Vendor Spotlight: Arlo Goods
Marissa Cuevas (owner)
After taking a year-long sabbatical from working in the tech industry, Marissa Cuevas Campos of Arlo Goods decided to start her own brand, with a focus on hand-drawn artwork used in her designs. “That time away gave me a lot of clarity in the life I wanted to build, much of which revolved around drawing and painting again and creating something that I didn't see in the market.”
