Young & Rooted Apparel is a faith-based clothing brand. Our mission is to produce faith-based apparel that’s appealing, relent to today’s generation, and allows those to boldly share their faith. Young & Rooted has a motto we want this generation to grasp and it’s this, “It’s more than fashion but sharing your faith through fashion”
Young & Rooted see’s today's young people and the tragedies they are facing. More young people are being raised without father’s in the home. More young people are taking their lives due to bullying. School shootings are at an all time high. It seems like this generation of young people are angry, hurt, and feel like there is no hope for their future. However, Young & Rooted Apparel wants to be that light to this young generation in the mist of the darkness.
We sell t-shirts, tank-tops, sweatshirts, hoodies, and more. But how does this solve the problem with this generation today? I’ll tell you. Our messages within our brand gives hope in a relevant way that today’s young people can relate. We are more than just a product but a beckon of light. We share the message of hope not just on our product but though our social media content and in person. We encourage young people every day that they were created for greatness and there’s greatness within them. By wearing our brand, they have something tangible to cling onto that message and live it out every day. Young & Rooted also wants to get to the point where we offer scholarships to teens so they can further their education.
Right now, Young & Rooted Apparel products can be found through our online website, https://www.storefrontier.com/young-and-rooted ; however, I desire Young & Rooted Apparel to be mobile. I want to sell product in person. People are more likely to buy if they can feel and see product for themselves. I also desire to be face to face to give that message of hope to the young generation within our region. Therefore, my goal is this, for Young & Rooted to start out as a small business vendor and these are the expenses:
Vendor startup cost
- $1,000 to get an annual vendors license (Orland, Fl)
- $1,000 with logo and side walls
- T-shirt cost (starting off)
- $500 Product Photo shoots
The good news is that I’ve already gotten invitations to be a vendor at some up and coming events. Bad news is that some of those events I may have to cancel since I may not have the funds in time to display/promote/ sell product at these events. However, with your help you can make it possible for me to get Young & Rooted Apparel off the ground and running.
