On October 9th, 2015 Big Cartel threw a big birthday bash to celebrate 10 years of existence. It was held at Publik Coffee Roasters, and beer from local brewery Squatters and wine was provided to partiers eager to celebrate the Utah startup’s 10 years of success (an eternity in Internet business years ). Local band Color Animal provided the tunes, playing a tight set of their brand of fuzzy mellow rock. Attendees watched a video presentation which featured owners of Big Cartel stores proclaiming their love for the service, wishing Big Cartel many more years of success.
Started in Salt Lake City by Matt Wigham, Big Cartel provides bands, artists and others an easy way to put their goods online to be purchased by fans.
