About Us

As a Durham home-based maker herself, owner Cheryl Wilson, quickly realized that operating online and not having a physical storefront created a problem when exchanging products. Local buyers want (and should), be able to avoid shipping delays and costs. Because of this, many businesses were using ‘porch pickup’ as their solution. For business owners and local buyers this solution was less than ideal. It’s risky and unprofessional.

 

Our community needed a better way. Which is how The Maker’s Hub (TMH) concept was created. TMH is a local pickup and drop off location, providing distribution for online businesses exchanging goods with their local buyers.

 

Since opening in 2017, TMH has expanded our services and now host a multi-vendor online marketplace (The Local Market), and an online retail boutique (www.themakershub.shop).

 

Our vision is to provide a safe, secure and reliable way for online businesses to exchange with their customers locally.
Cheryl’s inspiration comes from a few places. First and foremost, from the desire to always find better solutions for common problems. She believes in the power of supporting local businesses to build and enrich the community we live and is passionate about supporting women in business. Fun fact, over 90% of the businesses The Maker’s Hub works with are woman owned and operated! These are just some of the things that inspire and drive Cheryl every day to show up and do great things.

“This is a brilliant idea for so many reasons for small makers who don’t want to advertise where they live. And to have your business there & the pop-up shops & workshop space … what’s not to love about The Maker’s Hub?”
