In 2012 I started an online shop called The Makery. We held flash sales for locally made goods. We raised $5,000 on Kickstarter and then moved to Durham after winning a free condo and office space from the Durham Chamber of commerce. In 2014 we opened a brick and mortar store downtown Durham and subsequently joined forces with a coworking space and rebranded to The Mothership.
We've been mentioned in CNN Travel, Fast Co Design, and on the Country Living Blog. We sell goods, host events, and start conversations for creatives. Pay us a visit at 401 W Geer St in Durham.
