North Carolina is fortunate to have multiple handmade happenings and vintage ventures going on from Asheville’s East West Shop on Haywood, Vintage Hendo in Hendersonville, The Vintage Charlotte Market, events in Raleigh hosted by the Handmaidens, Durham’s Rock & Shop Market, and all the way to the coast in Leland at the Seaglass Salvage Market where they host a Tulips & Juleps event to celebrate Mother’s Day and the Kentucky Derby.With the amount of talented artisans in N.C. it is easy to see why this sort of marketplace is appealing to both buyers and sellers. In case you have yet to experience the joy of pop-up shopping, here’s the scoop. Pop-up market organizers work with local makers, artists, and collectors to bring their wares to a unique space to sell for a set amount of time. This is a great way for small companies just starting out to build brand awareness, launch a new product, or test a new consumer market. For buyers, the ability to buy local, often directly from the artist, and enjoy an experience that includes food trucks and local music or the launch of a new craft brew makes for an event not to be missed.
