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. Below is a list of the artists who are on display. 


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.
