Hi Everyone! I'm Holly, the owner of Dare to DIY.
I started my business as a cookie decorating home-based bakery back in 2016, and slowly got into custom orders and pop-up shops on my front porch. Fast forward to 2019, I started teaching cookie decorating classes of up to 35 students, moved my pop-up shops from my front porch to a partnership with Nordstrom inside of their stores, and still continued to fulfill custom orders.
In March of 2020, I became a store front owner! Being the same month everything with COVID-19 became prevalent... it was a tough start. But I have always been a hard worker and go-getter... so I used it as motivation to challenge myself to get a business up and running, even in such uncertain times.
Dare to DIY was not only a creative space for DIY workshops (like my cookie decorating classes), but I also created the space to be a small private event venue. It was perfect for events too big for mama's house, but too small for a standard event venue. My background in event coordination and event sales helped me significantly in fulfilling all areas of my dreams for Dare to DIY.
Fast forward to July 2021, Dare to DIY will now be a space to shop your favorite local vendors, 7 days a week from 12pm-6pm. We will be hosting 12 different vendors of all varieties!
Thank you for your support of my small business and hope to see you soon!
