By the way, Independence Park is a beautiful park in a scenic part of Charlotte. Lots of foot traffic AND we will provide lots of promoting beforehand.
We look forward to having people from fellow street teams apply to be part of our show. Plus, others that are NOT part of Etsy are encouraged to apply!
