We started vending our signature, hand-blown glass pumpkins in Salem in 2010 and this year was our best year by far. We have nothing but great things to say regarding Creative Collective’s management during the Haunted Happenings. From communications prior to October, assigning vendor locations, supervising load-in, to checking in multiple times during each and everyday as well as coordinating load-out, all went very smoothly.

I just wanted to write to you to thank you and the Creative Collective for making our vending experience in Salem this Halloween so easy and organized. We had our best year yet vending there and your team was very responsive to all our concerns and questions and went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. We do many events and seldom meet market managers as wonderful as you guys are. Your team is top notch and the best!

Karen and I would like to pass on a special thank you for allowing us to vend with Creative Collective this past October in Salem. This was by far our best year vending and would not have been possible if it wasn’t for you and your staff. We received timely emails each week as to where we were to vend. When arriving each morning we were greeted by either you or someone on your staff that was always smiling and made us feel welcome.
