Vintage Charlotte Summer Market 2014
We started designing and creating a product line in January 2014. From building an artist network, making a marketing strategy, and everything else that comes along with starting a small business we've been up to the gils in work. Having guidance from fellow maker friends in the Charlotte area, we knew we wanted to apply for the Vintage Charlotte Summer Market. So, we applied and were accepted! In the weeks leading up to the market Amy Herman (owner and organizer of Vintage Charlotte) featured us on her 'vendor spotlight' blog and assisted all participating vendors in connecting and networking with each other.
We worked night and day to be fully prepared for our first market .Finally, after weeks of preparing, we scurried into The Fillmore setting up our booth and readying ourselves for the day of shoppers. The day was more than we could have anticipated. In summary, the shoppers were excited about our work, we met new creatives, drank a few Budweiser's, and left exhausted and euphoric. The experience that Amy cultivates is one of the most unique (and awesome) events we've seen in Charlotte.
