Watch This Space: The Consumer Show, Guest Post Edition

The streak had to end sometime, y'all. After eight months in a row, I finally had a scheduling conflict to cover The Consumer Show. (And it's the TechStars Edition! I know, I know. I'm sad too.)

Fortunately, Switchyards is full of amazing people doing amazing things, and one of them, Shannon Kroll, is willing to help me out. She'll be guest-posting here with her own take on the monthly recap, so keep an eye out at the regularly scheduled time (usually the Monday after, unless Jason Seagle's rushing me).

Shannon is the director of Root City Market, a local pop-up event that you didn't even know you'd been missing out on. (Now you know. I expect an attendance spike, people!) Think London weekend market meets the Brooklyn Flea. That's the essence of the Root City Market, a quarterly pop-up market that calls Atlanta home. In a nod to all things local, Root City Market turns the spotlight on the makers who are proudly crafting in the South.
