Pop Up Shop #2 was another great success. We felt like this one was going to be the true test. Last time, we thrived off of friends and family (which was amazing buuuttt not sustainable when it comes to opening a store). We were anxious to see if anyone would really show up without having a zillion family members in town and friends popping in to support us every few hours.
We were beyond pleasantly surprised with the amount of new faces we saw! I would say about 90% of our customers were people that saw us advertised in the Columbus Underground, the Daily Growler or just happened to walk by. That was HUGE for us & we were psyched. We still had some amazing friends & fam pop in (thanks guys!!!! we love you!) but at the end of the weekend, we felt really proud of ourselves & excited for what the future holds.
Speaking of the future- my girl Ally is about to pop out her baby boy ANY DAY NOW (omg I can't wait) so we will be taking a short break from Pop Ups for now. We will be concentrating on putting together an online shop & attempting to do a Flea Market or two. Have no fear though, we will be back and ready to get our selling on in the early Spring! Be sure to keep up with the blog and our instagram (@trodelshop) for updates.
