Hey people! Come to our holiday party next week!
You can shop our new collection, win amazing prizes, and support homeless children in our city by bringing a new unwrapped toy or baby onesie (0-24 months).
Hope to see y'all there!
Well hello. Come help us clean Ocean Beach this Saturday November 14th at 11am. We're getting there early to set up and will be there till 2:30PMish. We'd love your help!
We'll feed you tacos. We'll give you beer (if you're 21+, and soda if you're not). Whoever cleans the most trash gets a free blanket and whoever eats the most tacos gets a free shirt. Please spread the word and reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or Maddie at 310-766-0178 if you'd like to help.
Thank you Chase for the poster!! Check him out at www.chasegrammer.work

We thought we'd give ya'll a little behind the scene look at how we're running things at QUINNS. Since we have a teeny tiny budget we've quickly learned how to creatively cut costs.
This is our 'warehouse'. AKA a bunch of boxes that we got on sale at Target stuffed into my studio apartment. We keep all of the bigger items in a storage closet in Makayla's apartment and drive between the two apartments a few nights a week to fill and ship orders.
Our 'office' is just my desk or a bunch of pillows thrown on the floor depending on how many of us are working. We shoot most of our product photos in the trash yard behind my apartment. There's good lighting in the mornings and the wooden staircase is a nice backdrop once we've cleaned up all the trash.
Here's my friend Daniel helping with some of the shots. As you can see our set up is suuuuper fancy.. poster from CVS, natural lighting, and some tape.
Stella (the 'office' gremlin) either creepily stares at us from the stairs or tries to lick the camera lens. Things are always entertaining around here.
Shooting around San Francisco is the best part and we love getting photos of QUINNS from our friends.
Thanks for reading our first little post. I'm so excited to read back through this tomorrow and cringe at my spelling mistakes. So that's pretty much it, there's nothing fancy and we're having so much fun with it. Thanks again to all of you! We're so excited for what's to come.
