What did we get when we combined MakerPlace and its rock star makers along with Westfield Mission Valley’s DIY fest this past month? A DIY masterpiece, that was a filled with creative minds and maker enthusiasts that came out and showed their support.
MakerPlace and its members, their family and friends, made a hard hitting impact on the fest as a whole. The success of our amazing participants and members who sold their creations brought an outpour of inventors and curious mall-goers, ready to dive into the unique and inventive products available for purchase.
Vendors from MakerPlace displayed unique products at booths that inevitably dominated an entire wing of the Fest and were the obvious highlight of the event. Undeniably it was a great opportunity for MakerPlace and our members to gain a lot of exposure to a broad crowd; creating the perfect environment for selling their wares to anyone with an eye for creativity and a needs for all things DIY.
A big congratulations goes out to Pat Downing for landing a large commission sculpture, the Lucero’s for their success with the Back Sedator, and Dan Gunn for taking his laser skills to the next level and turning out an entire booth of productless than 2 weeks
If you missed out on this event, don't worry, there are still more DIY opportunities to be had! Make sure to find us creating a buzz at the MakerPlace pop-up store in the UTC mall located in La Jolla the week after Thanksgiving where we will be exhibiting more self-made products by our members, just in time for the holidays! And be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for another DIY fest in early 2013.
