A Weekend Market You Can Browse From Your Couch
YOUR GUIDE TO SHOPPING HANDMADE THIS SEASON,
PART 1: THE HANDMADE POP-UP, ONLINE MARKET
Support the makers
this holiday season.
Take that money you were about to drop at big chain stores across the city and invest in the people, the stories, the dreams. Surround yourself with meaning - goods that have been crafted with intention and love. Support the makers this holiday season.
I'm pledging to shop small this year. I'll be honest, I've fallen victim to careless spending around the holidays for too many years, but I'm looking forward to spending consciously this year.
Take some time to discover small businesses and brands you connect with, ask questions, let them know what you're looking for, allow them space to use their expertise. To kickstart your journey to supporting small this season, I've put together a 3-part guide to shopping handmade.

In Part 1 of this guide, I've compiled a collection of awesome brands from The Handmade Pop-Up. The Handmade Pop-Up is a new project, co-founded by Grace of CYL Collective and myself, Sam of Maker's Movement. We wanted to find a way to take the local market experience and turn it global, so we created an online-only holiday pop-up that features the work of 200+ independent artists and makers, collectively offering 1000+ handmade goods. It kicked off Friday November 4th and runs until tonight, Sunday November 6th, 6PM EST.
EDIT: THE HANDMADE POP-UP IS NOW CLOSED.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
