My New Venture: Morningtide

I'm so excited to announce my new venture, Morningtide, a small retail shop in Albany, CA that I will co-own with my friend and business partner Lisa Fontaine. Morningtide is a lifestyle shop with a vision to carry thoughtfully curated home accessories, gifts, clothing, and jewelry designed and made by independent artists and craftspeople.

We have been so busy and working so hard to make this a tangible reality. With plans to open our doors in early September, we still have a ways to go. We have put together an Indiegogo Campaign to help fund our goal. The money we raise will go toward providing an inviting entrance complete with potted plants and benches, update electrical and make some minor renovations that we were unable to negotiate as part of our lease. Most significantly, we will use our funds for a shop sign and build the retail displays including a dressing room, cash wrap, garment rack, and shelving.

We would appreciate you taking a look at our video and considering a donation. We put together some awesome prizes we feel are a good representation of the products we will carry in the shop. If you're unable to make a donation, feel free to spread the word! And don't forget to follow along on Instagram (!

Thank you so much for your support!
