Before we finally close the chapter of 2020 and open the chapter of 2021, I just wanted to take the time to say thank you! 2020 was a lot of different things to a lot of different people but for me it will always be the year where I opened my business, took a hold of my life and saw my community gather behind me. And for that I will always be so grateful!
Oak and Fir launched 30 days ago! And in these first 30 days we have grown our community to close to 300 members, we have surpassed our goals and we have shipped orders from Ottawa, Ontario to Richmond, BC! And I only have you to thank! With your support we are in the top 22% of Shopify stores with our weekly blog posts reaching 744 reads! These are figures that I could not have even imagined when I set up this shop in October. Watching everyone come together, orders from old friends and total strangers has changed my perspective on the community I surround myself with.
2020 has had many people, including myself, feeling alone and isolated. I could feel my circles getting smaller and smaller. I was scared. But that fear has melted since opening Oak and Fir. It has given purpose to my day and reconnected me with many who I have lost touched with or grown apart from. Oak and Fir has created a positive community. A gathering of people with the same goals and values. We all simply want to live consciously.
Oak and Fir’s goals this upcoming year are to be more inclusive and focus on you. Our community. I want to hear from you! Leave a comment below and tell us what you want to see from us in 2021. More resources? A Men’s line? A Youtube Channel? What do you think will expand our community and bring us closer together?
