The last few weeks have brought many moments of reflection. Of looking back to where we were in January until now. It’s truly been a year for the records. From popup markets, to workshops, seminars and social events. Not to mention our Grand Opening celebration to make it ‘official’!!
We started the year off dreaming and planning all the things we wanted to accomplish this year. Some goals were achieved, while some were not and some we let go of all together because they just weren’t a fit. And that’s ok. We listened, we observed, we learned. There were business relationships born, discovered and strengthened. Friendships grew and flourished. From these connections we witnessed our community coming together, becoming stronger, becoming fuller, becoming more than we were before. And that’s exactly what we’re hungry to feed, to nurture to be her best self – our community. It is our mission to make handmade more accessible, widen our fellowship, let our talents be heard, be valued, be known.
From each pickup, each conversation, seminar, every popup market and workshop, we grow. We listen, we learn. We want to do better, be more, for you and our community. We are blessed to work with the handmade community of artisans and entrepreneurs. It’s an honour we do not take lightly. We understand that we have a duty, a responsibility and a privilege to serve our community. It’s an honour we wear with pride. We’re excited to show the world everything our community has to offer. We’re thrilled to be able to help each and every business grow. We believe in you, in your dreams. We promise to show up. To cultivate our community. To wake up every day and serve you, to provide you support and resources to be the best you can be. Every service we provide has your handmade business at heart. We are not a business where you need to conform to fit in. We are a business that was built around your unique needs.
We started out with an idea. That quickly became a dream. And a dream became a plan. We are so grateful to each and every one of you that helped make that plan a reality. A business with a heart. A business with a purpose. A business with a community. We cannot wait to see what 2019 holds for us all. We certainly hope you will join us!
