Palm Trading Co. was started due to the founder’s love of the islands and ocean. Palm Trading Co. has created a collection of island style wood watches for like-minded island enthusiasts that allow people to live the island lifestyle and to provide them with a brand that has deep island roots, style and craftsmanship.
All of Palm Trading Co.’s wooden watches are hand-made from all natural materials with the highest level of craftsmanship and attention to detail. From the different varieties of woods used, colors of the hands & dial, to the detailed logo design, each wooden watch is unique within it-self and is sure to please any island enthusiast.
When Dallas Alford, founder of Palm Trading Co. was asked why the company made the decision to wholesale their product line to retailers, he responded by saying ‘When I started Palm Trading Co., my vision was to be an online store that focused on selling our island lifestyle products to our end customers. We never really envisioned offering our products to retailers. Not long after we started, we did a photo shoot with Mango Media in St. Thomas that works with a lot of jewellery boutiques on the island. The boutique owners saw pictures of our watches on Mango Media’s website and approached us about carrying our island style wood watches in their stores. We gave it a go and it was a 100% success for the boutiques and Palm Trading Co. and we haven’t looked back since.”
Palm Trading Co. now has island reps that focus on reaching out to retail stores in the south east (NC, SC, GA & FL) and north east (VA, MD, DC, NY & NJ) to see if they are interested in carrying the Palm Trading Co. product line.
Alford was asked what Palm Trading Co. looks for in a retail store when they decide to approach them about carrying their island style apparel. “We look for retail stores that love the island lifestyle as much as we do. It is important that they understand that we sell a brand that consists of a product line developed for those that love the island lifestyle. If the retail store caters to those that love the island lifestyle, our watches will, without a doubt, be a good fit for their store.”
Alford also stated that Palm Trading Co. is 100% committed to the natural environment that island enthusiasts love so much. The Company supports Oceana, a non-profit organization that is focused on preserving the world’s oceans. Alford says, “It’s crucial that the retail stores we partner with share in the philosophy that it is up to all of us that love the island lifestyle to preserve our oceans and marine environments.”
