THE STUDIO

THE STUDIO

The daily pinch! Hidden right here on the town line in Newport, RI was the coooooolest old auto garage that we fixed up and made our own. It’s chic and swank and industrial (aka chilly) and is always filled with great music. It affords plenty of room to hide in the aisles of inventory, roller skates defo approved, and the kitchen always stocked with nespresso and chocolate. If only it was easier to hug a building!

THE NUT OF IT ALL

THE NUT OF IT ALL

Working together, growing a business, and hopefully providing people with products that make them very happy is such a blessing. We are so grateful we get to do this.

the 3 brains:
we say we each have one third of a brain and it
really only works when we put them together :)
Chief Creative Officer

Ali

Chief Creative Officer

There is no finer (in our opinion) and more modest artist than Ali. Her artwork uniquely walks the line between beautiful and (ahem) cute. She always seems to know ahead of time what is going to be in fashion, which was apparent in 1988 when she was the first kid in the tri-state area to wear Tretorns. Studying Fine Art and Fashion Design at Massachusetts College of Art, she was asked back to teach Fashion Illustration. While working as the designer at Boston Ballet, she married the tall, strapping cutie down the road in her Boston neighborhood, and now they have two smart, funny creative boys who think she draws too many bears. Some of Ali’s loves include small talk, egg salad, and leftover scallops in the communal microwave.

Chief Executive Officer

Jenni

Chief Executive Officer

Jenni’s desk is indoors only because her cord can’t reach all the way outside. She has a hard time concentrating on nice days, but ever the optimist, she starts her day ridicuously early to fit in all the things she (anally) needs to do everyday, including daily experimental brownies and a subsequent sweaty exercise. Don’t be offended if you never see her out at night, because at exactly 07:59:59pm her eyes glaze over and she’s off to lu lu la la (awkward to find out in college that not everyone uses this name for bedtime.) While studying biology in college, Jenni took a semester to sail on a schooner and never looked back, starting a career sailing private yachts and ended up in Newport selling sailboats. She married a dude from Vermont with whom she fell in love with years before at a dance party. They now have two adorable and wildly energetic boys.

Chief Operations Officer

Pippi

Chief Operations Officer

How does one logjam a high speed computer program? Have Pip type. The cursor will disappear and the computer will start to overheat in its frustration to try and keep up with her superspeed. Hence the reason Pip is in charge of operations.... everything gets done, and quickly. A graduate of Loyola, she taught middle school in San Francisco, the city where she met her witty Brit husband. They relocated to Rhode Island to start their family... it’s arguable that they have the two cutest girls on the planet. Pippi (named this by her family when she was tiny because she was just cutest little pip) is secretly (or not-so-secretly) styling and outfitting everyone she knows- in a good way- not a Mean Girls way (on Wednesday we wear pink!) She has a remarkable talent for making the fanciest coffee (she actually knows why s l o w l y pouring the water makes a difference), dances to remind herself to be nice on the phone, and exists on shopping, ice cream cones, and candy.

THIS BUSINESS ISN'T ANYTHING WITHOUT THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT RUN.
MEET THE TEAM WHO MAKES OUR COMPANY TICK AND OUR HEARTS BEAT.

the artwork (heartwork?)

the artwork (heartwork?)

It usually takes all three brains to come up with the words, but every painting comes from those crazy talented phalanges of our eldest. How many pictures and stories are IN those hands!? To make an idea come to life with beautiful, fine art mixed with funny... we have an insatiable appetite for what's coming next.

We have really cute bandaids here, because paper cuts are real! Our production team is the bomb ass rap song, and keeps this place running, smooth as skippy.

got shades?

got shades?

The east wing, where we let the sun shine in! The phone actually rings up here so the music is great but a tinsy less pumping than in production.
