I just received an email about this permanent marketplace opening at the Port of Los Angeles (San Pedro) this summer, 2012, called, CRAFTED. For $500.00/month, you would receive a permanent 10' x 10' stall with a locking, closing gate to keep your wares there. It would be open Fridays-Sundays, but with major holidays off. It seems like there are a lot of benefits to doing something like this, including having a constant influx of tourist and those looking for unique, handmade items see your goods. But I was wondering if any CCCOE members could think of the down side, worries or possible problems? I'd love to hear your thoughts and discuss it in the comments below.
