Welcome to One.
One. was created 3 years ago to be a feel-good boutique that not only cares about fashion but has a huge heart for humanity as well. We carry many fair trade products and give-back brands. Through these brands, we are able to give back locally and globally. Each month 10% of all sales are donated to a mission project in the community or globally.
I bought One. in June of 2017. I had loved it since the beginning, but owning it was not on my radar. I was an ambassador with Noonday Collection for several years. It was during that time that I learned about fair trade, ethical fashion, living wages, and so much more. My eyes were opened to the purchasing power of a dollar.
This was a hard realization, because I had always been a bargain hunter. Once you realize that your bargain may contribute to hungry families and children being placed for adoption because parents couldn't care for them, you can't un-know. At One., we want all our artisan partners locally and globally to be paid fair and living wages for their work. We value the craftsmanship in what they do, and we value them.
I always thought that I would be a missionary. There was never anything else that I saw myself doing or really wanted to do. Eventually God closed all those doors and brought me back to Columbia/Spring Hill. (Did you know that I'm a graduate of Spring Hill High School? Anyhow, all of those callings and that knowledge culminated this summer when I bought One.
I get to advocate for our makers, and encourage you along the way. There is not much that makes me happier than getting to share with you about who made our products and the great work that the companies we work with are doing.
Thanks for stopping by.
Shop with love,
