Our Story

It’s true what they say about strength in numbers. We’re better together. Hi, we’re Emily Peters and Patrick Milford and we run this joint. 

Golden Collective is a partnership personified. As we operated our individual small businesses, we were inspired to create something entirely new and different for the region we love. Using our unique talents, we combined forces to create a lifestyle brand that inspires a sense of pride in where you come from. Golden Collective is a representation of our styles and ideas paired with our love of the Midwest. The perfect amount of sugar and spice.

Our goods are designed and packaged in-house. We also make it a point to collaborate with local makers to ensure the products you love are crafted by neighbors and friends, keeping your hard-earned dollars in the heart of the community. We love where we come from and design pieces around what makes it special.
