Set up your popup sale at Dear Diary Coffeehouse

Dear Diary seeks vendors for pop-up shops

Would you like to set up your popup shop at Dear Diary Coffeehouse? We are looking for vegan cottage bakers, crafters, makers… all enterprising creatives are welcome to register for a spot!

Why set up shop at Dear Diary?

A one-day pop-up at Dear Diary Coffeehouse creates an opportunity to earn new customers online through in-person and social media marketing. The Chestnut neighborhood has a lot of people, but no farmers markets or flea markets. So far, most of our vendors have experienced good sales, and said they would definitely have their pop-up at Dear Diary Coffeehouse again. We love partnering with fellow small businesses, and customers love seeing the little guys (like us!) collaborate to do fun things!
