The Beginning: a Store with Heart and Purpose.
When we were living in Taiwan, we ran a charming thrift store called ‘Re-store.’ Our store offered a variety of second-hand goods, along with craft beer, coffee, bakery treats, and occasionally home-cooked meals. In the future, I’ll share the inspiring story of our store.
Unlike other thrift stores, every item we sourced or received as a donation carried its own unique story. We weren’t just selling objects; we were finding homes for each beautiful soul, ensuring that the story of each item could continue. Additionally, one of our primary goals was to use our store’s profits to give back. We donated 10% of our income to various charities and non-profit organizations. Over a five-year period, we contributed tens of thousands of dollars to 21 different causes. Although the second-hand business was challenging, and we struggled to cover our costs, we still managed to give away at least 10% of our earnings. To me, those donations were the true profit.
From Re-store to Much Love Storee: A Journey of Giving Back and Creating Change.
After relocating to the US, I made the decision to start a company with a similar philosophy: making money to give back. Instead of a physical store, we are launching an online shop that will offer products aligned with our core values of Love, Family, and Sustainable Living. We will feature designs, arts, handmade crafts, coffee, and other items that embody our beliefs. In the future, we plan to invite like-minded families to join us as vendors, allowing them to sell what they love. We also want to encourage our children to be creative and become young entrepreneurs, learning the true value of earning money and the importance of giving back. It’s not about luxury lifestyles but rather returning to the basics of human needs and fostering genuine human connections.
