Virtual Maker Market in the Bay Area May 2020
Our goal at OF ONE SEA Maker Market is to have a curated selection of quality goods that people are excited to buy for themselves, but also stoked to buy for others. We are looking for a variety of summer/ seasonal items.
Our goal in our Virtual Maker Market is to support small business owners that would normally be selling at local markets or local shops and create a space for them to sell their goods online to a larger audience.
On the customer end of the Virtual Maker Market we want to create a space where you can easily shop from multiple local makers with only one simple transaction. No more hassle of multiple online checkouts and waiting for weeks for your packages to arrive.

Marketing Details: The market is free to all customers/ buyers.
To ensure a successful and busy market we will need all of our vendors’ help, spreading the word to family and friends, posting on all their social media outlets, emailing local customers, promoting in any way that they can.
OF ONE SEA Maker Market will work to market this, but we count on each vendor to do their part in sharing to locals about the event. A media package will be sent to each applicant upon acceptance.
