As most of you know, IFC held its first ever Pop-up shop on May 6 at the Circle City Industrial Complex. While it cannot be hailed as a huge success, it was, nonetheless an important learning experience for our organization AND we even sold some stuff! Pop-up shops are nothing new in bigger markets and around the world, but it’s safe to say that the Midwest and Indianapolis in particular are still playing catch up in this particular area of retail.
Our first pop-up showcased IFC members including Nikki Blaine – who was our gracious host as well, R.Lynda Couture, Picnic, Blue Eyes and Bare Feet, Antonio Fermin, Dressed Her Days Vintage, Stitch Sisters, Faith Blackwell, Atelie, House of 5th and Cheeky Couture.
Currently, we are refining our vision of what the IFC pop-up should look like and how it should function to help us meet our organizational goals even better. We think that partnering with local boutiques and retailers is the next evolution. Stay tuned!
A big thank you to CCIC & Nikki Blaine Couture for hosting us!
