Pop Out and Pop Up at Parking Lot Palooza by Miriam Lamey

Sunday, Sept. 25

New York City has them. Cleveland’s got a few. They’re probably out in Los Angeles as well, and now Erie has its own.

Mod Apothecary owner Stacey Skala Orr and Pointe Foure Vintage Boutique owner Emily George came together to plan and execute Parking Lot Palooza: Sunday Market Pop-Up, which will transform the Colony Plaza parking lot into an outdoor shopping and socializing event on Sept. 25 from noon to 5 p.m.

We were “inspired by popular flea markets in bigger cities,” explains Skala Orr, and as such, the duo decided to “transform the east end of the Colony Plaza parking lot into an outdoor market experience for the community, featuring live music, food trucks, and vendors selling their original, handcrafted goods.”

From jewelry to art, aromatherapy to Voodoo beer, the event will unite the imaginative for a shopping and socializing extravaganza.

The duo seeks to “Keep Erie Weird,” and really use the event as an opportunity to highlight the crafty, creative, and downright curious endeavors of local talent. From jewelry to art, aromatherapy to Voodoo beer, the event will unite the imaginative for a shopping and socializing extravaganza.

And to further support the community, these entrepreneurs also decided to partner with the #AJO Forever in Our Hearts Foundation. Skala Orr explains, “Voodoo Brewery and The Juice Jar will be donating $1 for each beer or juice sold. Many vendors are being creative with their proceeds, including custom #AJO bracelets by Agatha & Emily and Amaurabeads, to name a few.”

To enlighten the ears, music will be provided by Matt Texter, Gem City Revival, Pine Diary, and Flora. Sean Patrick and the Newgrass Revolution will close out the event during the afterparty, which lets the Colony Grille get in on the action from 6 to 10 p.m., when the restaurant will offer food and drink specials. – Miriam Lamey
