Local Folsom Artisan, Kristine Kauffman, Accepted via Jury to Three Sisters' Marketplace New Online Marketplace for Artisans, Crafters & Hobbyists to Sell Their Work
By: Wendy Wolf
Local Artisan, Kristine Kauffman, was recently approved to sell their work on a new online marketplace – ThreeSistersMarketplace.com. You can find her Shop at www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com/
Kristine is a graduate of Ridley High School and The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA and has background in tailoring. She operates Kiki’s Things out a spare bedroom. (that is often bursting at the seams!) She does her best to offer quality Handmade Children's Dress-up items and clothing and makes all of the items seen here herself by hand.
Kiki had been sewing for most of her life and, in 2009, went full-time with Kiki’s Things. She specializes in children's costumes, many of which are her original designs and also has designed costumes based on customers' requests. Kiki has created a Mermaid Tail Towel Cover-Up that is hard for any little girl to resist. She also is able to make any size from babies to adults. In addition to Three Sisters' Marketplace, Kiki's Things costumes have been included in several stage productions and can be found in several specialty shops around the country.
About Three Sisters' Marketplace:
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.
