My journey as a women’s luxury clothing designer began in 2000 after graduating from The Academy of Design in Montreal. I created a line for myself that was versatile, fun to wear, and allowed me to jump on my bike to go to a yoga class then meet a friend for dinner. As I wore my own creations, women of all ages and sizes would approach me to ask where I had purchased my outfits.

This inspired me to launch Donna Beth, a line of elegant, stylish and original clothes for all women to wear. I pride myself on creating timeless and well-made clothes, always maintaining a balance between luxury and comfort. I work with a wide range of textiles, carefully selected, hand-cut and sewn in my New Jersey design studio, that will take you from morning to night without having to change.

I find meaning in putting my best into my designs - not just quality products, but quality experiences and relationships with my amazing, dynamic clients. I LOVE what I do with all my heart! That is why I created my brand and on-line store – to offer original, exciting pieces to suit the diverse lifestyles of women everywhere!

I look forward to returning to The Marketspace at Westfield this weekend. The funky, beautiful space in Downtown Westfield is a perfect match for the vibe of my designs. Stop by to try on a few of my pieces or contact me for a custom fitting.

Donna Beth LLC will be at this upcoming events!

Emily Gunselman - Birch House Candles

Hello! I am Emily Gunselman, owner and creator of Birch House Candles. I am a wife and mother of 2 and I craved having something to call my own. Out of a love for beautiful things and an obsession with candles, I began to develop a handmade soy candle luxury that anyone and everyone would be excited to gift and keep for themselves. The journey has also inspired me to educate on the benefits of burning soy and the self-care aspect of relaxation that comes with burning a candle.

Birch House Candles is a small-batch hand-poured soy candle company. Each candle is made entirely by hand. We use renewable U.S. grown soy wax, which burns cleaner, eco-friendly and non-toxic cotton wicks and premium phthalate-free fragrance oils. We sell a 11.5 oz glass candle and a 8oz tin in a variety of seasonal fragrances. A few of our best sellers are the sweet grapefruit, which is an uplifting blend of tangerine and grapefruit, and in the fall our apple maple bourbon is a huge hit, mixing the classic apple scent with an unexpected maple and bourbon twist. So many exciting fragrances to make your house feel like a home! Each purchase is packaged in a silver bag with bow and label, perfect for easy gifting!

I am super excited to learn about Marketspace Vendor Events and partner with them to boost my customer base as well as other crafters in the community. My goal for my brand is to broaden my customer reach and become a known soy candle company. It is refreshing to see a company like Marketspace for the sole purpose of making better events for customers and vendors alike. I look forward to see how this community will evolve. Thanks for including me!

Kimora Beaupierre-Liberati - Sucre Body Products

Sucre came about one very broke Christmas season while I was in grad school. I committed to making my gifts, as they would be more thoughtful to both my loved ones and my pockets. 

Throughout the years, Sucre underwent several logo changes and formula changes until arriving at where we are today. The most substantial change was the conscious effort to carefully select only simple natural ingredients for each body scrub. In my daily life, I try to live relatively healthily, and have a love for multipurpose household and pantry items.  I’ve been known to eat half of an avocado, and then use the other half for a hair masque!  Therefore, it is no surprise that Sucre Body scrubs use nature’s exfoliators, moisturizers, and scents to smooth and condition the skin while invigorating the senses.  Sugar acts our main exfoliant, while fractionated coconut oil delivers serious moisture! Our aromatics are provided by the 100% natural essential oils used in each scrub—no ambiguous “fragrances” here! 

Sugar, coconut oil, cocoa butter, coffee, rosemary, lavender, citrus, ginger… 
What’s in YOUR body scrub?
