What makes Momma Collective Markets different from other markets?
The Momma Collective brings its East-coast sociable vibe to the laid-back West coast lifestyle, inviting guests to gather and support local (and enjoy wicked tunes, of course!). It's a warm, welcoming and festive showcase of awesome business owners from the Okanagan community.
What can shoppers expect to find at your upcoming event?
An eclectic mix of over 60 handcrafting vendors and small, local businesses will be at this year's Holiday Fair in Kelowna.
We know there are tons of great vendors attending the Annual Momma Collective Holiday Market but can you choose 3 to tell us more about?
Sparky Jones Accessories: unique, super funky hats.
Nooks: THE handmade footwear for the minis in your life.
Brok Boys: FINALLY, hip, cozy clothes for my little men.
The Momma Collective has put on several great events; which elements do you think make them so successful?
Our vendors! Our shoppers! Our event location! Add in a wicked canteen and great tunes and we have a well-loved and anticipated yearly event.
You've seen a lot of vendors too; what's consistent in handmade products that stand out and draw a crowd?
THE CRAFTER. A passionate, creative soul easily sells what they love; and keeps supporters like me coming back for more.
What about vendor spaces; what tips do you have for vendors to create an attractive display?
Unique props, varying levels for height, and an effort to create an invitation to linger and explore.
Vendor Booths: Lori Brown Photography & Splat & Co
