Keep Made In The Mitten Open + Help The Artists!

Made In The Mitten is a small business located in Downtown Royal Oak. We currently carry the work of more than 85 small businesses, and they need your help! If we can raise $500 GoFundMe will MATCH that as a grant for our business.

Since opening in 3 years ago we have formed many bonds, helped create amazing opportunities for emerging and seasoned artists, and also put on the largest Michigan Made holiday craft show in the state. As of right now, that show is on hold and many of our artists rely on the sales from that show for Christmas. 

These 85 businesses are used to receiving a certain amount of sales every month in order to pay their bills. A lot of artists are stay at home mothers, single parents, and retirees.Most also pay a rent to Made In The Mitten to pay the buildings rent and work as a collective to keep the doors open. Even with the small business grants, the loans, this process will take a LONG time and we don't want it to be too late! We have already had an entire month with no sales. 

Any help you can give these artists, and owner Colleen McClue to help provide for their families during this time, is so GREATLY appreciated. We cannot express that enough.


Anyone that donates will also receive a 15% off their purchase coupon.
