Become a Vendor
NOVEMBER - DECEMBER
A MINNESOTA HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE
like you’ve never seen before
We’re creating a mini winter wonderland with interactive, Instagram-worthy vignettes, interspersed with goods from local makers. Imagine a modern-day version of the by-gone downtown Minneapolis Dayton’s 8th Floor holiday display.
More of an experience center than a retail store, this pop-up will feature regular activations, such that on any given day guests may have the opportunity to meet and take pictures with Santa, make sustainable gift wrap, enjoy an artisanal hot chocolate bar, decorate cookies, or make holiday centerpieces.
Our makers are an integral part of this, and each participating vendor will be invited to do at least one work-shop or make-and-take event with shoppers.
