Taste of Soul (TOS) is coming—it’s literally right around the corner and will feature vendors galore. This festival is definitely known for its food vendors but you will also find vital information, clothes and a variety of merchandise. Moon Merch will be at TOS this year and they are bringing their brand for the “odd or weird.”

Keisha and Krystal Carter are filling a niche with Moon Merch targeting customers who have a distinct and particular taste.

“Moon Merch offers clothing, jewelry, and accessories that may not speak to the average consumer,” according to the Carter sisters.


“Individuality is our motto—we love expressing ourselves through our merchandise and products, and we hope by doing so it will encourage others to go out and be yourself.”

The Carter sisters are from Long Beach CA, and were raised in Bellflower, CA. Keisha went to school for fashion design and is currently an aspiring bag and clothing designer. Krystal has a history and background in art and has a passion for digital art.

“We both have keen interests in alternative fashion and art,” stated the sisters about their style.

“We both decided to merge our interests and talents together to start our brand Moon Merch.”

Moon Merch was established earlier this year and utilizes both sisters’ creative talents. Together, they had been collaborating for a few years on different projects but then decided on merging together to build a stronger brand together.

Moon Merch will be participating in its first TOS festival come October 20, but the Carter sisters attended the festival a couple years ago.

“We definitely enjoyed the vibe of the festival, and felt we would be a great fit for it,” said the sisters about TOS.


“We enjoyed the food, performances and just the overall energy.

“We are really looking forward to being a part of this monumental event.”

Do you like clothing and items you can’t find anywhere else? Do you have an eclectic sense of fashion? Do you just have a tendency to be drawn to original merchandise that is a little out of the ordinary? Well, you need to visit Moon Merch at TOS!

Make sure you visit Keisha and Krystal’s booth and see what these talented ladies have to offer.

“Creatively we vibe and flow together so well and all of our styles and interest are very closely related,” said the sisters about working together.  “Our brand, Moon Merch, 1000 percent embodies individuality, which is what our brand encourages—not being afraid to express yourself!”
