I’ve been so excited to have the Pop-Up Gallery and Creators Market running! When I bought This building, I envisioned what it would look like. This is something entirely different. I never imagined I would have so many opportunities to help others with this space. Everything for sale in this market will impact the creator and the consumer. We all hear about how we should shop locally because it matters more. It’s hard to always see how that phrase actually helps others. For every item bought from us during this market, 80% of that sale goes back to the artist. When we help them sell one of their works, it will directly impact them. I wish I could express the feeling of knowing how much I can facilitate for my community just by having a space and being willing to manage it. I have been given the gift of being able to live my life in a way that allows me to serve others. As a way of giving back to the community members who are coming in to help support us, we will have a drawing for a $25 gift card to Gene’s Heartland Food in Minneapolis, KS. If you come into the market, you can fill out a card, and we will draw the winner on our last day of December 31st.
Happy Holidays! -Karen
