Over 40 vendors gathered at the Tin Cup Saturday to offer a variety of goods including clothing, accessories, baked goods and homemade creations.
One of the vendors was Kristen Page. Page and her husband, Dusten, have been operating B&P Honey for about a year. According to Kristen, a local beekeeper was retiring and selling his operation. Kristen's husband, who has a full-time job, decided to do the bee business in addition to his regular job.
The business makes honey, homeycombs and wax items such as soaps, scrubs, and candles.
Among the other vendors at the event was Pompa's Small Shop. Adrianna Pompa, along with her mother Michelle Pompa, were at the event selling their products. Adrianna, who has been operating her business for a couple of years now, makes her own soaps, scrubs, as well as creating earrings.
Pompa started her business after having trouble finding products that would not irritate her sensitive skin. With a trial and error method, Pompa found a successful combination of ingredients that she could use to create these all natural products that are very popular. In addition to pop-up events, Pompa sells her products on her Instagram, as well as having a display at Sun Country Flowers in Shafter.
Haley Plaza, who has been featured in the Shafter Press previously, had a big line at her booth, evidence of the popularity of the homemade breads and olive oils. She has a variety of breads including sourdough, jalapeno cheese, a lemon-blueberry loaf, as well as a wheat bread, among many others.
Among those also in attendance was TieDye Fash, operated by Andrea Diaz, who sells a selection of shirts and other clothing tie-dyed in a variety of colors and styles.
Pop up events have grown in popularity, especially in the past two years, with the emergence of covid-19.
