      One year ago....

      One year ago....

       

      We pressed ‘go live’ on our CSA – a Community Supported Apparel crowdfunding event where hundreds of you joined forces to raise $100k towards a down payment on a building. The home for the Youniverse – Youer’s headquarters and a place where we could start making some of our own products in our own factory.

       

      It’s been a full year of real estate adventures, temporary solutions, and tiny rentals. And the right property still hasn’t presented itself. But we’re getting ready to settle into a less temporary space that will give us flexibility to grow while we continue to hunt for a place to buy.

       

      For the last 6 months, we’ve been squished into a tiny windowless space that has decreased productivity and made it hard to interact with our local community in the way we want.

      Our current teeny tiny warehouse

        

      But we’re about to change that! Next week, we’ll be moving into a new warehouse space that we’re excited to make our own, thanks to the amazing power of community and the effort and love that you showed in helping us achieve this last year during our CSA. It’s gonna take some time to turn this place into the vibrant whimsical space of our dreams, but we’ll get there. And we can’t wait to have y’all over for a party when we do.

       

      Shipping and communication will be delayed during this move (next week) as there will be just 2 of us making this whole thing happen, so thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we go through this transition. But once we’re all set up, our speed and efficiency will go WAYYYYY up because we’ll have more space to move, and an office with WINDOWS! The warehouse portion doesn’t have much light, but our offices will! Over the last 7 years Youer has had 5 office/warehouse spaces and this will the THE FIRST with natural light. Wild.

       

      Anyways, here’s the blank canvas that we’re about to turn into a magical colorful world of clothes. The fun begins!

      A tale of two brands...

      A tale of two brands...

      I’ve always said the perfect collabs are simply making cool sh*t with cool people, and making this collection with Emma and Claire (The Salmon Sisters) has been exactly that. If I can fangirl for a moment, I have ALWAYS dreamed of making something beautiful with these two women, but thought Youer didn’t have the reach or audience to bring an equal partnership to the table. But last year, I decided to just try, and it’s a pretty wild story I think.

      2021, before you go....

      2021, before you go....

      Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about how we define growth and success and how I want to define these things for Youer in 2022. Traditionally, in business, they’re defined by numbers that trend upward. More revenue, more customers, more teammates, more more more. We’re a culture that’s obsessed with hustling but bigger numbers doesn’t always mean we’re succeeding or growing sustainably.
