Open Applications

Please note that these are all Goth-themed shows, and we are only looking for Goth and Goth-friendly vendors. We are, however, open to all varieties of goth and goth-adjacent styles, and are more concerned with quality then if “pastel goth” or “dark academia” count as goth.

All vendors are responsible for obtaining their own sales tax permit for whichever state an in-person show is held in, as well as any required permits, licenses, or insurance they may be legally obligated to have. Ghost Ship Market does not provide permitting services or advice.

Finally, we do not allow human remains, knock-offs, candles with non-wax decorations (i.e., crystals and herbs on top), white sage by non-tribal members, weapons, controlled substances, or any other dangerous goods. This is not a complete list of what we do not allow; please refer to the applications for a complete list.

Online Shows

Online shows are essentially a shared online showcase. Participating vendors will be listed on this website in a dedicated show guide, along with a shopping guide highlighting their best goods. Customers are directed to the vendors’ individual websites to make purchases. There will be many posts on all our active social media channels in the weeks leading up to the show, with each vendor getting an individual highlight post. Additionally, there are optional shared sales codes, an official live schedule, and a shared charity to help with promotion.

Recommended for vendors who want to have weather-proof events on their schedule, or who want to find customers outside of their local markets. Best for vendors with an active online presence and regular online sales.

All online shows run Sunday – Tuesday, for optimal online sales.

Ghost Ship Market presents the Midsummer Online Market: June 23-25 (Sun-Tues)
Embrace the dark side of summer and discover unique treasures from our selection of goth creatives, curators, and metaphysical makers. Round 1 applications close May 21.

      Hi Scott!

      I just opened up a waitlist application for the Yule Marketplace. It’s linked on this page. 🙂 My apologies for taking so long to reply – I didn’t get an alert for your comment.
