Donated to local non-profits in 2019

Why We Give

Beginning in March of 2018, we began donating 1% of our overall sales each month to local Rabun County non-profits so that our mission can support theirs. This is on our total sales and not profit so even when there are months that we are not profitable, we will still donate 1% based of our total sales each month. This is a helpful reminder for us to ensure that our community always comes first in our decision making.

WE WANT TO BE MORE THAN A BRAND

When we first started our “brand” we never had any goals of opening a store. We simply began with the idea of trying to to tell the stories of the people and places that call North Georgia home. That loose framework has evolved into a platform that we hope continues to grow beyond a store. We count ourselves lucky and humbled and everything in between that locals from all across North Georgia and visitors from all across the state, the region, and beyond find us interesting enough to support our small business.

Because of your support, we’ve been able to raise over $50,000 for local Rabun County non-profits! Thank you for the opportunity to allow us to serve our community!
