What is a pop-up event?
A pop-up event is a special gathering where a store or venue hosts a brand and/or business and offers them a space to sell and showcase their products. This is great for brands wanting to expand into a new area. Pop-up events have allowed ramble & company to expand into new markets over the years and have created opportunities to meet new people and potential customers.
What is Ramble Mini Market?
Ramble Mini Market is a venue designed to host 6 pop-ups on a daily, weekend, or monthly basis. Spaces have carefully been designed to help vendors sell and showcase their work and/ or products. The display is provided and Ramble & Co. also offers this space to be staffed so you do not have to be present to sell. As the traffic downtown increases on a weekly basis, we wanted to allow more exposure and accessibility for small businesses.
Who is the space for?
The Ramble Mini Market space has been designed for makers wanting to sell products, artists wanting to showcase work, small businesses, and food/beverage vendors are also welcome. We also have plans to create events around a certain theme, ex: wedding vendors, workshops, make and takes, etc.
How many vendors do you allow?
We allow 6 vendors at a time. We will be offering 3 of those spaces on a month to month basis while the other 3 spaces will be available for a single Saturday or for a weekend (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) rate. Please click here for more information on rates and accommodations.
Do you have to be present to sell at the Ramble Mini Market?
If you book the mini market for one day, you have to be present to accept payments for your products. If you book the mini market for the 3 day rate or a full month, you have the option to have ramble & co. accept your payments and stock your space. We are excited to welcome our space to out of town makers and businesses and we have things set up to sell your items for you. From experience with vendor fairs and pop-up markets, it is very important for quality promotion—whether you are able to attend or if you only ship your items to us.
