The Hastings Flea aims to be a unique and inspired community market for antiques, art and collectibles. We ask our vendors and customers to help us achieve this goal by observing a few basic rules:
Each Vendor will review the Vendor Agreement prior to rental.
Merchandise must be kept in the spirit of unique handmade crafts, home goods, antiques, and collectibles.
Each Vendor is required to keep his/her own area clean. No one is permitted to leave any discarded merchandise, cartons, boxes or debris of any kind. These must be removed from the Flea in your own vehicles. Vendors who leave garbage will be subject to a surcharge of $25 and/or refusal of future set up.
Vendors who place merchandise on tables other than their assigned space will be charged. Vendors may “spread out” within the defined Flea area after 11AM if the adjacent space is unoccupied.
No vendor shall move any table from its location or affix or attach anything to a table.
There is no subletting of spaces to other vendors.
Management reserves the right to designate the size and placement of permitted vehicles and tables and the manner in which anything is displayed.
Every Vendor must, upon request, furnish his/her name, address and telephone number.
Management reserves the right to refuse rental to any persons it deems necessary, especially for the sale of certain items which are expressly prohibited: alcoholic beverages, explosives, firearms, ammunition or any item of pornographic or obscene nature.
The Hastings Flea Market reserves the right to move, cancel, assign or use any vendor space at its discretion without cause.
The acceptance and rental of space at the Hastings Flea by Vendor constitutes a complete release by Vendor of Owner’s liability from all claims for injury and damage to persons and property arising out of, or in anyway related to, Vendor’s use of the premises, injuries caused by others or injury to persons entering these premises or damage or loss due to fire, theft, breakage or collision, or articles left in dealers vehicles or on the premises, including all costs, expenses and attorney’s fees incurred by Owner in connection with any such claims.
