Our makers love The Strawberry Swing experience!

“Thank you so much for all you have done for us makers.  I know it must have been a very daunting task to find ways to have in-person events while keeping everyone safe during the pandemic.  Your passion, ingenuity, and countless hours of hard work have not gone unnoticed.  The Saturday pop-ups and markets provided me some normalcy to this year and gave me renewed purpose.  I can’t wait to swing again!”

“I sold all but two of my originals. I was thoroughly impressed with how many people came out and during cold weather! Good job!! The other makers were incredibly nice and all the helpers were very sweet. The social media plugs brought me many new followers and a couple of commissions!! Great event. Thanks so much!! “

“Great, fun, exciting, and exhilarating holiday market. This was my first Holiday Market with Swing and I enjoyed every minute of it. I was able to sell almost all my inventory & meet new makers and friends.  The event was well organized and the helpers were great. I heard many good comments from the attendees. They liked the outdoor event & there were compliments about the maker variety. Thanks for a great event.”

First-time makers are welcome! We do ask for photos of booth displays in our applications so we encourage first-time makers to create a test-run display inside or outside of their home so we know what your mini-store aka your booth will look like!
