"Wanna be friends?"
That's how it started, just like we used to make friends in elementary school. We met at the super cute shop West to East on San Marco in St Augustine, where Tana worked for bit after moving here from the Pittsburgh area. I had just moved from Chicago when I met this super friendly and down to earth woman. We immediately made plans to meet at The Reef where we shared a bottle of Chic, our now fav bubbly Rose.
We shared our unique life stores full of twists and turns resulting in life transformations, we listened to each other with open hearts and minds and we let ourselves go with the flow of our quickly forming friendship. Fast forward a mere 5 months to our leap into starting a boutique together.
“...we listened to each other with open hearts and minds and we let ourselves go with the flow of our quickly forming friendship...”
We wanted to create a special place where women could have a unique and comfortable shopping experience in a relaxed setting without pressure and high prices and find items that allow them to feel their own beauty through clothing and accessories that we love to wear ourselves. We found our diamond in the rough at the High Chapparal complex in a house (with the green clock in front) that had been there since the '50s and knew we could make it the destination spot that we had envisioned.
“We wanted to create a special place where women could have a unique and comfortable shopping experience...”
Our vision is for women to come and find fabulous items, be delighted by new finds every time they visit, meet others within our community, and even retreat with a cup of coffee and a biscotti sitting on our porch.
We welcome all women with open arms, open smiles and open hearts.
