Robert and Shanecka Bedford started the company with little money
and had no idea that they would be able to reach the number of people that we have. All they knew is they wanted to have an impact. “We knew that we wanted to set an example and prove to ourselves, our families, our community, and other aspiring entrepreneurs that you really can do anything you want if you believe in yourself and put in the work. We knew we were on to something when customers started emailing us thanking us for doing what we do or telling us that we helped them beat cancer by spreading peace and positivity.” All of our products are created using fair-trade practices. We source our products from trade partners who believe that producers should be paid fair wages for their labor, treated with respect and dignity and are given creative freedom to produce high-quality goods. At Heads Up Trading Co. we believe in putting people over profits and are committed to giving back. A portion of our proceeds is donated to Casita Copán Children’s Home. When you purchase an accessory from Heads Up Trading Co. you are helping us make the world a better place for all. We invite you to shop our online store and visit us at upcoming shows and fairs.
