200 Mill is a working studio that will host “pop-up shops” the first Friday and Saturday of each month featuring new, one of a kind products from local makers and artists as well as art, fashion accessories and home products. The space is also available to rent for workshops, gallery showings, and private events.
“The pop-up shop concept has been gaining popularity across the country as it allows the creative freedom to reinvent your shop each time you open your doors,” said Dana Poor, owner of Boxtree Designs and co-founder of 200 Mill. “We are excited to bring this kind of creative event to the Historic Marietta Square and love the community that is already being built between makers and the public. We can’t wait to unveil the new artists and products that each month will bring.”
200 Mill is collaborative effort between three Marietta business owners who hope to provide a unique environment that will engage consumers by offering relevant, creative and limited products. Artist Ashley Woodson Bailey, Artist and Copper and Torch owner Lindsay Troutman, and interior designer and owner of Boxtree Designs Dana Poor founded 200 Mill.
The pop-up retail concept has become increasingly popular throughout the country. It provides a venue that is temporary: the space could sell fine arts and gifts one day and host a workspace for creative thinkers the next. These shops often build interest by consumer exposure and engaging their customers.
