HOW IT ALL BEGAN......
We are two Sunset District moms and good friends who met at Sunset Cooperative Nursery School ; Laura Peschke-Zingler, succulent artist and OB surfer, and Angie Petitt-Taylor, small business owner and former producer of Antique Faire In The Park.
The idea for Sunset Mercantile emerged from conversations with other moms who had dreams of turning their hobbies and passions (outside of parenting ;-)) into viable businesses but were hindered by the notion, that to do so one would need a brick and mortar. Fueled with an awareness of the need for a pop-up venue to support these blossoming business ideas as well as give support to already established local small businesses and the need for more unique and family friendly events in the western side of our City...we founded Sunset Mercantile, "a festive pop-up open-air metropolis" in which we invite one and all to Come Eat, Drink, Shop, Play, Connect and BE LOCAL!!
