Veteran pop-up vendor Melanie Wesley shares the experiences and knowledge that have helped her to build a creative career that she loves. Her particular approach blends pragmatic planning and intuitive decision making. Beginning with a simple self-assessment worksheet Melanie will guide you to figure out a first step or a next step. Participants will be provided with an extensive list of resources and ample time for questions and conversation.
In 2007 Melanie Wesley sold her first handmade items at a pop-up market in Winnipeg. Since that first sale, Melanie has participated in more than 80 pop-up events over 13 years. Her ability to evolve and adapt has kept her a strong participant in Winnipeg’s vibrant pop-up scene, including a pop-up she and fellow artists ran successfully for 10 years out of their own studios.
