Grassroots meeting – Craft Show Vending A to Z

Grassroots Business Association

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.

    Is there any chance that you might be able to share the handouts or post sessions on YouTube for those that would love to attend, but happen to live on the East Coast? The Grassroots meetings seem so wonderfully helpful but I’ve not found anything similar, especially where we live.

    Thank you!

    Natalie – Sorry, we’re just not set up for video or audio for tomorrow night, though it’s something we’re keeping in mind. See also, cost/time.

    However, we have been keeping notes from all of our meetings so far, and you can find them in the Notes section of the Grassroots website.

    Completely understood about cost/time of video and such, but do know you have many folks outside your area interested in what you are doing. Take it as a compliment – you’re presenting yourselves with a strong voice. I would DEFINITELY be involved if I lived in Seattle. You guys seem pro-active, organized, collaborative and fun!
