A space to connect and collaborate
Finding and booking an affordable event space is so challenging in the Greater Seattle area. There are so many buildings and so many people, yet we were not able to find a suitable event space to connect with the community. We want to create a comfortable and useful event space to give back to our community and continue building connections.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
A STATIONERY SHOP
Poi & Hun started in our studio apartment in 2018. We stored products next to the TV and packed orders on our dining table. In 2020, we grew and continued to hustle in the basement studio and “wareroom” of our house. In 2022, we moved into this Redmond, WA space for our first official warehouse.
While growing our small e-commerce business, we always wanted to connect with our followers and customers and realized we have the space to make it happen, so we created a mini retail shop. Since our plan is to grow into this space over the next few years, we decided to utilize the extra space to create a coworking and event space for the community to connect.
