  • Funding Usage

    We are requesting fund to decorate and furnish (contractors, furniture, supplies) a new space and pay required upfront expenses that include a deposit on a new space, initiating account for utilities, stocking new products in inventory, additional insurance for new building. We intend to host a ribbon cutting event as well when we are able to reopen.

  • Business Plan

    Provide unique offerings for our area to include events to learn how to make your own natural wellness products, provide bulk tea offering as well as a social space in the store for events and tea tasting. Provide free space for local artisans to sell their wares, for which we will take a % of profits, allowing new artists a risk free environment to work toward their own dream while increasing our business profitability as well. There is a growing interest in trusted natural wellness and beauty products and limited resources to learn safe and effective ways to take care of ourselves naturally. We are not only owners, but practitioners of using natural products to support our families' health. We aren't only hear to sell quality products but to teach others safe ways to care for themselves. Both co-owners are working toward a Certification as Master Herbalists and will complete this certification course in mid May 2024. Additionally, co-owner, Andi has used natural wellness to help eliminate debilitating depression and help her son, suffering from Crohns Disease improve his health incredibly. In a few short months, our woman-owned, wellness-focused gift shop has financed our business and grown a strong and loyal customer base, all without a strategic store front location. We are ready to do more and support more people in our community. We believe in natural health, community, and giving back. We are passionate about what we provide and it shows.

  • Self Identified Competition

    We don't see any true competitors, we see partners. There are local wellness-focus artisans that share the same passion, many we'd like to work with to have their products in our store. We have these things in our area, but seldom in the same place. We will pull this community together to help those that struggle to find these natural products. These amazing products are spread out throughout towns and counties, we will pull these together. There are natural medical practices that offer natural plant-based supplements as well, however Cloverleaf Nook will steer clear of pill based supplements. Instead we will have teas, natural oils, tinctures and ointments as well as organic skin care products and will use our education to highlight the studies and historical use of plants. We are not health care practitioners, but a resource for learning, sourcing, and provide access to natural, clean, organic wellness products for gifts, pampering, and feeling better. Research, education, compassion and personal experience with what we offer. Every day we are open our customers tell us we need to be in the heart of town where everyone can find us. There are people craving an alternative to over the counter remedies and skin care that is affordable and easy to find. We've also found that our mission to ensure we only work with quality, U.S. based small businesses is important in our community. Additionally, having true and honest stories about how we've helped our own families makes our interactions personal. We don't discourage allopathic health care - - we just simply want to remove toxins from those products our customers use daily that allow for less negative reaction when you just want to do something good for you!
