Virtual Valentine Market
What is a Virtual Market?
A group of Makers gathering on an online platform (in this case- Instagram) to bring you handmade goods at a coordinated time!

10 AM AKST
Where? Participating Makers' Instagram Stories
How does the Virtual Valentine Market Work?
At 10AM 2/6 Participating Makers will begin posting items for sale on their Instagram Stories. Each Maker will tag the other participating Makers so you know what Instagram Accounts to visit. Makers will provide instructions on how their sales will work. Just like an in person market- every Maker will run their sales a little bit differently! Send the Maker a direct message to purchase!
Some Makers ship, some have local pickup, some have both
Some Makers take payment through Venmo or PayPal, some Makers may direct you to a product on their website

How do I buy something on a Virtual Market?
