We will have a max of 10 fantastic creators setting up on the front lawn at each pop-up. You can sign up for as many of the pop-ups as you want, but PLEASE don't sign up because you "think" you might make it... this is not fair to the other vendors. (Also, you may not be invited back if you do this)
It will look really nice with our booths all set up along Main Street (you mush have a craft tent... lets be cohesive/professional.
You don't have a choice of location. I believe ALL locations are a choice location. it's first come, first served.
Please read below on arrival info AND Social
You can begin to arrive at 8:30 AM.
When you arrive please park directly in front of the property, unload your car, then immediately move your car (you can also park in the town hall parking lot (DO NOT park at the church!!!)
DO NOT pull into the driveway. There is no good unloading place there.
As many of you know, getting in and out is a bit tricky as we do not have our own parking lot on the property.
TEXT ME, Pat at 860-916-0514. Leave your business name and say you are here. We are planning on getting 3-4 vendors unpacked every 15 minutes so there is time for everyone to get set up.
You will be able to unload your car, then I will let you know where you can park so you are not taking up space on the street... We need that space for the attendees
After you park your car, then you can begin to set up your space.
At the end of the day, please get your space packed up and then get your car.
This is VERY important
For the success of our events, We all are required to do our part to promote these pop-up events. You need to have a FB presence as well as IG. And you need to post and cross promote with the other vendors in the show. I put the list of vendors IG handles below. Please
follow them, comment and post on their post
go to their account, see a post you like, click on the airplane icon and post their post to your story. Say something nice about the person, the product, the color, anything positive and also mention how they will be joining you at the upcoming event. I have done some of this already on my account. Go to @PatriciaB.DesignPoetry and check my stories I started to put out today. Notice that I shared a post, I wrote a quick caption and I added the location, and @mention to the maker as well as a mention to @CTRiverValleyInn. If you need help with this let me know.
tag their account and also tag @CtRiverValleyInn in all posts so we can be notified that you are cross promoting. I am serious about this. We need to make our event THE event that folks come to when they learn about them.
I am putting these events together to have a premier place for you to make new connections with customers and to grow and be successful. I am doing this as a community service and to do my part to support small local makers such as you. Most of you have been invited to be part of this... we all need to do our part.
