Black Pop Up Market slated for November 27th

DaWayna McMillan presents The Black Pop Up Market.

The Black Pop Up Market will debut on Sunday, November 27, from 1-5 pm. The public is invited to share in the spirit of the holiday season at Mt. Gilead Baptist Church, 4004 Lebanon Pike, in Hermitage, Tenn.

DaWayna McMillan has planned a fun and exciting day for shoppers, Mt. Gilead Church, and vendors of all kind. There will be jewelry, fitness, crafts, candles, massages, fitness trainers, baked goods and much more. While shoppers peruse the vendors, they will hear the sounds of DJ Levi Allen. This is a great time to shop for gifts and stocking stuffers while supporting Black business owners.

The Black Pop Up Market (BPUM) was created as a way to provide an outlet for those with small independent businesses to sell their wares and services. It’s an education on how to effectively run a business.

“There are a lot of people who’ve recently begun personal businesses and some that have always been in business, and they are glad to have someplace to go to sell,” said BPUM founder DaWayna McMillan.

Some newer vendors are also looking to apply the whole experience of their business. In addition, the purpose is to bring the Black community together to support, celebrate and promote the Black business community, with the opportunity to pour into Black businesses and Black churches.

“I was asked to help with a fall fest and I gladly accepted the request. I thought that I would just clean up after the event and then I was asked to set up as a vendor for my Real Estate business. I had asked some other friends if they would like to set up and upon learning there was no room for additional vendors, I felt a certain devastation for the other people who had accepted. It was then that I got busy looking for a larger venue. Mt. Gilead gladly accepted the offer,” said McMillan. “The BPUM will have many items to shop from.”

McMillan is looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled shopping day at the Black Pop Up Market. Stop by Mt. Gilead, 4004 Lebanon Pike, from 1-5 pm on Sunday, November 27.
