Retail Dealer Opportunities

Chartreuse welcomes applications from creative persons who source great finds and/or create handcrafted goods.  Such persons who have retail selling space at Chartreuse are our dealers.  You can be a dealer at Chartreuse in two ways: ongoing, or as a guest.  As ongoing/permanent space comes available at Chartreuse, we usually extend offers to guest dealers. 

Guest Dealer Opportunities

We offer guest dealer opportunities for select events throughout the year: the semi-annual Market Days, and the Holiday Makers’ Market.  Included is information about each of these three events, and a direct link to our application.
