Circulate to be great!


You know whats awesome? Our vendors are. We have the honor of serving some of the best makers and entrepreneurs in Milwaukee!! We are extremely thankful to everyone who has helped to spread the word and offer our opportunities to new vendors/ extending our family!! The next Market date is Feb. 10th and the FB event is live so please also feel free to invite your friends! We are also getting some print flyers to vendors who request them so they can pass out promotional materials during their business travels and social exchanges. We all work together to make sure the circle is growing stronger and stronger!


The LOVE is real

There is always special reasons and people behind the different neighborhoods and venues we choose to ‘circulate’ into. The idea is to learn more about how our city can and does work together when it comes to supporting arts, independent makers, vendors and entrepreneurs. Circulate Creative Entrepreneur Market is a facilitator of many different connections and business collaborations throughout Milwaukee. We are always looking to expand and explore new territory of a very historically, economically segregated city. How can we continue to break down barriers? How can we continue to get different folks together doing trade, services & commerce together to show and prove our unified strength? These are some of the things we ponder. Outloud.

Circulate Love & Happy New Year!

The winter solstice is regarded by many as a very powerful time for reflection and execution. A time for defining our interests and goals with focus and consideration into the new year. This year came with a full moon as well!

What are your intentions set on for 2019? How are you setting yourself and your circle up for success? It’s always great to share different practices or traditions of self care & accountability. We encourage it. We recommend it. Circulate some love this season and lets all elevate into this next year cycle of growth with a standard of sharing. You can start small!

Think of others and share the love or ‘pass the plug’ as some might say. Practice circulating the love. Share big and shine your light for the world to see because when you shine bright it naturally gives others permission to do the same. The most successful people on the globe will tell you that part of the formula for achieving abundance, is helping others and being a giver. Offer your genius to create something beautiful that you can share the world.

Soon we are going to announce an important upcoming (in between markets) event. Some of you may know that we have held several business mixer styled events, small gatherings or invite only meetings in order to help facilitate building trust and accelerating the collective sharing process. We are taking initiative and also always taking suggestions on how to better support our Circulatemke family.

We want to see everyone win! Saying it out loud and proud, sharing and circulating ❤ for you and yours this festive holiday and new year season!! Be Safe and enjoy!!

Into 2019

We are looking forward into 2019 with much gratitude. So much to be thankful for as the Circulatemke family grows and goes to new and exciting places. The engine behind our collective momentum is our unity. We continue to be so amazed at the consistency and connectivity that develops organically when creative entrepreneurs work together.

Circulatemke was started to amplify our communal economic innovation and we are proud to witness the rapid expansion of the general collaborative ‘marketplace’ model locally!! All of our calculations equal Circulation!!

‘Holiday’ shopping is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to conscious buying & spending. Also a magnificent time see some super unique work and colorful products!

Creative Entrepreneurs make it work! No matter what! Into 2019 we have a new level of investment into our Circulatemke ideas, tools and projects and we want to work together with you!!

Tis’ the season!

Talk to people!!!

It’s not a major market hack or any secret sauce, it’s simple! TALK TO PEOPLE!! Too many great connections and conversations are missed when creatives are in a shell and not really talking to people. Now, we are using ‘people’ vaguely, on purpose. You never know who you are talking to or quite honestly who you might be letting walk past with no contact. It always helps to smile, stand up and even introduce your self with a firm handshake. It may come naturally for you, but this is a HUGE challenge for some entrepreneurs and vendors. Both our shoppers and supporters also benefit greatly from networking, communicating, following up  and keeping the good conversations in circulation!

Here are 3 tips to get you talking at the next market:
1. Have your talking points or questions ready!
2. Practice sparking conversations with people you already know!
3. Don’t try to make sales , make new friends!

New Opportunities on the RISE!!

We are proud to say, at our last traditional #circulatemke Market on Black Friday 2018 we had 5 Creative Entrepreneurs new to our Market and 3 of those vendors were doing business for the first time at any Marketplace EVER!! We always encourage youth entrepreneurship and collaboration and we must say, the movement  is spreading… We are fascinated by the growth of the Circulatemke community!! It’s always a good time for your side hustle to come to the forefront , or for you to pitch that idea in public , test the concept and let’s GO! We LOVE to be the launchpad for YOU! Let us know how we can help!

We always want to go into the ‘holiday’ shopping season with things in order. Our entrepreneurs depend on it, just like our shoppers. People are looking for different things to purchase and different businesses to support. This is that time of the year that is very important for our #circulatemke network on many levels, so we appreciate everyone helping out when it comes to spreading the word and encouraging local spending, shopping small, cooperative economics and just general cross promotion on all levels.

There are many ways that you can help us help so many different businesses, families & individuals the really care about the community and want to do their part. We can and will serve together in new ways though Circulatemke.

That’s what this is all about we appreciate everyone’s support as we’re going into our next phase of development and as we are hearing feedback and suggestions we are always trying to broaden our impact and innovate. Keep inspiring and truly being a beacon of beautiful opportunity for our local creative entrepreneurs!

Black Friday official press release

(Sent to local media outlets – please feel free to forward to any media, marketing or local connections you may have!)


CirculateMKE Creative Entrepreneur Market will be celebrating 3 years on ‘Black Friday’, November 23th, 2018 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at The Vibe, 518 E. Concordia, Milwaukee WI 53212

Our first market was held in November of 2015. Since then we have held over 20 markets at different locations around the city. We welcome new vendors and customers to join in participation each time we circulate to different and new locations. Milwaukee is not the exception to cities across the country that are experiencing major growth and development. The Circulate Market ensures that the people who come from the city do not experience economic exclusion during such an exciting time of growth. The Circulate Market offers a sense of connection to local families and creators who have a wealth of knowledge and resources that keep our city rich in culture.

Local Vendors will have a variety of skin and body products, wearable art, unique jewelry, books, hand-made crafts, custom made fashion and accessory items that make great holiday gifts!

To add to the experience, The Circulate Creative Entrepreneur Market delivers something unique for its shoppers and attendees through pop up performances & demonstrations by local artists. At each market, we raffle off giveaways of goods donated by market vendors. Good food and a creative children’s area make the market both family and youth-friendly. A component of the market that we are proud of is Circulate Small where youth vendors as young as 9 years old have products and services that contribute to the distinctive atmosphere of the market. The Circulate Creative Entrepreneur Market has something for everyone!

Our shoppers pride themselves in knowing they are supporting Milwaukee based, family owned and operated businesses while simultaneously building a cooperative community. We challenge YOU to join in the effort to support the local economy by circulating dollars into the community through the Circulate Market. We ask that you consider making a pledge to make your holiday and giving purchases through local efforts that will, in return, give you an experience that you can’t find in your who’s who of corporate retail.

The Circulate Entrepreneur Market on Friday, November 23rd, 2018 is in partnership with The Vibe, a new membership-based co-working space for entrepreneurs, startups and business owners who may need office space for meetings or just to grind. The Vibe is a part of The River Works Development Corp located at, 518 E. Concordia St. Milwaukee WI 53212.

Circulate – Creative Entrepreneur Marketplace was created to provide a fun and affordable shopping alternative to the traditional retail buying and selling experience.
