Dickinson launched its Small-Business Directory in 2020 as a way to celebrate, share and support alumni-owned enterprises. Businesses are submitted by alumni and organized by category, ranging from home goods and health to sustainability and charitable services.

There are now more than 200 listings in the directory, and we’ll highlight a few of these businesses in each issue of Dickinson Magazine. Here are a few from the home goods, arts and crafts category, which has more than 40 businesses listed!
