OUR STORY

Starting in May 2007, I Made It! Market started popping up offering artists the opportunity to sell their handmade wares. The market has traveled across the city, partnering with cultural and community organizations along the way. As we’ve evolved a community of creative makers has congregated making connections and starting businesses, contributing to the local economy and supporting families.

History

Carrie launched the I Made It! Market in 2007 with Pittsburgh celebrity Nina Barbuto of Assemble.


Carrie & Nina were placed next to each other at a craft market at Carnegie Mellon University where Carrie was selling jewelry and Nina ceramics and illustration. The two got to talking about how there were an incredible number of talented artisans looking to sell their work and not so many places to sell or consign at the time. They decided on the spot and made all of the arrangements to hold their first pop up market at the Garfield Artworks on a Sunday afternoon for “I Made It! Sunday Market”.
