Hi, we are so glad you're here!
Maybe you know us, or have seen our little Etsy shop, or have even been so kind as to buy one of our pretty cool items (in which case, thank you! I love you in a not at all creepy way!). But in case you don’t know us, haven’t heard of our shop, or have no idea what I’m even talking about, I’ll fill you in.
We met in 2002, while both attending the University of Southern Indiana, and fell all the way in love shortly after. We were married in 2007, and the following year welcomed our first baby friend, our wickedly clever oldest son, Lincoln Andrew. It was also around this time that I started my first Etsy shop, selling jewelry for fun. We kept it pretty chill with just the three of us for a while, maxin’ and relaxin’, but eventually that baby itch started and in 2012 we added Brooks Avery, the funniest little boy we've ever met, to the crew. A few more years passed, and in 2016 our third son, Mercer Scott made a family even bigger. My little online shop also grew, first to handmade leather purses and more jewelry, to eventually be the store it is today: Tribe and Trade.
Tribe & Trade represents what is most important to us. The tribe is us, our family of favorite people that make every thing awesome, while the trade is our amazing business that allows us to follow our dreams.
Our tribe is homeschooling, gardening, farmers markets and lots of fun.
Our trade is unique designs that we love and hope you will too.
Thanks for stopping by.
