Here’s more from Cassie:
Prairie Commons Business Collective is a grassroots, community-based organization of craftsperson, artisans, furniture makers, artists, poets, and supporters.
We understand that there is not going to be in illumination of Amazon, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t shop local.
At Prairie Commons Collective, are businesses and artists full of creative and innovative individuals who are wanting to showcase their products & online stores to the masses. Since all crafter, vendor fairs and homeshows are cancelled due to the pandemic, we need to market smarter. Collectively.
