Meet Ashley Pinkston
ASHLEY IS THE WOMAN BEHIND THE STORE.
She is heavily influenced by her childhood, drawing inspiration from early memories. It began with her mother bringing home vintage Gunny Sack dresses to play dress-up. Remembering the way clothing moved, how it felt and the way it made her feel would impact her love of fashion throughout her lifetime. Ashley grew up with a magical forest behind her house where she turned trees into pretend animals and made pies from wild onions; her childhood experiences reinforce her emphasis on children/adults and the art of play. As an adult, her journey took her through innumerable hours of retail, a decade of intermittently selling goods online, and some volunteer work sprinkled into the mix. Do Good Co. felt like a natural combination of all of the above. "I see Do Good Co. being an artistically playful place of community. A place known for making a difference that ripples throughout the world. To change the future, we have to start with our children. Working with KidsTLC is an honor! And as for the pets, who doesn't love a bundle of fur that radiates unconditional love!?" As a lover of movement, nature, and community, she's always on the hunt for pieces that inspire and spark connection; she is excited to share her vision with the people of Kansas City.
