You have questions and we have answers!
We have a list of our most popular FFDC vendor questions.
I’d love to be a part of a Femme Fatale DC Pop Up. How do I join?
We'd love to see what you’re making! Please submit your application here
I submitted my application – what’s next?
We have two steps. The first requires you to fully complete the application. Once we have reviewed everyone’s application we will let you know if you have been selected. If you have been selected you will move on to the second round.
The second round is the acceptance cycle. We will let you know that you have been selected and begin the process of you becoming a part of the Femme Fatale eco system. It’s important that you respond within the specified times so that you don’t lose your space.
Is my application fee refundable?
No, once you have submitted your application your fee will not be refunded to you regardless of you changing your mind or being declined as a vendor.
What happens if my business is not selected?
If your business is not selected; you will receive a letter letting you know within 3 weeks of the application closing date. Please don’t be discouraged, we encourage you to try again for future pop up shops and FFDC events.
What legal forms do I need in order to sell?
In order for us to accept your application, you must provide your EIN or Tax ID number or social security number. FFDC does not offer legal and/or tax advice or guidance.
What size space will I have?
FFDC does not rent assigned space. Each seller will be a part of the entire FFDC popup so that buyers receive a cohesive and harmonious shopping experience. FFDC popups are boutique shopping experiences.
How is rent determined?
FFDC aims support womyn entrepreneurs by offering a fair rental fee so that you can grow your business and make a profit. If you are accepted, rent will be approximately $200 (your final rental agreement will be based on the size of items and space required).
Is rent flexible?
FFDC has created a very reasonable rent structure. We expect that rent will be paid based on the agreed upon terms. If you have been selected, we request that you pay your rent on time and let us know if you are unable to do so. There is also a late fee for each late rental payment and continued late payments may result in removal from FFDC and the inability to participate in future FFDC events.
Do you offer sales & inventory support?
We do have a sales staff but you are responsible for managing your inventory. We do have support that you can opt into at a minimal cost.
Can I bring excess products so that my inventory never runs out?
FFDC provides a small amount of storage but all vendors are expected to visit the store monthly to replenish and manage their stock.
Can I host an event at FFDC if I am not a part of the pop-up shop?
Yes, you can. We are creating an option that will allow you to send us an inquiry using the “Host An Event” option. This option will be available once we open our new pop up shop.
What are the dates for future FFDC pop ups?
FFDC pop updates will always be posted to the calendar and you can stay up-to-date by signing up for our newsletter and following on Facebook and Instagram @femmefataledc.
Where will you be located?
We have secured our newest location at 425 Massachusetts Ave, NW. We will announce our opening date in the upcoming weeks.
