At the Hawaiian Airlines 10th Annual Made in Maui County Festival, every small business owner has a unique story. For married Troy and Bea Morrison of TBM Creations, it involves the COVID-19 pandemic and the Lahaina fire. In 2020, when Bea Morrison lost her job at the front desk of the Hyatt due to the tourism shutdown, the couple began a side hustle creating custom art pieces — trinket dishes, cutting boards, skateboards, surfboards and ornaments — using Troy’s woodworking skills and Bea’s designs with epoxy resin and pigment in the colors of the beach and sea.
The Maui Chamber of Commerce is now accepting Product Vendor and Food Truck Vendor Applications for the 2022 Hawaiian Airlines Made in Maui County Festival (MIMCF). The 9th Annual event will be held at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on November 4 and 5, 2022 and virtually through an online marketplace.
