Hunt & Gather Mobile Shop - STRETCH GOAL!

$10,200

STRETCH GOAL #1! 

We are so excited to announce that with 9 days left to go in our campaign, we reached our goal of $7,000! We have decided to add a stretch goal of $10,000 for the remainder of the campaign and are confident that we can do it!

With the extra $3,000 that we hope to raise, we will be able to afford the maintenance fees in addition to the painting and upfit costs. 

     With a focus on local as well as emerging makers and designers, we hope to bring craftsmanship and thoughtful design back to our customer. With fast fashion and cookie cutter design becoming such a predominant part of our culture, our hope is to create a sense of connection between our customers and our featured designers by shifting the focus from quick and cheap back to quality artisanship. 

     We want to bring small businesses back to the forefront by literally bringing them to the streets of NYC. Hunt & Gather is a mobile shop that intends to do just that.  Specializing in women's apparel, accessories and home/lifestyle design, we at Hunt & Gather are excited to bring you local and USA made products from emerging artisans through our mobile shop that has the ability to be anything but local.

     You might be asking yourself "what do you mean a mobile shop?".  Imagine a step van that has been completely gutted and cleaned out, and renovated to resemble what we all recognize as a brick and mortar store.  The inside/back of the truck will have shelves, clothing racks, display cases and even a fitting room.  We will also have an area that will be designated for carrying out transactions.  AND there will still be room for several people to walk around and shop comfortably!  The outside will be repainted with bright colors and our logo, as well as our website and social media information so that people will quickly be able to identify who we are and follow where we are going!  

     The funds that we raise through this campaign will go directly towards purchasing a truck.  Our goal is to raise $7,000 in order to purchase a late model step van.  Any additional funding that we raise will go towards the paint job, maintenance and remodeling costs.  

     Please remember, Kickstarter is an ALL OR NOTHING platform, so it is so very important that you help us reach our goal of $7,000!

Risks and challenges

Our greatest challenge after becoming funded would be finding the perfect truck for us right away. While we have found numerous trucks that fit our criteria online, we do realize that they may not be available still when we are ready to purchase. If this does become the case, we will simply expand our search, looking nationwide for the perfect fit!
