Mimosa Goods features a curated collection of handmade, fair trade and eco-friendly goods. Our goal is to highlight the good that we can do as individuals by being conscious consumers and supporting both the makers and causes important to each of us.
Over the past year we’ve begun offering space for area artisans to grow their own businesses by consigning at Mimosa Goods - it’s been a great experience and we’re happy to expand this program and look forward to growing new partnerships! Please read the details below and contact Sarah directly with any questions at email@example.com.
