The NB Box started after owner Ingrid Munroe went looking for the perfect gift for her sister's baby shower. She quickly realized that so many local high quality, artisanal and small batch items are being made in people's homes, during their kids' nap time or in their free time after work. She noticed that you might be able to find them at the farmer's market in the summertime, but you can't always reliably find their products on store shelves. Ingrid realized that there was a need for ready-made gifts in cute simple packaging that showcased and supported completely locally made products. She knew that if it was something that she had been looking for, others would love it as well.

This week’s vendor highlight is Dioné Cosmetics, owned by Weddings Atlantic Beauty Expert Alisha Anderson!
Sarah Anderson had been marrying people for about a year and began to see a trend in people moving away from larger, elaborate weddings and opting for smaller and more impromptu ceremonies. She had many couples call her while visiting the valley who had decided to get married on a whim, so she wanted to offer a creative solution for couples looking to tie the knot in a unique way. Pop Up Weddings are becoming popular because you can have something fun and adventurous but don’t have to compromise the quality of the day.
