Are you looking to sell pre-loved or handcrafted goods at the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market? Here’s what you need to know.
Perhaps you are downsizing, maybe you have estate furniture you need gone, or your kids have long grown up and you’ve found yourself with a garage full of stuff you no longer need.
There’s a story behind every stall at the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market, but no matter what they are selling, every vendor has two things is common: they have items they want gone and a desire to make a bit of cash.
The Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market is an iconic Melbourne experience, celebrated in art and literature, and a Camberwell weekend ritual for generations.
The generosity of market goers, via their gold coin donations on entry, has seen the market raise more than $16 million for different charities and causes to date.
And you can be a part of this story as a market vendor.
You don’t need to be a professional trader – if you’ve got stuff to sell, you too can be a Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market stallholder.
How do I book a stall?
Stalls cost $66 and are paid for online via credit card when you book.
Are tables and equipment available for hire?
The Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market offers a range of items to help you set up and run your stall. They can be hired on the morning of your booking and a $20 security bond is required.
The market hires out the following:
- Trestle table (1.8m): $9
- Trestle table (2.4m): $10
- Clothes rack and two sandbags: $15
- Sandbags: $3 each
How far in advance must I book?
The earlier you book the better the chance of securing the date you want. Stalls normally sell out 10 weeks in advance.
What can I sell?
Make sure the items you’re selling are allowed. Stallholders are permitted to sell a range of second-hand goods or handcrafted items.
Customers love hearing the stories behind the items they purchase, so if those items are made by you, all the better!
You are not permitted to sell food, drinks or make-up products. New items for resale, and samples or seconds are also not allowed. The sale of animals or animal products is also prohibited.
What if I miss out on the Sunday I want?
If the Sunday morning you really want is fully booked, you can take a chance at securing a re-let stall.
Be at the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market from 5.30am, when management arrives, and at 7am bookings that haven’t shown up will be re-let to people in the order of when they arrived.
There are often 15-20 stalls per week to re-let, but there are also many people waiting to snap them up and there’s no guarantee you will secure one. It’s best to plan ahead and book early.
