North Florida Crafts Vending Opps

CellphoneBags-71-CopyNorth Florida Crafts Vending opportunities may seem few and far between as there is no real resource for us to get that information. We have joined the No White Tent forum to find new opportunities for us crafts vendors but their is mostly events listed in the southern part of the state. Since we have been in the St. Augustine, Florida area for the last several months we have been collecting information about this area and places where craft vendors can go. Some of these are listed below and include information about the application process, what they are looking for and whom to contact. We hope you will find this information useful and if you know of any more in the North Florida area please post a comment below so we can add them to our listing.

They will be holding the event every month (unless otherwise notified) on the 4th Saturday. All items being sold must be handmade. Currently they are not charging for a vendor space but they may in the future. If you would like to be a vendor then visit their Facebook page and message the admin with your name, contact info, a description of your items with a couple of pictures. Also, right now they do not require any kind of licensing or business tax receipts but it is always a good idea to have your Florida Sales Tax Certificate and your business tax receipt from St. Johns County handy.
Currently, the fee for a vendors license in St. Johns County Florida is only $30 per year but you do have to go to the county Tax Office, fill out a form and pay your fee.
