Roc Made Goods is operated by two Rochester natives, Grace Bellanca and Nora Coyle. Friends, former co-workers and artists alike, Grace and Nora put together their first "Sip & Shop" event back in 2017 after seeing a desire for more art + entertainment in their Charlotte community.
Roc Made Goods' events consist of gathering local artists and their handmade goods in beautiful venues and pairing that with fun activites for the whole family to take part in! Live music, cash bars, charity raffles, DIY activity stations, photo booths, swag bags, food trucks and much, much more are all added bonuses to well round their artisan events. Roc Made Goods' events are always family friendly and free to the public to attend.
Grace is the Owner and Director of Roc Made Goods. During the day, she works full time at Black Bird Design, a Rochester local, full service design and print company.
Grace is also a mixed media artist who creates Affirmation Hoops and Recovery Gifts, under her own company, Ash + Willow Co. Her goal is to spread awareness, create conversations and help eliminate the stigmas surrounding Substance Abuse, Recovery and Mental Health.
Nora is the Assistant Director of Roc Made Goods. She works full time as an Account Manager for Mercury Print Productions. Nora has held positions with Island Photography and CL!X Studios as a graduation photographer.
