Kate Lordon, co-owner and jewellery designer, greeted me when I walked through their door Friday afternoon. Her mom, Germaine Doucette is the co-owner and business manager and usually works in the shop on weekends.
Marissa (left)- who also works in the store- with Kate (right).
They were both so friendly and lovely to talk to!
I asked Kate how she got her start designing jewellery. She told me how she started making jewellery a few years ago when her father became ill. She found a creative outlet in this hobby. She started out selling her hand crafted pieces at craft fairs and Rhoda's Flea Market. Silver Daisy Designs is the next big step for her. The boutique has this bright, cute, and creative appeal to it.
I asked Kate to share some of her favourite things with me. I could tell she had a hard time knowing where to start with so many great things within arm's reach.
1. Flip flops that you can customize and personalize!
2. Accessories for your pampered pooch!
3. Colourful pottery by Britto
4. Cake beauty products
4. A unique line of greeting cards
5. All the fixings to design and create your own jewellery!
(at a reasonable cost!)
Kate & Marissa were kind enough to show me around the store. I spend plenty of time browsing and snapping photos. I wanted to share with you some of my favs within Silver Daisy Designs.
1. Matt & Nat bags and wallets
(Are you as excited about this as I am?!)
2. Built neoprene wine tote
3. Girly initial luggage tags
4. Adorable wine corks
5. The selection of China Glaze nail polish
Other cute items you can find within the store:
Tasty-looking cupcake bath bombs
Pretty umbrellas with cheeky messages
Flavourful candles with reusable glasses and drink recipes!
Lots of beautiful home & garden decor
Pretty scarves and pashminas
Built tote lunch bags
Lots of lovely jewellery
Kate is very excited about the a new addition to the store: a quality make-up line called Stila Cosmetics. Stila Cosmetics are based in California, don't test on animals, and recycle their containers. She estimates that you'll be able to see the cosmetic line in-store in a few weeks.
And I didn't even show you a fraction of the jewellery. To see the wonderful pieces by Kate and others she picked up in Maui, you'll have to go and visit her! The lovely little boutique is a wonderful addition to the uptown shopping area. I know it's been added to my list of favourites to visit during my Saturday morning shopping adventures!
This weekend the store is to get a make-over on its exterior! It's being painted blue with silver accent! Can't wait to see it.
Check out my last post, all that glitters, for a look at a pair of earrings designed by Kate of Silver Daisy Designs.
