I'm constantly inspired by all the talented small businesses out there doing their thing, sharing their passion, and creating a product they stand behind proudly. There is so much power in the story behind our products and that story can be a cause for concern or an opportunity for connection depending on where you shop.
My home & closet is filled with treasures from markets - knowing who made my goods is the best feeling!
I love the traditional way of shopping via marketplaces and I believe in making it accessible as possible for attendees and small businesses.
My mission is to bring the dollar back into local economies by providing pop-up shopping experiences for makers, creators, and small businesses.
The heart behind our local businesses is what makes this platform possible and those who show up at our events to support the cause is what keeps us going strong. Shopping at our events is a great way to invest back into your community & consume more intentionally. A healthy, thriving economy depends on successful small businesses and that's why I care so deeply about this work and this platform.
