Hipster Home - Who We Are
Established in the summer of June 2007: Hipster Home is a contemporary & organic home furnishings store for people with a unique interpretation of their living style not offered at larger retailers. Our goal is to offer unique, fashionable product that will stand the test of time both in fashion and durability. We are against "throwawayism" that is so prevalent in our society today. The idea that companies manufacture product that is meant to be thrown away, even if it is "green", is something we're not interested in pursuing. We prefer to offer product that is meant to last both to our fashion sensibilities and our demand for durable product. Of course we do offer "green" products but not with intent to throw it away. Hence: we are against "throwawayism" - a catch word that will be a constant theme at Hipster Home. We are offering this blog to keep you up to date on our progress and our product lines. We also want to include you into our successes and failures by listening to your suggestions on the store, our layout, merchandising, product, events, employees and direction. We want to hear from you and we will consider any reasonable suggestions that are constructive and forward thinking. We also want to share our experiences both positive and negative to create a record of our journey from a small 500 sq/ft gift store into a 1000 sq/ft furnishings boutique and now into an expansive 2400 sq/ft home furnishings store.
