This has been a very crazy couple of weeks for us. We have been doing our best to plug away at our new name, but cannot stress how appreciative and grateful we are to have all the support that we have received. I know that most companies say some of the same things, but I feel like we have developed something different. This company is not just about the people that run it, it's not just about sunglasses, and it's certainly not just about how much money we can try and make. This company has been built around the passion of our friends and the will to give back along the way. I am blessed by the amount of people I have met along the way. Believe me, we have had our ups and downs. I can remember some very stressful times when we first started as Roots. Clothing. I had specific designs to be printed on shirts and simply could not find a printer anywhere. I literally drove around New Jersey with a folder full of designs looking for a printer and could not find anyone who would do what I wanted. I ran into so many obstacles, but kept finding the desire and motivation to keep pushing forward. Everyone that has "liked" our Facebook page, or followed us on Twitter, or dropped us a comment online, or even purchases a pair of shades, is the reason why this company is where it is. Without the support of all of you, we would be nothing. I want to always make sure that ALL of you realize that you have contributed to this company.
Hopefully you will allow me to share some stories with you and keep you updated with what happens on our side of the table over here at Brushwood. This company is my heart and soul. Whatever contribution it is you make to this company, even taking the time to read this...thank you.
This is just the beginning of a beautiful journey and cannot wait to see what comes from!
