Fueled by curiosity and the thrill of the hunt, we will seek out creative artists and designers with a story to tell and inspiration to share. We will procure a collection of thoughtful, unique, and “that’s so cool!” invoking goods from these celebrated, independent makers. We will be the special place you go where you know you’re going to find the dress you’ve been looking for, the card that says exactly what your words can’t, and items to fill your home with sentiment and personality.

We will be your treasure chest.

Never one to pass up the opportunity for adventure, in 2002, Jessie Williams packed up her belongings and moved from Chicago to Wilmington, North Carolina. Opening up shop in a tiny 400-square foot space (let’s be honest, it was a storage closet), Jessie started selling handmade clothing accessories designed by her and her friends. Offering up a valuable retail space to other local designers, her business model would act as a launch pad for like-minded, risk-taking, passionate, some people may call them crazy, designers, creators, and artists.
