Hey friends! Hallie and Brand, founder and owner of Dot, here.
If you've been following this journey since the beginning or even for the past few years, you may have noticed that things have gotten significantly quieter (and most of the time silent) in this little space over the past few months.
I'm still here. We (as in me and my husband Gus and our sweet puppy Maestro) are doing really well. There's been a lot of life in the in between time of wrapping up the shop last summer and now, and things are really beautifully good. This spring has been a busy one as we've traveled a lot for Gus to visit and interview at MBA programs all over the country, and we're thrilled to announce that we'll be landing at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee for the next two years.
After a lot of prayer and conversation with trusted family, friends and mentors, we've decided close our Dot product line and stop selling our branded school and art supplies at the end of this month. We have loved being a part of this industry and space, but my heart is to help people make big impact with their small decisions and the products no longer are the best way I know how to do that.
I do want to make it clear that Dot as an organization will continue in a small capacity. We have a few small projects (one being our school supply bundle partnership with Christ Covenant School) that will be continuing under the brand of Dot. We're keeping those limited for now, and keeping a back of the mind prayer about what God may do longterm--if anything at all. For now, my "one thing" is to learn to love and be a part of this new adventure God has given us, and I'm excited to be a part of what's going on in Nashville.
The past four years of running Dot have been some of the very best of my life, and I want to thank you for all of your support. I can honestly say I've learned more through this adventure than any other one pursuit in my life thus far, and it was worth every single moment.
Over the next two weeks, we'll be clearing out all of our remaining inventory. We want to celebrate all the good that this chapter has been by giving you one last chance to get a little piece of Dot for your own. Everything in the shop is currently 15% off with the coupon "DoOneThing". Over the next two weeks, we may mark it down even further as we approach our end date of May 15.
We've got just a tiny little bit of inventory left.
About 65 planners, 90 blank journals (also selling those in packs of 5 for SUPER cheap), 30-ish handpainted journals, a few pencil sets, about 30 bags, t-shirts and all of the extra little things.
We've added all remaining inventory to the website and even have some leftover holiday journals available! I'm assuming it'll all go quickly, especially the handpainted line (some of which is on the website for the first time ever this week!). Go check it out, and grab a couple of your favorites. We'll keep you updated on social media if we run out (or think we will run out) before May 15th!
Thank you for supporting our work over the past four years and making it possible for us to provide more than forty full year scholarships (and so many more incredible adventures) to students around the world. We did one thing, and it changed everything.
