Pop Up Space Application

Quidi Vidi Village Plantation has a Pop Up space available for your business!

Quidi Vidi Village Plantation (QVVP) is a craft incubator where craftspeople come to further their craft skills and grow their businesses. Each studio on the second floor also functions as a retail space. Last summer, QVVP attracted many locals and tourists, seeing an average of 260 people a day, which makes it a perfect place for you to get your products seen and purchased.

Keeping with the values of QVVP, our Pop Up Space is specifically for handmade craft. All products must show the “hand of the maker”. Examples include (but are not limited to) ceramics, textiles, printing, and woodworking.  Please refer to the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador Standards of Quality listed on their website.
