About Anne-Marie Faiola
I’m Anne-Marie. I’m passionate about creativity and I believe it’s essential for everyone. That passion led me to found Bramble Berry Handcraft Provisions in 1998. My passion for business and creating started at a young age; I ran a small business breeding hamsters while in high school and started making and selling soap at 16. I continued selling soap at craft fairs throughout and after college. After the success of selling handmade soap, I recognized this could be an amazing business opportunity for others as well. I started Bramble Berry when I was 20 years old and haven’t looked back.
Through Bramble Berry I’m able to inspire, cheerlead, coach, and lead our 60,000 customers - most of whom are small businesses that sell soap at farmers markets. I believe that handmade is bestmade and that creativity is essential.
My passion doesn’t stop there. I want to learn everything I can about making things from scratch. In addition to business, I sit on a variety of non-profit boards and financially give back to the community. I am also an avid reader and die-hard scuba diver.
I currently reside in Bellingham, WA with my entrepreneur husband (he runs an engineering firm), and two children. My life is full, busy and sometimes hectic, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

achievable pieces, it’s easier than it sounds.

guide, and part inspiration for further thought, Best Day Ever
is divided into thirty-five easy-to-digest chapters that will tell you how to
use your power and resources more effectively.
