What is this?
As a result of COVID-19, vendors are seeing a huge economic impact- events and gatherings are being cancelled, and confidence whithers as things look to get worse before they get better.
As consumers, you may not realize the depth of this impact on your local economy. Many of the small businesses you have come to know and appreciate are just a couple people whose wellbeing is funded by your patronage at public events.
As measures for social distancing become common and necessary, that lack of patronage will result in the razor-thin margins that many companies rely disappearing entirely.
After this is over, the economic landscape of Wisconsin may forever be altered in ways we have yet to realize.
In a bid to limit this disaster for these people and give consumers access to products that they still want, I am asking us to come together- sell and buy goods from the comfort and safety of your home/studio/office!
how do i buy?
As a customer, interaction for you will be fairly simple- below this intro, our Instagram feed will display posts from makers all over the state, showing all the wonderful items they want to show you.
You can also view even more posts on the Facebook event.
If you see something you like, all you have to do is click through to their profile, or search for their web site- we will try to make this as easy as possible for you.
We will all try to show you as much variety as possible and provide as much info as we can while being breif- we all love what we do so much, it can be hard to get to the point sometimes.
If you see something someone else might like, please help us all out by sharing if on social media, and spreading the word about this awesome event.
Lastly, keep an eye out- some people will offer special perks like local delivery, sales, customization or other features that might not normally be available!
how do I sell?
As a vendor, please follow these rules:
1) To be featured on the IG feed, tag MMM in your post- I will re-post it into our feed shortly.
2) While you can tag MMM as much as you like, you will be re-posted once per day- this is to be fair to everyone else trying to get people's attention.
3) you are welcome to share your product posts on Facebook directly into the event- if you're not sure how, it's easy to look up and easy to do.
4) Please don't abuse your ability to post into the event- we want to be as fair as possible- limit your post sharing to one per day
on Facebook, please include links to your shop page to make it easier for customers to find you and your products.
Cost/Promotion: this event is free, but it has a small budget. Message me if you're interested in donating.
