"Over the past several years, American retail on the whole has faced a plethora of hurdles — but many in the industry have also come up with interesting and successful solutions.

Stationary maker Katy Sensenig Schilthuis came up with the idea for Dallas-based creators of handmade goods to collaborate and sell their items in a storefront in Bishop Arts. The Mosaic Makers Collective currently has eight makers, including Schilthuis, who will all work in the brick-and-mortar shop at 410 N. Bishop Ave..."
