About the event
Join me for a 4-day Labor Day Event. This will be heavily advertised. The shop will be clean and tidy with retails shelves waiting for you. You will be responsible for setting up your display just how you'd like it. I will be onsite to ring up sales for you and chat about your awesomeness to customers, if you can't be. Your attendance is not required. It is heavily encouraged! Sales will always be better when an artisan attends. There are only 10 spaces for each pop-up event that I hold. You'll have 100 square feet of space, but not necessarily a square. Please see the floor plan with the marked spaces. Retail displays will be provided. You may supplement with your own displays. Any additional furniture pieces you'd like to use will need to be approved. We have to make sure our aisles are large enough and the the flow is appropriate for customers to move comfortably.
Please note front window spaces and the two back spaces are larger and are priced accordingly.
