Event description


This application is to be used by vintage vendors interested in selling at Minneapolis Vintage Market. Please read this page carefully before submitting your application. For full details on selection criteria and what is included in your stall fee, please visit mplsvintagemarket.com.

This is a one-time application; once approved you will be eligible to register for all future market dates as they are released. Vendors who are already approved to sell with us do not need to reapply each year.

The application fee is $15.00 and is non-refundable and non-transferable. Vendors should review the application and the selection criteria carefully and submit accurate descriptions and links to your collection to ensure your application can be reviewed. Incomplete applications will not be processed. If your application is successful, you may register for as many dates as you want, subject to availability.

Selection Criteria
At Minneapolis Vintage Market, we are seeking high quality, curated collections of clothing, home goods and more. Please note that Minneapolis Vintage Market only accepts applications from vendors selling genuine, high quality vintage merchandise, and we do not accept applications from thrift re-sale or flea vendors. You must confirm within the application that at least 90% of your collection is dated pre-2000.
Our shoppers are looking for one-of-a-kind pieces, quality brands, and a well-thought out shopping experience. As such, we carefully review all trader applications, and make our selections based on the following criteria:

  • Cohesive collections of high quality vintage clothing, memorabilia or home goods
  • Creativity and professionalism of branding, including social media channels and the presentation of images or collateral used for marketing.
  • Genuine untouched* vintage merchandise. All traders must affirm that 90% of their collection is dated pre-2000

*If you are an artist who uses vintage components to create your artwork, please apply to our sister market, Minneapolis Craft Market instead. Light repair or refinishing that does not significantly alter the original piece is considered OK for vintage merchandise.

Please visit our website FAQ page for more details about the types of vendors we are looking for and how our markets work.

Application Process
We will review and respond to your application within 14 days. If you do not receive a response within this time frame, please email holler@mplsvintagemarket.com.

If your application is approved, you will be sent an approval email containing the following:

  1. A request to submit your ST19 form (Operator Certificate of Compliance) as evidence that you have a valid MN tax ID number, or do not need to have one per MN Dept. of Revenue rules. This form must be completed and returned to us before you will be able to participate in the market.
  2. A link to register and pay for upcoming market dates. You may register for as many dates as you want, subject to availability.

See the FAQ page of our website for full details on the set-up and amenities at each stall, and how to be prepared for selling at the market.

If you have any questions about the application process, please email holler@mplsvintagemarket.com.
