Shops, Shops, and More Shops!

The Blossom Block Valentine’s Day Pop Up Shop was a great success. We had a wonderful time hanging out with friends, old and new. Over $1000 was put into our local economy by purchasing items by local artists. And I’m sure many Valentine’s days were made when loved ones opened their beautiful gifts that were carefully chosen from the wonderful items we had at the shop.

Here are some pictures from the fun.


We even had live music!!

I almost forgot!

In all the excitement of planning the next pop up I almost forgot to tell you how the last one went!

The Holiday Pop Up was a wonderful success!!

The facts: The shop produced over $3000 in profits for local artists and hundreds of people were brought in to a shop that was formerly vacant.

The anecdotes: Community members were able to enjoy a new space. Artists were able to show off their talents. Many people were able to learn about the exciting plans for the building. Neighbors could be seen meeting new people, chatting, and enjoying a cup of hot cider.

Thank you again to all that came in and enjoyed the shop! Please stop by again!
