Call for Artists/Artisans/Crafters/Makers

Every third Thursday, May 16 through August 15, Perk Plaza at Chester Commons will host a chance for downtown workers and residents to unwind with friends and co-workers while enjoying delicious food from food trucks, a beer garden and live entertainment from 5-8pm. There will also be space for up to 4 handmade sellers to promote and sell their work. Set-up for these events will begin at 3:30pm and sellers will need to stay until the end of the events at 8pm. Sellers will need to provide their own tables, chairs, tents/canopies, and any other desired display equipment. The preferred merchandise will be items mostly in the under $35 range. Jewelry, accessories, t-shirts, and other easy-to-carry items sell better at these events. Historically, sales for the handmade sellers have not been strong, but, since there is no fee to participate and the events are relatively short, this can be a great opportunity for the right seller to get their name out there or get their feet wet in the Market pool, so to speak.

If you are interested in being a handmade seller at a Pop-Up Party, please contact Lisa Krieger at the Downtown Cleveland Alliance by emailing her (no calls please) at Lkrieger@dcacleveland.net. Tell her about your work and which date or dates you are available. Dates are May 16, June 20, July 18, and August 15. She will curate the dates partly by who requests space first while also ensuring a variety of work at each event.
