Small Business Spotlight: The Margo Market

After 3.5 months of walking by this store daily, I was finally able to step inside this adorable Hoboken shop which instantly took my breath away. If I could redecorate our apartment, it would mimic something exactly like how The Margo Market is set up. An airy, inviting space boasting a bohemian vibe, with dashes of wicker decor and sprinkled with happy houseplants amongst the racks of beautiful apparel and gorgeous jewelry. In fact, one of the first things I noticed while window shopping was the assortment of minimalist metals displayed in the sill, all of which look very similar to my current collection of stackable diamond rings on my left hand. Needless to say, I knew there was something very special about this store.

After getting to know Maggie, owner of The Margo Market, and asking her where she got basically everything to decorate her store (from the clothing racks to the light fixtures and of course, the nursery where she got the plants), I learned that absolutely every little thing (decorative + merchandise) in the store is ethically sourced from independent artisans. Not one item is from a mainstream retailer, but handmade specially by other small businesses from all over the world!

I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to partner with Maggie’s beautiful store, considering how much of an impact COVID-19 has had on small businesses of all kinds. Maggie did a terrific job modeling all of the clothing available for online & curb-side pickup from her store; now with NJ finally in Phase 2, The Margo Market has officially opened its doors to allow customers to shop in-store once again (3 people inside at a time, by social distancing at the 25% capacity standards.) However, you can still continue to shop online or by curbside pick-up if you prefer!
