About Carly & Brodie
Carly Pochop, co-owner of The Market on the Plaza has run Colorful Creations in Aberdeen since 2015. She went to school for Art Education and after 2 years of teaching quickly realized there was a gap in the community for students needing more outside school creative outlets. She has learned how to wear many hats and grow her business to a profitable sustainable creative outlet for northeastern South Dakota. She has since moved downtown two years ago and has since found a love for growing downtown. After being involved within the Aberdeen Downtown Association, Business Improvement District, The Parking Board, and 1 Million Cups Aberdeen, she quickly realized there was a gap in the community once more for locally made Aberdeen-inspired swag and gifts.
