Become a Vendor at Uniquely Local Always distinctive. Always Locally Made. If that describes you, we welcome you to apply to become a vendor! Promote your brand and sell your own-made products in our retail store and through our website—without costly overhead and administrative headaches. Read on to learn more about who’s eligible, what to expect, and how to apply.
What We’re Looking For Our ideal vendors are diverse individuals and companies in south central PA that make small-batch, quality products. For example:
Small-batch, small-scale manufacturers
If you make something unique...
Works of art
Small-scale, small-batch products
...Uniquely Local wants to talk to you! Even if you already sell your products online or in another store, you’re eligible to apply to become a vendor. What We’re Not Looking For Because Uniquely Local is focused on featuring locally made products direct from the maker, we do not accept vendors that are resellers, vintage vendors, direct sales reps, and MLM representatives (such as Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Norwex, etc.).
What to Expect as a Uniquely Local Vendor We offer two in-store vendor options so that you can participate in a way that will benefit your business the most. 1. Commission us to showcase and sell your creations in our retail shop.
You provide us with your inventory, and we manage the displays and staff the store.

No up-front fees; our commission is drawn directly from your sales.
2. Rent a boutique space in our retail store.
You get your own dedicated boutique space within our store.
You stock your space and set up product displays.
You organize and clean your space.
We handle sales and customer service.
You pay an affordable monthly rental fee for your boutique space and a reduced commission on your sales within our store.
With either option, we can also sell your products online through Uniquely Local ‘s web store.
We upload your business bio, product details, images, and pricing.
We handle packing and shipping all online orders.
You compensate us on a commission basis (a percentage of each sale) when products are purchased through our website.
As a vendor, you will enjoy the many advantages of being a part of our in-store and online marketplace.
Opportunity to boost sales—thanks to increased awareness and expanded availability of your products through the Uniquely Local brand.
More time to focus on making your creations while Uniquely Local manages your in-store and online sales and customer service.
