About the Team

Hey, I'm Alex. And I believe that: 
♥ A low-waste lifestyle should be accessible and affordable for everyone. 
♥ In order to leave this world better than I found it I can make better decisions about what and how I consume. 
♥ We all deserve to be a part of a community where we are valued, loved and lifted up by one another.
Life is too short to take yourself too seriously.
I started Kindred Homestead Supply in the hopes of creating a space for like-minded folk to gather, converse, shop for low-waste products, learn, grow, share, and exist together. I can't wait to meet you and learn your story.

Meet our Shop Manager, Savonne. She's a wonderful energy you're sure to see hustling day in and day out here at Kindred. She enjoys the color pink - and any bright color for that matter, long walks on the beach, is a PNW native, stops for rainbows and butterflies, has a lot of kiddos (4 to be exact) and is an incredible DIY-er!
Savonne joined us in Summer 2023 and it's like she's been with us forever. She is a ray of sunshine with cool tattoos and a love for pressing flowers.


Emily started in January 2021 and hasn't looked back. After graduating with her Bachelor's degree in communication & environmental science, Emily looked for a place that aligned with her values.⁠ She is our Social media manager, content creator, outreach coordinator, event planner, and photographer!

"I love working downtown. I was born and raised in Vancouver but am just now feeling a part of the downtown community. My favorite part is building connections and seeing familiar faces. I appreciate Alex for hiring me as her second employee. I have grown so much here and I'll owe a lot to her."
Lexie moved halfway across the country from Iowa and started her journey with Kindred in May 2022. She feels they have found a home in Downtown Vancouver and at Kindred. Lexie attended PCI Academy and graduated to go on to be an esthetician and social media manager for a local painting company. Although they choose to not be in spas anymore, they still continue their education and have found a greater, continued love and purpose for supporting local businesses/creatives, education to a more low-waste lifestyle, thrifting second-hand, and growing Kindred’s impact.

“Having just started my low-waste journey I was so stoked to have been introduced to Kindred. I was welcomed into Washington and downtown with open arms and couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of this community. Coming from jobs and places where I didn’t feel appreciated, Alex and Emily took a chance on hiring me and continue to have trust in me. And, they have let me grow as a person and team member. Because of my support system, I am committed to continuing my journey in healing, educating myself and others, and uplifting those around me.”
Meet our very own southern sweetheart, Udell (pronounced You·Dell). Originally from South Carolina, he recently relocated to Vancouver with his partner, Jordan and their two cats, Lucien and Izzy. 
When he's not meticulously organizing at Kindred, he can be found meticulously organizing at home. Or baking. Seriously, he makes the best baked goods - lucky us! 
"Kindred was quite literally the tipping point for us deciding to move to Vancouver. Not only did I feel welcome, it assured me that this was a city moving in the right direction. I'm excited to interact more and more with this community, especially folks doing their best to live lower waste. I love that i get to be a part of that."


Buttercup is our shop foster bunny. She came to us in July 2022 along with her sister, Bubbles. While Bubbles has found her forever home, Buttercup is a little more shy and still searching for her people. She is being fostered through Rabbit Advocates, a foster based rescue in Portland and Vancouver.
On most weekdays you can find Buttercup hopping around the shop, laying or doing bunny zoomies on the red rug or peeping at you from under the green chair.
She's slowly warming up to the idea of being pet, but will definitely let you boop her on the nose if you bring her a treat (kale and collards are her fave). To find out more about Rabbit Advocates, visit their site HERE
