Local Couple To Be On Today Show for New Face Mask Business
When the coronavirus crisis began to affect our area back in March, one local couple knew they wanted to help, and sprung into action.
Eric Sims, of Philadelphia told his girlfriend, Stephanie Gold, of Pennington, that they needed to buy a sewing machine and material quickly, because people were going to need face masks to stay safe from this virus. While they were in "lock down," they started sewing, and sewing, and sewing, until their new business, Lockeddowndesigns, was born.
At first, the couple made face masks for our frontline heroes, and since then, their business has grown by leaps and bounds. They never imagined the huge response. Even though both have full-time jobs, Lockeddowndesigns has happily taken over much of their time.
You have to check out their website. Their goal has always been "making a premium mask that not just performs great but is also comfortable to wear, that makes a statement and that will hold up wash after wash.....after all you don’t wear the same underwear every day so why would you wear the same face mask every day." Lol.
