Dear Customers & Friends,
I wanted to take the time to reach out to you and thank you, for your continued support throughout these difficult times.
Kempton & Co. started just over a decade ago, with me sewing handbags in my NYC loft. I have been lucky enough to turn what was merely a dream into a reality, doing something that I love, everyday; creating local jobs and working alongside gifted artisans, who continue to work with me. These are the team members who throughout the years have become part of my extended family. Together we are trying to fight for what we love doing, so that when the dust settles we can get back to doing what we do best, designing, producing handbags and interacting with our customers.
As one of many small businesses there have been a multitude of ups and downs, when one has to problem solve on the spot, for the unexpected. However nothing could have prepared us (or the world) for COVID-19 and how it has impacted our lives.
It has been a pleasure getting to know you all, and we hope that along with our fellow small retailers, Kempton & Co.can survive these times and come out the other side stronger and better than before. We look forward to seeing you in our store, events and at our shows sometime soon.
Thank you for standing together with us. We wish safety and health for you and your families. For all the first responders in our community, we thank you, beyond words.
