  • MOD MARKIT INFO KIT 2019

    QUICK QUESTIONS!

    Below is all you need to know about having a thrift stall at Mod Markit. We will be sending you your stall locations the week before Mod Markit which will include the exact details of where you will be located on the day as well as any other info required.

    How will my stall look?

    You will have a 1.5m x 1.5m space with a clothing rack that is 1.5m long. You
    can also bring a small display table if you like, or a basket, or anything else you feel might help you display your items that will fit in your space - get creative! You will need to bring your own clothing hangers!

    How would I bring my items?

    We highly recommend using suitcases or trolleys to bring your items to the event whether you are driving or taking public transport.

    How do I swap my items?

    If you see something your like from another stall holder, just approach them and let them know you would like to swap! Not all stall holders may want to swap, but there is no harm in asking, right? Just be kind, have an open mind and always have fun!

    Can I leave my stall unattended?

    We recommend hiring a stall with a friend. This allows allows you to have breaks, do some shopping yourself and even save money on rent. If you want the whole stall to yourself, you can request to be next door to a friend, we can accommodate this if you let us know in advance. We do not recommend leaving your stall unattended.

    Will I know where my stall is ahead of time? In the days leading up to Mod Markit we will add the Stall Location Document to this info kit which maps out the event space and indicates your stall number and location.

    Can I share my stall with others?

    YES! We recommend this. It can be tiring to be at a stall all day by yourself, and it also means you cant have breaks and shop yourself. We recommend sharing the space, or booking with a friend so you can be located next door to each other.

    Can I only sell modest clothing?

    You can bring any clothing you like, but as our event is targeted as a modest fashion event, Mod Markiters will most likely be looking for modest fashion. That said, we all know that even the most Rihanna-esque dress can be transformed with some alterations and layers to be the perfect outfit by any modest fashionista.

    How do I tell people about my stall?

    You will receive an email from us in due course with social media posts that you can use to promote your stall. Feel free to share our official event on Facebook.

     

    How should I price my stuff?

    We recommend you do your research and set realistic asking prices based on the condition and age of the clothes you are selling. We recommend you set your prices prior to the day and make price tags which can be easily made by cutting an A4 page into 10 pieces with prices written on them and pinning it onto your items. You should expect customers will engage in some form of bargaining which is common in markets; remember it is all part of the fun!

     

    Am I able to change where my stall is? Unless you need access to certain facilities due to medical or disability reasons, the stall number provided to you is most likely where your stall will be. If you have a disability or medical condition that might hinder your day, don’t hesitate to email me at thrift@modmarkit.com with your requests and we will try our best to accommodate for them.

    Have a question we haven't answered?

    Get in touch with me and ill get back to you as soon as possible, much love! Iffah x

  • BUMP IN & BUMP OUT PROCEDURE

     

    This is not a complete timetable of the day, rather it includes the times relevant to bump-in and bump-out.

     

    Bump-in and bump-out times must be strictly adhered to as it would allow for a smooth run of the day. If you miss your bump-in time you may be refused entry and are not eligible for a refund.

     

    Your safety and the safety of others is our priority. Your stall must be set up, maintained and packed down in a safe manner. You must have your set up complete within the bump-in time and your pack up complete during bump-out time.

    REGISTER AS SOON AS YOU ARRIVE

    Sign in at the front desk, you will be shown your allocated space and introduced to one of our team who will be your main point of contact throughout the day.

    10AM - 11:30AM: BUMP IN

    Since Mod Markit is at Queen Victoria Market this year (and on a Saturday, the busiest time of the week!) The easiest way to come would be carpooling so you have less cars to worry about parking all day, or even transport (pack your items in a suitcase).

     

    You can not drive in OR park your car in the front. You must be organised and bring your belongings in a suitcase or find a way to make it easily portable.

    5PM: BUMP OUT

    Begin to pack up, trading ends.

     

    Take any rubbish home with you.

     

    This year Mod Markit is partnering up with Epilepsy Foundation who will arrive at 5PM to pick up any items you have not sold, that you do not want to take home. All the profits go towards supporting their people who have epilepsy. They work to reduce epilepsy deaths, educating schools to cater for students who have epilepsy, and increasing quality of life in general for those with epilepsy of all ages.

    6PM

    All stall holders must vacate event space.

    Shed A at Queen Victoria Market is located under shelter, we recommend you come prepared with any weather protection you or your stall might need in case of any cold, windy or rainy weather. Safety is priority, ensure no items are displayed on the floor where it can pose as a hazard to those passing by.

    To make shopping at your stall an experience enjoyable for customers and to maximise sales for the day, come prepared with everything your customers will or may need. This includes carry bags (avoid plastic), correct change, and anything else you can think of. We highly recommend you have capacity to take electronic transactions to maximise your sales opportunities. Square and PayPal are popular options.
