Why shop small?
In America, consumerism is king. We are constantly being convinced to spend money we don’t have on things we don’t need, and that are built to break down, wear out, and become obsolete. This entire model was designed and implemented to benefit the few at the expense of the many.
Now we have an opportunity- a chance to take that power back. We have a say in what the future looks like, and how we spend our money matters now more than ever. If we hope to dismantle a system, we can’t continue to fund it. I hope that by creating a product that’s built to last, using sustainable practices and materials, we can offer the market an alternative. Designs should last a life time- translating from season to season, without breaking the bank, and without needing to be replaced! This is what I hope the future looks like- many small businesses, all sharing in the wealth, hiring our neighbors, and contributing to our local economy. Taking the money and the control out of the hands of the wealthy few, and giving back to the overwhelming majority.
