About Three Sisters’ Marketplace
Three Sisters’ Marketplace was founded in Philadelphia, PA by businesswoman and artist Wendy Wolf. After years as a successful executive in sales and marketing in the pharmaceutical industry, Wendy decided to combine her business experience and her passion for art to build a web-based business www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com. Wendy’s inspiration came from the people closest to her - artisans in her family, her friends and neighbors who created beautiful pottery, hand-knit sweaters, and fine jewelry as well as unique sculptures and paintings.
Artisans found it was a challenge to justify the expenses of maintaining art galleries and art stores or carting delicate items to and from art exhibits and craft shows. Wendy thought it would be easier to create a platform online to showcase items and create an art community exchange.
The whole basis of the site is the balance of the ‘three’ as in the Native American ‘three sisters’ legend of corn, beans, and squash planted as inseparable sisters who grow and thrive together. It is a sophisticated, sustainable system that provides long-term soil fertility and a healthy diet to generations. The three plants flourish because of their symbiotic relationship of working together.
“On Three Sisters' Marketplace the artisans, shoppers and our online community all benefit from the relationship – the artisan makes a sale, the buyer gets a quality handmade product, and Three Sisters' Marketplace also benefits by bringing them together and growing for the future” says Wendy. It’s free to join and list at Three Sisters’ Marketplace online at www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com.
