About Us

Hi!  I’m Nancy.  I am a wife, mother, daughter & love being a helpful friend. 
Here we are, curating collections of trendy and ethical fashion and more,
to make it easy on consumers to find new brands and products
they'll enjoy in more ways than one. 


Kin Trading Post

We chose a name that represents how we enjoy living life with others, which is treating all people like family, our “next of kin”.  Trading Posts were once small shops set along trade routes where people from different countries and cultures exchanged goods, news, and stories.  We see our virtual “Trading Post” creating a similar experience.  Kin Trading Post is a growing family of customers, designers, brands, small businesses, and artisans who enjoy expressing themselves through fashion.  THIS IS OUR PASSION.

Our Story

Once we learned about the “dark side” of the fashion industry, we began researching brands products in an effort to shop from those who cared about the people more than the profits. We wanted to continue to express ourselves with style while staying true to our new values. Shop-owner, Nancy, frustrated by the amount of time it took to research asked “why can’t there be a store that only carries brands that share these values AND style?”.  Her go-getter husband responded, “why don’t YOU do it?”.  And with that, the seed was planted.  She brainstormed with her family (kids have the best input!), prayed a prayer and with that, a store name was picked and a goal was set. At Kin, we do the research for you so that you don’t have to.  That way, you can do what you came here to do – shop while feeling good about the brands and people you are supporting.

Kin Trading Post is a marketplace
that values connection, people and fashion. 

We curate collections that share at least one of our core values listed below:

We are all about "trendsetting compassion" through fashion.
