Established for Now:
Advisory Goods was birthed out of necessity after Covid-19 closed our communities in unprecedented ways in March 2020.
What started as a way to assist essential workers by sewing & donating masks across the country, soon began to bloom into an e-commerce blogshop. The increased time at home during our California state and Los Angeles county mandates did much to shine light on the way we live and how we spend time in our space. The increased time also lent to dusting off old passions and embracing hobbies that were stuffed into the past: I have been reminded of the value & satisfaction of home-sewn goods, reusable table linens, and fresh art to enhance our living spaces.
After launching two stalled start-ups, A. Goods is considered my "third-luck-charm." This is me doing what I do, mostly being a "maker." I created this space as a resource of fresh & creative ideas for living in our strangely modern times while also featuring some of my home-crafted goodies or found items that I think are deserving of your attention.
A. Goods is quite literally Established for Now: a time of needing to stay flexible, a time for embracing feel-good nostalgia from simpler times, a time for embracing comforts of home, a time of making what we can with what we have.
Whether it be reading about ways to break up the monotony of sheltering-at-home, or suggestions on growing vegetables in our sunny SoCal gardens, I hope to inspire you to think outside of the box of domesticity -- and maybe grab a t-shirt too! Thank you for finding A. Goods and taking the time to peruse the goods, I am grateful for your support.
