Specialty Vendor Application Form

Thank you for your interest in becoming a specialty vendor at Sip & Shop the Best of Missouri. Our event will be held November 4th 2017 on the Missouri State Fairgrounds located at 2503 W. 16th St. in Sedalia, Missouri. Join us as we showcase Missouri's best and most unique specialty boutiques, restaurants, and tourist destinations.

Sip & Shop the Best of Missouri is a great place to market your product or service to a state-wide audience. Specialty vendors will be selected through a juried application process. Type and kind of specialty vendors will be limited in order to ensure a variety of gift merchandise for our guests, while allowing each vendor maximum sales potential. For purposes of the event and application, a specialty vendor is a person or company that offers a high-end, distinctive product or service including unique restaurants, specialty boutiques, tourist destinations, etc .

Each day, vendor spotlights (aka ... PinterMISSIONS) will provide on-stage opportunities for vendors to showcase a particular product, demonstrate a specific technique, or otherwise feature a unique aspect of your business. If you would like to be featured during a PinterMISSION, please indicate on the form below. Vendors must submit :
  1. An on-line application (no paper applications will be accepted).
  2. A sample of their work or product. If this doesn't seem practical due to size or the uniqueness of the product, please upload a high quality photo and website link. Be sure to include the Product Submission Form with products you mail in.
Applications will only be considered complete when both items have been received.
The Vendor Selection Committee will carefully review each vendor application, product submission, and booth photos to ensure high-quality, distinctive products provide a wide variety of unique gifts for our shoppers. Presentation matters, so please provide a quality representation of your products and booth set up.
