Hello from the Great Lakes State!
My name is Karry Brook, and you've landed here at Goods and Gather! Formally a brick and mortar, Goods Detroit. I now run a small design and branding business from my home-studio.
Let me tell you a little about how I got started, and the journey that it has taken!
With a background in graphic design and advertising, I found myself looking for trendy onesies for my newborn son back in 2005. At the time, offerings were slim for cool boy clothes. Having recently taken a screenprinting class at the College for Creative Studies, I began printing a few designs on tees and onesies just for him. People started asking where they could buy the clothes my son was wearing, and so it started! First in a few local baby boutiques, then to online sales, then the expansion to my six-year stint as a brick-and-mortar in Detroit's Midtown.
I've adapted my designs, had more children, expanded my offerings to include sewing, fiber, and custom branding. I never expected to turn it into a business, but I've been a maker since I could scribble on paper. It was only natural to keep creating! I'm constantly learning, and perfecting my craft, and hope you've followed me along the way.
You can find me at street fairs, art fairs, pop-ups and selling online.
I'm currently offering small business brand development, and production of soft goods. I also take individual custom orders, just fill out the form and I will get back to you.
Thank you for allowing me to share my creative "Goods" with you, I hope you continue to follow!
