Huckberry is an independent online retailer and magazine for those who love adventure. We're a team of 80ish based in San Francisco, California with offices in Columbus, Ohio. Over a million and a half young, active professionals trust us as their leading resource for emerging brands, gear, and lifestyle inspiration.
We chose the name Huckberry because we both loved Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and thought Huckberry was the perfect totem for the spirit of adventure we wanted our brand to embody. More practically speaking, Huckberry.com was available on GoDaddy for $9.98 and Huckleberry.com was not.We hit the trade show circuit and sold our favorite brands on our vision. Most looked at our self-designed business cards, smiled with amusement, and said no. But enough said yes, presumably taking a chance on us not because of where we were, but because of where we were going.
The wool started to ball in pill constantly. I was picking handfuls of wool off the shoes every day. They looked horrible. After a month, I sent an email to customer service with photos. They told me that they considered this the products are good quality...Fat Lie !!
