Citizen Supply is the brainchild of Phil Sanders – an Atlanta based creative entrepreneur who recognized the growing demand for well-made, high-quality products in today’s retail landscape.
In 2014, Phil founded Foster, a community where freelancers, artists, and entrepreneurs gather in one space that focuses equally on business success and community growth. As Foster’s mission developed and expanded, the company hosted a pop-up shop for local artists to sell their goods. The community's response to this idea was overwhelmingly positive – this was the beginning of what is now Citizen Supply. Officially opening in November 2015, the store was born out of a desire to connect artists and makers to consumers.
Today, Citizen Supply proudly partners with over one hundred craftsmen and craftswomen from across the country. The growth is exciting, but the mission remains the same: to empower the maker.
