Darksome will take place 3-4x per year in Philadelphia. Spring and/or Summer, Halloween and Holiday with the possibility of expanding to other cities.
Content of Your Art
You cannot sell any work that is racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist or prejudiced in any way. This is an inclusive market and hate will not be tolerated.
Anyone who has directly copied/stolen another artists work and claims it as their own will not be welcome to vend at the market. If a vendor has been accepted and the organizer discovers any sort of work has been copied, Darksome has the right to bar the vendor from selling at the market.
Only 2 people may split a 10x10 booth, more than that is not allowed. You must BOTH apply separately AND enter each other’s business names on the application in the provided space. (The exception is an art collective, you must have your own collective websites and be an actual collective).
Selling Your Space
YOU CANNOT DO THIS. Other markets might do that but DARKSOME is not one of them. This is a carefully curated market. You may not sell your booth to a random person. All booth placements must be done through Darksome and the application channel.
Waitlist & Rejection Notices
If you are not accepted for the market, do not fret. So far the number of booth spaces at the venues have varied from 30-100 and unfortunately there isn’t always space for everyone. Smaller shows will be more tightly curated than larger ones. Therefore, you have a greater chance of getting into the larger shows.
Only those vendors who applied by the deadline, (and were not initially accepted) may be added to the waitlist
If you cancel within 1 month of the event, you will not receive a refund due to the proximity of the event and there are NO exceptions. If you cancel 1-3 months before the event, you can receive a partial refund for half of the paid booth fee.
Darksome has some outdoor events. Unfortunately, we can’t control the weather. Outdoor markets happen RAIN OR SHINE. In the case of severe weather, such as thunderstorms, markets will have a rain date. Typically with Saturday markets, the rain date will be the very next day.
PA Sales Tax
If you sell taxable goods, you are responsible for collecting and reporting Pennsylvania sales & use tax. Darksome Events LLC is not responsible. PA sales tax is 6%. Philadelphia sales tax is 8%, Pittsburgh sales tax is 7%
