To support the maker movement, One-OneThousand operates as a co-working space for professional artisans and craftspeople. As soon as you enter the 4,800-square-foot warehouse on the east side of Madison, you’ll find retail items lining the walls and a large table in the center, perfect for collaboration and workshops.
Sarah Artz, founder of One-OneThousand, curates the retail space to support local Madison and Midwest makers. Some even work out of the studios in the back of the warehouse.
Artz says she tries to use the space to tell the story of different products made in the community. She says she wants to provide products for a handcrafted lifestyle.
“It all fits for that conscious shopper who wants to buy things that have a story attached to them,” Artz says.
The retail space is an extension of the Good Day Market, an event One-OneThousand hosts multiple times a year where a variety of makers can sell their products.
“A lot of feedback we got is [that] people wanted to shop these goods more than just twice a year,” she says.
One-OneThousand’s space stocks clothing, accessories, kitchen goods, homewares, lighting, wall art and creative supplies. They also sell Made Kits, a line of all-inclusive packages for those interested in learning a craft.
“I think it makes sense for retail to fit with One-OneThousand. The ultimate goal is for the makers to be selling their goods,” Artz says.
The retail space will be open during workshops, the Good Day Pop-Up on July 28 and Sept. 15 and monthly retail hours. Products are also available online.
