Welcome to The Makers Market and Workshops!
We're glad you're here!
Happy New Year from The Makers Market Team!
Looking towards a fresh new year in 2019!
Happy New Year Makers!!
As we reflect on this past year, it’s amazing to see the growth and progress we have made in our business. It’s overwhelming to think of all of our guests who have been so supportive of our venture.
We love to tell the story of how The Makers Market was born. We’re not a franchise, we’re two moms who became accidental entrepreneurs. Many of you know that Jenny and I were two former dental assistants, turned stay-at-home moms, turned volunteer school PTO board members whose husbands wanted us to go back to work. We joke about it a lot, but in reality it’s true! We had no previous business experience. We loved making and building things, and to be honest we didn’t want to go back into the dental field. We decided to use our love of building and crafting and turn it into a place that people would love to come hang out with us, create something pretty and useful, and really get to share the experience with their families. It’s been an amazing two years of building, growing and learning. We couldn’t have done this without the support of our community and customers, and from the bottom of our hearts we thank you!
We’re looking to 2019 with even bigger dreams!
On our list this year is to add our boutique to our website so you can shop online from the comfort of your pajamas at any time of the day! We’re also working on DIY kits and birthday party packages that you can do at home! So many plans that we can’t wait to see come into fruition this year! May all of your dreams for 2019 come true! Happy New Year!
Jenn and Jenny
Meet The Founders
Jenn has always had an entrepreneurial spirit in addition to her natural eye for design. For the past decade, she has enjoyed crafting and selling personalized gifts from her home and on Etsy. Her husband once joked that anything a client asked her to create, she could figure out how to do it... and it wouldn't be long before NASA would call and ask her to build a space station! Until NASA calls, Jenn stays busy crafting, decorating, and enjoying quality time with her husband, their four children, and entertaining friends.
Jenny, an active volunteer at church and her children's schools, is known for her thoughtful handcrafted cards and gifts as well as her extensive DIY tool collection. Jenny is the type to spend hours on handmade valentines for her child's class, even though she knows many may end up in the trash bin. She realizes one card just might make someone's day and that makes the endeavor worthwhile. This busy wife and mother of two boys, joyfully shares her passion for cooking and crafting with family and friends and soon with the public through this exciting business venture
Not only does John Happen to be Jenn's dad, but he's also a master carpenter with over 50 years of experience. John started wood working at the young age of 14! His career includes; furniture building and antique furniture restoration. Now that Jenn and Jenny have brought him out of retirement, he spends his days putting his craftsmanship into every single project at The Makers Market.
