Announcement: Unglued Pop-Up Coming Soon
The holidays are coming a little early this year, and we have quite the gift for you… We are so excited to announce that an Unglued Pop-Up Shop will be opening soon! Scroll on to read about all about this local shop, and what to expect from the pop up from their founder, Ashley!
Surprise! As a way to continually bring our visitors what’s new & now, we are excited to announce that an Unglued Pop-Up shop will be opening November 14th, through Valentine’s Day! Not familiar with Unglued? Here’s what they’re all about:
Unglued grew out of a small group of friends working 9-5 jobs and meeting up late at night to sew and be creative. As some started to sell their new-found creativity online and at traditional craft fairs, and after a crazy road trip to Des Moines, we were inspired to grow this creative community in whatever ways we could here in Fargo, ND! Along the way we met others doing amazing work but not being crazy successful at traditional fairs and venues. In a couple months we pulled together Fargo’s first-ever indie (“modern”) craft fair – Unglued: Craft Fest – in 2011 and it was a smashing success.
Our crafters loved having an audience of like-minded creatives and handmade enthusiasts pulled together in one sweet day and the community bought the heck out of this fresh, new take on crafting. Part of the feedback we received was to do multiple fairs a year or open a shop representing these creative wares made by local and regional artisans. We considered the options and decided we would host Unglued: Craft Fest annually to be one big incredible day and to try out a brick and mortar shop downtown Fargo as a pop up in the winter of 2011.
In August 2012 we went for it and opened up a permanent Unglued: Market downtown Fargo. We currently host over 300 local and regional artists with about 10% further throughout the US to add great variety.”
About the Unglued Pop-Up Shop @ West Acres
We are so excited to bring Unglued and local makers into the West Acres Mall! It is an incredible and unique opportunity to get locally made products in the mall especially for holiday shopping!
At Unglued we are ridiculously excited for the holidays each year and all the joy and fun surrounding them – to have the opportunity to bring what we do downtown into the beautiful West Acres Mall during this time of year is icing on the cake!
We’ll have about 45 makers from within 100 miles represented at our mall pop up shop and also include occasional events, too, to get mall shoppers inspired during the most wonderful time of the year. The pop up will be run by our Unglued crew and some of our talented makers so people can stop by to meet the person who made their gift as well!
To say we are thrilled to bring what we do through Unglued to West Acres Mall is an understatement! The opportunity to showcase locally made gifts in such a busy and beautiful shopping venue is really going to not only propel our maker’s creative businesses but also give more people in our community a chance to conveniently shop local in the mall and buy creative gifts. A win for everyone!”
Look for the Unglued Pop-Up starting November 14th, near Center Court!
