“I am trying to provide ways for small businesses to make money,”  Winston said. “(The marketplace) is for someone who wants a brick and mortar, but does not want to pay the rent (for an entire building).”

The market’s regular days will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays to Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.

Winston is using a small section of the 700-square-foot building, a former photo studio, for her spot and so far has two vendors signed on: Loc'd N Scent  and Simply Savory by Rachel, which makes the pound cake sold at the  Chicken Spot in the Northwest Shopping Plaza at 3261 W. Siebenthaler Ave.

Winston says the marketplace has room for five additional vendors.

Fashion Remedy Mobile Boutique was launched three years ago and specializes in purses and sunglasses. 

Winston worked as a mental health technical for nine years before leaving the field to have more flexibility to raise her son who is on the autism spectrum.

“My job made me feel bad for taking off work,” she said. “You can’t feel bad for what God gave you.”
