There are several reasons that I love supporting local businesses. One is that it is amazing to see people live out their dream of doing their own thing. Hearing their stories about how they started small and were able to ditch corporate America is so empowering. It is also refreshing to find products that are unique and well made. In this week’s addition of Let Me Introduce You To, I would like you to meet Stateline Designs!
Thanks to social media I had known of Stateline Designs for months before finally meeting owner Ellyse Espinoza at the Flea Style event in Houston this past weekend. Their glittery Texas tee’s had me the first time I saw them sparkle! Not only do the tee’s sparkle, but so does Ellyse! Hearing her story about starting up Stateline Designs while being a single mom working a full-time job was so inspirational. Along with her best friend, Ellyse started up the tee company on Etsy hoping that it would take off. And take off it did! To the point that Ellyse was able to quit her job to focus solely on Stateline as well as moving the shop into this snazzy mobile boutique! That’s right people! Girl power at work!
Designs focus on all things Texas with an emphasis on Houston. Several Texas natives such as George Strait, Selena, and JJ Watt are featured on items. Whether you are just visiting and want to take home something more than your average souvenir, or are a native Texan that knows our state truly looks cooler than any other, there is something to be found at Stateline.
Who could go home without making that glittery Texas tee a part of their wardrobe? I have no idea who! I know she is not me as that awesome thing is now in my closet!
