#SMALLBIZREALTALK Series: Mountain Standard Goods
"On-site insight from real, local small businesses"
**We are headed to check out Mountain Standard Goods!!
"Sisters, business partners, mischief makers.
By curating a mix of vintage and new products, this allows us to provide the best quality product at a good price. “They don’t make em’ like they used to” - by purchasing a well-made vintage item, you are not only getting the lasting quality, but helping reduce the carbon footprint of fast furniture and fast fashion waste. Buying an eco-friendly item will not only last much longer, the quality and materials are thoughtfully sourced and made by a craftsperson who is paid fairly and treated respectfully.
Did you know that every year, an average of 70lbs of clothing are thrown out per person. 13 million tons textile waste worldwide – 95% could be reused or recycled 9 million tons of furniture to landfills each year “fast furniture” & “fast fashion” could be majorly reduced by buying a second hand piece or from a brand that has eco-friendly and sustainable values.
We love the thrill of the thrift and we see the value in giving a used product a second life. In addition to curating vintage collections, we want to share with our community how buying new items from “slow-fashion” brands can impact communities around the world, starting with yours. Stop by for a gander at our fun, curated selection of gifts, apparel and vintage goods!"
Come join us for this 2022 monthly series where we visit local small businesses and learn about the ins-and-outs of what it takes to be a local entrepreneur! Hear the good, the bad, and the ugly -- the "real talk" -- directly from local small business owners at their business location.
Mountain Standard Goods was apart of Downtown Partnership's Holiday Pop-Up Program - come to learn more!
This will be a hybrid event. We will also be broadcasting this event live on Facebook.
The goal of this series is to strengthen our local entrepreneurial ecosystem by networking, championing small businesses, listening to their stories, and most importantly, learning from each other!
Thanks to a sponsorship from ABC Bank, each event in this series is free!
