In 2010, the economy was bad and Michigan’s was one of the worst. Chris & Tiffany Best both saw the writing on the wall. They had respectable jobs and skills but wanted to invent their own future. How though? The ah-ha moment came at an art fair. Tiffany wrote a convincing business plan and on paper it was perfect—a local artisan community space for conducting regular business.

After some research, Chris & Tiffany discovered that this model was already working in Brooklyn New York. They visited the NY spot and nosed their way into speaking with the owners, who said “We think you have moxie and may be able to pull it off. We’ll let you know what to do and what not to do because there’s no way in hell we will ever do this in Detroit.” The rest is history. Mostly. Remember the line mentioned above? “On paper it was perfect!”

One of the major goals of this expansion project is to lead to the market component being open beyond the current weekend hours.
