Cooperation Over Competition

It's our 5th Year Anniversary in the Historic Hill District!! Celebrate and join us in launching our consumer co-op model, via the Cooperation Over Competition Campaign. Through Ujamaa, individuals, families and other enterprises can help seed and strengthen the small businesses and artisan groups that bring the quality products we desire to be made available in our local community via our artisan boutique in the Hill District's commercial corridor. By investing $100 in cooperation with our collective, community supporters will obtain a membership card and save every time they shop at the boutique or marketplace events or take classes. Join us and become a oart of a cooperative network that helps to create vibrant community, socially and economically, bolstering the people and products that offer a fair exchange of value.
