HYD is so pleased to introduce to you our artists and craftsmen joining us on Sunday. Some are linked to their web pages, some don't have pages. You'll want to meet them all.
It's been a couple of weeks since HYD's first ever pop-up market & we are still a little high from the experience. Caroline & I were overwhelmed by the positive response from our shoppers as well as our vendors. The community support from our Knoxville family was tremendous.
We are excited to say that with our 10% of profits from the sale, HYD & the vendors donated over $200 to Habitat for Humanity of Knoxville.
HYD would also like to thank KBrew for providing their delicious coffee to our guests throughout the day.
Lastly, we wanted to show off some of the shots of the day that our dear friend, Katie Norrell took. HYD was overjoyed to watch all the hugs, compliments & conversations throughout the day of the market. We are looking forward to the next one, whenever it "pops-up!"
If you didn't make it out and are interested in purchasing any of these fine goods, let us know and we will get you in touch with the maker.
We had over 200 people come through our market and our vendors sold over $2,000 worth of goods. We had a blast seeing old friends and making new ones. If you took pictures at the market we would love to see them.
Look for these signs (above) on Saturday! This Saturday, November 8th at 1721 Coker Ave. is Help You Dwell's first ever pop up market and we are so excited! Please come out and support local Knoxville artists and craftsmen along with Habitat for Humanity (10% of profits).
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Habitat, the Knoxville chapter has been up and running since 1985. 475 homes have been built through the organization in our city for people who find themselves unable to afford typical housing. Habitat builds homes using volunteers and home buyers, sells them at no profit, and the homes are financed with a 25-30 year, 0% interest mortgage. Habitat makes home ownership an option for people who have fallen on hard times, or who need a "hand up, not a hand out". The home owners are heavily involved in the building of their homes and pay a regular mortgage like anyone else. Check out the website to learn more about Habitat for Humanity and how to get involved in Knoxville.
Some of our vendors are set up to accept credit/debit transactions but not all of them so make sure to bring cash. We can direct you to a close ATM if needed :)
Can't wait to see you all and please share our flyer on Facebook or your website!
