About the Bright Orange Poppy

Hello Poppies!

The Bright Orange Poppy is here to support and build our community because of the wonderful, original, creative talent that is all around us. We write about the people behind your favorite music, photographs, books and paintings; the ones who brighten the world one day at a time through their hard work. 

Every day we discover new artists and entrepreneurs right next door. Sharing their stories helps you learn how much of an impact it makes to shop from small business owners. Miranda Velazques of Bat Soap Crazy began making homemade soaps to stay home and support her husband who is a disabled veteran. Koni Popke, owner of 55 Bath and Body is proof that any woman can start a new passion project and career, even after retirement at age 55. These are the people that inspire us, and we know they will inspire you too. 

Our website features articles on artists, photographers, bands and more. Check out our podcast Heart of the Sierra and our Multi Vendor Marketplace to shop from vendors! Our field of poppies is only growing from here, so join us and become a vendor or subscribe for all the updates!
