What in the world is Wire and Honey? What does it MEAN?! We get that question a lot. A lot, a lot. And while I absolutely LOVE hearing people's guesses of the origin of our name I think it's time to give a little back story of our brand.
As most of you know, we are a Baltimore based company and we LOVE our city. A few weeks ago, peaceful protests in our city were interrupted by a small number of rioters who turned violent. Although the rioters were small in number the damage caused to local homes, cars, and businesses was severe. One such family, the Lawson family, was a victim of this violence. On April 28th, 2015 rioters set the building adjacent to the Lawson residence on fire which subsequently caught their home on fire. Neighbors were able to get Ms. Lawson and her son out of the home safely but with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Ms. Lawson's son has special needs and his wheelchair was also lost in the fire.
I know I post a lot about the Believe in Music program. I even have a whole page of this site dedicated to the program itself. Still, I could never speak for these kids the way they can speak for themselves. Please, if you've never read a blog post of mine, make this the one you read.
Although Wire and Honey focuses on toddler fashion, we love to support all small businesses. As Baltimore natives, we have a soft spot for Baltimore small businesses. So, we are happy to introduce you to Carrot + Cream, Wire and Honey's small business of the week!
