Hello, my name is Adam Miller, and I love living in Charleston. I'm not originally from here. Every day I feel lucky to live here and be a part of this growing community.
843 Shop is located in my home on James Island in Riverland Terrace and currently doesn't have a physical storefront. There are multiple ways to snag some merchandise. We have an online store, a few of our shirts and bags are sold at Cannonborough Collective, and occasionally you can find us around town doing a pop-up. It is my hope that this brand brings people together in an effort to create a better Charleston.
All the shirts are sweatshop free. I design and screen print every shirt by hand in my home on James Island. I use water-based inks in an attempt to be more eco-friendly and to get that soft ink feel. 10% of all the proceeds go to a local charity. (Currently, the money is going to Feed the Need, a local charity that works with 180 Place, Crisis Ministries, East Cooper Meals on Wheels and other local charities to help feed those in the Charleston area that need it most.)
A few brands have been my inspiration for creating 843 Shop. Tom's Shoes has always impressed me with their buy a pair, give a pair model. 704 Shop in Charlotte has shown me what a brand that loves their city can do to be a part of the local community. Brands like The Hundreds and Supreme have blown my mind with their role in the street wear scene. Locally, J. Stark has been the biggest influence on me to create a product. They inspire me to continually grow to be a better brand that offers a better product that will become an enjoyable part of your day to day life.
Thank you for taking the time to read about 843 Shop. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Hope you have a great day!
