Your Support Leaves an Impact
To see familiar faces that come out to each market to shop, say hello, ask about recent events or trips I’ve shared makes my heart explode! You are a big part of my journey, you are my cheerleaders and you are my friends. I’ve had the privilege of knowing many of you with baby bumps and now your kids call me auntie Karen and run over to give me hugs! There is so much respect amongst the makers, it’s authentic and a sisterhood that supports one another. To have a sense of belonging to a community that supports local and handmade warms my heart and I hope purchase with purpose continues to grow and inspire other communities to do the same.
“I admire how you turn a market place into one of the most successful selling experiences for a small business.
Your market helped us pay for a family trip to Aruba.”
