The application period: will be open from October 2nd through October 10th. 

Click HERE for the application. 

Applications will be available from this blog at that time.

VENUE: THE GRAND EVENT CENTER, in East Long Beach ~ located at 4101 E. Willow located on the corner of Willow and Grand, one block west of Lakewood Boulevard, and very close to the 405 freeway. The Grand provides a five story parking structure with free parking. We will be in the Grand Ballroom, the adjoining Garden Room, and in the patio. 

Booth Space: Each booth area has a space of  8 feet wide by 4 feet deep and is for a free-standing booth. 

NO Central Checkout: Each vendor will need to collect the money for their own sales and provide change and bags for their guests. We encourage our vendors to accept cash, checks, and credit cards. Someone will need to be at the booth the entire show. Free WiFi will be provided for our vendors. 

Booth and Application Fee: The booth fee for our November 22nd show is $150.00 for each booth space. There is a $20.00 application fee for new vendors only. Booth fees are used by Penelope Lane Boutique to pay for our venue, advertising, and mailings. They also provide vendors with the opportunity to have their line accessible to shoppers from our blog. The $20 application fee is not refundable. Once accepted, booth fees are not refundable or transferable. When filling out the application, please be specific about the types of products you sell. If a vendor is accepted and wishes to add different types of items, Penelope Lane Boutique Coordinators MUST be notified to make sure that the new items are a good fit for our show. No sharing of booths is allowed unless this plan is discussed with Penelope Lane Boutique Coordinators first. 

What type of products are we looking for? Penelope Lane Boutique accepts vendors who provide quality handmade products, have creative booth presentation, are active on social media and/or ETSY, and provide a well-rounded variety to our show. All vendors, including vendors who have been in our previous shows, will be requested to fill out an application form on-line during the application period. However, vendors who have been in our previous shows do NOT have to pay the application fee. We HIGHLY recommend you look at our previous vendor's items to see the style of lines that we work with to see if you are a good fit for our show. 

Tables and Electricity: If a vendor wishes to rent a six-foot table or use electricity, there is a $10.00 charge for a table and/or electricity, payable with the booth fee. 

IMPORTANT: Vendor’s applications will be complete only after we receive the online application AND two separate checks: For new vendors, a $20.00 application fee, AND the booth fee of $150.00. If the booth fee is not paid before the end of the application period, the application will not be considered complete, except in certain circumstances discussed with Penelope Lane Boutique Coordinators. 

Checks should be made payable to Penelope Lane Boutique and mailed to: Penelope Lane Boutique 11263 Rochelle Street Los Alamitos, CA. 90720

Booth fee checks will not be deposited until after the vendor is accepted in to the show. If a vendor’s line is not accepted to our show, we will shred the booth fee check. 

All vendors will receive an email letting them know if they have been accepted in to the show or not within two days of the final application deadline. 

Thank you for your interest in being a part of the Penelope Lane Boutique!
