Hello All!

Just a reminder about POPtoberfair, the combination record swap, comics/zine and crafts fair that Indie Craftstravaganzaa is curating in conjunction with Athens POPfest on October 15th. We are super excited to be a part of this show at the Classic Center and we think the turnout is going to be fantastic!
In case you didn't know:
  • POPFest has been happening since 2004 and draws over 5,000 music + indie culture lovers from all over the world to Athens, Ga.
  • POPFest has several major sponsors, which means tons of ads and billboards--an important sponsor is our local paper, the Banner-Herald, which distributes the shows program to over 15,000 people in their weekend edition. There will be a two page center spread about POPtoberfair in this program highlighting our portion of this multi-day event--yay for us!
  • The weekend of POPtoberfair the Classic Center is completely booked with other conventions, including a nurse's convention in the hall next to ours (read: tons of female shoppers on site!)
  • We are joining forces with 2 other established local events that draw their own crowd of folks, and we think there's going to be lots of overlap between all of the shoppers

To summarize, this show is only $50 to participate, you are provided an 8 by 8 table, and the deadline to apply is September 24th. We are allowing a wider range of wares than we ordinarily do at Craftstravaganzaa, so if you have any questions, just ask! And yes, you may share a table.  This is a great opportunity for first-timers or less experienced vendors to take part in what is sure to be a really fun event.  Since this is our first time out with this particular show, we are keeping it simple: just send your name and a description of what you do, along with a few pics of your work and payment, to this email address:

Hope to hear from you soon!!
