Markets and Partnerships!
Here's a little recap of the past couple of events we've had over the last two months. Get excited! :)
For the second time, Milwaukee's Newest Artisans had their own booth at the Wauwatosa Farmer's Market on August 4th. They sold 35 baskets, and made a combined total of $632 . Looks like they are still kickin' booty!
The women were also invited to be the Featured Artists at the Silver City International Festival held on September 8th and were even paid a small stipend for participating! They sold 23 baskets and earned $387! Thank you to our friends at Layton Boulevard West Neighbors for the invitation.
In other news, we're excited to announce that the women's baskets can now be found in two more local stores... Milwaukee Home, located in the Third Ward, and The Waxwing which is located on the East Side. Both stores are pretty rad and we are grateful for their partnerships.
Yes, we are ALWAYS in need of plastic bags, so please continue to save them for us! The women's number one request is for more and more plastic bags. It keeps them busy, their minds occupied, and fills them with hope. Yes, just a simple plastic bag. :)
We also just completed our first fiscal year, so we'll have an update soon about the impact you all have made!
As always, thank you for your support!
