Conn Hipsters? Say It Isn’t So
We here at The ‘Cac are all about getting beyond stereotypes. That’s why I was shocked when I found out that two soon-to-be-wed Portland flea market cultivators are former New London kids.
Erin Kiley and Nathaniel Baldwin’s ‘Flea-for-All’ is a curated indoor market in Portland, ME. Every weekend, vendors pay $30 a day to connect with customers and peddle their wares in a two-story former furniture showroom. Putting their lib arts charm to the test, the couple were successful in urging the city to ease flea market licensing requirements before they even opened.
The flea market “serves as an important bridge for young artists and entrepreneurs looking to get their wares out there without taking on the financial burden of a brick-and-mortar storefront or relying on Internet sales,” according to Mainebiz.
The talented couple handles all promotions, PR, and branding.
