Small-business selfie winner: The Marketplace in Cornelius

Featuring culturally-diverse home decor, jewelry, toys and more, The Marketplace at 17301 Statesville Road in Cornelius is a Christian fair trade store featuring creations by artisans from around the globe.

The Marketplace “partners with ministries around the world who are loving people for who they are and where they are at,” writes Marisa Sellman. The idea is to provide commerce opportunities to “economically and socially marginalized people” by marketing products they produce, according to the website. See more at

We’re sending Sellman a ShopTalk travel mug. Send us your selfie and you could win a travel mug, too. Use your mobile device to take candid photos of yourself in your business, showing off what you do in your environment. You can ask someone to take photos of you, too, but we don’t want professional shots. We’re looking for candids that capture the selfie spirit.
