Vendors in the HUB

For The Clock

One of my favorite places to hang out and read is the hub. I have often noticed people selling things, giving out information and offering up what the Bible can do for us. All along I thought these were groups on campus raising awareness or funds for specific clubs on campus. It wasn’t until I stopped to speak with someone sitting at one of the banquet tables to realize that some of the people sitting behind the tables are independent vendors/business owners. 

I spoke with Lynne Glass of LuLaRoe LynnGlass. She owns and operates her woman’s clothing business, a consumer direct product line. LuLaRoe clothing is affordable, comfortable, clothing for women and children. The manufacturer produces 2500 pieces of each print in different styles. Lynn said that every consultant’s inventory is different and constantly changing due to sales and the turnover of new patterns and colors.

LuLaRoe offers fun prints for the young and for the young at heart. Items offered run from young children to women and there is a size for everyone out there. Included are skirts, shirts, dresses and butter soft leggings. The leggings are not see through so you can be assured that nothing will be showing that you don’t want to show. I also have to mention the waistband on the leggings; it is not some skimpy ½ inch elastic that you will have to tug up every twenty minutes. Every female student that is reading this will understand what I am referring to.

Since this whole private vender thing was new to me I asked Lynne, how did you know whom to contact? She told me she was a former Alumni of Plymouth State University and knew she had to contact the Hub. She told me she placed the question on the Hub Facebook page and someone got back to her with the information she needed. Getting back to her took a while but she was able to get the date she wanted. Set up space is limited and she told me she had to negotiate bringing in a clothing rack to hang her wares. Vendors/businesses are provided a table and chairs for a fee but they need to bring your own tablecloth.

The day I spoke with Lynne was a beautiful, sunny day and she said business was slow. She informed me that she was allowed to hang posters two weeks before her scheduled date but could not post anything on the school’s Facebook page. Lynne said she hoped to come back to campus because she believed in her product and thought students might like it too. The hardest part about setting up on campus was getting merchandise from her car to the site. Yes, you do get a parking space but it is not particularly close if you have a quantity of merchandise to assemble. The other thing lacking was not being able to get the word out that you are coming.

So the next time you pass through the hub take the time to say hello to the vendors visiting campus. And for all you entrepreneur’s out there you can start right here at home on the Plymouth Campus.
