What are pop ups?

What is a Pop-Up Sale?

We don’t have a set location to host our craft sales, so we work with local businesses to turn empty space into shopping space while we also give shoppers the chance to discover new local artists, crafters and handmade artisans. We are currently hosting sales in Edmonton but hope to move to Calgary and other locations soon.

We are not in it for the profit, so any costs to have a table are kept extremely low with a huge emphasis on word of mouth marketing, local business partnerships and local media sponsorship.

We want this pop up to be profitable for all vendors and for everyone to have a good time!

For the Community

Instead of seeing vacant shops in your neighbourhood, we bring you temporary opportunities to see, experience, taste, touch unique items made by your neighbours. Bring the family, even your pets, and experience a great way to shop and support local outside of farmer’s markets or once a year craft sales at Christmas time. Quality vendors with awesome handmade items are at every show.

 

Our Goals

  • Establishing On the Spot Pop Up Craft Sales in different unused business space across the city and the province.
  • Elevating local vendors who couldn’t establish themselves on their own to build sustainable commercial relationships with their community.
  • Building partnerships with existing businesses to reduce urban sprawl and bring retail opportunities to empty storefront districts.
