Vendors need to drop off their product at Trade & Lore between these times*:

WEDNESDAY, July 26 | 10AM-1PM
THURSDAY, July 27 | 3-6PM

Make sure your items are packaged in labeled boxes or bins and don’t forget your inventory list.

*If this drop-off time does not work, email us ASAP to arrange another drop-off time.


This is the view of Wall Street as you turn down this one-way street. Trade & Lore is located at the top left of this image - the first brick building, on the corner. Across the street is one 30-min loading space and a fire lane - that's where you can temporarily "park" your car to unload.

Or you can park in the Wall Street parking garage - access on Otis. It's free for the first hour, then $1.25 for each hour after that. Take the elevator to the first floor/Wall St - Trade & Lore is nearby.

We will be sitting outside during these designated times.



Vendors can pick up their remaining inventory at Trade & Lore:


As the pop up winds down, we will do our best to round up your inventory. But ultimately you will be responsible for packing up your inventory. If you can not be present to collect your inventory please make arrangements for somebody else to do so.



For those who are shipping your inventory, please have items sent to the following address on or before Monday, July 24th:

Stephanie Mergelsberg
164 Hillside Street, Apt 6
Asheville, NC 28801


For this 9-day Pop Up Shop, vendors pay a fee of $50 + 25% of sales.

We have a limited number of available work trade opportunities. We let those interested know about those opportunities and details asap.

All vendors checks for their final earnings will be mailed on or before Monday, August 14th along with a simple sales summary of items sold. 

Sales tax will be collected and paid by us for all the items sold.


We understand stuff comes up, so for those who decide not participate, we will refund your fees until Monday, July 17th. After that date, fees are non-refundable.


We will be using all of our social media outlets (Instagram, Pinterest, Blog, Website, and Facebook) to feature vendors. Please make sure you send high quality photos when you apply, so that we may pull from these. Each maker will receive a media kit that we encourage you to use on social media.

We will release announcements to the press, publish the event on online and print calendars, do extensive social media advertising, as well as place posters and postcards all around Asheville leading up to the event.


We will do everything within our power to prevent theft of products and displays, but we cannot guarantee that items will not go missing or get broken. Our team will make every effort to prevent any incidents. However we cannot be held responsible if theft or damage does occur.


If you or someone you know are interested in volunteering for Aloha Pop, please send us an email at eastwestpopupshop@gmail.com. As a volunteer you will help with flyering, set up, clean up, and helping vendors throughout the Pop Up Shop. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and have a hands-on role with East West Pop Up Shop Events.
