Event description
Vintage, outdoor, mini market to support local curators & artists. NEW SANTA CRUZ LOCATION WHAA! Mask up, max cap + social distance enforced

About this Event

The So-So Market is a COVID-19 baby, founded & Hosted by Indigo Vintage Cooperative. Outdoor, 'mini' markets are a great alternative to traditional indoor retail, they allow for fresh, day-of inventory that has not come into contact with numerous parties over several days/weeks, air circulation from being outdoors, and more space to social distance.

Our community's bigger markets like Alameda + Rose Bowl are canceled, so we thought we'd offer a small-scale, more curated version for our local vintage curators and artists/makers. What makes So-So special is the ability to find amazing, unique, sustainable items, interact with the small business you are directly supporting, and be surrounded by a community of creative, fashionable, COOL ppl. We differ from an upscale market, simply because we keep it SO-SO, every vendor who is invited to sell with us is asked to bring DEALS in addition to their fab curations.

A little bit about your host, Indigo Vintage Cooperative:

We started in 2018 on Telegraph Ave in Berkeley CA. We have a non-traditional retail method that is not only sustainable, but emphasizes community and small business. Our brick-and-mortar shops are open 7 days a week and house over 50+ local vendors over three locations: Berkeley, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz.

We share resources as a cooperative, and ALL of our items are VINTAGE, re-cycled, small-batch, local, or small businesses. We are womxn-owned and operated, our vendors are a diverse pool from all backgrounds. Our shops are all on iconic streets in their Bay Area cities- which means our rent + operations cost is high. We know our shop prices can be higher and less affordable options, so we decided to start So-So Market to make our offerings accessible to everyone. Our vendors often bring huge markdowns and new sales items starting at $5. We believe fashionable, sustainable, vintage items should be available for everyone! So come get yours at the So-So Market <3
