En Em Art Space Pop-Up Shop: A Few of My Favorite Things

EN EM Art Space is currently looking for local artisans to sell their functional art at our temporary holiday pop-up shop from December 9, 2015 - January 30, 2016.

What is a Pop-Up Shop?

A pop-up shop is a temporary retail venue. 

En Em Art Space

En Em Art Space is a gallery located on 1714 Broadway in Sacramento. We typically have monthly art exhibits but we have decided to use the space for a temporary pop-up shop from December 9, 2015 - January 30, 2016. We are passionate about supporting local artists and makers. Therefore, the shop will only feature functional art from local artisans. Like you!


Since En Em has a small staff we need some vendors to volunteer for two, 3-hour shifts for the duration of the shop. Those vendors will receive 70% of their total profits and the gallery will receive 30%. 

However, we don’t want to limit the shop to only those vendors who can volunteer. Vendors who are unable to volunteer will receive 50% of the profits and the gallery will receive the other 50%. 


In addition to having an additional (physical) venue to sell your merchandise for the months of December and January, your participation at the En Em Pop-Up Shop will give you the opportunity to advertise your products, meet fellow art lovers, artists, and makers, and network with community members. En Em Art Space will hold a Second Saturday reception on December 12 from 6-9. We may also hold events throughout the duration of the shop to attract more visitors.  


All products must be dropped off at the gallery by December 6, 2015. We can not accept mailed products for the pop-up shop. En Em will contact you about drop-off times by the last week of November. Please include a printed price list with your inventory drop-off. (Let us know if you’d like help pricing items.) En Em encourages vendors to attach tags or have business cards available to accompany merchandise sales.  


All unsold merchandise and profits will be available for pick-up from En Em once the Pop-Up Shop has closed at the end of January. 

Pick-up dates and times are TBA. 

If you are interested in participating please email your name, a short (2-5 sentences) professional biography/business description (if you have one), and 2-3 images of your products to
