Anushka Rodrigues and Karla Faleiro are college friends that got together in the summer of 2016, to introduce the concept of POP UP BAZAARS to Goa.
“A pop-up is basically a temporary location for vendors to sell their products and services, and build interest in their brand”.
Their pop-ups serve as a platform for people from all walks of life to sell their commodities or showcase their talents. They encourage both small and developing businesses alike to get exposure to the public.
What started out as a small inkling, turned into an idea that multiplied exponentially as the two young girls tackled all challenges while organizing such an event for the first time on a large scale in Goa. Popsicle Inc. was thus co-founded. The success of their first event is evident from the growing popularity of the concept in the state!
Popsicle Inc.’s first pop-up, “ The Midsummer Pop-up bazaar”, was held on 10th April 2016 at the spacious open-air venue Green Amaze, in Gogol, South Goa. It was an all day affair from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm. They planned on having 30 stalls but ended up with 55 stalls because of the demand! The footfall was approximately 1500.
Popsicle Inc. hosted its second pop up; “Merry Mistletoe-A Christmas Pop-Up Bazaar”, on 11th December 2016. This time there were 90 stalls and a staggering footfall of over 3000 people at the same lush lawn covered venue. The event went on from 4pm to 10.30pm
Thanks to the overwhelming response from the public, Anushka and Karla plan to continue to host such events for years to come.
Our aims are simple
- To provide entrepreneurs, talented individuals, small businesses and developing businesses a platform to reach potential buyers they wouldn’t normally get access to.
- To boost their sales
- To help them expand their networks, generate more referrals and leads thus providing great opportunities for their business.
- To build relationships with our vendors that are honest, sincere and of value to both parties-we continue to provide stalls and amenities at affordable rates.
How does this help ?
This unique genre of events encourages public benefit and boosts the economy.
