A Message From The Founder

I can hardly contain the excitement I feel as I'm sitting at my desk writing the story of The Refinery. Just 2 short years ago I was in the middle of running my then e-commerce store, The Hip Humanitarian, and constantly panicking because my tiny, dark apartment was in no way ideal for good product photography, I lacked community and oh did I mention I had no clue how to run an online store? I knew I needed more to make my dream a reality.

Cue The Refinery.

My hope for this collaborative shared space is that it provides the Austin creative community with a blank canvas full of the resources and like-minded people they need to successfully be the boss of their own lives! 

Can't wait to see you there so soon!!

xx, Hayley
