Hello, and welcome! We are new to blogging, but eager to share with you what we are looking to do at our Member Showroom and Gallery in the Market Arcade Building.
You may have read that Jen and I met and immediately bonded over our obsession with turning unwanted furniture into functional pieces of art. We talked endlessly about the need for makers like us to have a network of like-minded souls to work and collaborate with. When we were tired of all the talking we just decided to build that network ourselves and thus the Buffalo Women's Consortium was born.
When asked if we wanted to participate in an outdoor festival, we said yes.
When asked if we wanted to have a pop-up holiday bazaar, we said yes.
When asked if we wanted to participate in the Queen City Pop-Up, we said yes.
When asked if we wanted to lease a permanent location in the iconic Market Arcade Building, we said yes.
We keep saying yes as each door opens because we know that when we begin to say no future doors may be closed.
So here we are, about to open our first store, our Member Showroom and Gallery, where we plan to support and grow our community of members, comprised of incredibly talented female artists, artisans, and healers.
It is through this blog site that we will share their stories and give you a chance to meet our makers, sharing how they were inspired to turn their passion into their purpose. It is here too where we hope to inspire others to do the same, to test the waters, and tap into their creative mind and spirit.
We welcome your comments and hope you will not only continue to visit our site, but visit our Member Showroom and Gallery at 617 Main Street in the Market Arcade Building.
Say yes and turn your passion into your purpose :)
Holly and Jen
