Marion Parke Trunk Show

If my memory serves me correctly, I think Marion Parke is the original brand that launched our trunk show series at The Shoe Hive a few years back. We had just started to carry the line, which had newly launched in 2016. We thought a trunk show was a great way to let our customers […]

Courtyard of Creators

I pride myself on my problem-solving skills. If you asked me my biggest strength, that would be it. Since mid-March those skills have been tested, to say the least – not just for my store, but everything around me.  I’m sure you understand as you are re-arranging everything in your own life.

Inspired by Little Women

Typically when Oscar night rolls around I realize I have turned into my parents and have not seen a single movie that was nominated. When my kids were younger I had the animated category locked up, but no more. I was trying to remember what movies I saw in a movie theater in 2019. The […]

The Raincoat You Need

I wish I had a dollar for every time it’s been raining out and I go to my closet and realize I don’t own an actual raincoat. I have water resistant coats galore but no real-deal, no-kidding raincoat. So, I do what most moms of a 10 and 12-year-old would do: I wear one of […]
