How to Support Local - Wolf and Rebel Edition
The first thing I want to say here is that Wolf and Rebel is pretty much my spirit animal. With inspirational, quirky, and fun messages hand stamped on keychains, pet tags, and stickers - not to mention the "Tired Adults Club" apparel...you absolutely cannot go wrong gifting a Wolf and Rebel piece to yourself or a friend (if you can fight the urge to keep it all for yourself!) Annie from Wolf and Rebel gave us some info on her small (but amazing!) biz:
Tell us about your business and why you decided to open.
I make hand stamped keychains with sayings that range from inspirational to really sarcastic and funny. Each letter of the keychains are individually stamped by hand so there’s a lot of love and patience that goes into each one! When I first decided to open, it was all by chance. My family and I were converting a school bus into a travelling tiny home so I was thinking of ideas that I could make some income while on the road. My husband encouraged me to just dive right in and get the supplies to open and we haven’t looked back since. What business was like before COVID-19?
We did a lot of pop ups and were a lot more busier before COVID-19. We also just announced that we were opening a storefront so it was exciting times! What has business been like since the outbreak of COVID-19?
The first month that quarantine was announced, we noticed a HUGE drop in sales. It was a scary time because my business was my full time job and our main income. We also had to cancel a lot of our pop ups we had planned. That was a sad part of it because I really enjoy meeting everyone in person and collaborating with other local businesses. How will this impact your business long term?
It’s hard to say since most of our sales are online. Things are starting to pick up again, but the future of our storefront is still up in the air. We aren’t sure when we will be able to open so it’s hard and scary! How can people help? Any support is welcome! Whether thats through placing an order through our online shop or sharing our Instagram and work. You can also follow Wolf and Rebel on Facebook!
