This video was commissioned by Etsy for their Tenement Museum partnership. Through the Museum's "Shop Life" exhibit, visitors explore the immigrant businesses once located at 97 Orchard Street, where communities worked, shopped, celebrated and struggled for more than a century. The exhibit features a re-created 1870's German beer saloon, as well as an interactive "sales counter" where visitors select audio and visual media clips to explore the stories of turn-of-the-century businesses. The Etsy shop Marble & Milkweed is owned by Briar Winters. She manufactures her products in her Lower East Side apartment, and discusses the connections between her neighborhood's community and the relationships between her international customers through an online marketplace.
