For all things outside of food
Humboldt Made and the Clarke Museum are excited to announce the Grand Opening of our new Visitor Center on October 14 from 1 to 6 in Clarke Plaza! Here is a quick look at what we are up to.
Today we're catching up with Wrangletown owner Pat Knittel. Wrangletown opened 2 years ago in the up-and-coming Creamery District in Arcata.

They are located at 1350 9th St, Arcata and they are open Friday 3–8PM, Saturday 1–8PM, and Sunday 12–5PM.
"We seem to always be grasping for ways to hold on when we really should be letting go. These beads seems to bridge the two. Hanging close to one’s heart so we can continue to move about our lives untethered to our grief, but instead accompanied by it, like an old friend or a true love, holding our hand through infinity.”"
Redway, CA— How does a small organic dressings and sauce company from Humboldt County get noticed in the multi-billion-dollar organic market? One way is by attending Expo West, the largest natural products trade show in the world. Held annually in Anaheim, 2017 saw a record 80,000 attendees and nearly 3,000 exhibitors. That’s a lot of food samples. Many local companies attended with Humboldt Made, including first-time attendee, Sue’s Organics. Sue’s Nutritional Feast Dipping Sauce was selected as one of four NEXTY Award Finalists in the Best New Condiment category.
Experienced business folks often advise the aspiring entrepreneur to try and avoid entering into partnerships. If you can, go it alone. In the formative stages of a young business there are always tons of often messy, difficult issues to deal with. Complicating the situation with the opinions, wants, and needs of partners can be awkward if not downright contentious. One might think that whoever has the greatest percentage share of the pie can more or less have his or her way over partners, but that doesn’t account for the emotional investment that active partners make in a new endeavor. Someone who owns a 15% stake is likely to have every bit as much emotional skin in the game as someone who owns 30 or 40%. And that same minority share-holder just might have some brilliant ideas about how things should run .
