On 17th September 2017, Indian Mumpreneurs organized their second Artisans House market at Parra Villa Function Lounge which was a great success with 26 stall holders showcasing their products and services.

Mouthwatering Indian food and brilliant dance performances added zest to the day. Doors opened at 11 AM and crowd started to drop in. By afternoon, the venue was jam-packed with visitors checking out different products to complete their festive shopping.

Julie Owens, Federal Member for Parramatta was one of the first visitors to arrive. She spent time with the vendors to learn more about their products and buy some of the items on sale. Next to arrive was Councilor,  Reena Jethi who also drew the raffle prize winners.

Reena congratulated the super energetic team of women behind Artisan’s House Market and added, “ It was a splendid showcase of products and ideas”.

Councillor,  Sameer Pandey also encouraged the vendors.

First Artisans House market was organized in April and for the very first time they had 19 stall holders.  This was the second market and the number of stall holders grew to 26. This time it was the collective effort of six mumpreneurs including Shipra Tewani,  Deepa Das Gupta, Pritika Manocha , Meena Mahanty Kumar,  Mahalaxmi and Mansi K Bhatia.

Mansi K Bhatia while sharing her experience said, “  Artisan’s House Market is  for all the Indian Mumpreneurs.  Indian Mumpreneurs – as the name suggests is a group of like-minded Indian business women  who came up with an idea to form a networking group on Facebook almost a year ago. Shipra Tewani is the women behind this initiative and in the last one year, this Facebook group has grown to 923 members.”

Speaking about the Artisan’s House Market concept Mansi said, “Few of the women from Mumpreneurs group  came together and decided to come up with a unique sort of market where all the Indian women who have small businesses and are  running their business either from  their home premises or have only online presence  will get a chance  to showcase  their business then whether it is  artifacts, jewelry , handbags, purses, Indian dresses , shawls,  organic  soaps or what so ever  business they own,  under one roof  and Artisans House Market came into being.”

“Coming up with such markets is a very fresh concept.  This not only provides a chance to the vendors to come along and showcase their products and services, but also saves  customer’s time as they get to choose from so much of variety under one roof,” she added.

Shilpy Jain, owner of Desire Creations and also a stall holder at Artisan’s House Spring Market  while sharing her experience said , “ Desire Creations showcased glamorous ensembles at the Artisan House Spring Market.  Vision of Artisan’s House vision is to  showcase women power and promote local small businesses. I must say they have truly achieved it. It takes lot of effort and time to make such events successful. Through this platform I have met many inspiring mumpreneurs and looking forward to have meaningful friendships with them.

Description of the India Mumpreneurs group  itself says, “Owning your own business and raising children at the same time can be really stressful, not to mention being stuck at home for a lot of the time working on the computer is so isolating! This is a group for Indian Mums who own their own business to meet each other, network, motivate, learn from each other’s experience, have a laugh or two and even vent frustrations! Let’s support each other without being judgmental and achieve our business dreams as happily as possible” and this is what these Mumpreneurs are trying to achieve as well.

Continuing the tradition set by the last event, Artisan’s House Spring Market  collected gold coin donations with the Harman Foundation being the beneficiary this time around.
