Founder Den Bisema
My name is Den Bisema from Burlington, MA. I am a founder of AnnaCalisa, LLC and a mom of two little girls. When Covid-19 affected us all in March 2020, I saw the need for customization because I couldn't find a toddler's size mask that would fit my daughters comfortably. So I started sewing again. I’ll always remember 2020 and how my donations project turned into a hobby, Etsy, then to a boutique. Thankful for UpNext and Wayside Burlington, AnnaCalisa's Etsy Shop is now in a physical brick and mortar! This boutique offers customization for apparel, masks, jewelry, and personalized gifts. The name was named after my daughters and the logo is a picture of their feet reminding me to never give up and keep on showing up! They are my why.
Why did you apply for Project Pop-Up?
I support women in business, women-designers, local artist, and small batch. I am excited and grateful for Project: Pop-Up and the team behind it.
