About the event

A Handmade Holiday at The Maine Mall

Where: Former David’s Bridal - The Maine Mall

When: December 2nd - 9th  Hours 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Early Bird Hours 8 a.m. - 10 a.m.

We have secured the former David’s Bridal space located at The Maine Mall for a holiday event that’s next level. We know how busy makers are during this season. With that in mind, we’ve created an experience where you don’t have to be present to participate. That’s right! We’ll provide the staff. I will personally oversee this.

This is a unique space that doesn’t work for some businesses. The unique layout is actually advantageous for us. These dressing rooms act as perfect mini-shops. We have 29 mini-shop opportunities available.  There are also 2 medium dressing rooms, 2 large and one extra large. The extra large space is approximately 400 square feet! If you would like to secure the extra large room you and I will need to discuss! It's $500 and would require a lot of setup. It's an amazing 

Additionally we have created 80 wall & floor spaces. These spaces are 4 feet wide, 2 feet deep and 5 wide. Some spaces have existing shelves and drawers and some do not. I will work with you to assess your needs and assign you the space that works best for you. Shelved spaces are first come, first served. You are responsible for furnishing your space. Plastic shelving units are ok in this instance.

There are two lighted cases at the register that are clerk-assisted spaces. These are ideal for high-end work.

There is a snark room where we will have things that maybe not everyone would appreciate. There is a $25 fee to participate in the snark room. If everything you have is snarky you’ll be subject to a traditional space and standard rate. These spaces are 4 feet wide, 2 feet deep and 5 wide.

There will be 8 pop up spaces for each day. Tables are provided and will be in their proper places. You must arrive to set-up by 7:00 a.m. and be prepared by 8:00 a.m. for our early bird folks. We are open until 8:00 p.m. and you will need to be there for the entire day. You should plan to bring a relief person with you! We will have a break area for you but I won’t be able to provide coverage.

You can absolutely have a mini-shop and host a pop-up table!

There is a large classroom with capacity for up to 20 persons for a class at a time. We can host 3 classes/workshops each day. These would be at 10 a.m. / 2 p.m. / 6:00 p.m. Classes need to be no more than 90 minutes. We will handle your ticket sales and take 25%. You provide all materials, lesson plans, etc. To host a class send an email to info@mainemicroartisans.com

We will sell daily early bird access with some perks. This system was highly successful at our mother’s day event. The early birds will shop from 8:00-10:00. The tickets will be limited to 50 each day. Those people will have first dibs on the restocks on the shelves and the pop-up makers those days. We will do a great job making them feel special and inviting them to linger and shop. We’ll have refreshments, gift bags and an inviting atmosphere. Holiday shopping at its very best.

This pricing is separate from your MMA contract and fees. This event will have separate reporting and a 25% commission rate.

Mini-Shop - $150

Regular Retail Space - $100

Medium Shop - $200

Large Shop - $250

Extra Large Shop - $500 - You must reserve directly with Mary. 

Single Day Pop-Up Space - 6 Foot Table & Chair Provided. $50-$75

Lighted Jewelry Case at Cash Wrap - $75

Snark Room - $25 participation

You will be responsible for providing the shelving for your space, regardless of which one you select. You cannot affix items to the walls.

We will create a huge advertising campaign for this. We will be open for 12 hours each day. 10 of them are open to the general public. Those 10 hours we estimate we’ll have an average of 50-60 customers per hour with up to 100 customers per hour during peak hours. I am confident estimating the response to this in the thousands.
