WHY DID YOU CANCEL THIS YEARS PHYSICAL MARKET ?
The Creators Collective Makers Market is known for being an event, not just a market. With over 200 stalls and around 5,000 patrons that visit, it's a day out for everyone. Unfortunately, with the current Social Distancing and Crowd Restrictions, that are predicted to last for some time, we are unable to hold the event that we are known for.
In the current climate, the committee could not guarantee the safety of all stallholders and patrons, and this is not something we gamble with.
This event takes months to plan, and logistically is not something that is easily rescheduled or cancelled.
For these reasons, we have decided not to move forward with any events until the Pandemic has subsided, and we are able to confidently hold the event that we are known for.
We are hoping to have another physical event in June 2021 - stay tuned to details.
WHEN IS THE NEXT MARKET?
We are hosting a Virtual Marketplace,
that will be open from Early November through to mid-December.
HOW WILL THE MARKET WORK?
Once we have received application to take part in the Virtual Marketplace, we will create a the marketplace here on our website. We will list all of the business participating, with links to their online shops or socials, depending how they trade. Customers will have access to a huge range of businesses and can browse the sites at their leisure.
IS THERE FEE TO REGISTER A BUSINESS FOR THE MARKETPLACE?
As we are a not-for profit, we will be asking for a small fee from each business to participate. This will help to cover the administration and advertising costs involved.
And true to form, we will also be donating a portion of the fees to a not-for-profit, Gippsland-based organisation (details coming soon!)
WILL THERE BE SPECIAL PROMOTIONS?
Some stores, but not all, will have special promotions running just for TCC Customers, so keep your eyes peeled for the specials.
HOW DO I GET IN CONTACT WITH A PARTICULAR STORE?
The Creators Collective are only hosting the marketplace, each business / stall will be running their business like normal, through their online store or social media. Any questions about a particular store will need to be made directly to the business through their pages.
