Childersburg mother/daughter team Sonya and Hannah Paige will be at the market with items from their shop, Saige’s Boutique.
The Shelby County Mom’s Guide is organizing a “pop-up market” to help small businesses and local entrepreneurial moms reach a new audience.
The Guide will host its new Hello Sunshine Summer Pop-Up Market at the Riverchase Galleria two weekends this summer.
The markets, which will take place June 13-14 and July 11-12, will have space for 40 vendors and take place in the breezeways of the Galleria.
Nia Miller, special events coordinator for Shelby County Mom’s Guide, said the idea for this market came after they had success with similar ones at Christmas and in the spring, and they plan to do one every season.
“We have numerous small business that don’t have store fronts and a few that do,” Miller said. “This event gives them a chance to get out and meet with their customers face to face. It will also help small and local businesses. Most of our vendors are from the Hoover and Shelby County area.”
The market will give vendors an ideal setting to develop their brand and broaden their business. Customers can shop for home decor, handmade items, jewelry, art, clothes and more. Some of the vendors already signed up include Advocare, Bare Bones Cargo, It Works!, Jamberry Nails, LJ’s Boutique, Main Street Chic, Mary Kay, My Sister’s Place, Scentsy, SoChic Boutique, Stylin Pup Pillows, Rodan + Fields, Templeton Photography, Usborne Books and Younique.
Shelby County Mom’s Guide will also use this platform to give back to the community. Savings passes will be sold for $7.50 and will include discounts from the vendors.
“By purchasing the savings pass, you get a lot of different discounts from our vendors, and half the cost of each pass sold will go to Carly’s Clubhouse,” Miller said.
Carly’s Clubhouse is a playground being designed in Pelham for both able-bodied and special needs children.
