Local Philadelphia Artisan, Joanne Litz,  Accepted via Jury to Three Sisters' Marketplace
New Online Marketplace for Artisans, Crafters & Hobbyists to Sell Their Work

Local Philadelphia, PA Artisan, Joanne Litz, was recently approved to sell their work on a new online marketplace – ThreeSistersMarketplace.com.  You can find her Shop at www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com/steelpony/home
Joanne is a native of Philadelphia, graduated from Philadelphia College of Textile and Science (now Philadelphia University) in Textile Design.  A fiber addict, Joanne has spent the last 20 years honing her skills by creating a line called Steel Pony    

Her newest obsession is called The Pony Project.  Her goal is to partner with like minded businesses and non profits to give back to the community.  Joanne, Dennis (her husband and partner) and Jessica (more then an employee) create upcycled Wearable Art.   By creating events in their studio they sell the pieces giving part of the proceeds to Local Charities.  Three Sisters Marketplace, a juried online marketplace has also given Steel Pony an opportunity to sell pieces from The Pony Project.

About Three Sisters' Marketplace: Three Sisters’ Marketplace was founded in Philadelphia, PA by businesswoman and artist Wendy Wolf.  After years as a successful executive in sales and marketing in the pharmaceutical industry, Wolf decided to combine her business experience and her passion for art to build a web-based business http://www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com.

Wolf’s inspiration came from the people closest to her - artisans in her family, her friends and neighbors who created beautiful pottery, hand-knit sweaters, and fine jewelry as well as unique sculptures, paintings and more. Artisans found it was a challenge to justify the expenses of maintaining art galleries and art stores or carting delicate items to and from art exhibits and craft shows. Wolf thought it would be easier to create a platform online to showcase items and create an art community exchange.  The whole basis of the site is the balance of the ‘three’ as in the Native American ‘three sisters’ legend of corn, beans, and squash planted as inseparable sisters who grow and thrive together.  It is a sophisticated, sustainable system that provides long-term soil fertility and a healthy diet to generations.  The three plants flourish because of their symbiotic relationship of working together.  “On Three Sisters' Marketplace the artisans, shoppers and our online community all benefit from the relationship – the artisan makes a sale, the buyer gets a quality handmade product, and Three Sisters' Marketplace also benefits by bringing them together and growing for the future” says Wolf. The three plants flourish because they work and grow together – just as artisans, shoppers and our online community do on Three Sisters' Marketplace (www.threesistersmarketplace.com) .

Three Sisters Marketplace is a family business that supports artisans across the United States. Wolf is a wife, mom, artist, sales person, marketer and leader who is now using the skills she’s honed to launch a dream. The purpose is to bring the “Main Street shopping experience online.”  Three Sisters’ Marketplace is a people connector that satisfies the needs of everyone in the mix and that also allows everyone to have fun in the process.  

It’s free to join and list at Three Sisters’ Marketplace online at www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com !
