pop-up shop

I am an artist. I am interested in using your space for a Pop-up Shop. Please let me know if this is an event you host. With pop-up shops you usually don't know exactly how many people with come but its for people to buy merchandise and leave so I think it can work out so the space won't be at max capacity.
