About

MISSION

 

Citizen Supply exists to bridge the gap between the maker and the customer. To achieve that, we support three different business types:

  1. Handmade and Small-Batch Goods
  2. Local Brands
  3. Sustainable Businesses

    We pride ourselves on providing a favorable profit-sharing model and offer valuable business analytics to each of our makers so they can continue to focus on their work. We were founded on the notion that the process is as significant as the product so we focus heavily on storytelling and are committed to representing our vendors not only as artists, but as people. 

    In addition to introducing their work to a wider audience and creating an additional revenue stream, our goal - above all - is a relationship. We believe that retail doesn't have to be solely transactional and are proud to call our vendors friends. By shopping with us, you're making a real impact on the lives of some of the most talented people we know. So, thank you!

     

    ABOUT OUR FOUNDER

     

    Citizen Supply is the brainchild of Phil Sanders – an Atlanta based creative entrepreneur who recognized the growing demand for well-made, high-quality products in today’s retail landscape. 

    In 2014, Phil founded Foster, a community where freelancers, artists, and entrepreneurs gather in one space that focuses equally on business success and community growth. As Foster’s mission developed and expanded, the company hosted a pop-up shop for local artists to sell their goods. The community's response to this idea was overwhelmingly positive – this was the beginning of what is now Citizen Supply. Officially opening in November 2015, the store was born out of a desire to connect artists, small brands and makers to consumers.

    Today, Citizen Supply proudly partners with over one hundred and fifty craftsmen / craftswomen and brands from across the world. The growth is exciting, but the mission remains the same: to empower the maker.
