Emma is the Founder of The Hip Handmade Market. After having been to many fun boutiques/fairs/markets over the years she decided that she wanted to offer one in the community that she loves + lives in. Emma currently lives on a farm just outside of the Carthage city limits and works from home. She enjoys sewing, crocheting, pizza, + the occasional binge tv show watching session. When she isn't busy raising, caring for, + playing with her 2 kids, she runs EmmaMade, the perfect place to purchase rad handmade party accessories for any celebration.

You can send her an email at Emma[at]TheHipHandmadeMarket[dot]com, find her on Twitter + Pinterest, and follow EmmaMade on Instagram
