So we’ve had a little change of plans… It looks like it will cost more than we thought to get the bus on the road in California (thanks to permits and an $800 minimum on taxes), so it’s just not going to be feasible for us this summer But we are not giving up on the bus! We are going to make a stronger push towards online sales and get the bus to as many markets as we can around Reno for the rest of summer and, hopefully, build enough of a following and make enough money for us to be able to have a solid summer on the bus next year!
It’s been a rollercoaster so far… with each new day bringing a couple things get us really excited but also dragging with it a few more to really bum us out. It’s unbelievable how much we have learned and we have really realized there is no substitute for just simply doing it and moving forward; no amount of planning could prepare us for everything we have run into and we are really going to make a better effort to keep our blog updated so we can bring you along for the ride. So far we haven’t done much as far as updates besides our instagram ,@theshortsbus, but in the near future keep checking back to our blog on our website,http://branchclothing.com/the-blog/ , for all the news regarding the progress of the bus (or any obstacles we run into).
But first things first, Kickstarter orders are of course the top of our list! We got some more of the shorts orders in the mail today and we will have the rest of the shorts as well as the skirts in the mail by Monday. Backpacks and shorts with side pockets will be done and shipped by Wednesday! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
Once again we thank you so much for the support and for keeping the dream of The Shorts Bus alive!
