Here’s how YOU can help:
BUILD THE BAZAAR
List your online shop with us! If you are a theatre artist with an Etsy shop or side hustle that has unexpectedly become your main gig, list your online store on BackstageBazaar.com. You handle all your own sales and shipping; we’ll handle promotion and provide the platform to bring eager buyers to you. It’s easy to list your store and there is no listing fee or percentage of your sales taken. You will create a username and password, fill in a simple online form, upload two photos and you’ll be done. You can edit or remove it later. Create your listing at Backstage Bazaar HERE.
BUY AT THE BAZAAR
Shop on our site! If you love theatre and want to give gifts as unique as the people receiving them, search the stores on our site and directly support individual artists. Stay tuned for our official launch in mid-November and watch as new stores are added every day. You can search for an individual shop, for specific types of products, or for artists associated with your favorite professional theatre. Click HERE to start shopping at The Backstage Bazaar!
BOOST THE BAZAAR
Get the word out! If you are social media savvy, have many Facebook friends or Instagram followers, are a skilled web designer, SEO expert, code monkey, or PR enthusiast, we could really use your talents. Share our site with your friends. Like or share our Facebook and Instagram posts. Send us your ideas and help us see them through. Email us HERE to tell us how you can help us boost the Bazaar!
BACK THE BAZAAR
Give us a hand! Right now, we (Erin and Truly) are funding all aspects of this project ourselves, and there is only so much we can do without additional assistance. Click the button below to contribute what you can toward site maintenance, hosting, advertising, and PR costs. We hope to be able to employ a few struggling artists for site upkeep and PR with your contributions. We will invest every penny you give into the maintenance and improvement of the website.
While the world’s “next act” is so uncertain, as theatre artists we know that creative problem solving is the very heart of our practice. Theatre only exists through enthusiastic collaboration. Please join The Backstage Bazaar as we take a note from our own playbook and turn toward our remarkable community for help in making the magic happen.
Most hopefully and sincerely,
Erin and Truly
