OUR POPUP SHOP

Learn about how we built a popup shop in three days for Christmas 2016 in collaboration with Shelf Exchange (We ran on a whole lotta coffee & a healthy dose of crazy). STORY COMING SOON.

WHY SHOP LOCAL?

When you shop local you support creative entrepreneurs, dreamers + doers, passionate communities, and you boost your local economy. Freewheeling craft provides a platform for you to connect to the people that make your stuff.

CULTIVATING CONNECTIONS

By creating a dynamic marketplace where the public + creative doers can meet, we are building a community of like-minded people- Collaborations, creative entrepreneurs, and the people that want to buy handmade goods.

Community Love

We owe you so much. Having accepted us last year was inspiring, fun and gave us the necessary faith to never let down. Thanks to you, we began to think that something was possible.

"Thank you for everything that you do to keep shopping local relevant + fun". 

Market vendor

You always have the best vendors! I always leave having discovered so many new brands... and spending way more money than I expected! Thank you for helping me discover local brands
