As we enter into a new year, our hearts are filled with hope and thankfulness.
This has been a year of innovation and growth for the PA Wilds Marketplace. After launching the new online platform last year, 2022 saw us grow to more than 20 makers on the marketplace. Artisans are creating new products specifically for the platform and making connections with new customers. 2022 was also the first time the PA Wilds Makers Market was hosted entirely on ShopThePAWilds.com - which made it easier than ever for shoppers to shop with multiple artists all in one place.
In the upcoming year, we’re looking forward to even more makers joining the PA Wilds Marketplace and adding their incredible products. We’re also thrilled to know that our current makers are already thinking about new products and designs to add in the near future.
Thank you to all of our PA Wilds Marketplace customers. Not only are you purchasing amazing products that show your pride in the Pennsylvania Wilds, but you are investing money into our rural communities and supporting these small business owners.
We’re excited for all of the things that the year 2023 will bring to the PA Wilds Marketplace, our makers, our communities and our shoppers. Happy New Year!
