Clients of New Mexico State University’s Arrowhead Center and Studio G will be selling their wares ranging from jewelry and clothing to art and salsa at the first Aggie Pop-Up in downtown Las Cruces.
The pop-up event will be from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, on Main Street Downtown next to Dragon Fly restaurant, 139 N. Downtown Mall. The event will be held at the same time as the Art Ramble.
Lydia Hammond, the Innoventure program coordinator at Arrowhead Center, said organizers worked in partnership with the City of Las Cruces’ economic development office to create the event.
“The idea is student entrepreneurs will be able to meet new and different clients, and people who are attending the Art Ramble will be able to meet more of our students and see what all we have going on with our student business programs,” Hammond said.
Vendors include The Bossy Gourmet selling green chile salsa, jalapeno salsa and red enchilada sauce; NoRu Boutique selling jewelry and handbags; Paquime Boots selling cowboy boots; Raww Rodeo and Western Wear selling western clothing; Studio 3 Floral Designs selling floral arrangements; and Super Trikes selling t-shirts. Tech service-based vendors include Zeall and Torch Bearer.
