Our History

Independent Style Market (aka ISM ) began as a series of handmade shows held in 2010 and 2011 that were sponsored by the Memphis Melange Etsy Team, a group of local makers who connected on Etsy.com, the premier site for All Things Handmade.

The team was formed in November 2010 with 1 member and today we have over 200 members from all over the Midsouth. The team includes sewers, painters, knitters, photographers, graphic designers, milliners, furniture makers, jewelers and much more! To borrow a phrase from localist Abe Schwab - if we can't make it, you probably don't need it!

Over the past 3 years we've produced 4 handmade events and produced the highly successful Indie Style Market @ MemShop Popup at Overton Square in December 2012. In 2013, we did a Valentine's Day Popup in Chickasaw Crossing February and a popup on Broad Ave from June to November.

Our Goals

  • To provide a venue where makers and consumers of indie/handmade goods can intersect and do business
  • To foster creativity in everyday people by teaching them skills such as sewing that they can use to produce their own goods
  • To inspire the creative community to leverage the internet  & social networking to launch new businesses
  • To provide the Midsouth community with a fun, family-friendly, educational, & entertaining experience
