Newport Ave Pet Store Looking For Artists for PR for Animal Rescue
Calling all Artists! The pet store on Newport Avenue wants you. Sell and advertise your merchandise there on prime shopping days!!!! They are looking to raise awareness and funds for their county approved pet rescue organization – and would like to invite a different artist each Saturday and Wednesday in summer to set up shop in front of their store in a shaded, covered, heavy foot-traffic shopping area. Stay as long or as little as you like during open hours – be the featured artist and enjoy the beach foot-traffic and farmers market shoppers, and help pets at the same time!
They are located just two blocks from the beach in the shopping district, and the best Farmers Market in San Diego also brings many shoppers to the area each week. For a small donation of $40.00 or 15% of your day’s sales, they would like to invite you to make some money for yourself and advertise your merchandise and talent in a mega-busy shoppers paradise! Contact them to book your date and make arrangements. firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 619-226-6250. They say they wish “No political, religious groups please – just art! All art must be pre-approved prior to your day’s event” – contact them for details.
