What is Brick & Motor?
Brick & Motor is a dream art project where two 20 somethings pack up their lives in a trailer towed by 2001 Dodge Durango, traveling across the United States selling handmade goods from the best artist’s we know. It’s a collective starting with work from creators in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and growing as we travel; selling at festivals, fairs, flea markets, and pop up shops. Our goal is to connect ourselves and our vendors with all kinds of creative minds and show off work that we believe in. Check out our video!
Want to read the ‘Long Version?’
Folks! Our IndieGoGo campaign has ended and we are so happy for the support we received! We overestimated our needs of asking for $10,000. To be honest, we’ve never done anything like this before! We received a ton of non-monetary donations that are helping us prep, and we can’t be more grateful. You can read more about it here. Until we announce our ‘leave date,’ we’ll be accepting donations through PayPal with all of the same perks from our crowd funding campaign.
Thank you to everyone who contributed whether it was monetary or physical items. We sincerely appreciate the support. We’ve decided to keep an ongoing donation open through PayPal.
All the same perks apply! We will be keeping you updated throughout our renovation process to show where your funds are going!
