Holiday on the Square Update: Call to Local Businesses & Makers

Saturday, September 28, 2013

ScrantonMade is working like crazy to create the 1st Annual Holiday on the Square, the area’s first outdoor holiday market.  We’re on the hunt for some great items for our Goodie Bags to be given out to the first 150 shoppers at the market on Saturday (...aka...your ideal customer). We intend to make this the most exciting and creative “swag” bag around; chock full of fun stuff to inspire our customers to love their local artists and businesses even more.

Your “goodie”  will be physically handed to 150 of your ideal customers. They will receive links to your website and/or the address of your brick-and-mortar store, along with any other literature you wish to include–even coupons and special discounts are encouraged. Plus, ScrantonMade will promote you as an event sponsor on our blog and website.

IDEAS, IDEAS. IDEAS (we’ve got a unique one for each of you)

- Samples sizes of your product.  
- Postcard sized prints of your artwork or photography
- Coupons, especially for a free item
- A small sample of your handmade work (i.e. mini soap, perfume, cookie, etc.)
- Small, useful items with your logo and website information
- Got a crazy idea of your own? Go for it!
- Not sure? Let's brainstorm!

If you’re interested in being a part of this unique opportunity, we’ll need the products by November 1st.  The sooner you provide the goods, the sooner we can start promoting your biz.

ScrantonMade LOVES to help local businesses create unique promotions (...we really do!..) and we’d be happy to help you come up with the perfect “goodie” to promote your business!

Announcing: Holiday on the Square!

Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Imagine Courthouse Square transformed into a cozy outdoor holiday market complete with heated tents, festive lights and decorations; live music, carolers, a tree lighting, children's activities, hot chocolate, and, of course, the best handcrafted artisan wares our area has to offer. Inspired by outdoor holiday markets in other cities, ScrantonMade and Lackawanna County have decided to partner up (once again) to bring this tradition right to our very own downtown.

We can't wait for you to join us for the 1st annual outdoor winter market, Holiday on The Square at Courthouse Square, in downtown Scranton. The event will open on December 6th during First Friday Art Walk and continue 11am-6pm on Sat, December 7th

So get ready to bundle up, head downtown and truly celebrate the season! 

Are you an artist or organization that would like to be part of the art gallery or entertainment? email
