Grab your family members and bring a few stacks of dollar bills; the Creativity Shell will be hosting their 3rdannual Munchkin Market on Saturday, December 7, 2019 where over 40 K-12 Vendors will be selling their own handmade creations to the public.
This public Munchkin Market will consist of K-12 students from all over Rochester converging to sell their own handmade goods. The students will have the unique chance to gain business, social, and entrepreneurial skills as they interact with customers. The Munchkin Market is also a wonderful opportunity for the local kids of Rochester to shine as the next generation of makers.
The Creativity Shell is a nonprofit organization on a mission to use creative trades to educate and inspire the next generation of makers. The organization teaches sewing/textile arts and other trades classes to students in their private studios, libraries, schools and shelters that rescue children from homelessness, trauma and human trafficking. Classes and events hosted by the Creativity Shell such as the Munchkin Market are designed to educate and inspire children by teaching them essential life and practical skills.
Some of the 40+ vendors participating in the Munchkin Market will be Lil Bee Creations, Presents by Parker, Bracelet World, Creations by Charlotte, Kiely Ann Creations and more.
“The children have all been working so hard and we can’t wait to see what they bring to the market this year to sell.” Says Shelancia Daniel, founder and Creative Director of the Creativity Shell. “We want the children to reap the benefits of their hard work and they will be the ones to decide what happens to the money they make. Some children are deciding to keep the money to purchase Christmas presents for their friends and family and others are raising funds for a cause such as a Scout Troop or local shelters” added Daniel.
The Munchkin Market will be held in the atrium of Village Gate Mall located at 274 Goodman Street North, Rochester NY 14607 from 10AM – 2PM.
When asked if there any suggestions for patrons attending the Munchkin Market? “Bring a LOT of cash!” says Daniel.
