MY HISTORY and BIG VISION
I have plans for a 'Community Craft Collective'. It's the evolution of the Inspirit Arts ‘Village to Village’ movement I started in Africa in 1984.
I left my birthplace in Michigan to spend 18 years in Africa and Europe. Inspired by a vision to help eradicate poverty, I left University in France to start the Inspirit Arts cottage craft industry in Africa. This social enterprise raised funds for children’s causes in Kenya and Eswatini by making, and training volunteers of women’s organizations to be vendors.
My greatest gift to the world so far, was starting the now thriving rolled paper movement by going from village to village, in one African country after another, to teach destitute villagers in drought stricken areas how to upcycle paper into jewelry.
Returning stateside to Ohio in 1995, I ran after school youth programs, while studying full time, and traveling the world to source handmade fashion to sell in my pop-up vendor booth.
I've retired from vending to devote myself towards building 'The Pop-Up Vendor Academy' and 'The Wholesale Village eStore' on this platform. They're full of products, courses and resources specifically for organizations to use in support of promoting their own products and service through a sales team of well trained pop-up event vendors.
Now, I'm open to travel for in person workshops and even relocating to open training centers in collaboration with branch partners and others. Scroll down to learn about online and offline programs offered.

Are you interested in social enterprise models for generating income?
Would you rather get scholarships and stipends, or pay out of pocket?
at The Village To Vendor Pipeline
This membership learning community and distribution network offers wholesale products, sales training courses and free resources to pop-up event vendors. There are two divisions:
#1: The Pop- Up Vendor Academy offers a unique specialized selling method for vendors to generate major revenue with 'cash cow' businesses through promoting their own products and services at festivals, trade shows, marketplaces and special events. Vendor Sales Training Courses Here
#2: The Wholesale Village eStore gives vendors access to highly profitable fair trade handmade fashion accessories in wholesale packages that are imported from crafters living in remote villages worldwide. What the poorest people in the world need most is customers. Shop, Sell & Serve Here
OFF LINE & HYBRID PROGRAMS
at The Village To Vendor Pipeline
Group membership rates help organizations fulfill their mission of more impact and revenue. The people they serve get access to online services as well as all the hands-on training needed for real life experience running a proven successful business.
#1: Heart Healing Headwrap-preneurs is an opportunity to continue the product line to an existing customer base for the handwoven headwraps, hats and headbands that I started vending in Ohio over 20 years ago.
‘The Headwrap Vendor Method’ is a multi-cultural humanitarian project with the heart of healing the racial divide.
It involves selling, and also giving away free headwraps to comfort people suffering from chronic illness and hair loss in the community.
#2: Community Craft Collective is a Youth & Family Social Enterprise for making, selling and sharing profits. This upcoming project is a revival of the same cottage craft industry I developed in Africa for nine years.
By upcycling free and inexpensive raw materials into highly profitable and marketable fashion products, youth members and their families will confidently follow a tried and tested business model for certain success.
It begins with forming Sales & Service Squads for families with aspiring youth entrepreneurs.
