This often leads to a brief discussion surrounding brands and commodities. ...

My first thought was, "At last, I have found my people." Freshly minted from design school, I have been given the opportunity to be the art intern at Tentcraft. Hi there, I'm Kristina Buntic.

Donations - Current Thoughts and Future Plans

02/14/2014 / by Matt / General, Messages from Matt, Tents

While this is an uncomfortable post to write—I, along with others from our tent team, have had this conversation enough times to warrant a quick post.
