Playback Sports and the Tacoma Sock

This $3,000 Square Loan financed the design and production of a new piece of inventory.

About the campaign

Playback Sports opened its doors in the winter of 2010 as the only sports consignment store in the South Puget Sound region. Playback Sports sells high quality used sports gear and apparel in a neighborhood store where we strive to offer really great customer service. We want to provide connections between unused gear and those who will use it.

Playback Sports was born from a basement full of gear that needed to get back outside. Two years ago, I left an 8 year career at REI to release the fleece that tends to build up over time. I had seen families and sports enthusiasts investing their time and money over the years in gear that I was certain had become imprisoned in dusty basements and cold garages. I wanted to bring it all together in one place where experts could match the used gear with new users. I’m passionate about gear never becoming a barrier to sport and meet that challenge everyday. There is no greater joy for me than to see a child running with a smile, throwing a ball or achieving a goal. I love the idea that sport is not about the gear but about the mind, body, earth connection that we get from the engagement with sport

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
