Pop-up  [pahp - uhp]

  1. A space that is used by various people for short periods of time for retail, meetings, small events and performances

  2. A marketing concept that showcases artists and small businesses

our vision
The mission of Evolve Shepherdstown is to bring fine arts, crafts, quality goods, entertainment and other pursuits to visitors and residents of hip and historic Shepherdstown.  We have hosted a variety of pop-up shops in Evolve’s space.  Some pop-ups featured recognized local artists and businesses and others introduced new artwork and products to the Eastern Panhandle.  Evolve has hosted meetings, book signings, artist talks, and community events. All the pop-ups at Evolve have contributed to the vibrancy of Shepherdstown and have given visitors and residents
even more to enjoy.

why our space
The Evolve shop is located at 106 West German Street, a prime location on the main street of this unique town.  Over 70,000 tourists visit Shepherdstown every year.  They come for one of the town’s festivals, to visit the Antietam battlefield, to hike, bike, kayak, or run a marathon.  If you visit Shepherdstown, you undoubtedly pass the corner of King and German to shop or dine.  Twenty feet west of that corner is where you will find the Evolve Shepherdstown pop-up space.

In addition to the foot traffic along German Street, Evolve will actively promote pop-ups on our own social media platforms and will happily work with guests on other promotional opportunities.

  We generally charge a flat fee for space and do not take commissions. Because there are variables for the use of the space – for example, length of stay, day(s) of the week – payment arrangements are made individually.  In general, however, the cost is $475 for the exclusive use of the space from 9:00 on Friday through 8 pm on Sunday, giving guests the benefit of the full weekend. 
One to 4 guests may decide to share the space.  
We also can rent on weekdays at $65 a day.
