Insight into the making of Tourneur Goods and the thought process behind building a business from scratch.
Nearly a year ago, we embarked naively and optimistically into building Tourneur Goods with the goal to make and sell thoughtful products that embody utility, craftsmanship, and style.
I just want to share our suppliers to help make your lives easier if you’re ever looking to start a similar endeavor.
|Namecheap handles domain registration for Tourneur.
|The store, checkout flow, and this blog is powered by Shopify, which is very easy to set up and maintain, but rather expensive.
