The Downtown Statesboro Development Authority and local entrepreneurs host the first Downtown Statesboro Spring Pop-Up Market, a trunk show for downtown boutiques and online-boutiques, April 30th from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
On Saturday, downtown boutiques and several Georgia Southern students will join together to host a big Spring Pop-Up Market on the Courthouse lawn in downtown Statesboro. Kaylyn Tabor, owner of Ivey & Company and Peyton Yarbrough, owner of Posh Boutique, came up with this sale, as a creative way to help boost business downtown. There will be clothing, shoes, accessories and gifts, and a variety of items perfect for graduation and Mother’s Day.
“We have great downtown boutiques like Posh Boutique, Jaxe + Grace, Stella, Madame Couture, Frills, Sola Fide, Material Girl, Miracles Children’s Boutique and we want to invite everyone to shop in the heart of downtown. Retail stores will have specials and discounts like
L.A. Waters Furniture no tax sale. Additionally, this event provides student entrepreneurs that already have an on-line shop, the opportunity to display and sell their products in person. We hope they will expand their business and move into a brick and mortar location.” said Elena McLendon, Manager for Main Street Statesboro.
The event will also celebrate World Tai Chi Day from 9:30am-12 p.m. Dr. Li from Georgia Southern University will have a Tai Chi demonstration in front of the Courthouse steps.
Food will also be available for purchase by a variety of local food trucks. Party Harbor will provide a free bouncy for the children to enjoy. Chi Omega at Georgia Southern will have a children’s corner with activities to entertain the little ones while adults shop.
