Freehand Goods, a Florida retailer

Spring 2020
The Perfect Combination By Debbie Eisele

Two Florida retailers making and selling their own lines.

More and more, customers are looking for retail experiences that offer merchandise with a story and purpose. They are also looking to shop where there is a sense of community.

Two retailers in Orlando, Florida, are offering unique made in the USA items that truly hone in on a sense of community. Each shop creates a majority of its own merchandise, which is then paired with product from select vendors to curate an ideal mix for customers who desire home-grown product, experiences, a story and uniqueness.
