What are Lowcountry Made Events?
Lowcountry Made began creating popup markets during the pandemic to provide a safe platform for makers to engage with shoppers. What we didn’t anticipate was the immensely positive response from our community. Our neighborhoods turned out and we saw a widespread desire to shop local, shop handmade, meet the maker, and be a part of the community.
Since then we have facilitated over 40 artisan markets around the Lowcountry. We strive to promote all qualifying makers as well as rotate vendors each month to keep things fresh.
Several of our popup locations are hosted at local businesses like Burnt Church Distillery, Southern Barrel Brewing, Lot 9 Brewing and private communities like Haig Point. Our monthly markets are located at city and town parks for consistency.
Our vendors are the best around!
To be considered we require a few things...
Are you a good fit?
Strong Brand Identity
In today’s anonymous digital world, a brand identity is more important than ever. We’re looking for vendors who have a logo, some collateral and a fabulous booth set-up. We’re looking for vendors whose brands have a visually consistent presence throughout their print and digital materials.
Attention To Detail
We are looking for high-quality vendors who have reputable products or services. We’re looking for brands with an eye for detail from packaging design to product displays and from booths to customer service. We have built a following of potential customers who trust our recommendations for locally sourced high-quality, handcrafted products.
You don’t need a lot of sales experience to make the most of Lowcountry Made’s Pop-Up events. However, we’re looking for vendors who have a variety in their inventory that will keep potential customers interested and keep them shopping. To compete with other area events, Lowcountry Made’s Pop-Ups need to stand out from the rest.
Lowcountry Made’s Pop-Up events are about creating community and appreciation for local makers, artists and artisans. Many of our shoppers expect some level of engagement or conversation during the Pop-Up events. They might want to know the story behind your brand. We expect you to be engaging and present at your booth.
The sole purpose of Lowcountry Made events is to provide creative brands the platform to sell their wares to the local community. We seek brands with strong identities, attention to detail from the product to the packaging and display, creative ability, and vendors with strong positive presence at the markets and online.
Lowcountry Made artisan markets and other events are held in the Lowcountry from Savannah, to Bluffton and from Hilton Head to Beaufort. They are hosted by local breweries/distilleries, boutiques and businesses and held in parking lots, park and courtyards.
Quality handcrafted local artists and artisans are given priority. Each location differs and we strive to continuously seek new brands.
Multi-level marketing companies like Norwex, Mary Kay, etc. are not permitted.
It is with great pride that I can say our markets are well attended and because of that most of our markets have a waitlist. Especially the recurring series including the Bluffton Artisan Market.
