Micro-Enterprises at HANDmeUPs

What is a Micro-Enterprise?

Micro-Enterprise is defined as a business with no more than five employees and start up costs of $35,000 or less. In the majority of micro-enterprises, the owner is the sole operator and worker, leading many to refer to this phenomenon as self employment. 


HANDmeUPs Thrift has helped individuals with Autism and/or other intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD) exhibiting their works in the store. We provide an opportunity to have their individual artwork available for sale to the public.

We presently have space available. If you are an individual with Autism/IDD living in the Triangle area, and are interested in seeing your work displayed and available for sale at HANDmeUPs Thrift, please send an email to Anna Cunningham.
