This black Friday we are partnering up with three women-owned, small businesses to create an immeasurable impact in each of their communities, including ours. Small businesses that share our values. That share in the idea that we are stronger together. That intentionality is woven within our brands’ ethos and that as women making our mark in the world, believe in paying it forward.
Today, with every purchase of an Elated Coupe, 10% of our proceeds will go to these amazing businesses.
Remember to Shop Small and Give Big! It’s about gift-giving with intention. With consideration. If 2020, has taught us anything is that – even when everything is taken from us, gratitude can still be found within us. It’s about celebrating everyday moments and embedding this mantra into our daily lives.
Go ahead and purchase our thoughtfully designed, handcrafted coupes and spread a little joy this holiday season. Help all our small businesses thrive!
Now meet the amazing women and their inspiring brands –

Amanda McLemore – Baguette & Butter
Born and raised in Detroit, Amanda always dreamed of becoming a chef. What she didn’t realize was that her journey through culinary schools would leave her with a need to understand where her food was coming from and what it was made of. In 2016, Amanda gave up the grocery store for an entire year, to learn to connect with the local food grown within her city. She not only learned to garden, preserve, and make many staple grocery items, but she also reduced her waste.
Enter Baguette & Butter, a virtual city built to help city dwellers learn to cook simply and sustainably in their cities. At B&B through writing, cooking, and educating, Amanda and her team help their community connect with their food in one intentionally curated space.
Here’s to making these amazing businesses part of – Your Story of Home.
