The next Grassroots meeting is tomorrow, Wed. May 20th, and the topic is Craft Show Vending A to Z with Moxie who is President and Director of Vendor Relations for Urban Craft Uprising and sells her own good at Made by Moxie, and Kristen Rask who owns the shop and gallery Schmancy and does the Plush You! show each year.
The response for this meeting was so big that we cannot fit into our usual meeting space so please note the meeting has been moved to the Richard Hugo House, not too far away from our usual spot at Vermillion.
The unanticipated change of venue came with needing to pay for the meeting space so, pretty please, if you could come with a donation to help us cover costs for the meeting space and the handout for the meeting we, the Grassroots people, would deeply appreciate it. We are of course thrilled that the group has grown, and I for one am pleased as punch that we are big enough to fill such a cool place. As much as I’d like to be able to say we, the organizers, have no trouble covering costs for the group, the reality is that we are ourselves small business people and independent shop owners and we’re feeling the pinch from the unexpected expense. So, contributions to help out will be met with gleeful appreciation.
