Hosful Collective gives space to Ohio fashion designers and makers

For many new business owners, the pandemic represented a chance to do something they had long wanted to do, or turn a hobby into a full-fledged operation.

But for Lindsey Drahos, the pandemic led to the desire to land a hand toe small retailersfacing challenges.

She opened Hosful Collective on Parsons Avenue in Olde Towne East in August, 2020, right when other businesses were shutting down. It was an unsure time, but it became an opportunity for Drahos to provide an accessible pathway for small businesses to make it into a storefront.

“We created a space to give other entrepreneurs a chance to have a brick and mortar and a storefront, without the overhead of a storefront,” Drahos said. “So that when all these stores may have been closing, they were able to take their brand and put it into a space without having to pay the full rent.”
