What I love about Suzy is her consistent dedication to seeking out and discovering really cool American made products that are made by amazing artisans who use mostly sustainable raw materials. Suzy is a real go-getter who while rapidly growing her online business by expanding into real stores inside of stores, and a few free-standing boutiques too, spends time coaching her vendors to help them be as successful as possible. Join me and Suzy on her journey to bring American-made goods into our homes.

More about Suzy
Suzy Ekman has dedicated her career to American-made products.
Raised in the Deep South, she spent precious time in her father’s workshop learning, making, and listening to stories. Trips through the countryside discovering potters, blacksmiths, and textile weavers, instilled a deep appreciation for makers who create beautiful products with their hands.
This early-life exposure, combined with decades of Executive management in US Manufacturing companies led to the launch of Makers Market.
Makers Market was founded on the idea of modernizing and keeping American-made goods alive for a new generation: goods that are authentic, well-designed, and sustainably produced. Makers Market celebrates the resurgence of the country’s maker movement, with its nostalgic, general store vibe and online store.
