Allow The Quirky Bohemian to Continue As both Artisan & Retailer at the Farmer's Markets

Hello! My name is Carrie McFerrin and I own and operate The Quirky Bohemian Boutique in Kalamazoo, MI. I specialize in handmade jewelry and unique retail clothing that is easy to wear and body inclusive. I have participated in the Kalamazoo and Portage Farmer's Markets and experienced overwhelming success in terms of connecting with my community and growing my business.

These markets allow several different types of vendors and my booth is part Artisan and part Retailer (both allowed). Now the market has decided to no longer allow the sale of my clothing, comparing me to multi-level marketing companies such as Lularoe. I have worked hard to create this business from the ground up and am not affiliated with any other company. Allowing me to continue to sell my carefully curated collection of clothing would be supporting a woman-owned local business that promotes body inclusivity and positivity. I have already received overwhelming support from customers hoping I am able to once again sell at the markets, which has encouraged me to seek your help now. 

This is a friendly petition and I am on good terms with the market staff. I am planning to meet with an advisory board soon to see if I can convince them to allow me to continue. Please support me and let's show the board that keeping The Quirky Bohemian's clothing in the markets is what the people want! :)
