Hello! My name is Erica and I am the owner and organizer of Fancy Pants Events AZ. I’m a born and raised Arizonan and I love this beautiful state. I first became involved in events by selling cupcakes as a vendor in 2014.  After participating in several boutiques and craft fairs in the Mesa/Gilbert area; I began to hold events of my own. After organizing the first event I was hooked! Don’t get me wrong, it’s a ton of work, but it is work I enjoy doing. I love bringing together artists, makers, and entrepreneurs and helping them find potential clients, followers & other like minded folks.

 

Nothing is better than seeing the smiles and hearing complements from the vendors & shoppers during and after an event. Because of that, I put an extraordinary amount of effort into advertising, organizing and managing each event. One of my goals for each Fancy Pants Event is to provide a large variety of unique and interesting businesses, fun activities and an opportunity for shoppers and vendors to get to know one another. Our events are usually quite large, anywhere from 60 to 100 vendors; most of which are handmade or locally curated businesses. Food, of course, is a must at any enjoyable event. There are almost always lots of sweet treats being sold by a variety of vendors, as well as, food trucks offering tasty and exciting options. Every event is family friendly and typically pet friendly as well. Between the beautiful and unique finds, food and the smiling faces we have a pretty darn good time.

 

Whether you have a small business or simply enjoy shopping locally, I hope you’ll join us some time.
