About the event
Join Maine Micro for our holiday seaon. During the holiday season all merchandising of your items will be up to me. Ietms will be mixed together to create the best shopping experience for customers. You will have a featured segment on the video display screen. Your segment will discuss your work and anything you'd like the customer to know about what makes you so special. This will run in a loop during shopping hours. This interactive experience will give shoppers more insight into the makers in the space and will keep them engaged.
I will only be taking on 30 artisans for the holiday season. This will allow each artisan to have a generous amount of space along with more detailed displays for each artisan. It will also allow me to have a more focused approach to in-person sales.
