“We just didn’t know what to do with it,” she says.
“I was like, I could do this on a miniature scale.”
Starting Oct. 20, Brookover plans to devote the second floor of 924 W. Douglas to the Art Market at Bluebird Arthouse every third Saturday of the month.
Brookover already has about a dozen booths rented to sell art, handbags, pottery and skincare products.
“We have all sorts of people,” she says. “I’m looking to do really a wide variety of artists and artisans.”
If the concept is successful, Brookover says she’ll expand it to other days.
“That’s sort of the idea if it goes well.”
She notes that the upstairs is not handicap accessible.
Interested vendors can contact Brookover at Bluebird Arthouse. Spaces will rent for $30 or $45 for a larger area.
Brookover thinks the idea will work, especially for artists who may not have venues to show their work.
As she says in a press release about it, “It’s like a Farmer’s Market, only better.”
