Our Story

We met when we became neighbors and our 3 kids became instant friends. After just a few months we knew we wanted to go into business together. We discussed so many different ideas and ended up merging them all into 1 to start Moonlight Makers on February 2nd 2015!

We built our website, bought and renovated our short bus and hit our first festival in that May. We have spent weekends in the season going to Events and Shows with the bus ever since! Online orders kept us busy shipping during the week, screen printing on our kitchen counters kept us busy at night. We started drawing more and more designs and launched our brand into the wholesale market.

Christmas 2016 we hosted a Seasonal Pop Up Shop at 25 Rankin Ave in Downtown Asheville and we loved the feeling of having a store! When an opportunity presented itself the following May we decided to Pop Up in the same space for the Summer. We hired our first help, the lovely Caleigh, and we took our screen printing set up out of our kitchens, our warehouse out of our basements and we fell completely in love with having a location and a growing team.

On Halloween 2017 we moved across the street into a 4500sq ft gorgeous old photography studio. As of summer 2018 we have 19 people on the team, our products are in 65 Stores Nationwide, we have 80+ fun designs, we do a little custom printing for local businesses and we are about to have our 6th kid between us! 

Life is busy and full, we love love love what we do and we hope you do to :)

Our Name

We often get asked where the name Moonlight Makers comes from :)

We brainstormed non-stop for about 2 days coming up with all sorts of crazy ideas. We really loved words like handmade, asheville and makers/ makery. When we realized that we mainly work after our kids go to bed and because we had day jobs like some of our guest makers "Moonlight" came into the mix we realized we were all moonlighting as makers. The first time we said Moonlight Makers it stuck! 

Our original logo was our 2 houses next to each other but a few weeks later we bought the bus and the bus became true and lasting identity!
