For nearly 4 years we have offered a warm cup of coffee in a real mug to thousands of people who have walked through our doors at SCOUT vintage collective. We offered eclectic goods & inspiration. We offered workshops and classes, parties and fundraisers. We stitched, painted, crafted, and sold artisan goods for hard working local people. We took an empty building and breathed laughter and creativity into it.
What we got back was a community that embraced us. You showed up, donated, supported and rallied. It was a partnership of people. We couldn’t have done it without you.
I have made the difficult decision to close SCOUT, not because it’s over, but because it was time. My circumstances over the course of the last year have changed my life story and it’s time to make room for what’s next. It’s been the most amazing thing I’ve ever been a part of. I am grateful and humbled by what it became, the goodwill it fostered, and the camaraderie shared with so many good people.
While this isn’t the end of our story, it’s important to remember that remarkable things can happen when we take risks. Never be afraid to fail. Do something you love. Be kind to one another.
We couldn’t be prouder of who we’ve met, what we built, and what we’re leaving behind.
Thank you for being a part of our story.
Sara & the rest of the SCOUT crew
