💡 Vendor Spotlight 💡
At Lore, we strive to bring you bookish gifts that are not only NOT available on Amazon, but are made with care for the environment and our fellow man. Our first spotlight is on “Wsamnipat,” who handmade some beautiful pressed-flower bookmarks for us.
“Hi, I'm Sam. I am a marketing specialist, photographer, and small business owner from Nantucket Island, now in Boston, MA.
I have experience in photography and marketing with various clients and organizations throughout the Massachusetts area and have a passion for house plants, Boston sports, and crafting.
My wsamnipat marketing and photography side hustle sprouted (like my plant obsession) my craft projects during the COVID-19 Pandemic when my art started to accumulate all over my apartment. I grew up constantly making things so an abundance of artwork taking over the living room was nothing new.
I learned how to run a small business from my parents who owned and operated a little convenience store on Nantucket. From working at Lucky's throughout my childhood to making and selling beaded bracelets to my classmates for $1 (to donate to Thailand after the 2004 earthquake and tsunami!), I've always kept myself busy.
After the increased racial attacks towards the AAPI community during the Pandemic, a portion of monthly wsamnipat proceeds are donated to organizations dedicated to helping the Asian community and to stopping AAPI hate. To date, we have donated over $2000 together!
Outside of my small business, I work as a Marketing Manager for Sports Reference, am a grad student getting my MBA at Hult International Business School, and enjoy short walks to the nearest pizza place and binge-watching the Hallmark Channel.”
