About Us

Sugar Sidewalk was founded in 2012 as a handmade jewelry business. Selling primarily on Etsy and a couple local markets it’s evolved into a multi-channel, handmade gift business. Our product collections are intentionally anchored to your life moments, events and celebrations. 

For many years, Hope Schoenbacher (our founder) worked as an executive in the tech world. She focused on measurably improving the customer experience for some of the world’s largest companies by implementing innovative and cutting edge technologies paired with operational process improvements. 

After almost a decade of running Sugar Sidewalk she’s committed to her brand promise of being super easy to do business with. She sources the highest quality & ethically made materials while constantly improving her processes as a way to mitigate cost. Each and every product is hand made by the Sugar Sidewalk team in their studio located near Seattle, in WA state.

When she started Sugar Sidewalk, Hope had an opportunity to create the kind of business that didn’t sacrifice quality for cost, or care for creativity. She counts herself lucky to be trusted by her customers to create personal pieces and gifts for them, their family, and their friends. She has been honored to work with them and hopefully, one day, with you!
