Hi! We’re Young Gentry. We started in 2014 with two sisters and a very old pickup truck named Bruce. We had a pie-in-the-sky idea that we could build a company with high standards, ethically-sourced and produced products, happy employees, and kickass merch. So we learned to make our own stuff – seriously. We poured our own candles, built our own boxes, and got many splinters and burn marks. Luckily, a few people have noticed our stuff. We opened our first retail location in 2019 and added a new owner. If you’re in Atlanta stop on by! And we didn't lose sight of those high standards either. We spend a great deal of time giving back through our Everyday Giving, Special Partnerships, and Acts of Service campaigns.
