GROWop Photo Tour Part 2

Kenny, Josh and I run the GROWop, a small co-op in downtown Phoenix (902 N. 6th Street) . Our goal is to help small, independant businesses grow and flourish in the community. There are so many talented folks out there, some who already have Etsy shops or consign in local boutiques who are trying to expand their efforts and spread their talent and we wanna be the ones to help. Right now we have about seven consigners and are working hard to reach out to some more. We have big goals and are searching for likeminded people to join our consignment team. If you make quality handmade items and would like to inquire about consigning at the GROWop please email us with some photos of the things you make and a little snippet about yourself at merrymayhandmade@gmail.com or growopboutique@gmail.com.

This might be my favorite thing in the whole shop. Kenny made this book shelf (get it?) out of a whole buncha hard cover books. I love it. It's real heavy.
I really want to work on creating a big and adorable children's section.

These hand bound sketch books are super awesome and each cover is handpainted.
In the back we have this great little work space. Things are coming together slowly but surely. It's going to be suuuuuper awesome.

I hope you enjoyed the tour. If you're local pop in and visit : )
