- event listing on eventbrite here where I can track customer data and email attendees directly to get us repeat customers. I’ll be doing customer emails through that site so make sure you subscribe to see what I’m telling customers about you
- Hand delivered “notices of neighborhood activity” required by city hall for the noise disturbance. I only have to do Yukon street so 10 addresses but I do the blocks all around to about 50 addresses for the free advertising – on July 8
- musicians self promote & their performance draws people into the plaza. You can also borrow their online audience by taking pictures or video and tagging them on social media during their performance and/or if you’re lucky enough to get a photo of them shopping your booth. This can help you extend your social media reach and provides you with easy content for your social media since an intimate concert at a handmade market is fairly unusual. Hashtags and tagging will make your post show up for anyone searching for the musician which can lead to more followers and customers.
- you can do the same with your fellow vendors by the way so keep your eyes open for vendors that compliment your brand. Like candles and bath products, jewellery and fashion, crystals and witchy things, plants and pottery….. etc
- I design graphics for you to share to promote the event featuring your brand
- the facebook lookbook is shared in video format through tiktok and instagram and as series of images on facebook and instagram with your website and product featured ($5 for this service)

Music appreciation is the theme so we’re bringing back the fan favorite musicians from our past events. Vendors should bring their best music inspired products.Christine, your favorite event coordinator
The Helena Gutteridge Plaza is situated by Vancouver City Hall, it used to be the East Building until it was torn down. It’s an open air plaza with a built in Ping Pong table with side walls to protect us from the wind. It is named after an equal rights activist and suffragette Helena Gutteridge and I’m pretty sure we can get up to 60 vendors in the space.
Bring your own tent and table but but for those of you who don’t have a tent or are wanting to share theirs, I’ve created a facebook group for you to find a buddy.
