2015 was a big year for Crown & Buckle. Our American Made strap collection grew and continued to be well received. We had some awesomeÂ collaborations with brands like Oak & Oscar, Martenero, Autodromo, and analog/shift. The #Straps4ACure projectÂ was a runaway success, raising more than $15,000 (and counting) for breast cancer research.Â We introduced many new styles, and phased out some old ones.
There were trials and tribulations. We had some stumbles with inventory lead times and production. There was web site down timeÂ and tech issuesÂ along the way.Â Logistics, personnel, competition, legal issues, and financesÂ madeÂ scaling and growth a challenge for our small business.
Through it all we learned, grew, and tried new things. In the end we came out stronger and wiser. For 2016, we have some exciting projects that we have been working hard on, whichÂ we cannot wait to share soon. UltimatelyÂ only God knows what 2016 will have in store for us, and we can't wait to see what new blessingsÂ lay ahead.
Thank you for being a part of this great #watchfam community and supporting what we do here at C&B. We wish you a safe, happy, and successful 2016.
