Our Story

Hi! I’m Melissa. I probably know a lot of you out there since I have 30+ years of experience producing large scale festivals, farmers markets, craft fairs and every imaginable event in between. This platform is my passion and and probably the culmination of everything that I have done. It feels right because I know it so well. As a result of all my event production experience I came to the  realization that…..things can be better! My aim is to improve the interface between artisans and event producers and share best practices. There is so much to learn and so much we can do better. Let’s raise the bar to create enhanced and successful experiences for small craft businesses, on-line craft marketers, artisans and those looking too scale their business to the next level.
