How would you describe this collaboration?
This is a match made in heaven. Even though these brands are distinctively different when you look at them individually, they share the same ethos while using natural and sustainable materials. I love the fact that they aren’t similar and that the contrast between the two materials creates this absolutely beautiful and organic-feeling piece. Both brands have the same minimal sensibilities and attention to detail in everything that they do.
I’m fortunate enough to work with women I not only respect and adore but I can now call friends. I’ve become friends with every brand I carry, and it comes from a genuine place. I first love what they do and then that passion translates onto a human being. I’m not conscious about it but a large portion of the brands I carry are female-owned. I would say about 90% of the brands in the shop are female run. It makes sense that that we are doing this collaboration around that and for women in the field.
What kind of impact do you hope to have with this collaboration?
The impact is more about exposing these beautiful brands and most importantly, Miami-based brands. A lot of people don’t realize that we have such homegrown talent in our backyard. The quality can stand up to any brand that is out there right now in their respective categories. There is power in coming together, and a force in us coming together. The three of us can have a louder voice when united. These are one-of-a-kind pieces so any person who is lucky enough to own one, will have a heirloom for life. I see them as pieces of art and it is important to show value to these two makers. Jenny and Jessie are both artists at their core.
Why is it important for women to support each other?
I always find this is a tricky question because I’ve never not supported other women. Life wouldn’t be as exciting if you were just on a one-lane highway. The nature of what I do as a shop owner or shopkeeper is nurture the collaborations with other brands whom I love and believe in so that we all flourish together.
I couldn’t have a store if I didn’t have other partners involved and I call them partners because we’re in this together. If we support each other and we do well, we all end up doing well together and that’s one of things that’s so great about owning a shop, it’s a collaborative effort. Its not about you and your brand but rather the brands you choose to carry and who you choose to surround yourself with, that energy translates itself.

Last meal on death row:
Fries from Belgium ( no, they are not from France…), a mâche salad with mayo, a crusty baguette with Jamon Serrano , sliced very thinly and eaten separately but at the same time …not as a sandwich, I mean. I gave up eating pork and beef and only allow myself this a few times a year so most definitely on death row. How did I end up here?
