Project Description

T3 Beauty Supply Storefront
My mother and aunts came by to see the progress of the store.
My name is Tiara Tillmon. I live in Auburn, NY, the chosen hometown of Harriet Tubman. I am one of her living descendants. The town of Auburn is small and is predominantly white. The town has evolved a lot in the past years. We have more minorities who live here now, but the resources available to our population are still limited. I started selling eyelashes to provide a service that is not offered here in Auburn. From the eyelashes, I then started to invest in braiding hair and beauty supplies. There were no Black-owned beauty supply stores here in Cayuga County that cater to our community's needs. Therefore, the community had to drive almost 45 minutes to Syracuse/Onondaga County in order to meet basic hair care needs and buy products. There are many people who live in town but don't have the transportation to get to Syracuse.  I started to sell products out of my home in order to meet the needs of my community. After months of growing my product inventory and establishing a customer base, I decided to start looking for a storefront. I was able to find a small yet intimate place to set up shop. I've been funding my business from my personal funds. If granted with crowdfunding I will use the funds to stock the inventory, Purchase a POS system and pay the bills at my storefront location. I'm a team of 1 at the moment, I do have my family who supports me and helps me when needed. I have many people in the community who already support my business and are consistent shoppers. I'm very grateful for them and will even more grateful when I can officially have a grand opening for my Beauty Supply store.
