Scout's Marketplace has grown form the vendor market on the grounds of Quinn's Mercantile to a curated Event of artists, makers and entrepreneurs from across the country!
For the past two years, on the property of Quinn's Mercantile, we've had a seasonal Marketplace that coincided with the first day of the downtown Farmers Market. At this one day event, we would invite local artists and small businesses to sell their wares and both our customers and these small businesses would benefit. Our customers would get to shop and buy items that they may not have come across before, and these makers had a chance to get in front of my customer base. Many times, these small businesses aren't in a place to own a brick and mortar shop, so doing markets like these are great opportunities.
For Quinn's Mercantile, our outdoor space was limited by the number of vendors we could have, and when we decided to grow this Marketplace, we wanted to be able to offer something great in our city. We decided that we would have an application process drawing talented artists, ultimately curating our registrants. We've worked hard at having a wide variety of businesses at Scout's Marketplace, and this impressive Event will be like nothing the 'Boro has seen.
Scout's Marketplace has also attracted great sponsorship from Angel Pardue Photography, Tangerine Salon and Spa, Rutherford County CVB, Be Mixed and more. These businesses realize the impact that this Event is bringing to our city. We're excited to work with them to present this Marketplace.
