Interview Tidbit: Megan Brewster & Erin Waxman of Art Star

On this exciting book journey we have the pleasure of interviewing nearly 100 women who are running interesting, inspiring, and innovative companies. While we of course will be including lots of details in the book and discussing the interviews over the next year, in the meantime we wanted to share a few tidbits from each amazing interview!

Our second stop in Philadelphia was at the famed Art Star boutique in Northern Liberties. There we had the privilege of meeting owners Megan Brewster and Erin Waxman.

Aside from several purchases, here are a couple things we took with us:

Amy - I was so taken with how strongly they believe that being a working artist goes hand in hand with being a business owner, and also how making an impact on their community is central to their business mission. In fact, they want to eliminate the term "starving artist"!

Adelaide - Outside of the artist community, Megan and Erin have leveraged a lot of support in their local community. They are well loved by their neighborhood, the Philly press, and the Philly indy scene. Each time they have wanted to grow, change, or accomplish something they have been successful at rallying the community around them to make it happen!

Thank you, Erin & Megan!

- Adelaide & Amy
