The Story behind Roc Made Goods


Grace Bellanca, Founder/Director

Roc Made Goods was founded in 2016 by a few fellow co-workers and friends, each with a different talent and a desire to shine a light on art & making in the Charlotte neighborhood. Originally named “Sip and Shop Charlotte” we mainly did it for fun, a creative outlet and a little extra cash. At a certain point within that first year, I really fell in love with our little operation and while everyone else still enjoyed our shows as a hobby, I was ready and willing to take the necessary steps in order to make this business flourish. 

I focused on honing our small seasonal shows into something special for everyone to be involved in, makers and customers alike. By providing live music, a bar, raffles, games and more, it makes our events fun for the whole family. Living in Charlotte for the past 10 years I have a desire and hunger to bring more life to our area, to provide an art scene, to give back to our community, to get people excited. By specifically only choosing Charlotte venues, we try to show that there’s more to our area than meets the eye, that there is beauty and life here and we want you to see that too.

"Spectacular event EVERY time"

I am so impressed with the level of organization, thought and care put into each craft show. Roc Made Goods puts on a spectacular event EVERY time, and draws together a beautiful blend of artisans (and people)! Grateful to have been considered to take part, and to witness first hand to growth and blossoming of a beautiful organization. 

Thanks Grace for all that you bring to our community!♥
