Bringing Local Businesses Together
Based in Scottsdale, AZ, our brick & mortar store features some of the best and brightest local makers and creative entrepreneurs in the area. Filled with creativity, community, and maker magic, it’s become more than a marketplace. Now, we’re on a mission to bring the same amazing products and energy online to share with a wider audience.
We believe in relationships over transactions.
There are so many companies, big and small, out there that focus on making the sale. But, at The Merchantile, we know you’re not just buying a beeswax candle or a marble coaster - you’re buying the person, their story, and their passion. Many times, the only way you get that experience is browsing through a market. So, when we created a virtual addition to our Scottsdale store, we really wanted to bring the energy and engagement that come with a true marketplace experience online. When you visit The Merchantile Online Shop, you’ll find gorgeous goods from small businesses local to the Scottsdale, AZ area. No impersonal mass-produced items or drop shipped products. As entrepreneurs (and shoppers!) ourselves, we know the importance of transparency. Every merchant goes through an approval process to ensure they uphold the level of quality, care, and integrity we all deserve.
We couldn’t talk about The Merchantile without mentioning the founders. Kim launched the modern multi-purpose marketplace that would become The Merchantile of Scottsdale (where all the magic began) alongside her supportive, uplifting husband. Although he’s no longer part of the day-to-day operations, Eugene remains her biggest cheerleader and a constant source of inspiration. It’s impossible not to smile and feel energized when you’re around this bubbly, driven renaissance woman. Her love and passion for The Merchantile shine through every day.
