If you’ve been shopping online, you’ve probably come across one of the big sites like Amazon or eBay.
The sites offer a wide range of products, but there’s one thing they’re missing: an outlet where you can buy them.
And that’s where the DC Collective Collective comes in.
Created by three women from New York City, DC Collective is a marketplace for DIY, small business, art, and fashion items.
“We are a small business that wants to provide a way for people to make things, share their work and make money off of it,” said the founders of DC Collective, Erica Leibowitz, Amanda Leshin and Noreen Shaffer.
“When you shop on Etsy, it’s really easy to find a good deal, but the DC collective has a way to help you find your perfect bargain.”
In the world of craft goods, DC collective is a unique brand, but in the realm of clothing, the collective’s designers have gone to great lengths to find their way to the market.
“Our vision is to create a community where everyone can have access to their art, they can create and share their creations, and they can enjoy the fruits of their labor,” said Leibowitz.
“And that’s really what we’re doing.”
The DC Collective collective has been in the New York market since May and is currently expanding its inventory to more than 50 retailers.
Its website, DCcollective.com, features a curated selection of products and a dedicated page that features new and used items.
The DC collective also runs an online store, DCcans.com where they sell their clothes online for $5.99 per item.
They’ve recently added a number of new items to their site including a limited edition scarf that is made from 100% cotton.
In addition to the clothing, DC is also known for their art.
Their latest collection, the DC Arts Collection, includes a collection of watercolors, paintings and prints.
In the past, DC has sold prints from the DC Artists Collection at auctions.
“The DC Collective has always had an amazing collection of art, which we continue to showcase through the DC Art Collection,” said Leshins.
“In recent years, our collections have been expanding in the arts, and we are proud to offer our customers an even wider selection of art and art-related products.
We want to offer something new for all of our customers.”
With an active online presence, DC also offers a community to connect with other art lovers.
“DC is one of my favorite communities, it has so many amazing people that share their passion for art and their work,” said Shaffer, who has been working in the fashion industry since she was a teenager.
“A lot of the art that we see on the site is people who are doing amazing things in their chosen field, and it’s so rewarding to see people in their community sharing that passion.”
DC Collective started as a way of connecting artists and designers, but they also hope to help other creatives create more affordable, high quality items for consumers.
“What we do is we look at the way people shop, we look to see how the consumers are going to shop,” said Shannon.
“I think it’s important for people not to just look at what they see on Etsy or on Amazon, but to look at where they are going.
We’re not going to sell you a $5 scarf, but we’re going to help them find the best bargain.”
The collective also has a number products that are unique to their customers, like a line of nail polish, but many are affordable and made from recycled materials.
DC Collective also has an extensive portfolio of vintage and modern clothing.
They’re a part of the DC Collections Collection of Vintage, Modern and Contemporary.
“People love to wear things that they would wear 10, 20, 30 years ago,” said LaHenna.
“It’s about finding things that fit your style and are durable, and then letting the fabric sit for 10, 15, 20 years and letting the natural fibers come through.
It’s a process of creating something beautiful and timeless that will last.”
The Collective also offers an online marketplace where they’re selling new, old, and used clothing.
Their inventory is updated daily and you can browse their site or browse the collection.
“There’s so much stuff that we sell that you might not be able to find anywhere else,” said Jeanette Stacey, the creative director at DC Collective.
“So, we try to find as much as we can for you.
And if you don’t want to spend $5 to get a new sweater, we also have some things that are for sale for a fraction of the price.”
In addition, the Collective has an online shop where they offer new and gently used items, as well as collectable and vintage items.
DC has also launched a “Culture Club” where designers and artists can create a new project
