So the dust is settling and here is what I know: Our inaugural Pop-Up Market was a HUGE success! Thank you to everyone who came out! It was quite the turnout. Our vendors sold copious amounts of amazingness and the community came out in full force to support the Bozeman Flea and we couldn't be happier with the results. Connections were made, hands were shook, hugs were given, and smiles were all around!!!
We were truly blown away by the sheer volume of shoppers, and also all of the wonderful feedback we received. Feedback is crucial! We want to know how you heard about us, what's is working, and so on. Most importantly we want to know YOU. We met so many fantastic makers, collectors, and enthusiasts and those connections translate into collaborations and friendship down the line, so please ask questions and find out how you can get involved. We want the community to benefit as much as possible from our markets, and the best way to ensure your fantastic ideas are heard and acted upon is to hop over to our GET INVOLVED page and find out what your role can be.
We are always looking for talented and passionate people to fill vendor slots, and join us behind the scenes as a committee member. Our committee members are an amazing resource and we cherish them immeasurably. A very special shout out and thank you to CM Angela Yonke, who took all of these fantastic photos!!
As I write this, and consequently relive the Pop-Up's success, I am eager to get working on the next Pop-Up Market. We don't have many details ready for you yet but it's going to be fantastic. If you are interested in becoming a vendor please APPLY! We want to keep things fresh and new and at this point that means meeting and working with as many creative impassioned vendors as possible. Participating in a BF Pop-Up Market does not require or reserve you a spot in our summer market, so if you're curious about how this whole operation works the Pop-Up Markets are a wonderful way to get your feet wet and see if this is something you would like to do regularly during our summer markets.
We are currently searching for our next Pop-Up venue so if you have suggestions, ideas, or a space you would like to offer up please let us know. We are so thankful to The Architects Wife for hosting us! After Saturday's turnout we have realized partnering with an emerging business that will benefit from the marketing, exposure, and PR we provide is an excellent perk of the Pop-Up Market. We love the adventurous entrepreneurs that make Bozeman so special, and helping those businesses reach a new audience is a service we are happy to offer. Thank you again to The Architects Wife for helping us set the tone for all future markets. We've got our work cut out for us finding a venue that can top, or even live up to the grandeur of that historic building, and all of the phenomenal wares found within!
I suppose that's all for now. Keep checking in with us and don't forget to follow us on Instagram and like us on Facebook where we will be sure and keep you posted as details regarding our next market are made available.
