I’m Parker Forbes, age 18, and I have a dream.
Before I tell you about the company I started, I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I am the youngest of three in my family with two older sisters, Autumn and Ainsley. Next year I will be attending the University of Louisville where I will play on the men’s Soccer team. Not only do I love soccer, but I also love everything sports related. I have made many relationships through sports that will last a lifetime and I think sports have a great way of teaching valuable life lessons. Along with sports, I have a great passion for the outdoors! Rock climbing, hiking, fishing, and swimming are all activities I love to do in the great outdoors. But the inspiration behind my company, Vintage Showtime, stems from my passion for sports.
I created Vintage Showitme as a means of saving for college and as a way of assisting those in need. As you may or may not know, we used to be called Sock Essentials. But after careful thought and consideration we have decided to change our name to Vintage Showtime as it more embodies our mission and goals!
Instead of exclusively selling socks, we now sell a variety of apparel as well as other sports memorabilia such as magazines and sports cards. Additionally, we have made new relationships and have partnered with more organizations in order to extend a helping hand and reach more people in need.
Though our goal remains the same, we are excited about our new partnerships and can’t wait to change lives with your help!
Thanks again for all your support and God bless!
