Night Market at LD Shoppe
We first started pondering the idea of hosting some type of event not long after we opened. We toyed around with various event ideas. It wasn’t until after linking with vendors for our Canadian Corner that we quickly came to the idea of a market style event. We love to frequent the Etsy market, 613 flea market and any event showcasing local talent and voila the Night Market was born!
We had such a wonderful time at our first Night Market event that we hosted back in May. It was full of people sipping, shopping, lounging, and really just enjoying themselves. It turned into everything that we were hoping for and more! Before the night was over we were already talking about the next one. We thought two months would give us ample time to plan and coordinate. At the time I was almost wondering if it was too far away, but it gave us just enough time to squeeze in all that we needed to get organized!
The intent behind the Night Market was to bring awareness to the shop local movement and show love to the amazing small businesses and vendors in Ottawa. Here’s the list of incredible vendors that we recruited to pop up in the shoppe for our Summer Night Market.
As the clock struck 6 on the night of the event we were just putting together the finishing touches and people were already lining up to come in. We had another wonderful list of vendors for round two and couldn’t be more thrilled with how the evening went.
We’re now gearing up for our Mini Market that we’ll be hosting on August 24th which we are beyond excited for. We’re opening our doors and welcoming a plethora of adorable goodies for your little ones!
Our daytime Mini Market will be filled with incredible Ottawa based vendors that offer only the most precious products for your family from accessories, clothing, dolls and toys to baby safe skincare products and art. We’ll have a little bit of everything!
This new event stemmed from an eagerness to launch a kids line - which we will be doing very shortly! Eeeeee! We are so excited for this new endeavour at LD Shoppe. So stay tuned for that as well as our amazing vendor list for the Mini Market. We can’t wait to introduce the faces behind the very very VERY cute products that we’ll have in store on Saturday, August 24th.
