About M4M

MARKETS FOR MAKERS ELEVATES EMERGING BRANDS BY CREATING UNIQUE SHOPPING EXPERIENCES.

OUR OBJECTIVE

To find premier spaces and transform them into a market experience. Our markets are carefully curated with Makers who create items you can’t easily find in stores. It’s about the discovery of one-of-a-kind or small batch items you never thought to look for. These Makers specialize in home decor, fashion, art, design, food and more. We aim to forge the relationship between independent artists and their future loyal customers.

WHO ARE THE MAKERS?

Makers are artists, writers, photographers, collectors and designers, they are the creators and dreamers that are driven to create the next great brands of the future.

ABOUT US

Founded in 2015, Markets for Makers has seen explosive growth and success of all of our markets through collaborations with key partners and the use of social media and marketing. Renowned for our ability to promote markets, we are expanding across the US in 2018 with 10 new markets and growing to double our markets in cities nationwide by 2019.
 
Our markets are different in that they comprise a diverse collection of handmade makers, boutiques, vintage and unique items you can’t find in stores. Attendees can enjoy these hundreds of Makers while also enjoying food, drinks and photo walls that create memorable experiences.
 
In turn our markets have an impact on local communities and naturally revitalize local economies.

Autumn With Topsail Festival 2019

Mushpa + Mensa is very excited to be a part Autumn with Topsail this year. Come down and see us and the plethora of other fabulous artisans, music and food! More 411 on the event below.

Started in 1988, The Autumn With Topsail Festival is held on the grounds of the Historical Society of Topsail Island and the Assembly Building which houses the Missiles & More Museum in Topsail Beach, NC.  The festival features a juried Artists’ and Crafts Court with over 100 regional artists displaying and selling their work. Enjoy exciting live musical entertainment, a variety of amazing food with beer and wine, games and rides for children, and much more!

Housed inside this historic Assembly Building is the Missiles and More museum. The Missiles and More Museum came to life when a group of citizens were concerned for the future of the historical Assembly Building. The building was constructed in 1946 and was used by the government to assemble missiles for a secret missile operation being conducted on Topsail Island. So the citizens began to pursue their goal to preserve the building and after several years of research, Feasibility and studies and the meeting with the state and local representatives the building was purchased. Thus it was decided that the Assembly Building would be the perfect place to have the Missiles and More museum. The late Betty Polzer’s dream was to promote the history of Topsail Island. Through hard work and dedication, her dream was finally realized and the Missiles and more Museum opened for all to enjoy in 1995.
