District 78's Erikka Gray

Erikka is the owner of District 78. District 78 started as Vintage Goods & Design, selling vintage clothing online and at outdoor markets. After a fast start, District 78 opened a brick and mortar store in June of 2013.  In 2015, Erikka started producing candles as a way to express herself through scent. She wanted to bring unique scents into people’s lives that would create new memories, like scent has done for her. In 2016, she decided to close the store to focus on candle making.

Since then her candle line has taken off and she couldn’t be happier to re-launch District 78 as a lifestyle brand. Her goal is to provide product and content that adds to your daily lives.  Check out her lovely scented candles

Erikka also carries a line of custom designed T-shirts with messaging geared toward supporting women. You can get a LeadHER, CreateHER, EntrepreneuHER tee on her site.

Sister Share: Rachel DesRochers' Good People Festival on July 22

Rachel started Grateful Grahams in 2010. With one kid in school and an infant at home, she was looking to create a company to fulfill her passion and dreams of creating her own job. She spent more than seven years working in marketing for a national company, so with her knowledge in the natural foods industry she wanted to create a tasty treat all could enjoy. Between a friend’s suggestion and her dad’s veganism after battling prostate cancer, Rachel developed a great treat – handmade vegan graham crackers.

For Rachel, this company has many aspects – creating her dream job, spreading the message of gratitude, and working with small batches to ensure a great product each time. Starting at home, she outgrew her oven in just a matter of months and shared kitchen spaces with local food producers from there, learning so much along the way. In January 2013 Rachel signed a lease on her very own kitchen space.

She has built a wholesale business shipping orders all over the country, even being featured in a VegNews full page spread. With a powerful belief in herself and her vision for making Grateful Grahams a household name, Rachel balances the business and her boisterous, fun loving family of five.

Rachel's projects include the Gratitude Collective, a new class at the HIVE, Two Kitchen Incubators, Kitchen Convos Podcast—and something new is coming! She gives the best hugs, and has the positive power to take on the world. Can't wait to see what's next. For now, go support her project The Good People Festival:
