Jennis and Fareed debuted their visual art & lifestyle concept at MTP this past Sunday...Beautiful Mess Art Collective! Partners in love and business, this is their third (yes third) launch with us and we couldn't be more happy and proud of them! ๐Ÿ‘
โšก๏ธ
Jennis and Fareed are no strangers to MTP! Jennis has been bringing our MTP regulars (and staff) his famous "BEST FKN COLD BREW", Healing Elixirs, and of course, his "BEST FKN DONUTS" via @melrosemixology for 7 years now, and together they launched their first baby at MTP, where they create their own unique, luxury tea blends for tea snobs all over.
โšก๏ธ
Over the last 6 months, Jennis and Fareed were really going through it, especially mentally (something many of us can relate to). So they decided to channel all of their anxieties, fears, hopes and dreams into creating what they love mostโ€”art...specifically, "Euphoric Art" as they like to call it. Last week had its MTP debut, showcasing all of the conceptual pieces (artwork + lifestyle essentials) they've created with intention and love, designed to elevate and bring joy to your personal space. Every piece is part of its own collection, with the purpose to question your deepest desires, and heighten your spiritual intelligence. Jennis and Fareed have designed this art collective to be accessible to everyoneโ€“โ€“original pieces start as low as $20! And EVERY single piece is a handmade originalโ€”NO PRINTS, ever! Custom order requests welcomed!

Cullanete of Little Pieces was smizing, (smiling with her eyes), all day this past Sunday as she was so happy to be back at MTP!
โ 
Cullanete launched Little Pieces at the Melrose Trading Post back in 2014. She describes Little Pieces as ethical and sustainable lingerie for like-minded women of all backgrounds, body types and ages. Culanette pivoted her business model back in March, creating her successful "The Masque" and "The Masquette" face covering lines. โ 
โ 
She started a "Small Help Small Face Mask Donation Project." Over 700 masks to date have been sewn and donated to those in need at local homeless shelters, senior centers and medical facilities. Her masks are lightweight, form fitting and made from soft lingerie fabrics that often match other pieces in her collection. Her masks are very stylish, high quality and very beautiful!โ 
โ 
Cullanette was featured on the local news on our 8/2 re-opening day. When asked "How are sales today?" by reporter she replied with a giggle, "Excellent, No Complaints!" Check out the full segment below:

Our Story

The Melrose Trading Post is a program of Greenway Arts Alliance, a community-based non-profit organization whose mission is to unite communities through art, education and social enterprise.

Every Sunday, the Melrose Trading Post offers a continuously evolving experience, including a curated selection of handcrafted artisan goods, eclectic arts and craft, vintage fashion, antique furniture and countless one-of-a-kind treasures.

The popular weekly market also features local performers including music, dance, theater and spoken word to raise much needed funding for Fairfax High School arts and leadership programming.

Through admission and vendor fees, the Melrose Trading Post has grown to become a successful ongoing social enterprise program, awarding grants to Fairfax High School organizations for sports equipment, beautification projects, teacher programs, theatre productions, and more โ€“ totaling well over eight million dollars since the Melrose Trading Postโ€™s humble beginnings in 1997.

Through Greenway Arts Alliance, the Melrose Trading Post provides formal job and life skills training to large numbers of paid and volunteer students from Fairfax High School โ€“ the first real-world job experience for many. The market also serves as an incubator to promote small community businesses and budding entrepreneurs, many of them professional artists, by providing affordable retail opportunities in a prime, high-traffic location.

The Melrose Trading Post, started in 1997, celebrated its 20-year anniversary in 2017, and continues to be celebrated as a cherished community and cultural resource.
