What Type of market is this and what time does it open?
Greenway’s Melrose Trading Post is a market of antiques, collectibles, one-of-a-kind merchandise, and handmade arts and crafts. The market is open every Sunday, rain or shine, from 9 am to 5 pm, and features live music in the afternoon.
How do I get a space?
First, you must sell antiques, collectibles, furniture, or handmade arts and crafts. You cannot sell drug paraphernalia, weapons, replicas, adult material, food or drinks. The ability to sell in the market on a consistent basis depends upon the mix in the market. Due to high volume of vendors interested in selling there is a waiting list. You can also come standby early in the morning. You must also have a California Sellers Permit after selling twice.
How does standby work and where do I go?
Each Sunday we have a stand by line that starts around 5:30am at the Fairfax entrance of the school (and continues through the blacktop parking lot). This line of cars usually has mostly vendors with wearable items, but also has some vendors with antiques and collectibles. We give first choice to those with antiques, collectibles and art only. We then allow those with wearable items to book a space for that day. We take names down at 6:45am and start selling spaces around 7:30am.
Can I pay with a check on standby?
No. Standbys can only pay with cash or credit card.
Once I get into the market can I buy a space for the next week or the week after?
If you’re booked from the waiting list, your merchandise will be evaluated the day you sell. You must let the Vendor Coordinator know between 2-3 if you want to be put on the waiting list again or are interested in a permanent space. Only permanent vendors can sign up for the following week and must pay by check or credit card. (NO CASH)
What is a permanent vendor?
A permanent vendor sells consistently 1-5 Sundays per month in the same location. Not all vendors are eligible to a permanent vendor – it depends on their merchandise and availability in the market.
How much does it cost to rent a booth?
The size and price of a regular space are 10×10 ($60) 10×20 ($65) and 20×20 ($75)
Premium Section (Higher Traffic Volume) 10×10 ($75) 10×20 ($90) and 20×20 ($110)
