Deep South Social is a creative consultancy that represents a curated collection of small to medium sized Southern lifestyle brands.

Born from a love of Southern designed goods, business collaboration and fresh ideas, founders Jessica Berinato (of Breathless Paper Co.) and Ashley Schoenith (of heirloomed) want to help bring these like-minded entrepreneurs together and share how wonderful they are with the world. Our community of Southern brands makes for a collaborative group of amazing companies that continue to appeal to the same audiences, merchandise well together and that support each other along the way.

We truly love working with passionate people to help them take their business to the next level. We support brands with marketing, public relations, design, tradeshow services, sales materials, wholesale representation + more.  Between us, we have over 15 years experience in being business owners, marketing agency, retail store owners & wholesale expertise - but most importantly we are entrepreneurs ourselves who run our own businesses. Through our own efforts, our small businesses have been featured by media outlets such as Oprah, Martha Stewart and a variety of the Southern, shelter, food and lifestyle publications out there, and we have worked with such companies as Nordstrom, Target, Magnolia & Hallmark among many others, as well as a large variety of independent retailers across the country, and world-wide.

If you're a Southern brand yourself and you're interested in taking your business to the next level, we'd love to share more with you about joining our collaborative group. CLICK HERE.
