TrulySanctuary MicroBoutique

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know that we are huge TrulySanctuary fans. They've kept our family in the world's best [softest!] t-shirts for over a year and a half now. In fact, you can read my very first product review on their tees, here, from back when Benjamin was rocking onesies. *sniff*

I have enjoyed getting to know Beth and Ron [and family], via social media, during this time and they're such great people. They are definitely among my favorite to work with. The products they sell are fun, unique, and high quality. We get compliments nearly every time we wear one of our TrulySanctuary tees and use our tote almost daily.

I am thrilled to share their latest [and quite exciting!] adventure -- plans to open a MicroBoutique in the heart of Portland! I'll let them tell you about it in their own words:

"TrulySanctuary Apparel is joining the eco {nomically & logically} responsible movement of creating spectacular tiny spaces. We have become so enamored with the "Tiny House" trend and plan to play on similar ideas to create our first storefront: a micro retail space located in the heart of "The Alphabet District," an emerging neighborhood connecting Nob Hill and the Pearl District in NW Portland, Oregon. Any funds exceeding our goal will be put towards manufacturing our garments locally and ethically right here in Portland!

We are Ron and Beth Remsberg, husband & wife, designers, screen printers and co-owners of TrulySanctuary Apparel. After 7 years of online retail and traveling, we have made Portland our home. Portland has a strong dedication to supporting small local business and we are constantly contacted by locals inquiring where our storefront is. We have started delivering orders locally to meet this demand. Based on the amount of local sales we are making in person and online, it's definitely time for our first storefront!

We’ve never met with investors or borrowed from banks. We are self taught in everything we do. Every aspect of our business has been grown responsibly by us through savings, hard work and patience. We are so grateful for this platform, because it’s allowing us to enlist the help of those who have already said they believe in us. We can remain debt free and pay it back creatively with the resources we already have!"

I invite you to please visit their Indiegogo campaign page. They have an awesome video, that shows a bit more of who they are as people, and their vision as a company. For the next 11 days they are fundraising, to make their dream a reality, and you can help! I encourage you to support their campaign by donating whatever you're able -- every little bit helps and is appreciated!
