SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — The Makeshift Makers Market wrapped up Sunday at the Filipponi Ranch in San Luis Obispo.

Thirty local vendors, live music, workshops and food trucks were featured at the two-day event.

Haley Sanchez of NESW Wax Co. has been making and selling candles as a hobby and later turned it into a business.

She says the Central Coast is the place to be to grow her business through events like the Makeshift Makers Market.

"We love the vibe here. There's definitely a vibe that we like to be around, and Central Coast this area is great for us and for our business," Sanchez said.

The mission of the Makeshift Makers Market is to strengthen local economies by providing accessible pop-up shopping experiences.
