If you're local to Athens, GA we STRONGLY encourage you to participate in one of our events/markets prior to submitting your work for the shop. While we carry goods from around the country, we prefer our local lines to be from makers who are already a part of the Indie South community.
Please, DO NOT bring work or products in person to the shop or leave it at the shop to get feedback. We do not make decisions on the spot in person and we cannot guarantee the security of your items if they are left here.
If you think you think your brand is a good fit for our aesthetic and curated offerings, please use the following process to apply to be a wholesaler with us:

Artists are responsible for all their own set up including tables, chairs, tents, and tent weights, etc. You must not go outside your given space allotment; your display must fit inside the parameters. You must arrive at minimum 30 minutes before showtime or your space may be given to another vendor.
All items for sale must be handcrafted by the artist or vintage (meaning 20+ years old). We do not allow imports or re-sale items that are not vintage. We do allow for 20% manufactured and prefabricated pieces, but 80% of your goods must be handmade by the artist(s) or vintage. We will consider brands whose products are made by hand in other countries with a percentage of profits benefitting a nonprofit on a case by case basis. No MLM products. No exceptions.
State law requires that all vendors pay sales tax on their revenue from events. It is each individual’s responsibility to make sure that they claim their income and collect sales tax. Indie South does not require any permits, licenses, or ID numbers nor do we provide any forms or assistance in this matter. You should have a tax ID number and submit the appropriate forms to the revenue department. If you are doing an event in GA, you may pick up forms at the Georgia Department of Revenue, located in Georgia Square Mall. Their address is: 3700 Atlanta Hwy., Suite 268 Athens, Ga 30606.
Electricity is not provided at any of our outdoor events and not guaranteed at indoor events. You may bring a super quiet generator, or if the event is indoors, request to be next to an outlet. You may not run cords or wires from at outlet to your booth if it is not near an outlet–it creates a dangerous situation for patrons who may trip and fall on the wires.
There is access to bathrooms or port-a-potties at all of our events.
We cannot guarantee access to wifi, especially at outdoor events. Even at indoor events, venue’s wifi often will not accommodate 50+ people trying to access it at once.
