THIS IS WHERE IT'S AT!:
Located outdoors on a historic dairy farm in Omaha, Nebraska. The Junkstock Farm is sure to bring you memories to last a lifetime. It's full of character, adventure, fun, food, music & junk!
Vendors must carry enough stock to keep their booths filled for all three days.
The show will go on rain or shine and booth fees are nonrefundable for any reason.
All spaces are outdoors. We prefer that you have a tent. We are going for a unique high end shopping experience, and we feel that a tent looks nicer. It also protects your merchandise from weather. Shims are also a great item to bring as we are on the farm and the grounds can be uneven. They are a huge help in stabilizing larger merchandise. If you're interested in renting a tent please let us know on your application, otherwise you're more than welcome to provide your own.
Electricity is only available for food vendors.
OVERNIGHT SECURITY IS PROVIDED TO ASSURE THAT YOUR MERCHANDISE IS SAFE AND SOUND.

It means that your application will be reviewed by a group and you'll be selected base upon the photos and information you provided when filling out the application. (The photos you send are very important in this process) Originality, the quality of product and booth display are all key when viewing your photos. Within 14 days after receiving your application we'll contact you via email and let you know if you've been accepted.

Please show us your loot! You can upload 3-6 photos (on the application form) of what best represents you and your merchandise.
