Applications for stalls
OUR NEXT FAIR IS ON SUNDAY 23 September 2018. Applications are open now.
Stallholders are all ESA members
All stallholders must be fully paid-up members of the ESA. If your membership is not current, please arrange to remit your fee with your stall application.
Access and unloading
The Parkview Room will be open from 7.00 am on fair days. Access is via the Parkview Room double glass doors and the Library entrance for those with stalls in the foyer.
There is space for stall holders to drive into the paved area adjacent to the Parkview Room double glass doors. Please try to unload quickly so that others can use the limited space.
Please have stalls set up by 8.15 am and no trading before then.
Name badges will be provided to all stallholders and to one “helper” per stall table. Please provide the names when you complete the application form. Access to the Parkview Room, prior to the fair opening to the public at 9.15 will be available only to badge wearers.
There is early bird entry for ESA members from 8.30 am. The general public enter from 9.15 am.
The fair closes at 2.00 pm and we need to be out of the Parkview Room by 3.00 pm.
We ask that you do not start packing up your stall before 1.45 pm as there will still be customers in the Parkview Room at this time.
Dimensions of trestle tables
The trestle tables are strong, clean and new. They measure 180 cm long x 80 cm wide. (Half length trestles are no longer available.)
All stallholders will be provided with 2-3 chairs to go with their set of stalls.
In 2018 the fee for a trestle will remain at $75.
Price and description of goods
We ask that all stock is clearly price marked to avoid difficulties on the day of the fair.
Please adequately describe your goods. Note that misrepresentation of goods is contrary to fair trading and trade practice laws and will not be countenanced by the ESA. If you have reproduction articles for sale, you must ensure prospective purchasers are aware that they are reproductions.
Your attention is drawn to the Secondhand Dealers and Pawnbrokers Act 1990. The Act and Regulations cover such matters as licences, maintenance of record books and signs. Intending stall holders who consider that they fall within the category of ‘second-hand dealer’ should ensure they are familiar with their legal responsibilities.
Secondhand dealers must have their licences available for inspection.
Theft or damage to goods
Neither the ESA nor the Boroondara Council accept responsibility for the safekeeping of stock. In view of the risk of theft or damage at a public event such as this, you are urged to take all necessary precautions to protect your property and cover your risk.
Please ensure that purchased goods are always placed into bags – this provides an additional safeguard against customers mixing purchases with other items as they proceed from stall to stall.
Please observe the no smoking requirements inside and around the building.
