"When you buy something from an artist, you're buying more than an object. You're buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You're buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You're not buying just one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul...a small piece of someone else's life." -Tim Hagerty
Here at the shoppe, we prioritize art and community. As a co-op, our space is self-sustaining- meaning, we have no employees. Our artists volunteer their time to run the space, and in turn receive 100% of their sales. So everything our customers spend, goes directly back to the artist to fund their new work.

General Contact Information: Who are you? Introduce yourself to us!

a message from Kaitlin, owner of the collective.
"We are so excited to see what 2019 has in store for Mount Prospect. The future of our downtown is so promising, and our vendors and I wanted to be a part of that. Our shoppe is focused on promoting art and community to Mount Prospect; we want to be a real player in the community and help bring people together through the joy of art, handcrafted products, and community focused events while reminding our customers to ‘shoppe local’." - Kaitlin Skye Collins
