I am trying to guage interest in a DIY/Crafty holiday market in Richmond. This will be a market where artist/craftspeople/DIY types can sell there wears - and since it's the holidays, hopefully folks will be buying! I'm thinking similar to the Rock & Shop Market in Raliegh www.rockandshopmarket.com
or the DIY Trunk Show in Chicago www.diytrunkshow.com
. For those who know, I will be contacting Anna V. from the Bizarre Market to see what her plans are (as to NOT step on any toes) and maybe see if we can coordinate events.
So I need to know:
1. would you come to purchase unique, one-of-a-kind gifts for the holidays?
2. if you are an artist, would you sign up to vend? if so, what would be the max you would be willing to pay as an fee? (keep in mind, it would be inside, and there would be cost to cover (space rental, tables, advertising, etc.)
3. based on the people you know, do you think Richmond would support this?
If you know of something already like this, please let me know. I could just be I'm out of the loop!
