About Us

Margin Colab was created because the space existed. Founder, Andi, always used to say that if she ever just had the space, she’d make good use of it. 

Well, through a turn of events, 1700 sq ft of one of her businesses’ warehouses became freed up. When she realized she had space, she knew it was time to invite other makers and vintage lovers in.

Margin Colab is just a space. It’s a space for those who don’t usually have space, the marginalized on the fringes.

You’re welcome here.

OUR TEAM

Margin Colab is nothing without its killer team behind it. Shoshanna is crucial in coordinating all of the main event details and making sure all of Margin’s makers and vendors are well taken care of.

Kaitlyn and Kelsey, our Sorum sisters, keep the ship afloat and sailing efficiently. We’d sink without their tireless efforts with Whiskey Business and beyond.

If you need help or have questions at any of our events or about any of our services, these women will take good care of you.

Meet The Founder
ANDI

Whiskey Business founder, Andi, never imagined she would be in the world of bath and body goods, manufacturing, or even retail. After starting her first business offering graphic and web design services at 16, she went on to run a marketing business while attending CSU Long Beach and then beyond. She also ran and managed many other businesses, ranging from photography, private event bartending, a skateboard magazine, and a few more along the way.

Andi grew up in California, and spent a lot of time traveling all over the country. Whiskey, Ink & Lace, the flagship brand of Whiskey Business debuted in late 2013 on the coast of North Carolina where she was living at the time, and already it has brought her from the east coast to the Northwest as the business expanded. The business spent a year in Portland, then moved to Seattle as it grew.

Whiskey Business’s brands include over 250 handcrafted products, sold online and through retailers around the globe.

Andi’s eclectic past of traveling, making, and doing, along with a heavy interest in all natural alternatives to commercial health products lends to the diversity, quality, and excitement of Whiskey Business.
