Pickerington, Ohio - At the Humble Crate Artisan Marketplace, owner Janis Francis is gearing up for a busy holiday season.
"Anywhere from a block away, clear to South Athens. There's a ton of vendors in here and I've gotten to know them through the years," Francis said.
Inside you'll find specialty foods, artwork, clothing and more. Francis said she was inspired to create the shop after working for years as the area's farmer's market manager.
"I have found that our community needed a spot where a lot of the vendors I've come to know can come to one spot. Instead of the farmer's market once a week, we're open every single day," she said.
Bianca Grey and Kristen Harris are both vendors. Their products are featured within the store.
Grey sells her handmade Florence Grace jewelry while Harris showcases her M&Z Designs products including clothing celebrating the area's Division 1 State Champion Pickerington Central High School Tigers.
"It's exciting," Grey said. "I've been a vendor for so long that it's just my world and meeting all of these other vendors, they've become my family."
Open for a few months now, these women said they're already celebrating success and are proud of the community they're building.
"There's anything for any age or gender," Harris said.
The Humble Crate Artisan Marketplace is located at 18 East Columbus Street, Pickerington, Ohio 43147.
