Are you all tired of hearing me talk about the importance of shopping small? I sure hope not, because today I want to share a wonderful shop with you. I learned about Minted Threads through the Brand Rep community on Instagram and Facebook. The owner is just the sweetest and she reached out with a very generous offer to some of the mamas in the group. I was so excited to order my first things from Mel, but I had NO idea how wonderful the whole experience would be.
First, let me tell you a bit about Minted Threads. From their website, their mission statement:
MINTED THREADS BELIEVES IN EMPOWERING THROUGH ART AND SPEAKING OUT TO LET VOICES BE HEARD! OUR BRAND SUPPORTS AND ARE ADVOCATES FOR THOSE MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN OF SEXUAL ABUSE, THE MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE OFTEN SCARED INTO SILENCE. WE BELIEVE IN GIVING A VOICE BACK TO THOSE WHO FEEL THEY DON’T HAVE IT.
FOR EVERY CHILDREN’S T-SHIRT PURCHASE, A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS ARE DONATED TO D2L-DARKNESS TO LIGHT, AN ORGANIZATION FIGHTING TO END CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE. FOR EVERY ADULT T-SHIRT PURCHASED, A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS ARE DONATED TO RAINN-RAPE, ABUSE, INCEST NATIONAL NETWORK, AN ORGANIZATION FIGHTING AGAINST THE SEXUAL ABUSE PANDEMIC.
How amazing is this? They also participate in Project Red Balloon. Read more ab out it on their site. I just love that they do all of this! I knew I loved this shop even before my order arrived, but once it did, I was blown away.
First of all, check out this gorgeous packaging:
It’s soooo cute!
Even the tags and cards are beautiful.
I love that the mission is right there in every package.
I haven’t even talked about the clothes yet! I mean, can you believe how cute these tees are? They’re printed on my favorite tee brand for Owen, and they’re super soft and comfy. I love them and he’s adorable in them.
I’ve already washed them a couple of times, and they’re only getting softer. No shrinkage, which is awesome. The print quality is fantastic. I seriously can’t say enough about how awesome it has been to get to know this fabulous (new to me) brand.
If you’re in the market for adorable clothes for your littles (and for yourself), I highly suggest checking out Minted Threads. I’m dying for this tee for me!
I’ll be back here on the blog soon with a post that’s not so cute. I have to share with you all though. You’re going to die when you hear about our last vacation. Yuck.
