Showin' You Some Southern Love

Our first market of the year commenced at Discovery Green's Flea by Night! We had an amazing time and an overwhelming positive response to our new Spring collection. We have been out of the market game for a second but we are so excited to be talking to you about the products we are most passionate about- our Houston shirts. Without you we wouldn't be able to continually follow our dreams and promote Houston community. Things are definitely picking up in May and June! Click our "Events" tab to find out where we will be in the next few weeks. Hope to see you there!

Got Hot Sauce on Our Racks

It’s that time of the year again! When shows take full effect before the summer sun beats down and most of us are forced to stay indoors until September. The aesthetics for our pop-ups have always had a rustic flair with the use of our vintage Samsonites. The luggage followed us to every show and endured the unimaginable- rain, sun and pounds upon pounds of t-shirts. So naturally they’re a little haggered. We had to scramble and come up with a solution that would benefit both us and you- the customer. For awhile we’ve thought about revamping our aesthetic to make our mobile shop one that’s clean and inviting.  Enter Hiyme Walter. He is a local industrial engineer who produces amazing work for designers and clients of his own. Hiyme produced two identical clothing racks that would put your department store racks to shame! They’re great, functional and exactly what we envisioned as we take our company in a new direction. Hope to see you at one of our events within the next few weeks! Big Texas Thanks!

Introduction

Hi! Thanks for visiting our new website. We are so excited about the launch of our blog and new products. We have wanted to expand our brand for awhile and we thought our J&J Wrist Wraps were the perfect way to do that. This post is an introduction as to why we created our bracelets and are moving forward with diversifying ourselves.

Our J&J Wrist Wrap was a thought that came into fruition because of our love for bracelets. Rarely do you see myself or Jaime not wearing some sort of accessory on our wrist. We knew we wanted to collaborate with a local artisan and our friend, Adriane Wiltse, was the perfect person to help our wrist wraps come to life. Creator of Adriane Wiltse Jewelry, Adriane has a great hand and eye for creating one of kind pieces. We have purchased bracelets from her in the past and knew we had to collaborate with her on our line. We chose an ampersand because it signifies unity. Our mission statement has always been to create community with our t-shirts and we wanted to continue that purpose for our wrist wraps. The bracelets are handcrafted in Houston and it was very important to us that we continued with the trend of design and manufacturing products locally.  

Keeping in line with locally produced products, we fell in love with TRUELUX Lotion Candles at an outdoor market. These candles are special because they are created in Houston and serve a dual purpose. From making your space smell great to acting as a lotion, we have used the candles for over a year and couldn't wait to introduce the line to you! 

We are currently working on our new S/S 2015 Collection and will keep you updated on that process in our next post!
