Meet Our Co-Founder, Mimi Striplin!

What's the hardest part of owning a shop? Your favorite part?

Hardest: refraining from buying all of the cute pieces from our amazing vendors!

Favorite: having a space of our own-decorating it, choosing the products & transforming it into a place that I would love as a shopper! 

Who is another maker who inspires you?

Nicole from the Cole Card Company here in Charleston- her work is so beautiful & I love her pineapple stitched notebooks!

Favorite song to jam out to while making?

Anything Miley but I usually have the tv on while working from my couch, catching up on Jane the Virgin.

What's your favorite product offering right now, and what was the inspiration behind it? 

Currently loving my Tulley necklace! The navy beads and metallic gold tassel has become one of my favorite pieces to wear on repeat! Charleston’s colorful yet classic style & aesthetic inspires each of my pieces.

What's your biggest piece of advice to offer to someone looking to open a brick and mortar store or start a side business? 

Do it! Take the leap and always remember to  be humble, open to adjustments & don’t get too caught up in life-remember to enjoy every moment!

Check back soon to meet more of our makers, and stop by to see us at 185 A St. Philip Street!

Today we want you to meet Annie, a hard working jewelry designer who has been our vendor for several months.  You can learn more about her "one of a kind coastal jewelry with a vintage twist" on her website, and make sure you follow her on Instagram!

Tell us a fun fact about you/your products:

 I had my first jewelry show at my house when I was 12 years old! I incorporate my grandmother's jewelry into my pieces, and always stop in antique stores when I travel to find old jewls to incorporate into new.  

Tell us a Charleston restaurant you're loving right now: 

I love Sermet's! We always go for our anniversary. 

Who is another local maker you admire?

I have a girl crush on Erin from Sunwoven. Her color palettes and attention to detail are gorgeous.

What's your favorite song to jam out to while you're making?

I binge watch tv shows while I'm making! In the past several months I've watched from start to finish: Friends, The Gilmore Girls, New Girl, and am working on Scandal as we speak.

Tell us about your favorite product right now and the inspiration behind it:

My favorite products are my various freshwater pearl necklaces on chain (either sterling or gold-filled). They are great for everyday but also a nice dressier piece & are available on my website.
