Leslie has worked with Non-profit organizations for many years. This project started as a hobby in their garage. It was an attempt to make T'shirts for a youth show choir in New Kent, Virginia. As her projects grew, so did the equipment. Leslie has combined her many years of marketing and community engagement as a foundation for Dream Tree Apparel.
John has owned and operated a restaurant in Richmond, Virginia for 20 years. When the pandemic hit, he found himself spending more time at home and helping his wife make T-shirts, gifts and home decor. In 2021, he was able to move his family to a small river community on the Middle Peninsula of Virginia. While the restaurant is still thriving, he loves Dream Tree Apparel and the business model that it is built from.
John and Leslie have been small business owners for over 25 years. They believe that our community is the reason that their restaurants have been such a success. Dream Tree Apparel is happy to give back to our community with every purchase. In addition, all of our equipment and supplies are purchased through small, local businesses. We believe in supporting our community, and that philosophy is incorporated in all of our business transactions.
