lot, to help attract a broad audience; and inside we will host up to 8 singers/performers/groups/solo acts each day who are welcome to play for tips. The food trucks will be charged the $25 fee, but performers are welcomed to register for free, so please pass on this information to anyone you think may be interested.


Vendors, food trucks, and singers may register by completing this registration form and taking it to the YMCA, or stop by the Y to register.


Or, you may also register on-line here.
