Hey y’all! If you follow us on Instagram (@evanandkatelyn) or you’ve been within 20 feet of us recently, you probably know that we had our first pop up shop at West Elm yesterday – and it went really well!
We’re no strangers to the maker world (we’ve been DIYing and tinkering for years now), but actually selling the things we make is a whole different ballgame.
We’ve learned SO much about how all this stuff goes down that we think our brains might overflow and we want to share – but at the same time, we don’t want to saturate the blog with posts about products and pop ups because that’s not why y’all are here. Plus heck we don’t even know where all this product stuff is going yet. But we DO know that our readers are crafty, creative people who may have at some point thought “maybe I could sell the stuff I make?”
So if you guys are interested, we could do a post about how the whole thing went down and what we’ve learned even from just ONE pop up shop. We only started this adventure six weeks ago, and since then we’ve spent our nights and weekends creating a new logo and business cards, revamping our site, making signage for the event, figuring out how to price things, starting an online store, building our own displays, registering with the state to collect sales tax, dealing with all the logistics of setting up and breaking down a shop… Oh yeah, and building the products haha.
There’s a lot we can cover, so let us know if this is something y’all want to know more about!
