On Friday, May 1st, come grab some free coffee from our friends at Steadfast and chat with Beth Lawrence, owner/designer/founder of Freshie & Zero, as well as a lauded wholesale and tradeshow extraordinaire, during the week's installment of The Skillery's Office Hours.
About Office Hours:
On Friday mornings, we invite Skillery members and friends in for free drip coffee and coworking with a bonus educational component we call Office Hours. Each week, a local or visiting pro — from content creators to PR veterans to busy shop owners — will meet, greet, share valuable biz wisdom and answer your questions, in a casual group setting. It’s our weekly get together with local professionals, and you’re invited.
About the Host:
Freshie" is Beth Lawrence’s nickname, and Zero is her Jack Russell Terrier. Together, they are Freshie & Zero, a handmade jewelry line founded in 2006. Beth is a born and raised Nashville native. She attended Harpeth Hall and graduated from Belmont University in 2000 with a BFA in Studio Art.
She began her creative entrepreneurial career at the ripe old age of 10, peddling her plastic jewelry in her neighborhood door-to-door (even landing a boutique sale by age 11!). Beth’s earned a wealth of experience in the retail and wholesale world through the years. She's been on all sides of the retail industry: first as a gallery/retail worker, then a store buyer, followed by a manufacturer's sales representative before starting her own handmade business. With Freshie & Zero, she worked the craft show circuit for many years until focusing on the wholesale world as she began growing her family. She has attended over 20 wholesale trade shows and has sold her jewelry to hundreds of retailers including Anthropologie and Uncommon Goods. Her studio just moved into the Track One building in the vibrant Wedgewood-Houston district.
