We Are Boss Mom, in Partnership with SHOPIFY, will be taking over Dadeland Mall’s Fashion Wing & hosting a Mompreneur Competition to kick-off the holiday shopping season. We are looking for a representative for a wide-range of shopping categories. Final vendor selection for the Mercado will be based on uniqueness, scalability, community, and storytelling.
Our goal is to give local mother-owned businesses the opportunity of a retail leasing experience, while inspiring the community and encouraging the Shop Small movement. Boss Mom Mercado is a pop-up marketplace where you can expect hands-on workshops, breakout sessions and kid-friendly activities. Shopping categories will range from home decor to womenswear to wellness. While scoring unique items, you’ll also be supporting We Are Boss Mom, a 501 (c) (3) Non for Profit Organization to provide more opportunities for mothers to scale their business practices.
The shopping fun doesn’t end there. A GRAND PRIZE is at stake for the handful of selected vendors participating in the Mercado. The top mother owned retailer that makes the best number of sales combined with bringing the most fans wins a POP UP SHOP location within Dadeland Mall for the month of October + a Complete Point-of-Sale System by Shopify!
