Project Description

Truly Rachel is an online shop which offers handmade jewelry, fashion accessories and home decor pieces. Featured in featured in Essence, Macy’s Shop finalist and Raw Artist and Makers NYC. Created by Rachel Tomlinson, a first-generation Haitian American who always dreamed of being a journalist and business owner.

This company is built on a passion to give back to struggling communities. We offer beautiful pieces to create a welcoming atmosphere and fun pieces to liven up any look or space. A portion from selected sale campaigns goes toward enriching a life and giving back to organizations like Eva’s Village, Lighthouse Pregnancy Center and Hands and Feet Orphanage in Haiti.

There is a need for beautiful, personalized, handmade pieces that tell a story and are meaningful. I hand design jewelry, mugs, apparel and wood personalized (coming soon) pieces. I also believe that many Black and minority women are dealing with grant and start up shortages which limits our growth and overall progress. We lack the access to share our businesses with angel investors to expand our business. This opportunity to expand my business would allow me the chance to hire or offer apprenticeship to other college students through exposure to entrepreneurship.

I am seeking funding to purchase products, to cover pop up shop space fees in Montclair and Jersey City where majority of my customers are. The pop up fees to be a vendor are pricey and affect my profit margin. I am the sole proprietor of Truly Rachel and I have a family member help me set up at pop up events.

 My online shop offers handmade pieces, jewelry, fashion accessories and home decor pieces. These products open my customers to luxury inspired pieces without breaking the bank. My customers feel a boost of confidence after understanding how they can add a flare of fashion to any outfit and hotel-like ambience to any space.

 

I really appreciate my supporters and customers. They are the reason I have been in business for so many years. Thank you for reading this and taking a look within my business and dreams. You mean a great deal to me and creating a legacy for my children and generations to come. With your support you are leaning in and helping the little girl in me who dared to believe and not to quit.
