nookSTART is a business program designed by founder Colleen in 2016. This program is the heart of our retail model and specifically developed to support and accelerate the success of handmade, small businesses in retail. This program has been fully integrated into The Nooks retail platform since 2016 and has rewarded 9 makers each with a free retail nook membership. The nookSTART program combines the necessary education, support and opportunities with a retail nook presence to showcase and sell. Makers receive a nookSTART course book, access to meet ups, private Facebook Page for daily, facilitated discussion, and additional resources to support their success.

nookSTART is offered in all retail nook memberships and NOW externally to makers who do not have a retail nook with us. To join the program as an outside maker, simply select the nookSTART membership and proceed to confirming your participation. You will receive your course book in the mail within 3-5 business days.
