Beautiful setting, well organized, good audience, great sales!
The enthusiasm of the shoppers at this event was outstanding!
[My favorite part was] Um. EVERYTHING!!! I love how curated the event was. Walking thru I could also tell how purposeful you were about placement and I really REALLY appreciated that.
I just wanted to thank everyone involved for putting together this great event. I had an amazing time and sold out of many items. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but now wish I would have signed up for all of your events 😊 Thank you again for all your efforts and for choosing me to participate. It’s clear that the work you all do, supports all of us artists. For that I am extremely grateful.
I love the venue as it’s right on the water and already a super popular place for people in the greater tacoma area to go and shop/eat/walk. I am from this area so I think it makes great sense as a venue.
This was seriously the most well planned, well communicated, well thought out and executed show I’ve been been to. I know it’s not your goal to make others look bad but DANG. Other markets need to take a lesson from you!! I was elated and so excited all dang day. Down to the “remove the duct tape off the floor”. You ladies absolutely killed it and are my hero’s!!! OH. One thing. Packing up in the end-if there were volunteers that could help watch our stuff while we got our cars, that would behave been amazing. The square was packed full of people and I had to pray and then run to my car leaving it all out in the open. I def would have offered to pay someone just to have the peace of mind and know I had someone there watching my stuff while I did that. Just a thought.
The good organization, free parking, easy load in/out, and the customers were SO nice. One of the nicest crowds I’ve seen.
Thanks for hosting this new show! It was a perfect location and opportunity to grow my customer base out of Seattle and NW Washington. I loved the open space, view and access to bathrooms, food and laid back nature.
The location was excellent. I so appreciate that you hosted a show in the Tacoma area!
