Tips for New Sellers

  1. Visit us first
    We recommend you visit us during business hours before renting a space. It will give you a good understanding of our crowd and the current competition for your idea.
  2. Prepare for launch
    An inviting setup is key to success. Get your space ready by having eye-catching signage and display material. Review our rules for guidelines, and let our leasing team know if you want to purchase signage using our on-site vendor.
  3. Get set up
    Coordinate with our leasing team on a space and move-in date. If you have any construction needs, we have on-site contractors available through the office.
  4. Give it some time
    In order to get your new business out there, we recommend you commit to at least 4 weeks to testing the market. That will give you time to build up sales and learn how our customers work.
  5. Smile and greet
    Make an effort to engage with customers and detail your products. People feel more comfortable buying when they understand the facts.
  6. Network with other sellers
    Talk with other vendors and let them know about your new business. Customers often ask other sellers where they can find certain items, and if they know where you are they can send them your way.
  7. Utilize social media and website
    Create social media accounts for your business and add them to your vendor listing on our website. You can also add photos and business information to your listing on pendflea.com to increase your reach.

La Vaquita Flea Market
Pet Vendor Guidelines / Standards / Procedures

Here at La Vaquita Flea Market, we take selling pets very seriously and their humane treatment is of utmost importance.  We understand that when a customer purchases a pet, it is like taking a new family member home for the first time or a long lost friend coming to stay with you. Therefore, we take pride in making sure that all of our pet dealers are reputable breeders and that they and their kennels are licensed through the Department of Agriculture. All pet vendors must sign a pledge to uplift the standards of La Vaquita Flea Market when selling pets at the Market. Animal vendors should make each and every transaction with the expectation of 100% customer satisfaction.

Ethics

Vendors will treat all animals as we would like to be treated and will show compassion and respect for all living animals. Therefore, a vendor is to place puppies/animals in a kennel/cage for display; whereas, each puppy/animal has enough space to sleep comfortably, play, eat and take water without being on top of another puppy or animal. Further, the kennel/cage is to be as such that the waste from the animals/puppies flow downward or away from the animals so that they may be housed in a clean, dry disease free environment. The vendor is to breed, for selling at the Market, only the best dogs that have been cleared of common genetic illnesses. At La Vaquita Flea Market, puppies must be at least 8 weeks old to be sold.

Professionalism

  • Vendors take selling their dogs at La Vaquita seriously and customers should expect professionalism from each pet dealer. Therefore, we ask our vendors to do the following:
    Interview/speak with the prospective customer- Selling a puppy is making a match. The vendor wants to match the customer’s interests, expectations and capabilities to both the breed characteristics and their individual puppy’s needs. Permit as much interaction between prospective buyer and puppy.
  • Give Contract to each customer/buyer- Each vendor must have some form of written agreement with their customers/ buyers. Make sure the customer/buyer understands the contract. Discuss any question thoroughly with the customer. The contract should protect the customer as well as the vendor. Further, but, not least, a vendor is to give in writing to the customer an accurate term of his/her financial matters, guarantees or condition of sales; all of which, should be explained to the customer.
  • Give expected paperwork- Each vendor must provide required paper work and additional information on grooming, training, feeding and care. But, most importantly, give individual records of doctor visits for each puppy sold. If you give your puppy shots yourself, please let the customer know and give name of shots and dates. Also, give in detail the potential genetic and developmental problems affiliated with each puppy being sold. Provide references to local veterinarians. Please make sure that you are reachable by your customer after the purchase of the animal. Indicate a number/s where you can be contacted after selling the puppy. Please return calls to your customer. Respect and Courtesy are still expected after the sale. This customer may be a repeat customer, if treated respectfully.
  • Give courtesy and respect- Each vendor should meet a prospective customer/buyer with courtesy and respect by speaking to the customer as you would want a person to speak to you. Courtesy and respect to be exchanged between vendor and customer.

Knowledge

For the welfare of the purchased animal, each vendor should be prepared by being knowledgeable about each puppy in order to answer the customer/buyer’s questions responsibly and respectfully. Please see above, Professionalism- Ethics and Interview.

Support

The Market asks that each vendor be concerned about their customers and puppies for as long as there is a need after the customer takes puppy home. We would like for each vendor to be a good match with each customer as the customer and the puppy should be a good match. Should you an encounter an issue, La Vaquita Flea Market will advocate for an amicable solution for both Vendor and Customer.
