Chic Spotlight: Double Clutched Mobile Shop

Double Clutched Mobile Shop carries handcrafted items in a traveling truck.

Cbus Chic: What is Double Clutched Mobile Shop?
Cheryl Williams, Founder of Double Clutched Mobile Shop: The Double Clutched Mobile Shop is a 6×12 trailer turned a handcrafted lifestyle goods and accessories shop that supports and sells handcrafted products from other women-owned small businesses. It is an extension of the handcrafted accessories business, Double Clutched. The mobile shop launched in June of 2017, so just shy of it’s one year anniversary.

Cbus Chic: What’s the inspiration behind the mobile shop?
Williams: The inspiration for the mobile shop came from the concept of fashion trucks and mobile boutiques. These tend to mainly sell clothing. Cheryl wanted to continue the handcrafted piece of the Double Clutched business and expand to sell other handcrafted items without having to open a brick and mortar shop. While still enjoying going out to meet my customer, with the mobile shop both of those goals can be achieved.

Cbus Chic: Who’s behind the business?
Williams: I am the owner, founder, and driver (ha!) of the Double Clutched Mobile Shop. I’m a graduate of The Ohio State University and currently also work full-time as a business analyst. When not working or hauling the mobile shop, I’m deep into other DIY projects around my home.

Cbus Chic: What types of items do you sell in the shop?
Williams: In the Mobile Shop you can find soy candles, natural bath and body products such as body wash and bath bombs. Handcrafted bracelets, earrings and headwraps. Home decor such as gold-foil prints and pillows, both handmade. There’s also an assortment of handcrafted handbags such as clutches, wallets, zip pouches, and crossbody bags.

Cbus Chic: Can readers book the mobile shop for private parties? If so, is there a cost to book it?
Williams: The mobile shop can absolutely be booked for private parties by contacting mobile@doubleclutched.com. It’s no cost to the host and more details can be found here.

Cbus Chic: What makes Double Clutched and the Mobile Shop unique?
Williams: Double Clutched’s mission is to bring customers handcrafted items that motivate and inspire. That is done through our bold and unique fabrics and complimentary functional pieces. The Mobile Shop is unique because not only it is majorly handcrafted, every vendor inside the shop is a women-owned business and comes from a variety of places across the country from Los Angeles (our candles) to Brooklyn (our earrings). The mobile shop proudly features these brands and each customer who buys from the mobile shop is essentially supporting small business double time.
