DW signed up to sell at a pop up shop next week

January 27th, 2021 at 07:41 pm

My wife has been sewing for a number of years and has sold stuff here and there, mostly through friends and some word of mouth. Over the past few months, she's been putting more effort into the business. She started selling bags on consignment at an area yarn shop and has sold quite a few of them. She realizes, though, that she needs to expand her market.

There is a local business that runs an indoor (and in season outdoor) pop up shop every Saturday. For $20/day, you get a 9x9 space to sell your wares. It's not a flea market. It's mostly crafters: knit, crochet, soap, woodwork, flowers, jewelry, etc. So the people who come there to shop are the type who are looking for handmade items and understand that those sorts of things cost more than mass produced stuff at Walmart or Target.

The place does some marketing but also depends on each merchant doing their own advertising so we'll be blasting Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. to try and drum up business.

We'll see how it goes. If it seems like a good market for her, they do the pop ups every Saturday so she can do it regularly if it's worth her time.

    That’s wonderful! Good luck to her. I have a friend who sells various craft/Knick knacks (eg decorated wine glasses) and she sells at various markets and loves it. Because of it she also has a small website so through the lockdown periods she still had orders to fill. Hope it goes well for your wife!

    That's terrific and since it isn't a flea market or something like that, the clientele should appreciate her handiwork. Hope she succeeds.
