Taking Applications for Downtown Pop-Up Party

We have room for a couple more vendors at the Downtown Pop-Up Party on March 29th at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, 1-5 pm. These few spots will go quickly so if you are a craft or vintage vendor and you’re interested, jump on it!

Some vendor spaces are inside and some are outside. All will be very visible for this super fun event! Once accepted, vendors will be given the option for inside or outside on a first come, first served basis (we will email you your choices). We will not be offering refunds if the weather is bad.

The application is here. Filling these last few spots will be done on a rolling basis. Meaning, go apply now before it’s too late! The event offers a sneak-peek at some of the pop-up shop tenant who will be located along the streetcar route plus all that the Curb Market has to offer!



Christmas in July


Search “Griswold Christmas Tree” on YouTube if you don’t know the significance of this tree image.

Recently, I visited a small mountain town in NC that had a Christmas Shoppe. To me this is the tell-tale sign that a town is trying to be a tourist attraction. It reminded me of visiting a similar store in Helen, GA as a kid. It was dead of summer, and everyone (myself included!) was f-reaking out about Christmas in July!

At ICE HQ, we’ve spent a lot of time the past two weeks planning for the holiday season. It’s funny to me that my work now involves planning for the holiday season during the hottest part of the year!

We can’t tell you all about our holiday plans just yet because we are nailing down details. I can tell you it’s going to be spectacular. We hope it give you a Clark Griswold Christmas tree moment!
