Treehouse Collective founder Moonbeam Le May opens her new shop Saturday, September 6.

Moonbeam Le May is a maker. Like many makers, she sells on Etsy, and has a community of people around her who share and support that passion to create.

A few months ago, Le May began utilizing those community connections to host a monthly second Saturday market at a University Drive warehouse in Tempe. But rather than content herself with this sort of sporadic gathering, Le May thought bigger. Thus, the idea for The Treehouse Collective was born.

On Saturday, September 6, The Treehouse Collective will open its tiny, nondescript doors to the public, presenting an overflow of local artisans offering everything from metaphysical herbs and stones to cleaning products, jewelry, and vintage clothing. Open daily to the public, Le May hopes to offer something local and purposeful to the diverse denizens of Tempe.
