"What attracted us the most to POC was its desire to unite small black owned businesses. It definitely seemed much more professional and high end."

"They were amazing! They were both very approachable and considerate. They made sure to check in with all brands periodically throughout the day, which we loved."

"EVERYTHING WAS WORTH IT."

When asked if the fee was worth it.......

"Yes the fee was fine and it was very stressful balancing the trip with work, and having to drive but it was worth my time. The exposure, the connections made, the people met, the new customers and potential customers. Everything was worth it and as an entrepreneur means the grind is always required no matter what."

"i would do it again."

When asked if they would participate again.....

"I would do it again. I think it's good brand exposure and good to meet different people. I'm reluctant to spend all the money to go out of town if people just shop the brands they know and the one's that drew them there like the Columbus Pop Up."

"amazing vendors"

When asked what they thought about the quality of the vendors....

"Amazing vendors. It was very diverse. Some vendors though I felt were just selling things just to sell, I didn't sense that it was a passion for some but rather a quick way to make some cash.. But i could be wrong."

When asked if the time and fee was worth it...

"I think so. My time, yes as I'm exposing my business to others. The fee was ok. Not too bad."

-Natty Nurses (2nd NYC Popup 2019)

"Yes, i would."

When asked if they would participate again.....

"Yes, I would. I think getting to understand the Atlanta market is tricky but I like that you are doing."
